As the name suggests, it is a motor lodge and the way the studio rooms are appointed give you a feeling of temporary stay which is workable for singles. The amenities include partially loaded pantry with utensils and appliances. Located on the main road, has good parking space and has Countdown and Pick n Save supermarkets in the vicinity Suitable...

Bed was comfortable, good little kitchen, room was warm. Couple of things needed attention the microwave didn't seem to work. Good to have a laundry to be able to use. Wifi worked well and was free. Not plush but more than adequate.

The facilities here are a bit dated. However, they were well maintained and the room was very well cleaned and I felt very comfortable staying there with my family. Easy access from my car, though there were steps that would be difficult to manage if you had mobility issues, it wasn't like normal steps. It was like the patio outside... More

My family of eight stayed overnight on thursday night requiring 2 x 2 bedroom rooms. On arrival staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Although I didn't realise we had two stories the rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Bathroom was tired looking but clean. We had breakfasts provided in rooms which were very good value for money. The owners obliged... More

Although a little dated the property is well maintained and spotlessly clean the rooms are a good size. Great to have cooking facilities with 2 big supermarkets just a few minutes walk away. There is also a good assortment of fast food outlets near by. Great location in Manukau. Handy to the airport , shopping, motorway.

Very clean, comfortable room. Close to Westfield and Rainbows End, plenty of eating outlets and supermarkets also in walking distance. On the flight path for the airport so did notice the odd jet roaring overhead during the night, but that's a minor issue and shouldn't put anyone off staying here, overall we were very happy and would definitely stay here...

The motel is well located and central to the business area in Manukau. The motel is reasonably presented and tidy. However, the parking bays are very narrow and you could barely get out once parked especially if there is someone who didn't park well within their space. Turning is also tight. The motel is right under the flight path and... More

We regretfully booked a night at the Manukau Motor Lodge for one night during a stressful trip when my dad had died. All I wanted was a decent place to have a rest, but that wasn't to be. We checked in at 1:30, as soon as we walked in I commented on the gross smell. The longer we were in... More

Really expected better quality for what we paid. There was no couch to even sit on, only a single chair & 2 table chairs. The Bedspread was very rubbed & bally. A bit disappointing since it cost us $180 for the night. At least it was quite clean.
