We booked this accomodation on Wotif and looked at reviews on Tripadvisor and Wotif. Realised it was economical but reviews appeared to be ok. We paid then given key to room. It was dreadful and asked for refund which was declined, Found alternative accomodation. I would recommend you look before you pay.

Somewhat tired, but reasonable value for money. Needed a good spring-clean and repaint. Good to have a decent couch to sit in. Our unit had lots of room - I suspect those with more beds were tighter. Didn't see a lot of the hosts, which was fine - they left us to it. Reception had lots of travel idea brochures....

Very affordable and came with everything we needed. Staff were very nice but also gave us the privacy we needed. Not too far from supermarket, The Warehouse, McDonald's and the mall. Walls were quite thin so had to be extra quiet and rooms weren't anything fancy but overall GREAT accommodation at an affordable price.

Booked for 3 nights. Saw the room and started hunting for another motel . Grease up the walls described as having a cooker in the kitchen which was 2 elements which needed cleaned. The whole unit was filthy. I would never stay there. We got another motel. To be fair we were refunded 2 nights without question.

Stayed at Kerry's Motel while during the Bike Rotorua this weekend. Comfortable and clean. The linen and the beds were excellent. Everything we needed for a reasonable price. Friendly owners. Would stay again.

My partner and I stayed at this motel for two nights while visiting Rotorua. It was well located, only 10 minutes to the Rotorua attractions, and very comfortable. The breakfast provided for an extra 10 dollars was excellent, just right to start the day. The motel staff were very helpful and friendly. The motel was comfortable and provided enough privacy...

Very kind and accommodating owners, as we were unable to make the latest check-in time, the owner stayed up for us to arrive. The breakfast was yummy and a short walk into Rotorua town and less than 10 minutes drive to many of Rotorua's key attractions such as Te Puia.

70 NZ$ for a motel room with all facilities in central Rotorua is a great deal - that's backpacker prices. Nice staff and room.
