Stay at Room 25 for 2 nights in Feb and found it was quite noise because just right next to SH5, and the bathroom is not up to standard, the shower head splash water everywhere, but that is not the big deal. The problem we had started receive an email from the booking website asking for feedback and reviews and we provided our feedback, but the response from the motel operator is in a wrong attitude. See below with their response:
"A motor lodge not adjacent to a road would be a strange location don't you think?
The motel provides, for free, excellent ear plugs to alleviate any noise issues from within or without the rooms. The louvre windows allow very good air circulation, and guests who insist on showering with them closed can expect some dampness. There is no mould around the window, the guest is mistaken in this respect also. A shower which does not work should not produce any water methinks, and the purpose of a shower head is to spray water so all the body gets wet. We are an old building and there are improvements to be made when economics allow, but in the meantime new beds, TV, drapes, and very competitive prices more than compensate. This guest was lucky to get a room in a very busy week in Rotorua, and she judges us against superior places she may have enjoyed at much higher prices. Comparing apples with oranges is not just."
I had wrote a few reviews about this motel, but commerical booking website are normally protect their clients (the hotel/motel), so normally only good feedbacks will get displayed, so beware and hope this website won't do the same!
