Deco City Motor Lodge

Reviewed 14 April 2014

Stayed two nights; arrived 7pm but still room to park car in complex. Room was very spacious and bathroom had spa bath. Bed comfy and rather large. Noticeable that the TV was easy to operate. So often can't get channels at other places. Treated well by owners and staff. Supermarket just a short walk up the road. On main road but didn't hear any road noise. Rooms are also offset from each other so gives privacy when standing at ranch slider. Drapes thick and keep light out, nets also good for privacy.

We have stayed at this motel twice, the first time in 2005. We enjoyed it then, so returned when we were in Napier this month. We were warmly greeted at reception and booked into a lovely bright, clean double room for $115. The room had the best kitchen and bathroom of any motel we've stayed in in NZ. There was a large fridge instead of the tiny apartment size we usually get. In the bathroom there was a fabulous spa bath and a shower head with PRESSURE, wow. The only reason I didn't give this full marks is that there is no extraction fan in the bathroom, so the tile floor and walls got wet from the steam. And there is no grab bar for safely getting out of the spa tub, which has high sides. I will point out that the wifi, as in many NZ motels, is only free for one device. So frustrating if more than one person, needing to access the iPad, the iPhone, the laptop etc. but that's a First World problem! Otherwise I highly recommend this place.

All the amenities needed for a pleasant stay, including an access unit for wife who uses a walker. Clean, full kitchen (no hob but owners can supply 2 cooker hot plates), quiet, DVDs, good wifi and TV, AC, $2 washer, reasonable price ($115 NZ), and Clinton/Robyn most friendly on-site owners. Not in town but just 10 min and 3 km nearby

We booked a studio for two nights. It was the largest studio we've ever had. Modern, clean, attractive. Very pleasant hosts. We absolutely loved it. It had a fully equipped kitchen and a huge spa bath. There was a ceiling fan and air con. Cant recommend the deco city highly enough

Can't say enough about this superior accommodation. Almost better than home, and the receptionist, manager and staff were very helpful and friendly. Nowhere else we'd stay in Napier. Might pay to book - it' very popular.

Room Tip: Book if possible.

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.
