Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an appointment in Dunedin and so needed a one night stay in the city and was recommended to contact the Alexis. The service in booking and confirming that we could park prior to our appointment was so friendly and easy and the room was absolutely spotless. It has older decor but it is very comfortable and so convenient for access to the city. Highly recommend.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in one of your one bedroom units which was very quiet despite
being on a busy road.All the staff were very professional and friendly and very accommodating
letting us park close to our room so we did not have to walk far.It was lovely to walk into a warm unit as the heater had been turned on for our arrival.The unit was super clean and tidy. It had everything we needed for an over night stay. There were plenty of pillows and bedding.The beds were very comfortable and warm.The kitchenette was well equipped with a fridge,had great tea
and coffee making facilities.The bathroom which had a spa bath was spotless.
Alexis motor lodge and motels is easily accessible by car,has free wi-Fi, is wheel chair accessible,air-conditioned,has free off street parking and is perfectly located near the city centre.
We were able to leave the car behind and easily explored Dunedin City Centre on foot.There is a
great selection of restaurants and bars near by for all types of food tastes. The shops, sight-
seeing, Dunedin Public Hospital and Otago University are all within walking distance of the motel.

Stayed for 2 nights during our tour of the South Island and enjoyed a comfortable stay at this motel, well located within an easy stroll of Dunedin town centre, railway station etc.
The room was a good size and with all amenities and fitments provided a great package, bathroom & toiletries were fine but would be nicer with a bit more water pressure in the shower!
Good parking available on a steep lot - better to reverse park !
Free WiFi was very good and reasonable spread of TV channels available.
The lady who was on reception was very friendly & helpful and gave us a map & directions to wherever we mentioned & also gave us some great tips of where to visit - her suggestion to go to tunnel beach was excellent & much enjoyed !
We enjoyed our stay here & have no hesitation to recommend to others.

We were really happy with our room. It was warm and comfortable with all the basic amenities needed. Decor a little dated but very clean. Staff were lovely. There are some reviews of noise at night from students. The managers are aware of this and we appreciated the little note about this and the ear plugs provided however we had no issues with noise in the night on the Thursday and Friday nights that we stayed. This was a great central location for exploring Dunedin city and surrounding areas

We stayed here for 3 nights in Dec 2019. The room is basically an apartment- large living room with a dining area and kitchen. Separate bedroom. The room was very clean. The location could not have been better- an easy walk to the city center with a 6 and 7 year old. Highly recommend!

I had 4 nights at the Alexis Motel in early July and was extremely satisfied. The staff were extremely friendly, as usual. On the Thursday evening we were warned about the student noise, but in my opinion this was not a problem as I stayed in a unit back from the road and did not need the complimentary ear plugs.

Due to a series of concerts in Dunedin, I had to look hard for somewhere to stay and ended up cutting a day off in Timaru before driving to Dunedin to stay. The room I booked (for two nights) was self contained and was clean and comfortable. The manager was very helpful when I checked in and car parking was available no problem. It is in a good location with all amenities close by. I would definitely try to stay there again.

The team was personable and helpful. We were kindly able to leave our luggage at the desk before check in/after check out. The room was clean and had all the amenities we needed. We also appreciated the small touches (ie providing ear plugs for student night). The pull out couch was also great as we were two friends travelling for business! thanks for a great stay!

We had a family member in hospital but we didn’t know for how many days. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and able to stay the 5 days we finally needed. We will be recommending the Alexis motel and using it ourselves again.

Friendly and most obliging staff. A very warm welcome. A well appointed studio unit with on site parking. The motor lodge and motel is centrally located to leave the car behind and explore the city center on foot. Great selection of eateries nearby to cater to all food types.
Thank you very much. I will certainly use the Alexis Motor Lodge again
