I stayed for 1 night, with a late checkout until midnight for an early morn flight. I choose this property for convenience to Avarua facilities, and the fact that a late checkout until midnight was available and affordable. This motel is best suited to the very independent traveller/business people who know their way around the island well, and who seek out a comfortable bed to rest, and space within the room to spread out. No frills are available here, and I wasn't looking for any either! There were few guests during the time I stayed and this suited my preferences very well. Parking immediately outside the motel was handy. Beware the road can become extremely noisy once the surrounding bars close. I would stay here again, inspite of the minor nuances described. Why? I got a very good deal from the onsite host for my length of stay. All up, Central Motel is a good find for the budget concious and overnighters market on Raro. Proximity to the airport reduces the cost of a transfer.. Telecom's internet bureau via the short-cuts across the road: as I didnt have a lap-top. Trader Jacks for bistro meals and ocean views.
