Reviewed 23 February 2014

Motel is in a great location close to everything. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. The room was also quite big, having a small kitchenette was handy. The price was a bit expensive considering how old the rooms are, we have stayed in more modern rooms for the same price. There is no air-conditioning, poor TV reception and limited Sky channels. The bed was quite old and uncomfortable and the shower was hard to get the temperature right.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Excellent location, very clean, and helpful owners. Maybe a little expensive for what it was, have stayed in more modern motels for similar price. The location is excellent, close to beach, shops and restaurants. Free continental breakfast was a little bonus.

We originally planned to stay just one night, but everything worked in favor of staya second night: reasonable rate for 3 people; very friendly and helpful service by the young French couple (Adonis and Christiane Cazeau) who couldn't do enough to make our stay a pleasnt one. The motel was very convenient located in terms of shops, restaurants, and the nearby beach. Almost next door, there was a fantastic Chineses restaurant with great food and great prices and packed with people. The room we had was spacious and very clean. Wi-fi was a bit of an issue but other than that, it was a very good visit and I can certainly recommend this Inn.

Rocked up into town for one night only on a driving trip around NZ. Had a suite which was more than comfortable with two kids sharing the fold out sofa bed. Very central and walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The managers are very lovely and help full and made our short stay enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a cheapish short stay.

I have just returned from a business trip to Mt Maunganui and spent the night at the above motor inn. I found the room very clean,neat and tidy. Their Sky t.v. offered a good selection of channels and reception was perfect. The room had a stocked fridge and bar. The bath had the added feature of a jakusie as well as a shower.I would recommend them to anyone passing through.At $125 for the night ,excluding items from the fridge this was a reasonable room.

Clean, tidy and quiet! Friendly and helpful staff and your own reserved carpark! Just a short walk to pilot bay, the shops, restaurants and right next door to the cinema!! We only had a short stay but would definately have used the pool if we were there longer. I recommend staying here for all groups - family, couples, friends etc.
