I stayed here for 3 weeks. Room was spacious and had all the essentials. Neat and tidy rooms, always wwll kept in perfect condition. Very quiet and away from traffic noise, great for me being a light sleeper. Was only a short walk away from town, which was handy for me. All staff were kind and friendly. Even had free... More

Rooms were of a large size. You are given a free wifi voucher for every day you are staying. Staff are very welcome and easy to deal with upon arivial and departure. Would recommend to anyone staying in Hawkes Bay area.

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!!!!!

A group of us travel away annually & have done so for 23 years & this years trip took us to Hastings. Our accommodation was arranged by a friend so we hadn't bothered looking at previous reviews and this was a lesson learned as we will no longer make bookings without checking the place out first! On arrival, the person... More

Cheryl we are sorry your stay at the Valdez Motor Lodge was unhappy as our aim is to please our customers. We advised your group that our cleaners would be starting work at 9.30am to help with their stay. It is our policy to change all bed linen every 3 days if the customer is staying 4 or more days,...

We stayed for 2 nights in a studio unit, and like other reviewers found it to be very good - spacious, clean and quiet. The only negative for us (may not bother others) was that it was dark inside and the little private outdoor courtyard needed 'refreshing' - so it was not conducive to sitting outside.

Lovely accommodation over two floors so main bedroom was upstairs with windows on either side allowing air to flow through on a very hot day. Very pleasant service. Sorry to have only stayed for one night.
