I came up from christchurch to auckland, and just needed somewhere to relax and unwind after a stressful few months, i looked up a lot of hotels in auckland, and noticed pacific inn and gateway motel and travellors inn were the cheapest and all had last minute rooms but id heard some really negative reviews on the other two, so i chose pacific inn the rooms looked really nice on the web sight, on the sight i checked rates and it said the most expensive was $99, i then rang to make sure there was rooms available, and how much it would cost me per night, i was told on the phone $79, i thought yay great on the budget, as i had planned on staying a week until i moved into my place. Upon arriving at the hotel i walked in and noticed the not so attractive looking corridor, a so called restaurant that wasnt open and looked about the size of a shoebox, when i arrived at reception i then let the lady no i had rang half an hour ago about a room she then said yea sure, i arrived at 9.30 in the morning then was asked to pay $140, i then explained about what i had been told on the phone, i was then told i had to pay a day room fee ontop of the nightly price, i was gobsmacked and couldnt belive it, i paid anyway as i wasnt sure if i could find a room elsewhere due to the short notice and wallabies and all blacks match at eden park, but i think that it is really unfair they are charging people a day room fee and a night rate and based on where the place is located, mangere one of the worst places in auckland , icould of checked into the holiday inn or grand chancellor or a mystery hotel in the cbd through wotif at that price at the same times of the day and it would of been worth it as they are quiet luxurious. Overall i must say the rooms wernt to bad they were very neat and tidy, clean linen, beautiful duvets, and pillows, bathroom quiet basic no bath just shower but claan and not any shampoo or conditioner on offer at 140 a night. Just dont get it. Its quiet sad because tourists are going to think we are ripoffs in this country if this is what this place is doing to people.
