Deco City Motor Lodge
Ranked #16 of 47 Hotels in Napier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Although the owners were away on their summer holiday, Ian and Margaret, the stand-in managers, couldn’t have been more warm and welcoming.

You will definitely need a car for the Deco City Motor Lodge as it is too far to walk to the town centre. And when I was there, it was completely full, which meant parking in the main courtyard area was tricky as there were many vehicles with only just about enough spaces with some double-parking.

The studio room was large, bright, clean, comfortable and very nicely presented and had everything you would need, including air-conditioning, microwave, large fridge and excellent, fast wi-fi. [There are two Countdowns, opposite each other rather bizarrely, just a 5 minute drive away].

Having a shower in a large, jacuzzi corner tub was a little odd, with limited shower curtain protection to keep the water in, but the bathroom itself was a good size. The net curtains in the room obscured a wonderful morning sunrise view. The kettle leaked and the water kind of spouted out – though I am sure that the front desk would willingly have swapped it for another if I asked them/had been staying for longer. There was some background traffic noise, as Kennedy Street is remarkably busy for a relatively quiet town, but the noise wasn’t intrusive.

But overall, Deco is a very good accommodation choice in the delightful city of Napier.

A last minute booking took us to Deco City. A great place to stay, comfortable and really helpful staff. The studio was well appointed, even had a jacuzzi bath! There was even a pool which was a complete surprise. We would certainly visit again.

What can I say that hasn't been said before? My daughter and I travelled to Napier for the Deco Weekend. This was my first time there (or, anywhere in NZ) and was pleasantly surprised at the comfort of our room. Everything that we needed was provided, and more. A kitchenette, generously sized bathroom with spa tub, excellent shower and plenty of light, comfortable beds and large towels! We loved the old cars parked around, including Clinton's, an old hearse and other lovely models. Great customer service. Enjoyed talking with Yvonne and Clinton. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a room with two beds, if needed.

Wonderful 4 day stay over Art Deco weekend. A credit to Clinton and Robyn who go the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. Would highly recommend this motel to anyone. Facilities are great and great having queen bed options when there are two couples. The unit was very spacious and air conditioning was a blessing! Have booked already for next year.

The accommodation is of high quality. It is about a 25 minute walk into Napier, but the road is flat and there are regular buses during the day. There are a supermarket and other shops within a five minute walk, as well as takeaways.
The property is very well run and the staff are exceptionally friendly. They are rightly proud of what they offer; the rooms are particularly well appointed.
I would not hesitate to recommend Deco City Motor Lodge to any traveller.

Spacious room and surprisingly well-appointed for the price. We had a corner room which was huge and very comfortable. A little out of the centre of town but only a 5 minute drive to restaurants etc. Large spa bath in room but we didn't use it.

Room Tip: Ask for a large corner room.

We have a group of parents and kids from Taiwan to stay for a week , during our stay, the owner Robyn and the team had been great supporter for our travel planer and arrange all the transportation we need while our stay.The kitchen facilities are well enough for our holiday, the bedrooms and living room just like our home. It is around 5 mins to walk to the NW supermarket, bus stop is also nearby, for the traveler's long stay, the location is perfect for living shopping and transportation, plus the team are super nice and friendly, it's also value for the money wise. We'd like to recommend to anyone who is planning to Napier.
