The guy at reception seemed a bit eccentric. He was friendly but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time in his company. Cheap (and inclined to say "and nasty").The rooms are large and reasonably clean, although it looked like the vacuuming had been skipped when it was last serviced. The decor was every shade of green and had... More

It's cheap. It was only $98 per night for me. The rooms are clean. There is a beautiful swimming pool, spa pool, pool table, trampoline and wi fi. All free ! Can't complain about that. I was in whangarei for the half marathon, so to have a free spa afterwards was just fantastic ! There is also a laundry ($2).... More

The reception was friendly and very cooperative, the Motel was cheap and located on a 15 minute walk to the town center. The rooms were clean and spacious. The washingmachine and the dryer worked OK. Not much more to add. Yes, one thing: wifi is free for 15 minutes, no longer. This is a good motel for 'just one night'... More

I recently had the pleasure to stay at the Casa Blanca Motel with 2 other adults and 16 boys from Matamata College, playing a secondary schools football tournament in Whangarei for four days. The rooms were perfect for our group, well serviced and wonderfully clean. The Motel owners went to the extra effort of washing and drying our playing strip... More

Stayed with the Morrinsville golf group and was blown away with the friendly service, the size of the complex and the size of the rooms. Parking and room to move was exceptional. May not sparkle like five stars but was very clean and in great condition. Location is close to the central city and shops are a short walk away.... More

Based on the experience of my group of 16 (men) golfers, I highly recommend the Casa Blanca. Sure the motel is not the most up to date but very clean, comfortable and warm with all the amenities required. What made it special for us was the hospitality offered. The managers/operators went out of the way to dry out wet weather... More

We only stayed for two nights but this was easily the most space we got from any of the motels we stayed in during our New Zealand trip. The hosts were very welcoming and encouraged us to use the (very decent sized) pool even though it was technically after hours. The grounds are a nice setting, feels like a small... More

it's a lovely place to stay. Gay &graham are such wonderful people and provided a great service for my complementary stay at Casablanca. Loved the location of where it's situated not far from all amenities. I hate to do this but the decor is outdated it reminds me of my house (paint scheme wise), Layout of rooms is ok but... More
