“Beautiful Motel. Would not change a single thing if I had to do it again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2011

I am not exaggerating when I say Macy's Motor Inn is a wonderful motel full of class. The owners are delightful and were overly polite and helpful. We never felt that we were a bother and they were always there whenever we needed anything, be that spare keys for our rooms, some pots for cooking, or access to a larger dining room for our group of 12 friends to eat for dinner.

The motel is located about a 2 minute drive out from the city, but even without a car it makes for a wonderful location to stay at. We used buses for our main mode of transport to the mount and beaches and it would be a 20 minute ride on the number 1 outside of Shell, which is less than a 2 minute walk from Macy's. Across the road from Macy's is a McDonalds and another 20m down the road is a group of shops for food (subway, burgerfuel, etc)

The Pak N' Save is a 10 minuet walking distance and everything else is easily accessible.

Take my word for it, Macy's should not be overlooked.

Hi there, Thanks for your review of Macy's from your stay in Tauranga in Jan 2011. It was only with positive reports and reviews from guests like yourself who stayed with us that we enjoyed being on the top two or three motels in the Bay of Plenty. I am catching up on two years of backlog to say thanks you and if ever you and your friends wish to return we would love to host you. We have just had a wonderful summer with warm temps and no rain and that has given us an extra long season. kind regards
Athol & Lorraine

First off, the owners Athol & Lorraine are the friendliest owners I've come into contact with at any Inn. The self contained rooms were perfect for our stay, as was the usage of the two poolside BBQs. Nearby (a minutes walk) is a bus stop with buses going to the city centre (which is also just a 15 minute walk away) and to main beach over at The Mount. Spaces for parking outside the rooms and a petrol station next to the bus stop prove useful for a vehicle traveler.

Hi Temulence, Finally trying to catch up on overdue guest reviews, your was done in January 2011. It was the positive responses from our early guests like you when we originally listed us on Trip Advisor that got us to the No 1 position out of 54 motels for about the first 14 or 15 months. Thanks for that, we have kept up the three important things for us and the first was one that you appreciated, the friendliness and hospitality , and secondly we have maintained our prices at what we think are a good competitive value and thirdly great clean self contained accommodation. We do hope we get a chance to host you again when you come back to the Bay of Plenty and stay in Tauranga. To add to location there is a new restaurant opening up just 30 seconds walk away from the motel which I am sure everyone is going to enjoy, Thanks again for your positive comments on your stay with us, kind regards, Athol & Lorraine

Hosts were very welcoming and helpful, rooms clean, fresh and very comfortable. Location was great, nice and quiet and close to town. Pool was very refreshing, and had a yummy breaskfast in the morning! Would definately stay again. Thanks for a lovely night.

Hi Anna,
Many thanks for your comments regarding the rooms being clean, fresh and comfortable. Yes - I know it's nearly 2,5 years since you were at the motel but I am determined to go and thank all our loyal guests who gave us such lovely reviews and that I never had the chance to get back to and thank for getting us to the top of the list on Trip Advisor. We won a Certificate of Excellence Award from Trip Advisor in 2012. Our staff have a postive and passionate committment to keeps the rooms as clean as and as neat as. We do hope we get a chance to host you again at some stage when you call into Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty, kind regards Athol & Lorraine

I travelled to Tauranga with my elderly father and needed a motel that would provide two separate rooms for sleeping. We chose Macy's and were not disappointed. It is centrally located, but quiet. The unit was spacious, clean and well-equipped. The roomy bathroom even had a bath. I will stay here on future trips to Tauranga.

I travel regularly for work and stay at Macy's everytime! As a regular traveller you become very particular about certain things. I love the fact they remember what room I like, they have feather duvet's, their breakfast menu is fantastic and being able to relax after a long day in the spa bath watching TV is perfect!

Hi Aims 80,
Finally a response to your long ago posted review. Thanks for your positive comments about the cleanliness, and the little extra's (filter coffee)(free wi-fi)(free newspaper)(safe off street parking - free). Yes, the feather duvets are popular and the new linen, duvet covers have been a hit with a lot of the older clients. The rooms were upgraded with 32"LCD TV's and now have 23 channels of Freeview TV and 9 channels of SKY. We look forward to hosting you again this coming year.
regards,
Athol & Lorraine

The room was always clean and milk was is the refrigerator every morning. The location was close to many stores in Tauranga and was across the street from the home where my mother stays. The managers were always friendly and most helpful.
