A clean, comfortable and quiet motel not too far from the city and on a main bus route. Friendly staff and recently renovated well-equipped air-con rooms (at least ours was) with kitchenette. We were a little hesitant when booking because the price was so low, but it's just a case of VFM

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Auckland for the Foo Fighter concert. The motel was simple but clean and well appointed with everything we needed. So close to great eateries and the perfect spot to access Mt Smart Stadium.. Staff where helpful in arranging a taxi to the venue for us ( just a $10 fare to get... More

Checked in late, Staff member was very efficient and got me into bed in no time at 1am!! Room was clean and whilst maybe a little dated still very comfortable and even better than I had thought. Parking was good as well and reception staff were more than happy to help out, would definitely recommend if you're not after something... More

This motel is a very good option if you're on a tight budget. While the rooms and facilities are adequate for an quick overnight stay, it wouldn't be somewhere I would choose to stay if it was any longer than that. I like to think that I'm not a snob but it does have a slightly uneasy ambience about it.... More

A cheap option for an overnight stay in Auckland without paying central Auckland prices. Reception staff member was helpful and friendly. Bed very comfortable, though no extra blankets were provided, and it was a bit chilly. Motel is close to town, and to the motorway. Wendy's and other cafes are just over the road. Car-parking is free, though tight for... More

The Sail Motel is ideal for short stays. The first impression is not great as it looks a bit run down. We shared our queen room with our adult daughter. An extra bed was put in the room but it didn't feel crowded. Both the room and the bathroom, although dated, were clean. The room is basic but there was... More

I stayed here over a few days at Easter. On arrival, the general facade of the place looks a bit lacklustre, but you would be pleasantly surprised! The rooms were relatively modern and well appointed, right up to spec with other accommodation options that you'd pay a lot more for in Auckland. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The...

Sometimes you just don't understand why a motel does some things fine while the rest of it is quite poor. We stayed at this motel for a couple of nights while a small renovation was happening at home. For that purpose this motel is adequate. But why, you ask yourself, does a motel have two very comfortable lazy boy chairs... More

On our holiday in NZ we stayed 1 week at the Sai Motel located at 385 Great South Road, Auckland. We were very satisfied with our stay and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced, comfortable, clean, place with friendly staff in Auckland. The pleasant cleaning staff keep the motel very tidy & clean. The... More
