I had a business meeting and my son was able to walk to all the activities he want to do. We were able to find our way to and from the motel to where we wanted to go with ease. The motel was clean and had everything we wanted.

Units have full kitchen and are fairly spacious. However the bathroom is tiny as, sliding doors are used to separate shower, toilet and kitchen. It has free wifi and parking space. It is walking distance to art deco streets of Napier. It was very quiet at night, you'll definitely get a good night's sleep. Owners are very nice people.

Only stayed one night here, but found the location of the motel was excellent, and the staff were friendly. It was exactly what we wanted and expected from our stay. The room was pretty clean and although some furniture was a bit outdated, that didn't cause any issues. We impressed with the room service breakfast prices, although we had other... More

We inquired at the i-site in Napier about a room for the night with free WiFi. And were booked into a room at City Close. It turned out to be a good location for going into the city center to check out all the beautiful art deco buildings. There is a huge grocery store within walking distance. The room we... More

We chanced upon City Close Motel purely by accident. The unit was very clean, tidy, and for a 3 night stay over a long weekend, this worked out well. It is a 3 star property, basic, but comfortable with TV, stove, microwave, fridge , off street car parking, and laundry facilities. Bedside lamps turned on / off by touching them... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment that has definitely seen better days. The furniture dates back to the 1960s/70s and is quite a shock to someone who is younger than that. The standard of cleanliness was ok and the receptionist very friendly.

Very close to town and supermarket. Clean and tidy units even though there dated. Nice to have a fan in the room for those hot nights. Could have done wiith a information booket in the units with details of things to see and do.

The motel is close to the centre of Napier. The hosts were very friendly and we were given fresh milk on checki-in. There is a reasonable kitchen area in the double unit. We found the place rather dated, especially the shower room. However, it was fine and clean. The unit was quite tight for space. The motel was busy as... More
