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

Stayed one night with friends in this motel. We enjoyed it and everything we needed was provided. So nothing really to complain about. This is a budget accomodation and the price serves well to its amenities. The owners are easy to deal with. Gave us discount when I told them we had seen better deal at Wotif. So I was... More

Hey this is a budget hotel after all so you do get what you pay for. Although not located in the very heart of town still walking distance from the city centre. A great base to see the sights of beautiful Rotorua. We had the "Star Gayser" we could see the stars at night when it's clear, but if you... More

There were 3 adults staying a couple and one extra, we asked for a two bedroom room and agreed to the 2nd bedroom being upstairs without seeing it. There was no door and when the 3rd adult came down the stairs he banged his head twice on the overhang. In the bathroom, I was the shorty and was the only... More

The rooms are small but you get what you pay for and the beds are comfortable and the rooms are warm I enjoyed the use of the spa bath to relax in. You get to park close to your unit and for $70 the price equals what you get no real cooking facilities only a microwave so what you save... More
