“Return visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2007

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.

Stayed March 2007

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2007

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.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2007

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.

Length of stay: 1 night
