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... More

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

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

I spent one night in room 15 with my 9-year old niece and for the price this was adequate, but very basic accommodation. The room and bathroom were quite small and tight, so I wouldn't recommend it for longer stays, but for one night it was fine. Good bed. Bigscreen TV parallel to bed made it awkward to watch, but...

After being royally screwed over by our original accommodation, and with very limited options, this motel saved our butts from being stranded. The price was very reasonable, and we were able to get an airport transfer at 5am which was a Godsend. Do not let the exterior fool you, inside it is very nice and comfortable, and I slept like...

The room was big with nice decor. There was a microwave and fridge which was useful, plus a television with some sky channels. Lots of power plugs around the place. The room was clean, however the bathroom needed a good scrub, as the was a bit of grot build up.

We chose Sai Motel because we were attending a function in the area and wanted the closest possible accommodation (ie walking distance). I wasn't expecting great things because of the LOW price and slightly dodgy looking exterior. However, we were extremely happy with the room and it was exactly what we were after - good sized room which was clean... More

For a very reasonable price I got a fairly basic but good-sized, clean and well equipped room (including fridge, microwave, crockery) in the Penrose business area. The staff were extremely friendly and always there to help. Shops and restaurants are a ten minutes walk away near Ellerslie train station which also offers frequent train services to Auckland city center (the... More
