NOT WORTH THE PRICE OF MY INTERNATIONAL PHONE CALL! Though I didn't stay here, I called to enquire about accommodation in this area. A young girl 'Jessica' answered the phone, the first call I was hung up on. The second call she was rude, arrogant, extremely inhospitable and suggested I call somewhere else when I asked to talk to someone... More

Stayed 1 night en route to somewhere else. Treated to a loud and obscene domestic row for 1.5hrs early morning. Although owner on site nothing was done. The prices here offer this sort of risk. The room was tired but clean and not as large as others I have stayed in. Not much else to say really, just tired from... More

While the hosts are very nice people the Motor inn is not. The Motor Inn advertises they have day rooms, and there were certainly some interesting people using them. We ensured our door was locked all times when were at the motor inn and were pleased our children were not there to witness the "interesting People". It was sort of... More

We booked this motel for a week but cancelled after one night. Motels in NZ usually provide more space than hotels, but this room reminded me of Paris hotel rooms with barely enough space to open a suitcase. It was roughly clean but an ugly spider running under a crevice made me uncomfortable and the smell of the cleaning detergent... More

We stayed in Room 218, upstairs at end of block. Clean and tidy, close to parking area on grass around the back of the motel. Only 10 minutes drive into the city. Reasonable for the price. Quiet considering proximity to busy road. Rooms could be better equipped, but we have stayed in cabins for not much less, so good overall.

We had an upstairs room which was clean and tidy. We were originally worried about the men working on cars in the garages next door as they were revving engines etc , but this stopped early on . The rooms could be better equipped but for the price we were happy. travelling around NZ we've paid a lot more for... More

Have stayed here two times, first experience was better then the last - had a nice cosy room upstairs, it was clean, the bed was comfortable and was warm for the night!! Reception was welcoming - 24 hour reception was handy as we didn't decide to book and stay until about 10.30pm. My second experience wasn't as pleasant as my... More

A cosy place to stay as I was only in town for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Would stay again if I visit Auckland again.

I've stayed here twice now, the owners have made me feel welcome both times, the room was adequate to my needs, and the location is fine, not too close to the city, but not too far to drive. It does me.
