My family and I were getting off farm to relax during the busy calving season. We thought (thought is bold and underlined three times) that this would be a good place to just relax. Not even close. First, we made an online booking, arrived and then were told at reception they didn't have a record of our booking because their... More

If you ever visit Rotorua do not stay at Ace Motor Lodge. Booked a room online that specifically said it had a stovetop. Arrived to find no stovetop! The lady clearly knew what we were talking about and was using the language barrier as an excuse to rip us off. She told us if we want a room with a... More

After looking around in the main road and finding motels upwards of $130, we found the Ace Motorlodge which was only $80 and included free wifi! Easy check in/out, and located near the Ploynesian Spa and the town Center. Only our second day on our vacation, his place was a good find. Very quiet room.

We usually choose to stay here when we go to Rotorua and have stayed here about 4 times before. It's run by a friendly Korean couple, the family room/apartment is like a cosy little home away from home. Sure, it's simple faded early 90s decor, but it's comfy and clean and really quite affordable, I probably wish I can keep... More

We booked online for 3 nights, paying upfront. We were given room number 10 which has a large skylight over the bed. It was a bit cold due to the draft from the skylight and the heater didnt work, but we didnt mind. The first morning we both woke up with a couple of bites on our stomachs, arms, hands... More

We paid under $80 p/night and we were more than happy with the accommodation. We had a room facing Fenton St (a main road), but we had no issues with road noise. We are from Sydney though. Nevertheless, we had a great sleep! We arrived early and were allowed an early check-in. The bed was a little old, but comfortable.... More

We found this hotel suited our needs, somewhere to shower and sleep. It had everything we needed.The spa was a bonus. Good sized clean room although the bed linen smelt a little musty. Would stay here again.

Classic Kiwi motels are pretty basic. Bed, tele, bathroom, fridge, tea/coffee supplies. This fits the bill to a 'T' and was a good place to overnight as I traveled through the area. Room was clean comfortable and came with limited wifi. If you are on the road in NZ don't shy away from these classic motels, they can be quite... More

We spent two nights here. It was quite clean in here, but not too clean. We also were surprised by the fact that one wall of the room (inn which the entrance is) is made of glass and you need to close it with curtain to hide yourself from the corridor. But it was chip and for such price this... More

Don't stay in units 9 or 10. These have a huge skylight with no blind, which means you wake at daybreak. Was not informed of this, so changed next day to Unit 4 (road frontage) which was a major improvement all round.. Units are 1960s décor & are old and tired. Needs major facelift. Other than microwave no cooking facilities.... More
