For one night, my husband and I stayed in Room # 4 which was a nice, clean and newly renovated room. The bed was excellent, we both slept soundly that night and the bathroom (toilet and shower) really looked nice and updated. Loved that it's got free (and fast!) wifi and cable tv. Staff was also very accommodating. We'd stay... More

Yes this is a budget motel, and yes it seems to have had good reviews so this is why I booked this motel, but I really didnt find this place to be anything but somewhere that is clean and that has good wifi. I definately didnt get a 'refurbished' room, and it was very old, and very dated. The shower... More

For the past 12 months i have been a regular guest at the autolodge motel and i cannot speak highly enough of it. The owners are always friendly and helpful, its great value for money, the wifi is amazing, the tv has all the sky channels and the air con just tops it off.

Stayed at almost 20 places in NZ and this is the only place we found that gave great quality internet. No vouchers, limits, or poor signal. Each room has its own wireless router for excellent signal. If decent internet is a priority of yours, look no further.

Auto Lodge Motel is old. I was badly scolded in the shower when the water temperature suddenly went from warm to burning hot with no warning. I was able to move quickly, but the scald was painful & required treatment- luckily the water was not on my face or head at the time, a child or an elderly person would... More

We stayed in this motel for two nights in December while visiting friends. It is an odd mix - great airconditioning, quick wifi, very large parking areas, and huge TV but also dated interiors that seemed to have survived from an earlier era (my spouse says they are from the 1980s but I think late 1970s might be closer to...
