Rotovegas Motel was great, we walked in off the street and got a room for two nights. The rooms were nicely decorated and the spa bath was such a great extra. Room had everything we needed and was nice an quite. Short walk from town and free internet access. Highly recommended :)

Tryna find a unit that can handle an active family of 7 is not too easy but rotovegas looked afta us well. Appreciated the playground, pool and spa to keep kids entertained. Comfortable rooms. A walk away from CBD and everything we needed perfect!

We spent one night at RotoVegas Motel and thoroughly enjoyed a long, relaxing soak in a private spa in the unit. The unit itself is a little dated and missing a couple of comfortable chairs. The bed was comfortable and even for a roadside unit it was very quiet.

We really enjoyed our stay at the British Themed studio. Phil and Carey were very friendly and helpful giving us good tips and suggestions for things to do near/around Rotorua. The studio was properly stocked with kitchen supplies and made it easy to make meals with a supermarket across the street. We particularly liked the fact that we had two... More

We stayed one night in one of Rotovegas retro spa-rooms. While it wasn't huge, it was perfect for just two people. Our room was clean and tidy with extra towels for the spa. There were plenty of power outlets and a well-stocked kitchenette. The receptionist was very friendly and even gave us vouchers for some of rotorua's tourist activities. The... More

We had a fantastic stay at the Rotovegas Motel! Perfect for kids, close to town, great facilities and our room was very clean. The staff were so friendly and helpful - they really made our stay there special and went out of their way to accommodate us. Excellent value for money - would highly recommend!

The good : good location ( although dozens of other motels are next door, so it isn't unique), huge spa bath in the rooms which include it. The bad: room relatively small; floor wasn't clean enough (cleaned it again myself, first time it ever happened to me..$ - and could definitely use a renovation. Bottom line - not a disaster,...

This was a nice place to stay with great location. Very friendly staff and the quirky 60's-70's fun/funky rooms were a treat. The room and bathroom was very nice and clean. The walls were a bit thin and I could hear how much beer the guy downstairs drank the night before. A great value for money otherwise.

This is by far the best motel we have ever stayed. The lady that helped check us in was amazing and very sweet! On our first day my girlfriend and I were figuring out what to do and she suggested a Maori village and she not only explain what is was about but she also booked us a reservation. The... More
