“Family 2 night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

58 On Cron was easy and functional yet comfortable. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful.
The 2 bedroom unit is perfect for a family for a night or two. The facilities were good to a little self catering and easy to get to the local stores and restaurants.

We stayed here for several nights in April and chose this motel on the basis of prior reviews. The room was nicer than we were expecting based on photos on the motel website - very clean, very large, well equipped (we were given a free upgrade to a King spa studio). The staff were also extremely helpful and accommodating - we were given vouchers to a local restaurant (Alice May's, which I recommend), free wifi vouchers, and lots of tips on local sites. The motel is very well situated - everything is in walking distance and the Hot Springs (which I also recommend) is just across the road.

After a long journey and arriving late we were made very welcome. The room was ideal, very clean and comfortable. Location was great with hot pools across the road and restaurants just
a minutes walk away. Would definately recommend!

Large clean, comfortable modern en-suite studio unit. With queen size bed and well equipped kitchenette including hotplates.
Located away from centre of Franz Josef but only a few minutes to walk to centre where there is a good choice of bars and restaurants.
Wifi is chargeable (however had a free voucher emailed to me by booking agency).
More expensive than other motels we used during our tour but maybe that’s Franz Josef. Having said that we would consider this motel again if we were looking for accommodation in the area.

As a limousine driver I always stay at this motel when on the West coast, the rooms are huge and often a spa bath included, the rooms a perfectly clean and the staff always super friendly.
The location is great close to restaurants and directly opposite the Hot pools, and away from the main highway, you can't go wrong with 58 on Cron.

Perfect location, directly across the road from the hot pools.
Lovely comfortable rooms, with plenty of space and very clean. The lady who runs this motel is so lovely and you feel very well looked after, would highly recommend :-)

Room Tip: I would imagine all the rooms are just as nice, plenty of parking too, and I saw BBQ's which wou...

During our two week stay in New Zealand, we stayed in a combination of hotels, B&Bs, lodges, and this was our first motel stay. We weren't really sure what to expect, but had read the generally positive TripAdvisor reviews and were optimistic about 58 On Cron .. and it didn't disappoint! The room was very nice, and seemed quite new. Lots and lots of space. It's a motel, so you can park right outside of your room. All amenities you'd expect in a motel room, including tea/coffee. Some free Internet provided, I think as part of our rate. Free movies in the office! Breakfast was not included in our rate, but the location is great so you can easily find something to eat. Also close to restaurants, bars (ask at the front desk for free drink coupons to nearby restaurants!), and the grocery. Overall, we were really impressed at the quality and value of this motel!
