I stayed here for one night after a business day in Tauranga - based mostly on the high ratings in TripAdvisor. I stayed in a ground floor studio unit. As a regular Tauranga visitor - business and holiday - my overall impression is that there are quite a few higher standard motels in Tauranga so the #1 rating is a bit of a mystery.
Good flat screen TV and free wireless internet access - always a good idea. Breakfast prices very modest.
The motel decor is somewhat dated but , as many reviews have said, all very clean, tidy and functional if a bit on the small side - perhaps this is just the unit I had. Average level of quietness from traffic but the noise of shower and toilet flushings from the unit upstairs was somewhat disturbing. The bathroom ventilation fan was very noisy and eventually gave up the ghost and was a likely cause of failure of the whole power supply!
As for most motels like this, parking is outside the units...it might get a bit crowded if the motel was booked out.
As other reviewers have mentioned the hosts were friendly and offered a credit against the power failure which was apparently easily fixed.
