“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 13, 2010

Was disappointed with the shabby appearance and lack of maintenance, such as: Toilet seat not secure, TV in bedroom not tuned to any stations, cupboard doors falling off hinges, shower rose broken, rotten boards around the shower and windows, windows that had no latches, curtains that would not pull across fully, light bulbs that were blown.
On booking this motel it was listed as 4 star plus, so we expected far better than this especially for the price!

Stayed there for 2 nights in a Studio Unit. Had booked it online for NZD115 per night on their website. It was located very centrally close to the Mall, eating joints and Manukau CBD area. I had a hassle free stay. The auckland airport is located in the middle of nowhere and Manukau is the closest suburb. Visited the Irish Pub (walking distance) and was ideal to for the boys to chill out

Our group of four were looking for a hotel near the Aukland airport for an overnight stay before we hopped on a plane back to the states. Rayland Motel was able to accommidate us in a two story family unit. The motel looked a little tired and had a tall security gate around it .That should have been our first clue. We agreed to stay because it was only one night and they had room for all of us on short notice. As we dragged our luggage up to the second floor and into our room , the first thing we noticed was there was no air conditioning. The second floor loft of our unit was HOT and stuffy. There was a fan in the corner of the room so I went over to see if I could open a window to get some air circulating. The tiny window, which had no screen, was level with the state highway. Ugh!! There was no way I was going to breathe car exhaust and listen to highway noise for $159 a night. I could see the hotel was attempting to increase their image because they had put some nice white linens on the bed. Thank God for those white linens because they highlighted the lively bed bug crawling across the bed!!! We were out of there in a flash!
The motel gave us a full refund and we ran back to The Ventura Hotel where we had stayed our first night in NZ. The Ventura was more than accomidating and we got a nice hotel with breakfast for a lesser price. They also had a free airport shuttle!
