We spent one night here at the start of the year and stayed in a lovely two-bedroom apartment.The apartment was nice and big and was able to accommodate five of us comfortably. It also had excellent cooking facilities. The location was very close to the airport, making it perfect for our early morning flight. The hotel managers were very helpful and accommodated us when we informed them that we had an extra person that needed to stay with us.

Pros:
Great corner room on 2nd floor with high ceilings and exposed beams
Clean, new bathroom
Good water pressure in the shower
Staff seemed very helpful

We were only here for a quick stop-over. I got the impression location was good if you were going to the University, but otherwise not really close to sites of interest

Room Tip: Second floor corner rooms have great raised ceilings with exposed beams. Can't speak to the other rooms

We spent 3 days here after Christchurch's main earthquake in March 2011. Felt the ground shake a few times, but all in all everthing was sound. The room was spacious, clean and organized. The manager and staff were all very helpful and friendly. Do to circumstances we were not able to visit the University or Down Town, however we still enjoyed our stay in Christchurch and this Motel. Would recommend the Academy Motor Lodge for anyone visiting Christchurch.

I recently visited Christchurch to visit my son who is studying at Canterbury University.Academy Motor Lodge is around the corner from my son's house where he is flatting with 2 other uni students. The motel is directly over the road from the Engineering Faculty at the Uni.
It was a perfectly adequate pace to stay for me. No it isn't 5 star but neither is the price. It was warm, clean ,comfortable. I had fresh towels every day and the bed was made up too. The little kitchenette was fine for making a cuppa, or heating some soup. The bathroom, though small had everything- hot shower,heated towel rail, heater,hair dryer, toiletries. The carpet in the bathroom was a bit musty smelling though.
The staff were friendly and efficient. I felt safe staying there on my own.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room closest to the road. The road noise was barely noticeable. Next time I would try a room further back in the complex just because I felt a little exposed to the street.

Stayed two nights recently, was about the cheapest motel in Christchurch available on those nights. Got a small room with small bathroom, on the road edge. (Rm 840)
There was very little road noise despite the closeness of our room to the road.
Bed comfy, room clean. Only real issue was a bit of a smell from the bathroom as the floor is carpeted and probably stays wet a bit! Dont understand carpeted bathrooms but there you go. Good place to stay, opposite the University, short drive to restaurants but we had food delivered to our door and put onto our account which made life easy.
