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

Took the family to Rotorua and stay here. The hosts were very good and let us have an early check in. We had a large group which the owners were very accommodating and very good price. For those with a large group, this is the place to stay! We will be back!

The manager is lovely and was more than happy to accommodate us. The room was cold and never really heated up, and there was no blind on the skylight above the bed which made it very drafty. The spa bath was great. Overall it's budget accommodation and you get what you pay for.

There are a lot of motels in Rotorua making it difficult to pick the best one for our limited budget. I booked the Ace Motor Lodge because it sounded OK and it was cheap. This was a mistake. Our room was small, dingy and battered. There was a smell of mould. While the motel advertises private spa baths, all we... More
