We stayed for one night on business before our flight to Wellington and visit to Wharekauhau Estate (which to be honest is at the complete other end of the luxury spectrum).

The room itself was clean and functional, but pretty basic. The bed was too soft (although we're used to sleeping on a futon) and there were no tissues in the room. There's free on-site car parking (one per room) but the spaces are quite tight with most of them angled.

Overall we felt it was a bit pricey at NZD$140 for the night (via an accommodation aggrigator site) but the location is good and it's close to supermarkets, Manukau shopping centre and Good English Roasts for a quick NZ lamb roast dinner.

The pillows were hard, but the room was spacious and the water pressure strong. The wi-fi kept dropping out and the car parks were narrow and difficult to get in and out of as well as hard to exit your car. The rooms were clean thanks to a great housekeeping team. The air freshener used to spray the room left a strong scent that lasted for a few days and was too much. The Lodge is a good location close to everything such as restaurants and supermarkets all within walking distance and the airport is a 15-minute drive. The toilet paper was a cheap budget type as it was so thin more like the kind you would find in a backpacker. The cost of the room was a little high, but I guess you are paying for the location.

Just a short walking distance to the Manukau Mall, McDonalds, Wendy's, Subway, Burger Fuel, Countdown and Pak'N'Save.
We intended to stay for a short period, but a medical issue arose and the receptionist rearranged other bookings to make sure we could stay in the same room.
The staff, including the cleaners were very friendly.

The only reason I gave a 4 rather than higher was that WiFi was hit and miss

The location of this motel is quite good, not too far from the airport and walking distance to Westfield. There is on site parking.
The one bedroom room was quite good with modern kitchenette however the sofa was so sunken that without a cushion under you you were sitting on the frame. The sofa was also quite stained.

Awesome place to stay. Super friendly staff including cleaners. Pool was great and loved our room. Met all our needs. Shopping within walking distance which was great. The only thing missing was air conditioning although there was a ceiling and stand alone fan it was still quite hot. Overall though it was a very pleasant experience.

It is summer in Auckland and we did not realise that the motel does not have aircon in the room. It was so hot in the room.

The fan available in the room is so weak. The wifi during peak hours is useless.
The TV remote does not work properly.
On the positive note, the room is claen.

Handy Airport Overnighter
$155 One queen, one king single bed.
Clean, well appointed.
15min from airport.
Parking is tight.
Easy check-in.
Thin walls it seemed, along with noisy neighbours made for a broken nights sleep. Nice, but would try some place else next time.

A great location close to the Shopping Center and Movie Theatre.
Everything we needed for a relaxing overnight stay. Comfortable bed and very clean. A short distance from the Bus Station. 20 minute walk.

Agree with above comment. Book the Sudima or Jet hotels sudima is nicer. -they are close to airport and they have free shuttles and all you need.

*We replied this question twice but Trip advisor did not post our answers so hopefully this one shows* Hello there, Thanks for choosing Manukau Motor Lodge in Manukau city. Villa maria Winery is 20 mins from our motel and It would be closer if you book the hotel room in Airport area, Mangare. However you are welcome to stay with us and if you are looking for sitter service, you can contact us for more details. Kind regards Tony
