I stayed in a 2 bedroom room with my 2 friends who are a couple. The motel is older in style but super clean, everywhere. We were so impressed by the cleanliness and liked the layout of the lounge, kitchen and bathroom. They have all of the Sky channels, free wifi and are just under 1km from town. McDonald's is...

Everything was so spotless, shower and bench tops so shiny. 50 channels on SKY. Well equipped kitchen. Quiet. Hosts very welcoming. Close to shops and grocery stores. Would stay again and recommend to others.

Stayed for one night @ motel six. Room 1a. First impressions, seriously clean, shower base shiny and kitchen benches. Toilet and carpets not stained. Two bedroom but with two double beds and two singles. All channels on sky and free wifi. Great friendly hosts. Will def go there again when visiting Whangarei. Close to waterfalls, restaurants and markets.

Walking distance to everything,town,food nightlife and RSA. Our rooms for 3 nights were kept spotless, service without hesitation. Would recommend to family and friends. The only negative is the road noise, by nighttime it was lovely and peaceful

This hotel has become my home in Whangarei. Besides being sparkling clean and tidy the hotel is close to two supermarkets, two restaurants as well as the town centre and the town basin (which is stunning). But what keeps me coming back are the couple who run it. They are wonderful.

This is an older place right on the roadway. With only a last minute booking from out I-phone, it all went rather smoothly. We did get a room in the back so no noise from the road. The price was great, but for the property is was accurate pricing. It is very close to a large assortment of places to...

Myself and two colleagues stayed here for a work trip at the beginning of December. It was spotlessly clean and a convenient location, the hosts were friendly and welcoming. The price was great, I would not hesitate to stay here again if we were to travel to Whangarei for business.

We were passing through Whangarei and needed to nightstop but we had no booking. The Motel Six gave us the last room and what a surprise. Although the motel is old style it was spotless, comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. I tried to use it again the following week but it was booked out, I now know...

We chose this motel because of the price. We knew we would be arriving late and leaving early. It was an older style motel, spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. We had a room around the back and heard no road noise at all. Location is great. It was only a short walk into town. Nearby were some fast food restaurants....

Stayed for a night and ended up getting 20 bed bug bites. My kids all got bites too and when I informed the manager he had looked at us as if we bought the bugs with us! The rooms were tidy. Beds were very, very soft.
