We booked this motel unit over the Christmas period, hoping for a relatively good place to base ourselves. The price was well over what it was worth - welcome to Tauranga holiday pricing.
The room was tired and dusty. We had one teaspoon, no oven tray, no blind in the kitchen. I had to phone up twice to get the linen service. While the drunken fight in the pool outside our windows wasn't the owner's fault, it was a clear reflection of the clientele staying in the holiday park. And I shouldn't have to explain to the guy on security that fighting (and drawing blood) in the pool was not acceptable.
This is a motel unit in a holiday park squarely aimed at the market many other holiday parks try to exclude. I shouldn't be asked to pay $175 a night for that.
