This was a no-frills motel in a good location. We paid $200 for a two-bedroom unit, which is probably very reasonable in that area, very handy to Auckland City. The motel is 60s decor but in amazing condition considering its age. So not an aesthetic experience, but convenient. The host was very friendly and helpful to us when we arrived.
