Positive: easy checkin/out process, shuttle to the airport, relatively clean, cheap
Negative : noisy due to busy road, basic room, aged interior, taking a shower sprays water all over the bathroom, no airco so you will have to open the windows, no bug screens .

Seem to be a lot of the cheap motels around in Christchurch and suburbs and this place was booked for me due to proximity to a customer. Would not return if i had a choice.

Room Tip: Don't think there is a perfect choice since they all face the road

I just read a recent review of this motel by "hotelreview77" and I honestly can't believe we're talking about the same motel!! We stayed in October on our way to Brisbane and again on our return home 5 weeks later (AM has a service whereby you can leave your car with them for a fee while you are away; they looked after our car very well, even moving it under cover when they could). We used their free shuttle with no problems; the driver was delightfully polite and professional even at 1am in the morning!). On checking in both times he even carted our luggage upstairs for us. Both times our room was really lovely; modern, spacious enough, convenient, great shower, extremely clean and fresh-smelling, the bed was very comfortable. Both the driver and the receptionist (I assume they're the owners) were professional and polite. We will definitely stay again - we found the room value for money and wouldn't bother looking for anywhere else to stay in Chch. Thanks so much Airways Motel!

Stay away from this dump! Room was dirty, Found "things" inside the bed. The manager belittled our booking agent "Agoda" when we checked in. The free shuttle service as advertised on their web site was not available, no apology was offered and we had to pay for a taxi to get us to the airport. A" bait and switch" operation reminiscent of older Macau hotels in the time. Really old bed, loud fridge, non existent sound insulation. Poor sleep quality, false advertising and a bad attitude from management. Stay away from this dump. I can't believe that the good reviews this place got are real.

We chose this motel because we had a 6AM flight out of Christchurch. There were 5 of us so we got a two-bedroom house all to ourselves. There was even a little garden outside of the living room. Parking is right out front door, so even it rained heavily, we didn't have to walk too far to get to our car. There was a full size kitchen and bath. Great to sleep 6-7 people.

It's about 5 minuets drive to the airport, and also close to city center (15 minuets drive). The shuttle came right on time at 4am. The other great thing about this motel is that there's a Caltex Gas Station right around the corner, so it was much easier to fill up the gas before you return the car. Internet also worked for all of us.

Room - was neat and clean - no complaints

Motel - was close to the airport so if you are landing late at night, this is a good choice

Customer service - Hmmm... We booked this hotel as they were offering 24 hours free shuttle service from airport. Our flight from Sydney was delayed but hour and a half that means we would have reached Christchurch at about 2:30 AM. We called the motel to advise that we would be late as our flight has been delayed - guess what - girl at the counter says, call us wen you reach we will see if we can pick you up. That was so frustrating, we paid good money for that service and that is what we were told. I called them again and said I dont care how you do it, but I need you to pick me up. She later agreed and all went well.

However, while checking out in the morning - the staff at the reception was friendly and good, no complaints.
