Stayed here a few nights in December 2014. Had one of the two storey rooms at the front. Had great wifi service, all the required amenities, very comfortable beds with electric blankets, great tvs and fresh towels daily. Staff are friendly and will help in anyway possible. Plenty of parking and no complaints.

We had a good stay for the NRL nines, the motel is a quite dated but very clean. Totally suited our needs as we were out all day. It was good to have sky and very reasonably priced stay! It's only a short walk to the great cafes in Mt Eden. The staff were friendly and very helpful!

Stayed a night up here over the weekend of the Auckland Nines League Tournament. Had read 1 or 2 not so nice reviews and thought oops may have booked a lemon here. Turns out the room was lovely and clean with everything we would expect for the price. Nice location if you don't mind a stroll into the city, lots... More

We walked off the street to get a booking at this hotel. Not a bad room for the price. We had 2 rooms for the three of us which was good as we are finding that for a couple and 1 child both the beds are often in the same room. The spa room was outside and quite old but... More

We came over from Australia for the world speedway round in April. We had a hire car so this motel was within easy distance of the track. Also within a 5 minute drive was a major shopping centre. Room was clean and simple. Had internet access. A bit dated but priced accordingly. Back enough off of the road so was... More

I must admit it was a nice experience to be close to ASB Showgrounds with good clean accommodation. Pity that the youngsters upstairs decided to wake us up each night at midnight coming back from town :) But overall was simple, clean and yes even with the wake ups I am pretty sure we would use it again :)

We walked in and booked a room for two of our relatives from overseas about two weeks before their arrival. The reception lady promised a room for us at that time and also took our credit card number for the reservation. However when we called them again in the morning on the guests' arrival day to reconfirm the room, we... More

Stayed here during our weekend to the NRL 9's at Eden Park, were abit worried about what we would find when we turned up after reading previous reviews. Place is pretty run down and old school but hey we were only there too sleep. It is a short walk to the bus stop (airport express) on Mount Eden Road and... More

Booked into this motel with a group of friends for the night before heading out of Auckland. Main attraction was the location. Got there to find a run down 80s concrete block / jungle, which apparently has only limited out water. Seeing as we were only staying for one night we decided it was easier to simply put up with...

Tired, not overly clean. Hot water appalling. Ran out after 2 min shower. At $195 a night for 3 adults and a 4 year old very poor value. No hairdryer. Heater barely adequate for size. Would never stay again. After complaining was offered another unit but no doors on bedrooms. Owner did have a wee clean while we were out... More
