The motel is directly across the road from the hospital, making it the perfect choice for those attending courses or visiting patients. The downside is that it is situated on a main road and so noise can be an issue for the road-side units (especially unit 20). If you are staying more for touring & holiday purposes, the location is... More

Location: convenient for me, as I work right across the road at the hospital and had to stay a night while work was being done at my house. Hastings being Hastings there's not much choice for good food nearby but you do have Hell's pizza, Burger King, KFC and a couple of gas stations within a short walk. Check in:... More

We stayed at this location for a friends wedding over Labour Weekend 2015. We didn't know the Hawke's Bay area very well so were happy to find out how central but quiet this accommodation was. With lots of eateries and supermarkets only a 10 minute walk away. The kitchen was fully equipped and modern and the spa bath was lovely.... More

This is a newish motel with great attention to detail and as far as I noticed has everything you might want. We stayed in an executive room that had a bit of extra space, including a very nice leather couch, table with two chairs, desk and chair etc. Decent sized wardrobe. Large TV with lots of channels, DVD player etc... More

We had a 3 night stay for my mum's 70th birthday. Our room was beautiful and the decor outstanding, I liked that the curtains blocked out the motel and streets lights at night, we especially loved the spa bath. Towels were changed daily and we were asked if we wanted clean linen. Our room was at the back so was... More

We spent 2 nights at the Omahu Motor Lodge and it was great. The beds were really comfortable the mattresses were soft/medium. Feather pillows. The room was spacious and very clean with kitchen facilities; microwave; hotplates. Mmmm plunger coffee if you wanted to make yourself one. We were at the rear of the complex and so there was no issue... More

Two things we look for in a motel (and, sadly, don't always find) - a high standard of cleanliness and good lighting. Omahu Motor Lodge ticked both those boxes. Just one night to attend a wedding west of Hastings, a choice made largely from TripAdvisor reviews and we're happy. Just a short walk to a dairy cum bakery plus a... More

Very nice Motel. The rooms are nice, spacious and clean. They are equipped with a small kitchen like most Motels and our room had a spa bath. Location is close to many restaurants and shopping places. We'd stay there again if in that area.
