Nice hotel, very clean beds very comfortable. Quiet location with very little road noise. Located in walking distance to Thai Chef (recommended, great food) and a small mall with other shops (New World and some takeaways). Never used pool but would be good for families not for anyone wanting to do some laps though. Free wifi is good but 500mb... More

The room was large. In fact we had two bedrooms and a large bathroom. There was plenty of hot water and the rooms were very clean. It's easy to drive into Napier from the motel. Despite being on a main road, there was no traffic noise to be heard in the room. The only downside was the WiFi connection only... More

We stayed for 4 nights in a one bed apt. Had everything we needed . Full kitchen. Very clean fully serviced before we arrived back each day. Everything was refilled and replaced. Quiet too. Liked how you didn't have staff bugging you. We liked not being right in town but was close enough, to most suburbs and the way to... More

We have stayed at this property every time we are in Napier - 3 times over the last 3 years, the rooms are impeccably clean and well maintained – also the daily turndown/room cleaning is of a high standard. The bathrooms are a generous size and owners really go out of their way to ensure your stay is a pleasant... More

Do not understand the review from De-em of New Zealand. There are no particular views from this motel, certainly not from the ground floor, CERTAINLY not of Gisborne, which is many Kilometres away! Some confusion there! This was our second visit to Deco City, and we were just as impressed as before. This is not a 1930s building, but only... More

First impression not great but on closer expection the room was clean and cared for. Very old appearance,with a noisy bar fridge and a flashing corner light (when turned off!!!). But overall the room was good value and the bathroom clean.

Lovely large, spotlessly clean well equipped rooms and comfy beds. Large bathrooms and good showers. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only reservations I have are 1. The location of the property is not quite as close to the downtown area of Napier as they like to claim - it's a good hours walk to the town centre / promenade... More

Thanks for your comments, unsure which way you walked to Napier but it way obviously not the correct way. It is about 45 minutes walk in to the city and that is what we tell our guests. It is only a 5-6 minute car ride and that depends on the traffic lights. Wi-fi you are correct and we do pay... More

We stayed for 1 night in December 2014 and I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed based on other Tripadvisor reviews. We arrived a bit early at 1.00 pm with check in at 2.00pm but thought we'd just try our luck. Being a busy time of year, the room was not ready but the lovely lady in the office... More

Thanks for your comments, but the units have been updated and in the last 18 months new King Koil beds were installed, air condioning installed, most furniture either replaced or recovered, new spreads and the list goes on. You did choose to go into a 1 bedroom and pay more where as a studio would of been more than acceptable.... More
