We stayed here for 4 nights in December and must say that we did enjoy the hotel. Our only slights confers were out of the hotels control. For example the parking is quite difficult to get out of it the car park is full. The room walls are rather thin and you're able to hear a pin drop in adjoining... More

We have just had another wonderful night at Motel Six. Once again the unit was absolutely spotless and the hosts great. Will definitely be back again. The fact that the motel is within walking distance of supermarkets and places to eat is most convenient.

Bathroom had mini fridge, sink, large counter, two burner stove. Set up so you could stay for a while. Free WiFi (have to get a code from the... More

This motel was very good value for money with good sized rooms, in a good location and had a hot tub! It suited us perfectly for a short stay as we visited Whangarei. Great for a one or two night stop over.

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.
