The Motel rooms are rather basic but spacious enough, maybe little worn out by the years. Microwave would have been good but the room only had a sink and a fridge, not really sure what the sink should be good for. Shower is not the best construction since it kind of makes you flood the bathroom if you want to...

Very basic of 1970s era but very comfortable. Sadly we had no Microwave oven so would advise you to check if they are available in other rooms. The heater takes some time to warm the room. To be honest the Motor Lodge is below par for today and needs updating. Never the less a cheap stay over and priced according...

We wanted a motel just for one night that was handy, clean with a comfy bed as we'd come down on (mainly) business. This motel has been refurbished and our room was warm, had new carpets and curtains and was clean and tidy. Heater was a little noisy but we turned it off at bedtime. The staff were pleasant and...

My husband and I stayed in this motel in Westport. The rooms are basic, but they have everything you need so no complaints and for the price you pay it is good value. The staff at the front desk are very friendly and were able to book us in for another night when I came down with terrible migraines and...

Staff were friendly and room very comfortable. Free parking and free wifi. Always great to get fresh milk provided as well. Good price as we arrived and started looking for accommodation. Close to shops and eating places.

Make sure that you reserve as they are a very popular place to stay in Westport. Large sports bar, nice lounge bar, they also have a bottle store. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food service good, nice NZ wine selection, and food we had for dinner was delightful and local (chicken breast, kumura chips, kumura mash and local fresh vegetables....

Fey and a new trainee, Deb were both friendly when we arrived. As far as the room, the bathroom sink was exceptionally small, you'd have to have hands as small as a 5 year old to fit them under the faucet. It was almost comical. The most important thing was the lack of WIFI. We live in a world now...

Stayed here for a few nights, found the staff quite friendly and helpful. Rooms are neat and tidy and found the double door access front and back handy with your car directly out the back. Would suggest the rooms out the back if you are a light sleeper but being a quieter town you probably would have 1 car an...

We stayed one night heading north, and found a great size room, nice and clean and comfy bed for $99 in peak season, which we thought was very reasonable. We were in the front rooms and after about 9pm there was no problem with traffic noise as it's a sleepy little town.

“The rooms at the back have no view (but the main street is not that great to look at anyway) and they are buffered from the road noise by the front rooms. For quiet - ask for a room at the back.”
