From the outside the motel looks dated, however the rooms are very clean and inviting. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment and it was perfect for our group. We were there for the World Cup and the owners had provided breakfast to all of our tour group which was very thoughtful. It was an easy walk into town and to the stadium. Bars were only a short distance away. They have 1 hour of free internet per day also which is unusual as most places were only 20 minutes.

Was down in Dunedin for the rugby world cup and Commodore Motel/Apartment was the only place i could book without a 2 night minimum stay. The price was reasonable given it was the rugby world cup time. On checkin the receptionist gave us a map of dunedin and explain where things, how to get to the game etc. The room (Studio Standard) was very compact (for 2, perfect for a single person) but was clean and tidy. Given that i was staying only for a night i did not find the size of the room a big issue. It is pretty much the first motel you find when you enter Dunedin so handy location.

I stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2011. Although the building looks a bit dated on the outside, I was pleasantly surprised by the decor and facilities in our room. Excellent location right near Dunedin's beautiful Botanic Garden and there is a supermarket and great pizza place nearby also. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful, we were permitted to check in VERY early and checkout late with no extra charge! They also offered to take us into Dunedin to join a tour - I highly recommend this Motel.
The only downside is that it is on a fairly busy road - take ear putty or plugs to ensure a good nights sleep!

We had a party of 7 and stayed in the studio suite on the 3rd floor. No elevators. Walked 3 flights of stairs with all my bags!!! Light bulb in bathroom kept blowing. Toilet flush did not work. Dish washer kept breaking down. Dryer was a RIP OFF$$$$ at $2/10 mins!!!! You'll be broke coz the dryer vent is probably all plugged up too. Housekeeping was a laugh. Did not even clear the garbage or vacuum the rooms. High speed internet wasn't even free after all we paid for the room. AVOID AT ALL COST.
