My wife and I stayed a night here after a long drive up from Te Kuiti because it was cheap and easy to get to from the Motorway. We were pleasantly surprised by the room which (even though it had two big columns running through it) was comfortable and well laid out with the bed partitioned off. The sofa was... More

This was a last minute booking as the rest of town was full for a Rod Stewart Concert (really???). We booked late and, as we were extremely late getting in, were appreciative of the fact that the reception was still open. The room was tidy, if a little unusually shaped but was clean and tidy. I'd recommend this place if... More

We just stayed overnight for the Eagles Concert as the city was booked out for Saturday. The hosts were lovely and provided a shuttle to the concert and it ended up a better proximity to the stadium than the city. Very clean, service with a smile, well decorated, and comfortable beds - all we wanted

Blown away with the great service provided by 540. Stayed for The Eagles concert buses were organised to take us there and pick us up. The man at the counter (sorry didn't get your name) was outstanding and went the extra mile. Nothing was a problem and he was very helpful. The family room was clean and tidy but it... More

We stayed here over the weekend of the Foo Fighters concert and it was great! We had no idea on how we were going to get to the concert and the Motel had Shuttle services organised to and from Mt Smart! Great rooms and thanks to the staff for organising transport! We were able to get an early check in... More

We recently arranged bookings for some staff members through our travel management service providers. The reservations were re-confirmed by email to the correct email address for Motel 540 reservation (re-tested within the last couple of days). On arrival at Motel 540 our staff members were advised that no bookings were held for them. After a four hour road trip to... More

Hotel is an old nursing home converted to a hotel. Area is industrial with no attractions near by. A few minutes from airport but much better options closer then this one. Room we had was terrible for the price, would not stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here for over a month with our 2 children. The staff have been exceptional to say the least. Always accommodating to our needs and very helpful. Everyone here is so friendly and cheerful. My kids made friends with the owners and the very pleasant bubbly cleaning ladies. The room we stayed in was of a... More

Be aware that early departure is NOT possible after arrival. Noisy because it is on Great South road and window are thin. Nice big bathtub room 28. But it won't be clean during your stay. Nice soft bed sheet. poor sofa from the 80s.
