“A relaxing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed three nights in July. Our online questions prior to booking were answered promptly, and in a friendly fashion. Once we got to Tauranga, Macy's was easy to find. We were delighted when we were shown into the room- it looked so clean and fresh, with plenty of space. You can watch TV from the spa bath. The room was quiet, and we slept well. The owners and staff all helpful. We would book in here again, if we come to visit Tauranga again.

Hi there,
Thanks for your positive review. Thank you that you found the motel clean, fresh and friendly and that the room was spacious. The king and queen studio units with the in-room spa baths are definitely our most popular units whether it's our corporate single travellers or couples just looking for that relaxing time-out. Glad you enjoyed that. We look forward to the privilege of hosting you again when you next visit Tauranga, regards, Athol & Lorraine

Athol and Lorraine run a tight ship and it shows in the details. Very clean and comfortable accommodation, good size units. Quiet, despite being on a relatively busy road.

We used the conference facilities, warm, good size and excellent on site catering.

Friendly owners, ready to help with any enquiry. Felt safe as well, as I doubt trouble makers are welcome.

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle are the quietest

Hi JaguarV8, Thanks for your positive comments and that you found the rooms clean, comfortable and a good size. Glad you enjoyed the catering that was provided to the conference centre delegates - it is a popular facility for many companies for meetings and product presentations and the like. We have tried to maintain the prices at a competitive and well priced for the level of accommodation we provide. There is a new restaurant which has opened up, Landing 2, which is just a 30 second walk from the motel that has proved popular with all our guests with a great menu, serving beer and wine. We do hope to host you again when you return to Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty, kind regards, Athol & Lorraine

Myself and husband stayed here for 1 night. Clean and comfortable spa room however, the room seemed a little tired and in need of upgrading. Spa bath had a few small chips/damage however it did work and we enjoyed the soak. The bed was old and quite uncomfortable so didn't sleep too well.
The noise from the traffic was terrible and continued throughout the night. It was particularly bad at 5am onwards.
Very pleasant and friendly owners.

Room Tip: Avoid room 18!

Hi Susan, Thanks for your review & that you found the room clean. We are constantly upgrading the rooms on a rotation basis & Rm18 ceiling was re-painted & new casual furniture fitted. The wooden tawa desk, headboard & side-tables add a quality touch to the room. We take your comments on the bed positively & will seek feedback from other guests this month. Some people prefer stiffer mattresses and some prefer softer but we do take your comment seriously, we may consider replacing. The four motel rooms that are alongside 11th Ave have double glazing in the windows to act as a soundproofing. As far as traffic goes we usually have quiet nights and very seldom do we have comments on traffic disturbing sleep but our apologies for that. We ask if you are a light sleeper when you return we will put you away from the road, we have regulars who ask us to do just that. Thank you that you at least found us friendly, we do hope to host you again.

We spent 3 nights over Queen's Birthday, to attend the Adult Nationals for TenPin Bowling. (We had stayed previousy for the same time and reason). It was easy to book, easy to find and easy to access. We arrived on the Friday and saw a Poster for Katipo Adventures (Spyder MotorCycles - 3 wheelers) and I checked in while my partner got all the details (thought I had lost him lol). The Motor Inn is a great place to stay, friendly, always clean (thanks to all the Staff) and the ability to watch the Crusaders from the warm bubbles of the Spa bath . . .Priceless!! We were able to walk into town and enjoy the Restraurants and peacefulness of the Bay. We have told everyone we know about Macy's :0)

Room Tip: All the rooms are warm, quiet and welcoming :0)

Hi Jacqui,
Thanks for your positive comments about your stay (once again) at the motel. It is rewarding for us as owners and also very motivating for the staff when we get such positive reviews from guests. It is glad to know that our team approach is recognized by guests and that our staff have begun to understand that it's up to us all to do our bit to ensure your stay is the best it can be, so we commit to being friendly, clean, organized, comfortable and make sure you know that without you we don't have a business. Hope to see you next Queens birthday or next breakaway weekend you come to the Bay of Plenty. kind regards Athol & Lorraine. PS I will pass on your compliments on the room to our housekeeping staff.

Plus the advice on dining in town was spot on! (They charged back too - bonus :)
Handy Location.

Room Tip: Ask for the room type that has a spa bath in the Bedroom !!! (You can see the telly from it!)

Hi Baz, thanks for your positive comments on your friendly welcome to Macy's Motor Inn. Yes, the most popular rooms are definitely the 9 studio units which have in-room double spa baths. We have also a selection of really great restaurants that will suit all tastes that are just less than five minutes by car which are on the waterfront location of Strand Street. There is a new restaurant opening up just 30 seconds walk from the motel to be called Landing 2 and across the road there is a great motorsport bar called Drivers Bar which does a great steak or burger. In addition, there are three restaurants, a Thai, Indian and Italian on 4th Ave and Cameron just 6 blocks down the road. We look forward to hosting you when you are next in Tauranga, kind regards, Athol & Lorraine

We spent 4 nights at this Motel and would thoroughly recommend it. The room we had hired was the smallest one but there was plenty of room for 2 people. There was a large shower room with a good strong shower and the kitchen area was fine. There was a microwave with a reheat option and all the cutlery needed. The fridge was not full sized and had no cool box but perfectly adequate for storing wine, milk, butter. Free tea/coffee/washing up liquid were provided and TV had sky channels. Bed was very comfy. The room had no table and only one armchair but again we had the smallest room at a very reasonable rate. There were larger rooms which seemed to be better equipped. There was a small outdoor swimming pool which was closed (it's winter). While the place didn't have a restaurant there was food available to order in house and from local restaurants. There was a supermarket 5 mins walk away to cater for all needs. Biggest plus - the treatment we received from the staff - nothing was too much trouble and a lot of useful advice was given. The place was immaculately clean and furniture was modern. Only minus was that there were no restaurants within easy walking distance except for McDonalds. This was our only our second place we stayed in in NZ and we were really sorry to leave. Tauranga is an amazing place too. I'd just like to say thank you to the owner for all his help.

Hi There, Thanks so much for your positive comments on your stay with us in our only "Compact Mini Studio". Glad you found it adequate even though it is the only room with a double bed and our smallest unit. All the other rooms have king and queen beds and are much more spacious. Glad you found the room "immaculately clean" - will pass on your feedback to our staff who are a team of dedicated housekeepers who take pride in their work. Happy you fell in love with Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty and that you thought 4 days was not enough to see and enjoy everything. Maybe this means we will get to see you back in the Bay of Plenty someday ? we would love to host you for your next visit to NZ. It was great hosting you Have a great 2 weeks in NZ.
Kind regards, Athol & Lorraine.

Room was very clean and had all the necessities plus a great spa bath with a view of the tv. Was especially pleased with the friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure we were satisfied customers. Would happily book again.

We are pleased you had a great stay with us. The nine studio units all have the same double spa bath that you enjoyed - these studio rooms are most popular with our guests. Will pass your comments on the clean room through to our housekeeping staff who are passionate about their jobs, it is a huge encouragement to them when their efforts are recognised by guests. We do look forward to hosting you on your next visit to the Bay of Plenty. kind regards Athol & Lorraine
