What a shock, tired, dirty, when asked for milk, there wasn't any, asked to book breakfast, before we saw unit, glad we didn't get one! Told he had none. From the minute we opened the door we knew it was a disaster and with Nelson booked out, we were stuck there for the night . Dirty bedspreads, damp, housekeeping neglected... More

Wish I had reviewed this place before we stayed. Nothing good about it at all. Beds hard, ants ++, no toiletries, have had better shower pressure with a solar shower. Noisy fridge which we had to turn off at night. For the money we considered it a bit poor. Would not stay here again.

The motel was plagued with ants. It was like a 1960s place. No toiletries that one normally has. No table or chairs, just a counter bench with tiny stools. Old furniture, sheets not matching, old carpet and tired décor. No free wi fi, you had to buy cards at $5 per hour. Worst motel we have ever stayed in, for... More

We stayed over the holidays. As others have said, the motel is in a good position in a quiet street but near town. The units are basic but clean. The main problem however is the plumbing, the shower and washbasin look like relics from the 1970s, simply not good enough nowadays. We did see some of the ants others mention,... More

Very happy with our stay so far (still here as I write this). As some have said its not modern looking but it's tidy and our unit is in very good condition. It has new carpet and a comfortable bed. The kids beds are memory foam and very comfy. The pools has been great fun and the manager is very... More

This motel is in need of repairs has a real 1970s look, it was very tired and the bed was saggy, it was clean but had ants in the kitchen and no where to put your suitcases. It also had paper thin walls and next door were night owls so we slept badly.no extras like shampoo etc. We only had... More

We stayed here for two nights. The complex is in urgent need of refurbishment, appeared untouched since the 1970's. Ants were crawling around the edge of the living room walls, as well as carpet and furnishings. If any food was left out ants immediately were crawling over it. On check in, I requested a complimentary newspaper, this was never delivered,... More

I stayed here as I know nelson well and all the other main hotels are on the busy main rd but as they say 'near the beach'. Dudley the owner was kind and helpful and runs an affordable clean motel. During my swim in the pool I could have been in Samoa. The unit wasa a good size and at... More

A generally nice site with a small pool in the centre. The rooms are equipped with everything that is necessary, but also everything (with exception of the modern and large TV) was more or less old and need to be replace. The bed was'nt comfortable and has a hollow in the middle so that there was no good sleep possible.... More

The complex is reasonably large, so my review relates only to a small block of what is offered. The single story units are made of concrete block with no attempt to hide this internally. Decor therefore was painted concrete block both internally and externally. Not particularly attractive. Worse still, however, is that such units are notoriously difficult to heat and... More
