The place is very accesible from state hiway and few blocks away from Bayfair mall. We did not expect that a motel could have been that complete. The check in was very smooth. The guy accompanied us to our room. The unit has 2 floors. Ground floor has 1 single bed, small receiving area and mini kitchen. Mini kitchen has cuttleries, kitchen utensils, pans and mini fridge. The toilet hAs bath tub and complete with toiletries. Queen size bed is uptairs. I must commend this has the most generous plug/ socket that we have ever stayed in! I think the entire unit has 5 x 2 plugs. Yehey!! Thats 10 gadgets or appliance at the same time. Lol. There is a heater panel as well but electric fan is provided too. We are delighted that we were able to use their heated pool After a tiring day from walking around. The check out was fast and easy too! Will recommend this motel to everyone who does not expect something grand and not fussy. We are happy to stay here again and again in the future

We have stayed here several times before but not for several years. Our room was definitely in need of some maintenance that should have been done sometime earlier. I was disappointed that the motel had been let go so much and would choose another motel next time in Mount Maunganui

We found motel adequate for 2 night stay. It was clean and bed was comfortable. The only negative for us that there was no air conditioning and unfortunately as it was a very hot and humid night we found the heat upstairs in bedroom almost unbearable even with fan and ceiling fan on. They just moved the warm air around and did not cool the air. This would stop us from staying again. Location was perfect, short drive to Mount Maunganui and Bayfair Mall is also very short drive away.

This is my first time in Mt. Maunganui. I recommend this motel and for sure will use it again next time to visit the area. It was clean and the staff are very helpful. The pool was clean. Had a good car park. They also clean the room and replenish the towels.

Just 3 minutes walk from the beach and 1 km from Bayfair mall. A little road noise in the morning but was quiet at night. Great room design - love the upstairs bedroom. Clean. Good kitchen facilities. Fast wifi.

First time staying at Bay Palm motel and we weren’t disappointed. The location is perfect for shopping, beach’s & cafes. The rooms are well equipped, clean & functional . The beds were very comfortable & the loft space was perfect. Staff & management were friendly & helpful Would definitely stay again!

The motel was clean and tidy. A lot of space to move around. It’s a bonus having the thermal pool available onsite. Warm welcoming vibe when you arrive. Staff were kind and give an induction upon arrival. Well Worth it!

It's in a great location close to the beach! The rooms were spotless and looked like they had just been done up! great heated pool and friendly staff! Unfortunately, the grounds aren't smoke-free and this made it very unpleasant to sit outside- also noticed the cleaning staff smoking outside the rooms.
