My family and I were driving through Taupo, and were so tired when we arrived that we just picked a place at random. The Prince Motor Lodge happened to be in the right place at the right time.
The manager escorted us to our room, and I was pleased. There was a separate bedroom for the kids, a wonderful bathroom with a tub for two, and internet was included in the price. He plugged in some heaters for us to make sure we stayed warm, and kept telling us if we needed anything to let him know.
Some of the previous reviews seem to have been unfair. The lady at the front desk was certainly no bubbly personality, but she wasn't rude. The rate was no great bargain, but it wasn't a ripoff either.
I would recommend this hotel to any families traveling through Taupo.
