Great location for airport if thats what you need

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 29, 2022via mobile
Interesting. Rooms are older but serviceable. Clean but a older weird smell.

Appears to be a lot of permanent residents in the small complex which leads to some interesting residents and aromas from some units.

Managers are very friendly and helpful and make the motel a better standard then it would be otherwise.

Onsite laundry $2 for washer and dryer. Large fenced area if you have kids that need to run around (with a lot of permanent resident kids...)

10 minutes to airport so great location for that and motel does $10 transfers which is a great price

    Fabulous location close to airport
    Motel older but very clean and roomy.
    Able to leave car for a few days if heading away. Transfers to and from airport included in the very reasonable price.
    Friendly reliable staff. We will definitely stay again.

    We stayed here overnight while waiting for a flight to Australia. Was absolutely perfect for what we needed. 1 double and 3 single beds, kitchen, bathroom, heaters, fan, tv and great wifi. Friendly service and the shuttle from airport and back - 👍. I would absolutely stay here again in transit. It is a bit dated but that had no impact on our stay.

    Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Loved the hospitality of the staff. Overall, worth the cost. 😊 I was abit scared while I was there by myself, and the staff knocked the door to double check for the towels. It was scary by myself while I was in deep sleep after long international flight but it's best place to be with family.

    I have noticed a few bad reviews on this place but i travel alot and i was happy with my stay here. Yes the room was getting a little dated but it was clean and tidy. Presented well. The shower was amazing the pool was stunning. And the owner super friendly. He happily transported us to and from the airport. And keep in mind this place does not cost and arm and a leg. I will certainly be back

    Do not stay here. This place is absolutely disgusting. I have never been so grossed out in my life. The room had blood over all the curtains , the room was dated and beds were lumpy and extremely uncomfortable and would flip when you would rolled to the other side. The sheets were filthy and made everyone’s skin itchy. We ended up staying awake the whole night to protect our belongs and not to catch what ever was in the beds. The bathroom was the worst part. The roof and walls were covered an green and black mould and the shower floor was grimey and slippery. The motel is hosting Housing New Zealand guest who are extremely noisy parting until early hours of the morning. Cars were racing up and down the driveway all night and the other guest were threatening us and implying they were going to steal our belongings. We had to drop our car to a family members in Auckland as we were told the car would be broken into if we left it in the car park. When we approached the manager and explained our distress he said “ you are a liar , you have a plan and trying to get your money back from me” We explained we were not looking for money, we wanted him to realise this place is foul and not suitable for guests. He kept saying “you are a liar, you are a dirty liar , you planted the dirt”. We explained we had seen illegal activity within the premises and he told us he was going to contact the other guest to come “have a chat” with us. Cutting it short DO NOT STAY HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET SICK AND HAVE NO SLEEP!!
