“Walk to everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Clean, comfortable room, pretty dated but refurbished bathroom was nice. Free parking a bonus, close to bars, restaurants and harbour, all within walking distance.....great Vietnamese restaurant 2 minute walk away. Our bedroom window unfortunately opened onto the street, so not very private and quite noisy at night, even with window closed.....rooms set back further would be a lot quieter. Although pretty basic, location made up for it.

Room Tip: Book a room away from the street!

Good clean motel. Recently redone bathroom, very clean and white. Wonderful location, close to main attractions, cafés and restaurants - easy walking distance. Surprisingly quiet for a busy motel in Central city.

We got off the ferry from Picton and arrived at the Apollo Lodge rather late on a wet and windy Wellington night. It was well past 9pm and my wife and I were grateful to find a reasonably cosy room there after several failed attempts elsewhere... We were able to park our car close to our room and walked to the city centre the next day. We ended up staying two nights!

Hard to add much to the other reviews: it is a basic but complete, clean, generic motel very well located near the action. The parking was free but I had to find a spot that was not in front of my unit and it was pretty tight, was worried that someone would dent my bumper! The wifi Internet was free but limited to 200MB, which is "ok" for checking your emails and FB page, nothing more! I still recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask to NOT be in the room next to the reception or you will often see a bunch of people passing by y...

Our room was clean and had the basics but nothing more. There was no place to open a suitcase where it was not in the way and there was nothing about the room that would put it above the ordinary. But what this motel does have is a wonderful location, walking distance from the central sights of the city and close to a large choice of good restaurants. Free off-street parking is a good feature, although the parking area can get very crowded when the motel is full.

Everything is pretty much as stated in previous reviews. Well maintained. Clean. Great neighborhood. Convenient. Friendly folks. Wonderful restaurants within a few minutes. Live theaters and movies close by.

This accommodation is exactly as described and advertised. For being a clean and conveniently located place, in the heart of the city where you can walk EVERYWHERE, AND for having FREE off-street parking available, you will not be able to beat the price and value. We chose this place based on previous reviews, all which I feel were quite accurate. However, if you looking for any type of luxury or accommodation above the "no frills" level, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for a very affordable, clean, convenient place to rest your head, and a base for exploring the city, this is a great place to do that.

We had a little difficulty finding the place, as we were unfamiliar with the city and were using a map instead of a GPS. You may want to to look up the location in advance to familiarize yourself with the area so you aren't confused like we were. We were much better off when we were walking! :)
