2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2006

The photo on the web site is probably the nicest photo of the entire complex. Rooms were average. It is rated 4 1/2 stars but we would rate it 3. Motel is located about 10 minute drive out of Napier in the middle of suburbia, can't walk into Napier as it is too far.

Owners are very friendly and easy to talk to. Room had had smokers in there as you could smell smoke as you walked in. Had a two bedroom unit. Furniture was old, dated and very worn.

Bathroom had been renovated recently.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2006

While Deco City Motor Lodge may not be an art-lover's dream, the motel is clean, spacious, well-equipped and reasonably close to "downtown" Napier. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Compared to some Best Western motels, this was a delight.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2005

This is a great place to stay.

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights in a room with a spa bath. The spa is huge as is the bathroom.

The bed was huge much bigger than my king size bed. It felt like i had the bed to myself.

The room was quite, clean and made up each day.

The hosts/owners of the deco city were very helpful and friendly.

Will stay here again.
