Comfortable, clean, basic and close to airport. Not fancy at all - but fine for the overnight stay i.e. midnight arrival and a quick drive in the hire car. Good service by way of leaving a key in a safe box. $140 isn't dirt cheap - but did the job.

This hotel is ideally located just down the main road from the airport and has a convenience store/ petrol station situated just around the corner. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the manager Lynne is very helpful to new tourists.

Convenient location, comfortable and friendly staff. I have stayed here a few times and its great for those crazy flight times. The only negative is $145 is a bit high for this basic stay but all in all happy.

We found the motel clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The family unit is large and has a full kitchen . The only drawback is the traffic noise from the adjacent highway. We are from the country are are not used to traffic.

It's less than 10 minutes from the airport. Motel-style so your room opens straight onto the car park if you're ground floor. Receptionist was super-helpful with information and booking a preferential rate for a taxi pick up at 4am! Facilities in the room great, spotlessly clean and with kitchenette, decent sized bathroom, with toiletries. In-room information advised re local eateries...

Clean, friendly and close to airport. Ideally situated to Hornby mall, however takeaway Pizza places were not friendly for order and delivery. Ash trays outside on the floors was not really good as people smoking outside still blows into rooms when windows are open., Smoking area away from hotel would be a good idea as inside is a no smoking...

Lovely, comfortable room. Very clean and tidy. Was just what I needed after a few days of roughing it at Mt Cook. Super friendly lady on reception. Shower pressure wasn't great, but the bathroom was good other than that. No complaints

My wife and I stayed here for a single night prior to flying back to the UK. It was ideally located only 3 km from the airport and was just what we needed. The room was clean, tidy and well-equipped. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. We would stay there again, if we needed a stopover.

Excellent location near airport and convenient to city with a car. Hosts very helpful and generous. E.g. Loaned us towels for beach. Helped when wifi failed due to a network problem. Highly recommended as long as you have vehicle.
