It takes a lot to impress me but this motel did just that! Very friendly reception and easy check in. The rooms were large, very clean and modern. The little things made this place a cut above - like complimentary REAL milk not the UHT cartons, lovely fur cushions and throw on the bed, top quality comps like biscuits hot... More

This motel is on the main road into Napier, it has a modern look and the room I had was large with everything you need. A very friendly lady checked me in and although it was full with 'no vacancy' I was still able to park outside my room. The room had a large corner bath and easily controlled heating... More

I have stayed at Deco City Motor Lodge many times (business mostly) and rate it highly. A warm welcome, clean modern rooms that ticks all the boxes. The real difference is lots of little touches that make a good experience great - every time. Don't bother looking at the others - this is the one. Great parking and access to... More

We really love this place, the bed is so comfy we didn't want to leave. The room is refurbished nice and clean and so spacious. We were so impressed with the owner that he gave us so helpful tips around Napier and the region. We sure will come back again.

Recently stayed for two nights. The motor lodge is located a short drive from the main city centre of Napier. Parking is free and out front of the rooms. We stayed in an upstairs room . It was basic but clean and quite large. The room contains a kitchenette with fridge and coffee and tea facilities. There is a supermarket... More

A little surprised on the review, I can not fathom why you would call the unit basic. It has black out drapes, kitchenette with 4 sizes of glasses, plunger coffee, new flat screen TV and DVD player, business desk, of course table and chairs in keeping with the WOW factor, new king koil beds, air conditioning, and that is for...

We loved staying here, a bit out of town, for the ArtDeco Weekend in 2014. Lots of fun old cars in the parking lot, and people dressed in costume. The room was nicely appointed, with a huge tub. We loved having a pool as well. Front desk staff was warm and welcoming and very helpful in pointing out hints to... More

Room has a kitchenette, spa tub and nice patio. We were only there overnight but we felt very at home. Continental breakfast was delivered to the room and the night we arrived the office gave us a menu for a great Thai restaurant that delivered dinner in under 20 minutes. Would happily return for a longer holiday.

We enjoyed staying at the Motel for the night as we were there for an AGM. Spacious room, tastefully decorated and very clean. Great hosts who were very friendly and helpful. Didn't try the spa bath as we didn't have time enjoying ourselves at Napier. Easy access to and from Napier. Will return. Rabhaw

Clinton and Robyn run a friendly clean and comfortable establishment. Realistically priced and great value from local proprietors who know the local area well. I am a regular guest here and will continue to be so as long as the current service is maintained. ****
