Our room was 31, right next to a big hall used for celebrations. It was so loud & the people next door (who rent a room long term) were up til 4am! On night 2 I asked them to be quiet which is not like me but we were exhausted.Pay a bit more & stay somewhere else. At least room...

This motel needs a major overhaul or needs to be closed! Noisy, bright lights shine through old windows, shower grout all mildewed. Surface clean only. I could not sleep the whole night as I was worried what might be lurking in the dark. Shuttle service was good but the very few staff/owners not friendly. Smoking allowed outside of rooms so...

This place is abit dated old and tatty and in need of a makeover! Has that old musky smell in the room too like my grandmother's house. The room just doesnt feel safe and secure too! Also 7am in the morning really isnt a great time for housekeeping to just walk on into your room to clean without knocking first....

This place has good airport access, is basically clean, but tired. This is the only place that we have come across with virtually a fully kitchen, full size oven and double sink drainer, yet although it sleeps 3 there was only a small table in the kitchen area with one chair and another chair in the sitting area. Once we...

Arrived ex international flight at midnight and took taxi to this place (taxi driver didn't know where it was). Upon arrival, no-one was around, no obvious signage or bell for late arrivals to ring etc. We had notified the motel that we would be arriving around 1am. Taxi driver waited to see what we wanted to do, I guess as...

I booked one night for 3 of us. At first glance the one bedroom family room seemed basic, old and tired but okay. However, I would NOT recommend this motel to anyone! The toilet and handbasin and sheets on the beds were the only clean things in our unit. The white towells were grey and had spot stains on them,...

We stay here before we flew out the guy got up and took us to the airport at 4.45am He was friendly, and we were able to leave our car which was a bonus. We flew back a week later and a sleepy guy came for us at 12.45am once again he got out of his bed, very friendly chatty....

Was very pleased with the accommodation, even though it was only a stopover night, the staff are welcoming, rooms are comfortable, beds are awesome. The rooms are basic, clean, and tidy. Close to International Auckland Airport, shops and restaurants, they have a free shuttle service and will do storage for your car as well if you are staying there. Good...

Arrived late into Auckland and found our way easily to the motel. Room was clean and although only two of us had a two bedroom with seven beds. Shower was a shocker with barely a trickle of water. Free parking a bonus.

Clean and comfortable room with full kitchen, great value for the price. We arrived at 2am and were met by a sleepy, friendly guy at reception. Free shuttle back to airport. Short walk to shops - take seats, superette, fruit & vege shop, bottle shop. Would definitely book again, don't expect luxury but great airport stopover.
