first off -- the capital view motor inn is not a five star hotel. it is, however, comfortable, convenient, and affordable.
we stayed here for 2 nights. it was starting to get difficult to find affordable places to stay with the upcoming hobbit movie premiere, and we were lucky to find this motel. check-in went well and mark is very friendly and informative. the motel has free parking which was much appreciated - definitely get one of the spots behind the building as opposed to in front. the room was spacious -- we had asked for a queen sized bed in the room but the room actually had a queen bed and a twin bed also. there was a kitchenette that was extremely helpful, especially due to the electric burners. we saved some money by getting groceries from a nearby store and cooking dinner one night.
the motel is super close to cuba street but overall it was quiet. cuba street is a great destination for restaurants (both cheap and more spendy), bars, clothing stores. it was not too far to walk to the i-site in the civic centre or the te papa museum. i would recommend a walk along oriental parade -quite lovely.
wifi was free for the first 50 mb but the connection was not so great. walls were thin also -- we never heard our neighbors (only 4 units per floor) but when we went out into the hall to try to get better wifi signal, we could easily hear our television. i don't think this should be a problem as again, once inside your room, it is quiet and peaceful.
