“Good service and value”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I booked a room for 5 and the price is very reasonable. Based on the design, I would say the motel has not been renovated for quite some time. Looking at it at another angel, the motel gives off a vintage atmosphere which I pretty much enjoyed. The facilities are still well managed and usable. The room is spacious as well.

Thank you for what is a thoughtful and astute review. There is a way to go before we have finished the upgrade, but in the meanwhile we try to give value for money.

This is advertised as a budget motel and that is what it is. It was great value for the $70 for the night. Very clean with crisp linen and comfortable bed. A small, basic bathroom with a good shower. Very nice new flat screen TV that could be angled so it could be seen form any part of the room. The best thing was the "Black Book" about Rotorua. It had places you could go to that were free for those on a limited budget but also plugged the local tourist activities. Tim was very friendly and nothing was any trouble. Also had free wifi. I'll stay there again.

This is an older motel but suited us just fine for the night. It's across the road from the golf course and across a field from the Pohutu geyser which host Tim informed us would go off every 15 minutes approx. Comfortable bed, free wi-fi and kitchen for our breakfast Tim helped us book the Tamaki Maori evening event which we thoroughly enjoyed, especially our zany busdriver.

Room Tip: It was quiet during our stay in March - in busier times, you might want a room away from the road.

First thing: this is a very basic, budget accommodation. For what you pay you get a good sized room, basic but clean bathroom, minifridge, flat screen TV and an OK bed. Plenty of parking too. Location is not downtown, but not too out of the way either. Owner is quite friendly. If a high-end place is what you're looking for, should probably search elsewhere. But if you want a basic place on a relatively cheap budget, this is a great option.

We did read the reviews for this Lodge before we booked it but it really was a lot noisier than we expected. A clue as to the fact that there is a noise problem... earplugs are provided. The room itself was fine. Spacious bright and clean. IT was fine for limited self catering. It advertised free wi fi but it did not work in the rooms at all. Maybe if one were near the office it might have worked but not in the room. The owners were fine, quite helpful advising what to see. So if noise does not bother you this would be good place to stay but be warned it is very noisy with large trucks arriving and leaving all night right next door at a large service station.

We appreciate your feedback and frankness. We ourselves have been disturbed when staying in motels/hotels by other guests and traffic and would have 'killed' for a pair of earplugs at those times. It was those experiences which prompted us to provide them for all guests here. We are sorry if your stay was marred by noise. We are pleased to report we have invested in a very efficient new wi-fi system for the motel, and everybody is happy with that service now.

we only stayed one night, the room is spacious and clean with a small kitchen. decent bathroom. no internet and a bit noisy for the gas station next door, in general needs a renovation but for a short stay it's ok.

We stayed at Rotorua Motor lodge for 8 days just recently and it was absolutely worth what we paid for. There was 6 adults so we had 2 studio rooms which were cleaned everyday. Fresh towels everyday and the owners were friendly as and very lovely people. I will def recommend this accommodation to others out there. If we ever need accommodation we will look them up for sure

Room Tip: Just let reception know what you need and they will help you the best they can.
