Great place to stay and very affordable!! One room unit slept 4 of us, 3 kids (4,6, & 8) and myself. A queen bed and one single bed to start off with but the owner was more than happy to set up another single bed in the room for us. Had all that we needed for our stay of 2...

First and foremost "Was blown away" by the humble attitude of the Owner. They are more than welcoming and accommodated to all our requests with a smile. Place was much more clean and has facilities than our expectations. I would say it would be the one of the most affordable yet great Motel in Napier..

Basic facilities but good value for money, beds aren't great if you do have a sore back or something but they were fine for us. Full kitchen and bathroom, very clean, quiet, service was very friendly and helpful- happy to provide information on local sites and activities. Wifi was fantastic! Would definitely visit again :)

Great attitude of the owner, very welcoming. We were a large group of pre-wedding day mid-20 year olds. The Motel was a very welcoming place, close to shops and liquor store, has a million and one things to do for kids with all outdoor toys, bikes and nearby park. Wifi was free and unlimited, shower pressure amazing and everything thought...

It was great little place. Comfortable big bed and warm. Clean facilities and very good value for money. The shower pressure was really good and even the tv placement was right. We will definitely be back to stay again.

The staff were wonderful. We stayed in the family suite and it was perfect for us. Very clean and comfortable. Vert affordable and close to town. The only downside is the bathroom needs an extractor fan.

Were very disappointed with this Motel. Needs a lot of TLC. Room was not clean, even pots and pans need replacing, they were not clean. Everything is very tired and grotty. Would not stay there again. Only six units so not as though they are rushed off their feet.
