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.

The room looked very worn out and dirty. The pictures looked nothing like the room, except for maybe the bathroom. The foldout couch was terribly dirty and dusty. The sheets looked clean but they had this choking perfume smell. We definitely did not sleep very well due to the traffic outside. The receptionist wasn't too friendly either. We were only... More

Overall the unit was lovely. The only thing letting it down was the fold out couch that was hideously stained and old. Paint in the room needs a bit of a touch up as is looking worn, chipped and paint colours didn't match where touch ups had been applied. The bed was comfortable and the cooked breakfast I ordered was... More

We stayed here 3 nights while my husband was studying in Auckland. Location was pretty handy, not far off the motorway. It's not a great area right outside, but close to places to eat and bus stop right outside which takes you into CBD. Fairly quiet at night time. Not massive rooms, but def comfortable and clean and just right... More
