Room was dirty. Cost more than a week's rent. Cobwebs, mold, windows that wouldn't lock, dirty glasses. If we hadn't been so tired we would have left when we saw the room. Avoid! Hasn't been updated since the 1960s. Beds are uncomfortable. Couches in the lounge were nasty.

Stayed 2 nights. Although blocks wall we could hear people talking to all hours in the adjacent rooms. We had very little sleep. The units and grounds have been let go. While clean the unit and furniture is very rundown and very basic. No additional bedding available in the room and very thin bed covering. Window stays are broken and wallpaper peeling. We will not be staying there again as there are other motels in the area with more to offer at the same price. Please read the other reviews for the general consensus which is not overly great, sadly.

Overall I was satisfied. Especially the owner was very kind. And meal was delicious.
I was happy with the children and did not feel uncomfortable.
It was a good time, I'll come back next time thank you

We stayed in this motel a couple of years ago and liked it, so we went back. New owners.
The place is very outdated, tired and over priced for what it is. Not enough powerpoints or inaccessable. Wifi free for 2 hours only.

Stayed here for one night. If it'd been anymore I'd have sooner slept in the car.
Adjoining rooms had people coming and going until 1.30 a.m. then they decided to watch Ultimate Fighting on T.V. literally all night long. So loud we could hear the commentary. The other neighbour played loud boom-bass all night!
I went to close the window and the catch came away in my hand.
Had to push close from outside.
No smoke-alarm in room, thought that was illegal?!
No hair dryer.
No shampoo.
The kind of place where you dare not look under the bed, getting into it was squeamish enough.
For $140.00 an utter joke. Visit at your peril.
Thank Opua
