this place was definitely one of the few places with availability and was for a reasonable price, so we booked it. it is a rather run down hotel. at check in, the check in agent was too busy with paperwork to acknowledge our presence. She could not even trouble herself to say "be with you in a second." the rooms seem to have some cosmetic upgrades, but you can tell it is a very run down hotel. the rotten egg smell permeates the inside of the hotel so much that it actually smelled better outside than inside. our tv was stuck on the holiday inn channel and we had to wait 30 mins for one of their porters come up to assist. the parking here is horrendous with not enough spaces for all hotel patrons. the price for internet is ridiculous and the 30 mins of free internet in the lobby was worthless as it did not work except for the hotel web page. to top it all off, the maori show that they advertise on their website and directly outside the hotel as being offered was not offered while we were at the hotel. this hotel is close to some of the attractions, but it is a distance from the main part of rotor. several strikes and the holiday inn rotorua is out.
