“Greater than the sum of its parts”
Reviewed November 29, 2009

Having experienced a most traumatic time with Quest Suva we moved here. It is tucked in a quiet spot behind the Government buildings in Suva, but still walking distance to the CBD. The reception staff was fantastic, as was the security guy. The two bedroom family room we stayed in did, in fairness, leave a lot to be desired - there was an overpowering smell of mould when the door was first opened to reveal a spacious, but severely dated apartment. The cause of the smell was revealed as soon as someone had a shower as the water draining from the shower, which is over the bath, returns via the drain in the middle of the bathroom floor to form a small lake several inches deep over the entire floor. This then takes quite some time to dissipate.

Having said this, however, we really enjoyed this place. Somehow it has an overall ambience that is relaxed and pleasant with truly great staff. The teens loved the giant pool and waterslide which is attractively set amongst vegetation rather than being quarantined out in the blazing sun. The outdoor poolside restaurant served very acceptable food at fantastic prices, again with a very pleasant ambience. All staff we encountered displayed genuine warmth and a desire to help us enjoy our stay. The room tariff was also incredibly reasonable. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, particularly since high end accommodation is hard to find in Suva.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in October 2009. The motel is in a quiet corner of Suva just behind the Government Buildings and Albert Park. Reception staff were friendly, and when there were problems they were happy, if not entirely fast, to help. The rooms were spacious and clean, although the lighting was fairly dim. The pool has a nice waterslide and waterfall, though it didn't look pristine. The poolside restaurant also did a very passable breakfast.

I stayed in the Motor Inn for 3 nights and I really liked it there. The rooms were spacious, there was a cooking facility and we enjoyed the swimming in the fun-pool......they have a nice bar and some guys sang some Fijian songs.
the hotel is situated in a quiet neighborhood - so a good deep sleep is guaranteed.
I suggest to take a cab after dark from downtown Suva. Thats what my Fijian friends said to me.
The Staff was very nice and next time I need a reasonable clean accomodation, i will take the Motor inn again.
Bula!
