This was a quick stop for us so we just wanted to have a clean bed and bathroom for a reasonable price. The place is dated with a dark, old-fashioned interior but the room was a good size and parking and wifi were free. The place was very quiet so we had a good nights sleep.

For $100, you get....free laundry but you gotta pay for detergent $2. There is no bar or restaurant but there is Thai in the "city". Everything closes at 5pm in this town so be prepared. This hotel felt like there was a residue- clean but super questionable- the bed- lumpy and the pillows were thick as a sliver :( but... More

We stayed in a one bedroom with a kind size bed. I slept fine but my husband found the two-single beds joint together uncomfortable. We were woken by kids running up and down the hall outside at around 7am. The parking was not very spacious and it was a bit of a squeeze parking around the back. We had a... More

Its old, its tired, its cheap! Stayed here for a night to split our trip up, and we were not surprised by our room at all. Its a old cheap motel, you get a clean room with nothing special in it for a low rate! The place is really starting to show its age inside with the wall paper, carpet... More

Well it was a clean room, but that's about the only positive. Very tired and dated motel, a real shame as could be a beauty. The room (premium) was quite spacious but just tragic in decor. The TV very old, not a great picture and not even any Sky TV. Shower worked well. Bed uncomfortable, could feel the springs. Free... More

With rain coming, emergency stay- very basic but clean, it's a tired old girl - comfy beds, basic Tv, free wifi. There is no restaurant/bar facilities, but with hotel for sale- who knows! The staff where really busy but helpful, not giving me the wifi code I can forgive!! In summary I wouldn't stay here again, infact we were booked... More

if you have watched the rocky horror picture show, you will understand this place is a time warp. Where do the tourist coaches stay? This place would be great. It is huge, everyone can have their own room. They could do a set menu for dinner and breakfast. Yes true, I was driving past, and from the street drive by... More

Attracted at the end of a long day by the cheap room rate. Hotel looks fine from the outside. Do not be deceived! Receptionist OK when we checked in, but other reception staff are scowling and surly. Big empty corridors, reminiscent of "the Shining" horror film. Dated rooms with ancient TV sets (poor reception). Shampoo and tea bags not replenished... More

...and I think that not many people want to stay in Kaitaia for longer anyway... ;-) We came here on a Friday evening without reservation and were attracted by their street sign which announced a "Special for tonight: $89". We decided to give it a try and the check-in was fast and hassle-free. It's more of a motel-style place than... More

I can agree with some of the other reviews. The staff seemed indifferent. The interior is extremely old and dated. The shower grout and curtain were covered in mold, as were other parts of the bathroom. The shower head is at a height for people only 4 ft tall or less. The hot water worked great and the pressure was... More
