As we checked in, we were given a fresh carton of milk and were shown the way to our rooms. All the rooms are at ground level with plenty of parking outside. Our room was clean and tidy and very big with a private patio. The room cleaning service was excellent and we will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful little place to get away for the weekend. Very clean and tidy. Nice pool and spa baths in rooms. Private court yards. Central to everything in Hastings. Lovely owners and friendly staff. Would come back again.

The room was tidy but had a stale smell. The taps and sinkin the bathroom was tired looking. Toilet looked tidy. I thought it was expensive for a motel. When we were checking the lady at reception was very rude to a pizza delivery man that had got the wrong address.

Our unit was clean and tidy which is the main thing. Friendly staff, maybe a bit pricey but I guess that's what you get for staying in one of Hastings better motels. Handy location near splash planet too.

We stayed in room 5. My first impression was that it was dark but we ended up loving the place. We had a spa in the room and we could watch the TV from there. The bed was comfy too. Warwick was really nice - he remembered I had asked for a newspaper and bought it out for me. There... More

This place is excellent. From the time I asked if they had rooms to the time we left. The rooms are excellent, very, very spacious, comfy beds, outdoor pool, laundry facilities and our host, wonderful man. Very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be returning to Valdez Motor Lodge.

The Valdez motel is the best place to stay in Hastings, roomy, quiet, good location, nice pool in Summer, I have been a regular since 1997 staying 8-10 nights per year and it is always clean, tidy and very good value for money.

A bright and airy motel with friendly owners. We stayed one night on Queens Birthday weekend and Judy was happy to help us choose a restaurant and made the booking for us. In addition, she gave us a map of directions of how to get there. (The restaurant was very nice.)
