Although it doesn't look much from the outside the inside is a nice surprise. Nicely decorated smallish but clean room. Great for what we needed and the receptionist was a friendly and helpful.
Great value for money and will definitely stop over again.

If you are looking for a flash motel, this will not suit you. Value for money and clean rooms, this is the one.

I recently stayed two nights at this motel after scoring an excellent deal on Expedia. When I rang to advise that I was checking in late, I was told that reception is open 24 hours and that what ever time I arrived it would be ok. Much to my delight, even at 8pm I was welcomed with smiles and excellent service during check in.

Although the outside looks fairly old and run down, with the carpet needing an upgrade, the room was clean, as were sheets and bedding. TV, fridge and microwave and even a heatpump. Although I had to pay for internet, I didnt mind a bit, reasonable. Wendys was directly across the road for a convenient dinner and snack. The motorway, gas station, money machine and supermarket were all within close proximity too which was a bonus.

I will definately be returning again and recommend.

Room Tip: Room 22 - upstairs has heat pump / air conditioning

We arrived on a winters afternoon, raining and cold. Staff knew we were arriving from the outback, Queensland, so they found out the winter temps back home and had the heater on at 25 for us. It was so cosy and warm for us. Our room was lovely and clean. Did not want for anything. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Bed very comfortable. Even though it was on the main road, it was very quiet in our room. Thank you Sai staff, you made it very relaxing for us.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor and had a great view

Nice bedding and clean and recently redecorated (although DIY-quality in places). Friendly and helpful front desk. In the lower price bracket this is a stand-out.
Good handy location in Greenlane. Unfortunately soon to have a building site next door which may impact the quality of life in the short-term.

We satyed at the sai motel for convenience to one tree hill. If you are looking for a centrally located motel then this is not for you. However, it worked well for us. The room was adequate and was serviced daily. The staff were very helpful providing us with ironing board and iron as well as an emergency needle and thread. The motel is within walking distance to ellerslie train station for trains and buses into the centre in under 1/2hr. There is also a cafe and laundrette next door as well as some places to eat on the other side of ellerslie train tracks.
