Reviewed 25 August 2012

This has to be the worst motel in all of New Zealand one that demands payment before even one sees what they are going into. It was cold dirty shappy and very old. The sheets on the beds smelt of BO and I am sure they had never been changed. The bedding was old and very thin.Outside was dangerous with moss covered uneven pavers which were littered with cigarette butts . I went in as a single person and it was so cold I had to put the spare towel over me to keep me warm as the heater was broken and didnt work. Avoid at all costs and take no notice of the star rating

Stayed: June 2012, travelled solo

Had one night, very clean unit, well appointed, comfy beds and so quiet at night even with it being not far from motorway. Unit was outdated but had a nice feel to it, very cosy. In three bedroomed unit, plenty of room for a family. Lovely hot shower.

The whole two bedroom unit stunk and was just as bad in the morning as at night. I would never never never stay there again. Everything was very old, tired and needed replacing. I didn't like sleeping in the bed, using the towels and refused to take a shower. My children begged me to drive into town and find somewhere else, but at midnight, this was not an option. Disgusting, old, nasty and NOT CHEAP. Don't go here. The place should be pulled down.

papakuramotel, 오너 at Papakura Motor Lodge & Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 20 July 2012

Hi, This is papakuramotel.
I am sorry about the reviewer, but I do not understand the reviewer's comments.
I think the reviewer confuse the motel name. Many motels, in papakura area, advertise their property name as 'papakura @@@motel, papakura $$$motel or papakura XXXmotel'.
And our 2bedroom unit is disable unit. So, the unit has a big shower room. It has enough space to acess a big wheelchair. And I changed the bed 2 yerars ago. So, the viewer's comments is not consistent with my room configure. My motel's building is little bit old, but inside stuffs are not dirty and untudy. I have pride of my property. User's review is very important to motel. So, I always doing my best to keep the room to be clean and tidy. Thanks.
