Baywatch Motor Inn is a great place to stay. The rooms were more than spacious enough for the both of us and a super comfy bed! The hosts really make the place that much better - lovely and friendly , turning our heatpump on before we arrived to make sure the room was warm for us.
The complimentary biscuits with the tea/hot choc was a nice touch! Would definitely stay here again.

This place is comfortable,clean and well appointed.T.V in the bedroom,spa bath,free wifi,a good variety of Sky channels.But all this wouldnt matter if we were not treated with respect and courtesy from the hosts.This is where Baywatch really excels itself, the simple but often overlooked key area,customer service.We would definitely stay here again.

Well priced and very centrally located in Mount Maunganui, this Motel is fantastic for business travellers and families alike. Friendly owners and well appointed, there are options for everyone. Decor is new and stylish, spa baths available and a pool for that summer dip.

People there were absolutely the best service. IIf you want information they really go out of their way to find an answer. The room was a good size, and even though we had a road side room, we were never disturbed by the traffic noise. Free wi-fi. Though close to perfect the only things I found were that when I went to use a utensil, it was greasy ... This was probably previous tenants not washing up properly. My pillow was a little too high for me, and again not the Baywatch's fault, but my quirk. It is one of the best places I have stayed at .. close to shops, bus stop outside (if you want to catch bus to Bayfair) and close enough to beaches. Our heat pump was always turned on for us before we got back to the room to make sure it was nice and warm as the weather was rather cold. I raise my glass to the people who run this place and would highly recommend. (And he has the most adorable granddaughters) Hope to see you again when we return.

Room Tip: IF you want to catch the bus to Bayfair, but stops right outside. Don't try catchin in town as...

Thank you for your great review. Yes we are so lucky to have the great location for our guests to enjoy.
We emphasise to our staff how absolutely critical it is for the rooms to be immaculately clean and pristine. A disappointment you found a utensil drawer that was somewhat greasy. Proof to us all that there is room for improvement and an area for us to work on.

Thanks again.

P.S. And yes we are so proud of our beautiful grand daughters.

Stayed here for one night and will definitely return next time we're in Mt Maunganui. It was reasonably priced, modern, spacious, clean and very well presented. Central location to the main shopping areas and beach. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff made our stay most enjoyable.
Thoroughly recommend this place.
