I've stayed a number of times at Midtown Motor Inn. Always very friendly & accommodating. The motel rooms are clean and comfortable. The motor inn is close to the CBD, about 10 minutes brisk walk to the centre, there are two large supermarkets about 5 mins walk away, 24 hr McDs (McCafe too) and Burger K across the road, heaps...

Flat screen TV with analogue and digital channels, some of them showing programmes other than rugby. Unit very clean, serviced thoroughly daily. Fresh towels and bedding every day. Steaming water 24/7. Kitchen and utensils up to date, produced... More

This motel has serious issues . Old plastic electric jug that smelt terrible in use and tainted the water. Only had one severely cracked handbasin in the kitchen for toilet hygiene, teeth cleaning,shaving,drinking water,dishwashing. DISGUSTING. Heavy thick black mould on kitchen ceiling, door frame, in toilet cistern gave us both respiratory issues. Electric blanket had a broken switch which made... More

Recently stayed at the Midtown Motor Inn and while the reception when you arrive was lovely, the actual hotel room was majorly lacking. I suppose for $89 nzd you're not reallly going to get much, but it was not really clean. The bathroom and bedroom counter had ants walking all over, the basin in the bathroom was dirty and there...

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We chose the room with the small kitchenette. It was wonderful, quiet and relaxing. All though there were a lot of people staying,as it was Easter, everyone was quiet. The rooms were nice and clean; they even serviced it on the second day, we got nice and clean dry towels, and it...

I stay in many motels with by business travel, and family leisure holidays. This one I have always found to be clean, tidy and the staff (including management) are very hospitable... I always feel welcome. It is a good size complex but has a relaxing atmosphere, and has an abundance of off street parking. Very central to all amenities in... More

All in all, a good budget option if you can overlook the dated rooms & facilities. Tidy, cheap & convenient to Wanganui CBD. Clare, the lady who dealt with my booking was cheerful & very helpful. Wi-Fi works good & I got a good sleep. Would stay again.

Booked here through Booking.com. Info there said it had a Restaurant on site which attracted me. Upon checking in found out Restaurant is no longer in operation. Room we had was very dated but I must say was clean, bed we used was very comfortable. Bathroom, plumbing etc was very old but clean and worked very well. Room was larger... More
