good location just 15 minute walk from the town. We stayed at the 2bedroom apartment, with a loft upstairs, It was small but it was really cozy. The jacuzzi was great! so nice to have a bath after a long day. Everything was clean. Kitchenette was good too with all utensils provided. Only thing to improve was the heater, it...

Was a bit disappointed as looked better in the pictures on there website, had a spa bath but looked very old, our room had a skylight over the top which meant the light came in very early in the morning, did notice there were no smoke alarms in the room which I thought was a bit odd. Could do with...

Reason for choosing this motel is because the price was advertised on road sign. It was within our budget. Very basic but clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. We do our own breakfast and it had a toaster, kettle dishes and utensils. Had a spa bath but it looked very old so didn't use it. It is located on...

We went here on a trip with family. Everything was clean and functional. We booked the standard apartment (3 single beds and 1 double bed) for 2 nights. WiFi was fast and free. The owners lent us socket adapters for free, too. Basic amenities provided. Not bad for a short stay.

Stayed overnight in Rotorua before heading back to Auckland. Motel is on a busy main road so might be a bit noisy for some people but we managed ok. Rooms are basic but clean with a bathroom/spa bath, kitchenette with toaster, kettle and microwave and comfy bed. It wasn't posh by any stretch but was perfectly ok for one night.

Bit very clean and tidy. Comfortable. Has the basics you'd need and also a spa bath and off street parking. Pleasant welcome. Average pricing. Busy time of year and got the last room here. No complaints.

Avoid this motel if you are a couple. We were provided room4 at $110 per night for two nights (early Jan). The room is budget and we expected that. The linen was clean. However the bed was quite small (double). This would have been borderline acceptable if the mattress was decent. However it had appallingly bad roll-together. I expressed my...

My family and I were getting off farm to relax during the busy calving season. We thought (thought is bold and underlined three times) that this would be a good place to just relax. Not even close. First, we made an online booking, arrived and then were told at reception they didn't have a record of our booking because their...

If you ever visit Rotorua do not stay at Ace Motor Lodge. Booked a room online that specifically said it had a stovetop. Arrived to find no stovetop! The lady clearly knew what we were talking about and was using the language barrier as an excuse to rip us off. She told us if we want a room with a...

After looking around in the main road and finding motels upwards of $130, we found the Ace Motorlodge which was only $80 and included free wifi! Easy check in/out, and located near the Ploynesian Spa and the town Center. Only our second day on our vacation, his place was a good find. Very quiet room.
