Where to begin? The stains on the sheets? The mould on walls and shower? The filth on the bedside tables? The curtains hanging off the end of the rail? The disappointed look on my grand daughter's face? Basically this place is disgusting. We didn't dare use the shower - no way of lighting it and it was a dark cavern....

This Motor Inn is in need of a huge amount of money to get it too a reasonable standard..We unfortunately didn't have alot of choice..It was unclean with old linen etc. I would only return if I could physically see improvements. On a positive note its location is great..walking distance to shops, restaurants and beaches..

We stayed here one night only with a group of us - all 3 rooms were in varying conditions. It is very very run down and not very clean. Our room wasn't as bad as the other 2 rooms and when it was pointed it that the cleanliness wasn't up to standard we did receive a discount for our group....

Oh my goodness this place is a shocker! Beyond disgusting. As we walked through the door ( second attempt as given wrong key the first time) there was a huge coffee/ tea stain all over the wall. Every inch of this place was filthy. We tried to find somewhere else to stay but no luck, I could have cried. It...

The best view for this motel is of the outside. After that it is all downhill apart from the reception staff who were friendly and helpful. Mould in the bathroom, dirty walls, fridge not working properly, swimming pool with slightly turbulent water suggesting improper filtration and so the list goes on. The motel has good parking space and is about...

Needs a major clean our room was extremely dirty and the sheets looked used. There where marks on the blanket and the room stunk of stale cigarettes. Good location so its a shame it is so run down and dirty, we would never stay there again.

Nice looking on the outside and close To the beach and walkable distance to the shops. City is not too far from here. Rooms smell "musty" not good for asthmatics. Very basic rooms Showers had unacceptable amounts of mould Would not stay here again due to the mould and the Smell which agrivated asthma.

This was a very very dirty place!!! There was body hair all through the sheets, which hadn't been changed, clumps of hair on the towels, mold and dirt etc everywhere and a very musty stale smoke smell with cigarette burns everywhere!!! Not a nice place at all, we had 2 rooms and both were horrible!!! Never again!!!

Cigarette butts, broken glass on the balcony, room infested with ants. Then staff kindly put me into a different room that had mold all over the walls. No sound blocking between room so was kept awake by every sound from the next room. Small tv and the air conditioning didn't work. Under the stairwell, of the main hall way, was...

My daughter rang today 11/1/17 and spoke to the manager - Maryanne she asked how close the motel was to an attraction in Auckland and the lady told her to google it and then she went to ask another question and she hung up on her. I called back to speak to her myself and also to make a booking...
