Reason for choosing this motel is because the price was advertised on road sign. It was within our budget. Very basic but clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. We do our own breakfast and it had a toaster, kettle dishes and utensils. Had a spa bath but it looked very old so didn't use it. It is located on... More

We went here on a trip with family. Everything was clean and functional. We booked the standard apartment (3 single beds and 1 double bed) for 2 nights. WiFi was fast and free. The owners lent us socket adapters for free, too. Basic amenities provided. Not bad for a short stay.

Stayed overnight in Rotorua before heading back to Auckland. Motel is on a busy main road so might be a bit noisy for some people but we managed ok. Rooms are basic but clean with a bathroom/spa bath, kitchenette with toaster, kettle and microwave and comfy bed. It wasn't posh by any stretch but was perfectly ok for one night.

Bit very clean and tidy. Comfortable. Has the basics you'd need and also a spa bath and off street parking. Pleasant welcome. Average pricing. Busy time of year and got the last room here. No complaints.

Avoid this motel if you are a couple. We were provided room4 at $110 per night for two nights (early Jan). The room is budget and we expected that. The linen was clean. However the bed was quite small (double). This would have been borderline acceptable if the mattress was decent. However it had appallingly bad roll-together. I expressed my... More

My family and I were getting off farm to relax during the busy calving season. We thought (thought is bold and underlined three times) that this would be a good place to just relax. Not even close. First, we made an online booking, arrived and then were told at reception they didn't have a record of our booking because their... More

If you ever visit Rotorua do not stay at Ace Motor Lodge. Booked a room online that specifically said it had a stovetop. Arrived to find no stovetop! The lady clearly knew what we were talking about and was using the language barrier as an excuse to rip us off. She told us if we want a room with a... More

After looking around in the main road and finding motels upwards of $130, we found the Ace Motorlodge which was only $80 and included free wifi! Easy check in/out, and located near the Ploynesian Spa and the town Center. Only our second day on our vacation, his place was a good find. Very quiet room.

We usually choose to stay here when we go to Rotorua and have stayed here about 4 times before. It's run by a friendly Korean couple, the family room/apartment is like a cosy little home away from home. Sure, it's simple faded early 90s decor, but it's comfy and clean and really quite affordable, I probably wish I can keep... More

We booked online for 3 nights, paying upfront. We were given room number 10 which has a large skylight over the bed. It was a bit cold due to the draft from the skylight and the heater didnt work, but we didnt mind. The first morning we both woke up with a couple of bites on our stomachs, arms, hands... More
