Close to the airport. The rooms are dated but are clean. The price is not so good, we had a better deal last time at the newer Ventura Inn. But they were full. We had a family room where the kids had a bedroom upstairs. Breakfast was included and delivered the night before. Free airport shuttle which we made use of in the moring.

Alpers lodge is situated close to Newmarket and Aucklands CBD. The rooms are very dated with old furnishings but was overall a great price at around 90NZD Per night. Alpers Avenue is a one way road and can get quite busy however if staying in one of the end units its very quiet. We didnt experience the restaurant but did use the hotels internet which was good value.

This was a return visit as the Alpers Lodge is on the main route from the airport - about half hour by car or shuttle bus. It is situated close to the motorway, which is very convenient for travelling on. The Link bus is about 200 metres away and stops at many of the downtown attractions.

My room looked very smart with coffee, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge and iron. The bathroom only had a shower and not bath, and had a tired appearance, but was clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. You need directions as leaving the hotel on the one-way system can be a problem!!!.

This used to be a Flag Hotel with a good seafood restaurant, but now Comfort Inn has turned it into an oriental restaurant and I don't like spicy food. However, breakfast is still good with either continental buffet or cooked breakfast.

After landing at 5AM in Auckland and driving a rental car from the left side, it was great to have a motel with easy access. Our room was ready when we arrived. The motel is rather old and needs some updates, but the room was clean and it was quiet. Although not downtown, there were shops and restaurants a few blocks away and you could walk to the Auckland Museum. Getting out of town the next day was no problem with the highway nearby.

The hotel was a bit noisy due to some guests who were partying a bit. Part of me wanted them to be quiet and part of me wanted to go join them! The staff was more business like than friendly. They didn't know how to award me my Choice Hotels points.

The hotel was easy to find and is less than 30 minutes from the airport even in early morning traffic. The airport was easy to find. The price was right and fine for one night but if we returned to Auckland we would try somewhere different.
