“Good value”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

We stay here whenever we travel through Auckland airport. The rooms are very good, have everything needed and are clean. The airport transfer vehicle was a bit tatty and the staff were not very enthusiastic but our room was faultless. The last time we stayed there were some noisy local tenants outside our room.

Room was freezing cold. Windows were all wide open on arrival on a chilly evening. Room smelled strongly of smoke even though we had asked for a non smoking room. Stainless steel floor in shower was horrible. I could not put any water in the electric jug in the wee small hours to make a coffee before leaving for the airport. I tried to put the spout of the jug under the wash basin tap but it was impossible!Terrible experience which was made even worse by the surly, bullying attitude of the person who drove the shuttle bus to the airport. Never again.

I stayed here to save time getting an early flight, I asked for a none smoking room, on arrival all windows where open and during the night you could smell the smoke, room was clean. The shower was about six inches off the floor of the bathroom and was made of stainless steel and retained the heat if you where having a hot shower, not a shower for the elderly. I got the free shuttle to the airport, the driver appeared and told us the van was outside and to put our own bags in the shuttle, he looked half asleep, when we got to the airport I thanked him and he never even replied to me, I felt like I was a nuisance to this guy. Also the person next door had there TV going and it was hard to get to sleep for a 4:30 departure.

For the price you pay, this can be considered a decent airport motel. Rooms are dated but clean and spacious. The location is good for a one or two night stay before leaving via Auckland airport, but I would not recommend it for an extended stay.

Good value for money and every thing we needed. Clean and tidy,towles changed and beds made-even had the few dishes we had left done while we were out for the day. Room was clean and the only thing we would have to say as a negative was there was no Sky TV. We were also a little unsure what we would find. But have to say pleasntly surprised and would return.

we actually booked to stay twice in march in this motel. First is was a one day and second was a two-day stay.

When we checked in first day on 4:00pm we were surprised to be told that our credit card has been charged for one day already so we have no way to use cash to pay it. It looks like the owner is very cautious of the cancellation of the booking. Then we told the owner that we will be coming back two days later and stay again. The owner took the note that we will pay cash on the next arrival.

The room is obviously very large. The furniture are on average with full kitchenette. This would allow you to prepare for a simple breakfast if you buy things from super market. Unfortunately there was no kitchen tower so I have to go to the motel office to ask for it twice.

The fixtures quality needs a bit of attention. The screws from the shower handle was missing so it dropped very easily. I could see there are quite a number of dents on the stainless still bottom so it is obviously an issue that was not fixed for quite some time.

You would need to prepare your own shampoo and shower gel as the motel only provides a basic thing there.

On the second time check-in the owner gave us an upgrade to a bigger room which is much better than before. It was a weekend and there were not much booking so we were lucky.

There is a free wifi there. However the wifi AP is installed just on the top of the management office in the front. If your room is in the far end then your wifi signal would be very weak and slow.

The motel is close to the airport and offers free pick up to airport. However there is no supermarket or restaurant near by and you have to drive to the town to get them.

Room Tip: If you really care about Wifi ask for a room close to the front management office as Wifi AP is ther...

This is a long, honest, but positive review:
I was very nervous booking a room at this motel due to the varying reviews I found online. I decided to take a chance and book a room for two nights. My husband and I arrived in the late afternoon after landing at the Auckland International Airport. We were very surprised by the exterior of the motel; however, we decided to not continue on and see what the interior of our room looked like rather than judging the "book by it's cover".
We checked in without any problem; received a WiFi Code (included in room price), and went up to our room.
Our room was large, tidy, and simple. The TV was huge! The kitchenette was well equipped with tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cups/saucers, and glasses. Plenty of space near the refrigerator and microwave to prepare simple snacks/drinks.
The bathroom was clean; no curtains on the window, but the glass was opaque/frosted to keep privacy. The shower was spacious but only had a small space for a bar of soap- the rest of my toiletries were left for the floor of the shower.
We had an issue (simple) with the water heater our first night- the water would only run cold. My husband went down to the office around 9pm to ask for assistance, and the owner promptly responded in person- fixed the issue with a smile!
The bed was incredibly comfortable. There wasn't an overhead fan, but a portable fan left on the floor for use. We left the windows open at night for a nice breeze. The area is quiet at night, however, it does get a bit loud around 6-8am. Easily muffled with the windows closed.
We had a great stay. I recommend this motel for anyone looking for a very (inexpensive) simple but clean place to sleep.
