This is an older motel but suited us just fine for the night. It's across the road from the golf course and across a field from the Pohutu geyser which host Tim informed us would go off every 15 minutes approx. Comfortable bed, free wi-fi and kitchen for our breakfast Tim helped us book the Tamaki Maori evening event which we thoroughly enjoyed, especially our zany busdriver.

Room Tip: It was quiet during our stay in March - in busier times, you might want a room away from the road.

First thing: this is a very basic, budget accommodation. For what you pay you get a good sized room, basic but clean bathroom, minifridge, flat screen TV and an OK bed. Plenty of parking too. Location is not downtown, but not too out of the way either. Owner is quite friendly. If a high-end place is what you're looking for, should probably search elsewhere. But if you want a basic place on a relatively cheap budget, this is a great option.

We did read the reviews for this Lodge before we booked it but it really was a lot noisier than we expected. A clue as to the fact that there is a noise problem... earplugs are provided. The room itself was fine. Spacious bright and clean. IT was fine for limited self catering. It advertised free wi fi but it did not work in the rooms at all. Maybe if one were near the office it might have worked but not in the room. The owners were fine, quite helpful advising what to see. So if noise does not bother you this would be good place to stay but be warned it is very noisy with large trucks arriving and leaving all night right next door at a large service station.

We appreciate your feedback and frankness. We ourselves have been disturbed when staying in motels/hotels by other guests and traffic and would have 'killed' for a pair of earplugs at those times. It was those experiences which prompted us to provide them for all guests here. We are sorry if your stay was marred by noise. We are pleased to report we have invested in a very efficient new wi-fi system for the motel, and everybody is happy with that service now.

we only stayed one night, the room is spacious and clean with a small kitchen. decent bathroom. no internet and a bit noisy for the gas station next door, in general needs a renovation but for a short stay it's ok.

We stayed at Rotorua Motor lodge for 8 days just recently and it was absolutely worth what we paid for. There was 6 adults so we had 2 studio rooms which were cleaned everyday. Fresh towels everyday and the owners were friendly as and very lovely people. I will def recommend this accommodation to others out there. If we ever need accommodation we will look them up for sure

Room Tip: Just let reception know what you need and they will help you the best they can.

We stayed 3 nights in Rooms 25, 26, and 17. We were on a school camp, and overall impressed with the quality of the rooms and the cheap prices. Our students enjoyed the experience of staying in a motel, and were delighted to come home each day to fresh towels and sheets. The rooms were nice and clean, simply furnished, but perfectly adequate for our requirements. The pool and spa were great; the students stayed in until the pool closed each night. Despite warnings about road noise (earplugs provided, just in case), I slept the whole night through, and loved the comfy beds; I slept so well the students didn't even wake me with their talking :) The hosts were lovely, and very accomodating for our group; they organised the BBQ for our first night there, and went out of their way to find adjoining rooms so that our students would be together and safe. They also recommended "The Fish & Chip Shop" for dinner one night, and even had menus on hand to help us decide. They went out of their way to help us when a student came down sick, and even rearranged our day-trip booking to Hobbiton on our behalf. Also, the BP next-door for the morning coffee run was a lifesaver! We will certainly be heading back here for school camp next year.

Room Tip: We had rooms near the reception; very little road noise, and nice and cool.

My adult daughter and I were impressed with the excellent quality of this place for a very reasonable price. The rooms were bright and cheerful with comfortable lounges, decent-sized table and a really good kitchenette. The bed was very comfortable and I had a great sleep. I found the hosts friendly and really easy to chat to and have a laugh with. I really appreciated the fact that we could stay in a motel where my daughter could be in a separate room to me, because I snore and would have been stressed that I was keeping her awake. But no need; we both slept soundly in our separate areas. Excellent value for a very reasonable price; we will be back again next time we are in Rotorua.
