58 On Cron Motel
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Franz Josef
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We spent two nights here on a recent visit to Franz Josef, and could easily have stayed longer.

Our room was clean, spacious, comfortable and warm and exceptionally well equipped for self-catering.

The heater was a little loud and the walls a bit thin, but neither was a major problem.

Internet was fast and free (100 MB per night).

The motel is located directly across the street from the Hot Pools which were wonderful after a day of hiking.

I absolutely will not hesitate to stay here again on my next trip to Franz Josef.

Well done.

This review is for a stay made in early May 2013.

If you are looking for a nice motel with large spacious accommodation, furnished with basic necessities and with beautiful views nearby, as well as, be looked after by wonderful staff, 58 on Cron is an excellent bet. Despite staying here for just one night in a King Studio, I was impressed with the quality of the room. Room was well-maintained with proper amenities, the bed was huge and comfy and the kitchenette was well stocked should you decide to do some simple cooking (buy your own groceries of course). Staff was also very helpful should you want to make bookings for heli-tours around the glaciers and more. Overall, an excellent motel which is great value for money and is highly recommended.

Basically picked this accommodation from previous reviews and we were not disappointed. Great location in the town and a warm welcome with suggestions for dinner and places to visit. Room was well appointed and clean and the heater worked efficiently to warm the room. WIFI is now basically the same everywhere in NZ through an external provider with a code card for a 100mb download.

We stayed here for one night. We phoned late that evening and despite the fact that we were arriving out of hours the owner made it very easy for us to check into our room. Clean, perfectly appointed rooms, would highly recommend.

Franz Joseph Glacier is a small town and this is a perfect setting for enjoying it. We had a two bedroom suite with a kitchenette. Electric blankets to help warm the beds on cool nights. Laundry facilities on site. Hot pools across the street, kiwi rescue a block away and the rest of the town only 2-3 blocks.

Arrived here quite late and were greeted in a very friendly and helpful manner. Room was warm, comfortable and clean and motel was in close vicinity to hot pools and restaurants. Very good value for money. Only disappointing aspect was the so called free wi-fi, which was very limited and ran out within a few minutes.

We stayed one night while passing through after a long day of driving/stopping off to see the sites. We were happy to receive a warm welcome from the hosts and equally pleased with the clean and large room for the night. Woke up to views of snow covered mountains (we were there in winter). Highly recommend. Also, Alice Mays (five minute walk down the road) for a warm dinner and glass of wine was the perfect way to end a great day!
