Although not modern in appearance and interior, the cosiness of this place outweighs the older presentation. The pools are one of the best in Rotorua, the location is fantastic with plenty of shops across the road, and a very pleasant host. Offering free wifi and a smart tv is a plus. Recommended to all, was our first time and will... More

Stay here on a regular basis with sports teams and family. Excellent facilities with helpful staff, and good value for money. Have also sen the improvements the new owners are making to the complex. Will be back again soon.

We stayed at the Econo Lodge for two nights last week with our two kids. Great location, close to the Lake and the centre. We stayed in one bedroom apartment which was very clean and tidy, there was a free WiFi in a room for up to three devices. Nice outdoor hot pool and playground area for kids.

Nice and tidy, the bathroom and kitchens need updating but they were very clean. Was great to have wifi in the room. The pool is awesome and the owner is really lovely. The unit was very spacious as well.

This is my favourite motel in Rotorua and has been since I used to stay here when I was a rep on the road. I visited again this week, in my retirement, and the new managers, Brij and Ronette, are doing an incredible job in providing warm, caring hospitality and spending big money in keeping it clean, tidy and technically...

Other guests have stayed in the same room you did, immediately before and after your stay. If what you say is true, surely, they would have complained too. We are very disappointed with your review and can't help thinking why you did not bother to talk to us before or at check-out to express your unhappiness with the room. You... More

A good price and fine for a one night stay. Beds, lounge, living/dining area was great. Excellent TV and free WiFi which too many places don't have. Lovely pool too. The main weakness is the kitchen and bathroom facilities which are long overdue for modernisation.

We really enjoyed our stay. Should have stayed some more as the kids really enjoyed dipping and playing in the warm pool. Room was warm and cozy. Location is pretty much near the city and shops. Good Value.

From the moment we checked in our experience was excellent. Gentleman on the front desk, the owner I presume, was friendly, knowledgeable and chatty. Not to mention lollies for the kids( and us). Rooms while older were large, clean and perfectly adequate. A lovely fresh hot water pool and a couple mineral pools as well ...... Couldn't have asked for... More
