Not much positive to say except that at least it was a place to sleep. The sheets looked like they hadn't been washed for several weeks, with hair on the sheets and pillow. The bathroom and kitchen area was old and worn looking and did not seem very clean. Not enough cutlery for the 4 of us that the room... More

My husband and I stayed here and never again. We wrote this letter of complaint (below) to our booking company as well as the Apple Motor Inn with disgust at our experience. The owner then phoned us, abused us for our complaint insinuating we made the whole thing up and this was the first complaint he had received in his... More

On checkin we were given a key and the beds were clearly not made with hair all over them which was disgusting. We went straight and complained and the lady at reception was rude and arrogant telling us the cleaner would have cleaned the rooms. She reluctantly moved us to another room which was only marginally better - dirty bathroom,... More

This was accurately advertised as budget, but cost us more than the hotel we had previously been staying in - admittedly it was the hotel location's off-season, and a busy season for Hastings. Glad we only had booked to stay one night. A coat of bright paint might help - the whole place seemed dingy, albeit reasonably clean. We didn't... More

I guess he thought a low price would attract people. We booked a self contained unit @ $75 per night. He emailed later to offer an "upgrade" to a better room @ $100 per night. When we arrived he said sorry (why?) and that the upgraded room would not suit us as no room to cook. We pointed out that... More

Lovely friendly welcome, we stayed upstairs overlooking the pool with a balcony. Older style room but well equipped, clean and fresh. Handy to town. Great value for money, we would definitely return VS

Stayed here overnight. While an older and rather dated Motel, it is clean and comfortable. The room we had (ground floor with one bedroom) was able to accomdate upto four people, it was very compact with the double bed taking up most of the main area with a small dining table and kitchenette area. Off this main room is a... More

Even though we were here in February 2010 the experience of this DUMP has never left us. On driving into the place we were greeted by some Vanuatan guys all over the place with their laundry hanging on every possible place. The swimming pool (haha)had green stagnant water which would state that it was never serviced much like the rooms.... More

This place was a godsend for me and I can't thank the manager enough. Exhausted and cold in the middle of a 500 km bicycle ride, I was desperate for accommodation. My wife managed to track this place down by phone and the manager very kindly stayed up for me, despite me arriving at 10:30 pm. He was very friendly... More
