I'm not sure why they haven't come up with a nicer name for this quaint little inn. 540 Motel certainly doesn't do it justice. How about Otahuhu Inn? 540 Motel doesn't look like much as you're driving up, and the lobby is minimal. But we enjoyed our two night stay. They advertise a free airport shuttle, but be aware that...

Thank you for your feedback. As explained to you the Free shuttle operates at certain times of the day for arrivals and departing guests with flights, outside of these times or for guests not flying they need to arrange a Taxi or Shuttle. You advised that you were not flying and wanted to go to a rental car company instead.... More

My daughter and I stayed the night for Ed Sheeran's concert. We were impressed that a shuttle bus had been organised for guests to get to the venue at Mt Smart and was waiting for us to return. But what blew us away, was upon our arrival back at the motel at midnight,,not only was the motelier at the door... More

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
