Nice spacious room. New owners are very nice and are working hard to update all the units. We found the room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom and kitchen desperately need updating. The motel is quite near the shops and amenities.

After trying to other hotels/motels we happened upon a motel that we consider the best ever wonderful clean and spacious rooms. Spa was amazing clean and warm. Sharon and Glenn were the perfect hosts. We would and will recommend this motel to all our friends and relative and we will certainly be back there soon.

The owner Sharon is friendly and gave us very helpful tips for enjoying Rotorua. The room was in good shape, clean, lots of light and comfortable. The location was conveniently on Fenton and easy to find. We looked an a bunch of places in the same price range and felt Apex was the best.

So glad that you were able to do and see many of the things around Rotorua and that we were able to be of some help in directing you and assisting with discounts. Our rooms definitely are bright and sunny and spacious in the Studios and happy that you appreciated it. Many thanks Glenn and Sharon More
