The room had a Rodent in it ! When the room was serviced, they hang the dirty used towels back on the rack rather then washing them ! Manager man - John, was Grumpy and never smiled. Seemed permanently angry or annoyed that he had to work. The room had what was suppose to be a Queen size bed, however... More

This motel is in a good location in the sense that it has some decent restaurants and supermarket nearby, while at the same time being airport-accessible. The room itself was totally fine for me and my brother and had everything we needed (beds, big bathroom, and small kitchenette that was sufficient for what we needed it for). However, I did... More

Does what it says on the tin. Everything we needed was available. Comfortable bed and not too far from the airport. Just be aware there are several 540 on the Great South Road - each district has its own- turn up at the right one or you'll get a really nice Chinese man on the doorstep - we thought we... More

The reviews for this hotel are mainly good and influenced our decision to stay here, but relate to other rooms that may be acceptable to the single/couple traveller. In my opinion, the family room that we stayed in is obviously not up to the same 4 star standard.The bathroom was tidy (although the toilet roll holder was broken). The staff... More

We`d stayed for some nights at the 540 Motel and it was ok.The room we`ve had was an economy room,very small.The room comes with kitchenette,tv and a fridge.The motel is located in a southern suburb of Auckland,but you can go with the public bus or train to the Auckland CBD. The owners were friendly and helpful.

This motel is well located, well priced and our room was very comfortable. Booked through Wotif and it seemed to be the best accommodation choice available. Hosts were friendly and obliging. Our room was cleaned each day, no problems. I would recommend this motel and certainly look forward to returning on our next visit to Auckland. The motel seemed to... More

We stayed here for one night. Staff pleasant, room clean, no road noise to speak of. The only negative was the foldout bed our daughter slept on, it was not at all comfortable but easily sorted by putting the mattress on the floor! Would stay again.

My friend and I shared a twin studio room from the 21st August for three nights and also made extensive use of the Motel's side-business, a shuttle service! Transfers from the airport are free, and must be sorted with the staff beforehand. Sam, the owner was absolutely wonderful, and was very helpful at sorting pre-booked shuttles for us and making...
