Reviewed December 23, 2013

I loved the Valdez. The facilities were clean and quiet, there was heaps of privacy - including my own courtyard. The staff were friendly and really understanding and the service was excellent.

The location is close to town, and everything I needed was right there. Highly recommended!

Thank you to the Manager at the Valdez Motor Lodge who through his kindness and the caring saved me from a living hell!! I had unwittingly booked into the most horrendous hotel in Hastings - The Angus - A hell hole that has to be seen to believed.
I was directed by a kind lady to the Valdez. What a perfect paradise, cleanliness second to none, all conveniences needed for a relaxing bath, the most comfortable bed, private outdoor space, and for me free wifi with more than adequate download to allow me to study online - thank you thank you thank you.
When you travel , and are in need of the perfect place to stay that has creature comforts, security and nearby amenities such as the friendly H & H hotel and the Indian restaurant just meters away - this is value for money that you cannot go past.
Regards and many thanks for such kindness

Room Tip: There is absolutely nothing that I can say that is not good, the parking is right outside the door...

Came here for a conference and intially chose it for close proximity. The owners were really helpful, the rooms were nice and quiet, and well off the road. This was especially handy since there were roadworks right outside! We didn't hear a thing.

Rooms were HUGE for the price, perfect for self-catering and very warm. Room was heated with a heat pump. There were electric blankets as well.

Spa bath was a nice added touch! We were happily surprised with how nice the room was for the price, and would definitely return.

Stayed here the night as we travelled south back to Dunedin. Such a lovely place way down the back away from the road Nd it was so peaceful. Room was spotless Nd tidy and everything worked well. The only let down was the heated towel rail failed to work. The beds where nice and comfortable Nd we slept well. Was nice to find free biscuit Nd stuff with tea Nd coffee Nd the grounds where we'll maintained. Our host was bloody great. Will be back again someday.

This was an excellent place to stay - the room was lovely and warm, the beds were comfortable, and the facilities were excellent too.

The owners of this motel were very helpful, understanding and lovely to talk to. The staff were excellent and always had a smile on there face. The service of our room was outstanding.

There is not much more than i can say except that i greatly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for accommodation in Hawkes Bay, NZ. and also I would like to say a very big big thank you to the owners for their great hospitality.

We have just had another perfect stay at Valdez ( 7 nights), We regularly visit Hastings from Qld, to catch up with Family & have found Valdez Motor Lodge the perfect place to stay, the Property is immaculate, & the Owners are awesome, nothing is too much trouble for Warwick & Judy & Staff. We cannot reccommend it highly enough, perfect for long or short stays, Families or Couples, having been in the Industry ourselves for a number of years, we really appreciate the welcoming feeling of our "home away from Home" see you again soon!
