I stayed here for a night for business reason. The room was a standard shower studio. Price was $195 a night.
The room was of a reasonable size and was clean. For some reason, I was placed in a room which is purposely fitted out for a disabled customer. However, that did not bother me much, but would have been nice if I was told that was going to be the case. The kitchen was clean and functional. The bathroom was big (this was obviously the case due to the nature of the room but I would not be too sure about the other standard rooms) and clean with a full length mirror on the wall which I found to be a nice touch.
The TV was an LCD with SKY channels as well as a DVD player. TV reception was clear. There is also a radio clock at the bedside in case you need it.
Included with the room is a complimentary 50mb of free wireless internet connection.
Check in and out were quick and easy. Yes, you park you car right smack in front of your room. I did not find noise to be a factor during my stay.
All in all, a pleasant stay. In my point of view, $195 a night for a standard room is relatively expensive (it is a motel after all). In saying so, it is probably the only place that is anywhere close to being "luxurious" in Whangarei.
