After a long day in hospital with our young daughter we were on the look out for a cheap motel for the night. Motel Six does look fairly budget from the road and it is on a very busy road but we were price drivin so I walked in to enquire about rooms. The lady host was very pleasant and... More

We liked the very warm welcome by the host and always ready to help us. The studio was very comfortable and clean with all the facilities. It is located very close to two super markets of the town was real practical.

The welcolm was very friendly, The room was large, kingsize bed and very clean, lovely fluffy towels. We were at the back of the building and it was very quiet. I have no complaints. I would certainly stay here again and consider it good value.

Stayed here for 2 nights, first impression was it looked very cheap outside and the decor looks extremely dated. However, the rooms were very clean and spacious, the wifi was good and cheap ($6 for 24hrs), and there is also SkyTV which is a great addition for a cheap motel. The final grumble I have is that on the second... More

This hotel is clean. There is room for us all to sleep.It is very 1970s, complete with bedspreads and nylon sheets. The beds are wobbly and tiny. When extra sheets were requested, to make up the sofa bed, we were regarded quizzically with a "But there are five beds for the five of you'.....the hostess disregards the fact that the... More

Clean and tidy - and that stainless steel bench top shined! Staff friendly. Room was large and spacious. A little dated - yet good value. Considering on a main road - unit was quiet. Breakfast and a newspaper right on time...

Have just spent 2 nights at Motel Six while daughter in hospital. Hosts great and units immaculate. Why use a mirror when the stainless steel is so shiny! Will be back. Good to have a full kitchenette. Well equipt. Pat B

I booked a studio room for an overnight stay at Motel Six in Whangarei. The motel looked nice on the web site but I didn't know that the studio rooms were tucked away round the back right by the back of the primary school classrooms. The room was tiny with no outlook at all. Room was clean but duvet was... More

This place was good value and would happily stay there again. Friendly people, huge rooms. Beds comfortable. Decorations a little dated but that's a comment rather than a complaint. Spotlessly clean. The room had a fully equiped little kitchenette with oven and stove top and microwave so you could cook tehre if necesary. It was very reasonably priced too. Thanks
