Motel is a little dated, but the unit we stayed in was clean and comfortable. July is mid winter, so it was a little chilly to start with, but once the heaters were turned on things quickly warmed up. The extension leads though that were provided could not handle a heater plus another appliance at the same time-they would always trip. This was a small issue as there were very few power points in the room, which meant you couldn’t watch TV and have the heater on at the same time. This of course would not be an issue in the summer. Owner was very friendly and helpful and rooms clean. Good proximity to beach, and 5 minutes drive to Mount Manganui. Uber in town as well, so no issue getting around if you want to have a drink in town with your meal and don’t want to drive. Uber cost was $13 each way(or you could walk in which would take you 40 minutes).

Quick stop-over in town so we stayed for just one night. The room we had was clean, comfortable and well catered for. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Full kitchen facilities, separate bedroom and bathroom. Parking right outside our villa. Good WiFi. Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. The motel is in a good, quiet location, close to the Mount and waterfront, a stone's throw away from beach access. We had a late meal nearby at The Rising Tide, a 5min drive and very good. Highly recommend this motel to all, the facilities can cater for anyone from families with children to single travelers.

We stayed in the Loft for two night over the Easter weekend. A well designed space with everything your could need. Ensuite, kitchenette (not that we were there to cook :) ) and a generous space. I can't fault this place. Spotlessly clean, peaceful and quiet! Easy walk to the Mount's beachfront, cafes and bars. Friendly and welcoming hosts! Blue Wave Motel will definately be our first choice o stay the next time we visit the Mount.

We stayed just one night at Blue Wave Motel as we had a tight schedule Touring by car both north and south islands. We rented a one roomed ground floor villa which was very spacious in a quiet central area of Mt Maunganui and a couple of minutes away from a patrolled surf beach. Our villa had full kitchen facilities all you needed to make meals of your desire. Plus a private Bathroom, flat screen TV and seating area plus dining table and chairs and Free WiFi, Plus free parking in front of our villa and close to the shopping centre. plus the manager and the staff are really nice people, We can highly recommend to you the Blue Wave Motel and would definitely stay here again.
