We had one of the interconnecting rooms. Our room was very clean and had all the things we needed. The beds were bit soft for my grandparents but overall a pleasant and comfortable stay. I would stay here again.

My family of 3 stayed at the Marina Motor Lodge before catching the ferry. I had booked a standard downstairs studio but we received an upstairs room which came with a lovely enclosed balcony. Upstairs has internal corridors making it hotel rather than motel like, it also has longer reception open hours than a usual motel. The rooms are quite...

Regular guest. Reason this is our motel of choice is: small and informal but the staff are regular, know their regular guests, which are mostly repeat customers, often working in Wellington. Great location, walkways, restaurants, shops, everything just along the road in Mana. No restaurant on site but the staff have an arrangement with The Supply Room bar and grill...

A great place to stay, nice and clean, great friendly staff who went out of their way to cater for us. We live in the country and enjoy the quiet, we did have concerns about noise when we arrived. Despite this place being located between the railway line and the State Highway, we found it very quiet, just like home....

Stayed here three nights, clean and tidy but decor looking just a little tired but not a problem especially for the price of a Standard Twin Suite. Was upgraded to an upstairs suite for the same price. Down stairs suites means your car is just about at your door. No Sky TV and the free WiFi is a little slow...

I would like to thank the staff of Marina Motor Lodge, I recently stayed there with 17 other members of my family for a wedding. 7 members were flying in from Sydney on the Friday night and arriving at 1.30am Saturday morning. I was left with the keys to their rooms and let them in. The rooms were great for...

Stayed 2 nights here with family in December. Our room was clean, spacious but the decor a little tired. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was the hairdryer. Very poor.

Very old and needs updating. Didn't mind as it was spotlessly clean. WiFi only 100 gb which was useless. Kept dropping out. Hairdryer useless. No air blowing just heat. Lucky switch turned on. Im 6' tall and switch was 7' up. Again very very clean. Bedding very frayed needs replacing now. Metro train runs at back of carpark and highway...

Marina Motor Lodge was an overnight stay for us in Wellington. The rooms were very large and spacious. The room was extremely tidy and very clean, with the exception of the toilet fan, which was dirty and unclean. The deal breaker for us, was that the room curtains do not block out the light, as the curtain rails allow about...

Stayed at this motel for 3 days. Room was ver spacious, decor a little dated but very clean. Bathroom was huge, fan seemed to go 24/7 which was a little annoying.

“Our room 106 on ground level faced West and suited us. Upstairs units probably have a sea view, and a wider view of the area.”
