Stayed here for one night. The room was clean and comfortable, but the only heating was a small electric fan heater, the type which has been known to be associated with starting fires, and if you need cooling there was a floor standing fan. Suitable some 30-40 years ago, but today HAVC units are far better, safer and efficient.
The rooms are set back off the main road, so there is little if any road noise, but it does seem to be under the flight path to Auckland International, so there was noise from the occasional plane coming in to land.
It is just down the road from Manukau City centre, so it is handy to shopping and close to the motorway. Given the per night cost and lack of HVAC it does seem a little pricey by around $10-20 per night.
That night when we returned, all the carparks were full, so we had to park just outside the motel, still on motel grounds, but a little exposed to passing traffic and pedestrians, and it feels remote from the rooms and hence a little less secure.
Overall ok for a short stay.
