“An Auckland flop-house”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

This hotel is absolutely disgusting. We started by waiting at the Auckland Airport for 90 minutes for the hotel's courtesy shuttle. Upon arrival we immediately noticed that the hotel was run down and not maintained. The lobby was dirty, the men's public washroom in the lobby reeked of urine and the washroom walls were tagged with graffiti. The swimming pool was filthy as was the pool deck.This hotel is a scam. They take advantage of travellers who book on the internet and are duped into thinking that the hotel offers value for money - it doesn't. It should be re-named the Auckland Armpit Inn. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. In fact, it should be reported to a local health authority. The only redeeming feature here was the fact that I was given a cash refund for my non-refundable internet booking and the Best Western hotel across the street was able to accomodate my last minute early check-in after a 13 hour flight from Vancouver.

Room Tip: If you booked this on the internet I suggest that you demand an immediate cash refund and go across...

This is THE most DISGUSTING place I have ever stayed in!!!! The place was not clean, peeling ceiling in the bathroom, shower was broken, toilet looked old (and well used), tiling cracked, pipes tapes together, fridge so iced up you wouldn't be able toput anything in it! We arrived late at night otherwise we would have left!!! We slept in our sleeping bags because gosh knows what was on the bedding!!! There was no wi-fi and we were offered free breakfast but like HELL I would eat in a place like that!!! I wouldn't stay here again if I was paid to!!!! Rude person at the reception, uninterested, did not look too clean!!! I still have the creeps!!!!

Room Tip: Do Not stay here!!!

From the moment I walked into reception, I just knew this was a bad idea. The staff are pretty disorganised and I get the distinct impression that they have never ran a hotel before. After throwing the keys at me without telling me where and how I get to my room, I only wished I had walked out the door right there and then and not continue with the horror show that unfolded.

The lowdown? The musty, unpleasant smells that greet you along the unkempt corridors and sadly continues on into the rooms. I booked a corporate studio but don't be fooled, they are dirty, dated and look like they haven't had a proper clean since the beginning of time.

Before I entered the room, a young man appeared with a vacuum cleaner telling me he still needs to clean the floor. I looked into the room and the floor was in a mess but surely they wouldn't of just given me the keys and told me to go into the room if it was in that state? Yes they did. When I finally got into the room, there were no towels, shower mats or pillow cases so had to go back to reception to complain. Also, the walls are paper thin so it was almost like being in a hostel room with 4 other people. I was kept awake all night by a coughing man, 2am knocks on the door and chatty girls. The shower was grim with a broken shower head and the toilet smells of urine and unwashed pants.

In short, just don't stay here. Yes it's cheap. But it's just plain nasty. If you need a hotel by the airport, go to Ibis and pay a wee bit extra. You will be glad you did.

First impressions were horrible! We had paid online for one night and when we arrived were utterly disgusted we didnt even think it was the right place considering the photo's all look great. Rubbish everywhere! Staff were so rude and even started shouting at me! Needless to say, we cancelled our reservation and went to the hotel next door, so much better! Auckland Airport Inn is the most disgusting hotel ive ever seen and should not be allowed to operate!

Room Tip: DO NOT stay here!

In the last 5 months my husband and I have stayed in 50 budget/mid range hotels and to date I have written 1 review because the hotel was really nice.

I am now writing this review because this hotel was just absolutely dreadful.

We booked this hotel through Air New Zealand Holidays. It cost us $39 (US). When we booked we asked for an overnight room. What we got was a room that could be used from 9am until 5pm on the day of arrival. (i.e. a DAY rate room). We were told that we could pay extra to stay overnight. NOT A GOOD START!!!!

(Note: Should you book this or any other hotel through ANZH and you want to cancel they will charge you $125 (US) per person which for a $39 room is terrible).

When we arrived we were given a key for a room that had not be cleaned. The beds were unmade and the towels were dirty.

The next room which had (supposedly) been cleaned had:
1) No towels
2) Dirty bed linen
3) A cigarrette burned carpet
4) A patio door that did not close properly so you couldn't lock it.
5) A view out the window of a hedge (which in itself was okay) but underneath the hedge there was loads of litter.

The reception was dated and dirty and the 2 bedrooms we saw felt and looked dirty.

There was a restaurant but given the state of the rest of the hotel I would have been to scared to eat in it.

There were empty sweet packets strewn down the corridor. (Just plain weird).

We stayed 2 hours and then left and went to another hotel.


The ONLY positive was the good selection of tourist information leaflets in the Reception area.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

This place was disgusting, it was dirty, smelly, noisey, the free wi-fi didn't work, the bed was hard as rock, the tiles in the bathroom were broken...didn't bother having a shower figured I'd be cleaner if I didn't that night and the next morning turned out there was no water anyway, pity the family with the young baby who were staying there with no water and management didn't seem to care. Everything was stained...carpets, chairs, walls..cigarette burn hole in the quilt. TV an old type with no remote. didn't even have a coffee it was so bad. Fridge had stuff on the outside that looked ominous....Only stayed one night but will never go back.

Room Tip: Don't bother.
