Academy was very clean and tidy. Great location, close to Town. The hosts were very accommodating. It was no problems to leave our trailer parked at Academy during our stay. My family would be more than happy to stay there again.

Lovely clean and tidy motel with fantastic hosts and great facilities. It was a little noisy with the main road right there, but soon got used to it.

Such a great motel, very clean, tidy, great rooms, fantastic pool area and lovely grounds. The hosts were awesome, very accommodating giving our large group use of their conference room for the weekend. I would recommend this motel for anyone wanting a relaxing place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights with a pipe band group. Kelvin and Gladys were awesome hosts. Nothing was a problem. They gave us the use of their fantastic conference room with kitchen area attached. This allowed us to have all our meals, and socialise together as well. We have stayed in many hotels for our band nationals over the... More

I was lucky enough to be travelling with a group of people to Tauranga and the Academy Motor Inn was the place we stayed at. The rooms were lovely, The complex itself was great and the service we had from the owners was excellent. I would gladly recommend this place to anybody wishing to stay in Tauranga

This is one of the best motels I've ever stayed at. We stayed for 2 nights in room 11 so we were in what I found to be the quietest part of the motel as our room was in the corner of the complex. For the price you get extremely great value, a spacious bathroom, separate shower, spa bath, oversupply... More

My whole family basically took up all the rooms in the complex (except one, feel sorry for them haha). Everything in the complex was awesome, as it catered to all of our needs, we were close together, rooms were fantastic, felt safe as well.

Best motel for a good night's sleep. Comfortable bed and pillow, everything very clean and fresh, comfortable temperature on a hot day, and surprisingly quiet. Our room had double glazing. Friendly hosts. Thank you Gladys and Kelvin.

Thank you for your second review. You were true to your word that you would be back. We are pleased that you had a good night's sleep.
