Quiet and spacious and conveniently located. Clean and comfortable with good parking and well-equipped units. Friendly owner who gave us a good price for 2 units and provided late checkout for us too as we had a funeral to attend later in the day.

The room was well equipped and lovely toiletries and nice fluffy towels, even a heated towel rail. The cancellation policy was fair unlike another property across the road. The parking was easy and close to town. Nice outdoor... More

We stayed in a split level unit with the bedroom on the upper level, which had a balcony. There was also a small enclosed seating area on the ground floor at the rear. The location is a good 20 minute walk into the city centre, but there are a couple of watering holes on the way. Facilities in the motel... More

We stayed here for a night recently. We were impressed with the high standard of the room for the cost and felt it was good value for money. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and felt comfortable staying here. Nice and close to the centre approx. 5 min. drive.

Arriving towards Hastings we were informed that the Art Deco Festival was on and that accommodation would be difficult. The Site office helped us find Valdez Motor Lodge which was the perfect base for our time here. Warwick and Judy were wonderful hosts and made sure our stay was enjoyable. The rooms are clean and spacious with well equipped kitchenette... More

I rencetly arrived back again at a rather late Saturday afternoon. Judy was there to help and organise my requirements including restuarants, internet connection, marked on the map. When I arrived the shop on foot, the door had already a "closed" sign on. When I turned back empty handed, suddenly I felt very hungry. But lo behold! I saw Judy... More

As a business traveller I get to stay in many hotels and motels and, in my opinion, the Valdez is up there with the best. The staff are always obliging and helpful, the rooms are clean and very spacious and the location is perfect. For anyone travelling to Hastings I would recommend staying at the Valdez!!!!!
