                  Punched out wall covered with tape. The most bizarre person working the reception area rolled his eyes when I asked a question, telling me to, "listen, listen!" It was seriously a scene from a most bizarre and scary movie.

                  CHEAP AND RELATIVELY CENTRAL”

                  In one of the central suburbs of Auckland, with your own heat pump, bed, bathroom and kitchenette for sooo cheap. My room was $60. Its not the hilton, don't expect the hilton. But insane value for money. The cleanliness was acceptable for me- the toilet and shower were clean, the bedding was clean, the floor was vaccumed. the reception staff were nice. Highly recommended for a cheap stay.

                  I would not recommend this place to anyone. It smelt awful, we didnt want to put anything on the floor because of it (carpet was gross). The heatpump didn't work. There was no smoke alarm, only 1 cup, 1 knife and a wine glass. There was beds for upto 3 people yet nothing else to accommodate 3 people - nor even 1 for that matter. Person on reception was friendly but it was obvious he just wanted us to leave. We were told to lock door and leave key in room when we left. I would guess this would be because they don't want to hear our feedback on the awful room. Definitely do not take children there, it is very unclean.

                  I do work in Auckland so I need a spot to sleep and shower. I work all day and come back in the evening so I am not looking for a flash room. The room is basic. The whole building needs some serious work done on it. I have learned to bring my own DVD player cutlery knives etc. I would not use the motel for a weekend with my wife but it suits my needs. You pay for what you get and at NZ$70.00 a night I will carry on staying there. The staff are friendly.

                  TV, refrigerator and microwave did not work. UHT milk in fridge was months past its use by date. Mediocre supply of tea sugar and coffee. No cups or mugs supplied. Only 2 small side plates, one spoon and 1 fork supplied. Bed coverings inadequate in cooler weather unless heat pump left going (noisily) all night.

                  Simple basic accomodation. Bathroom wasn't cleaned properly. The shower head was broken and held in place by a piece of duct tape. Bedspread was stained. Not even a coffee mug in the room which is weird because there is a kettle in the room. Was cheap, but I don't think I'll be back again.

                  Bed slats we’re all broken and half of them weren’t even on the bed, everything was broken and it just wasn’t what it looked like in the pictures AT ALL!!!!! Only saving grace was the guy was really nice when I got my keys and was in a decent location. If they fixed the place up properly they’d have an amazing motor inn, so just a bit disappointed that my expectations were not met

                  Microwave doesn't work. Hot water comes and goes, and can take 3 to 5 minutes to come from a cold start. Office is occupied even after 10am on a weekday. The redeeming thing to say is that it's cheap. If you look for a roof and a bed, it's absolutely fine.

                  You do get what you pay for!”

                  First of all we had trouble finding the motor inn as the pictures on the website did not reflect the actual condition of the grounds. The height of the weeds around the rooms and coming through the concrete suggests an aversion to weed killer which is admirable however the untidiness also showed a lack of pride in the property by the owners. I did question my grasp of the English language as well! I had read on the website 'superb amenities' and actually looked up the word 'superb' to ensure that I had not been misusing it over my 50 years of experience. If by superb they mean: - an unused tampon rolling around in the drawer - peeling paint and Kmart stickers (XL and S) on the furniture - antique (rotten) bathroom cabinet - a 2012 water damaged copy of the Auckland Yellow Pages - a stagnant puddle full of mosquito larvae on the 'patio' - a heat pump that blew air around the room On the plus side there was power, running water and the doors locked.

                  but this place was too much. I didn't read the reviews til after we booked the non-refundable so we even stayed twice. The first room had mosquito swarms because the window was stuck open (the solution was to give us a can of bug spray!) The second room wasn't what we booked and there weren't enough beds for our family, though it was all around cleaner than the first. Anything broken was DIY fixed (ie. shower head was taped into place, shower handle was a string through the door).

                  Stayed 1 night in June 2017

                  Acceptable”

                  Room was cold and heating did not work. Room smelt very strongly of bleach. The bed was made but previous occupants dirty sheets were left beside the TV. The flooring and bed covers were marked, sheets and pillow covers were clean. Fridge was dirty and had hairs. Bathroom walls were covered in dust and hairs. Shower surrounds were blackened and ceiling also had hairs. Toilet roll holder had no toilet paper, although this was found under the bathroom basin. Very run down, dirty and disappointing, even for the cheaper price, I will not return.

                  Traveled with my partner and my baby, the place was more than we expected. We arrived late on the 31 of december and the receptionist had arranged for us to receive the key. the room had many amenities, it was clean, and at a very good price. I would definitely recommend it.

                  quite a tight carpark especially if you're on a big SUV. You might need to park at the other side of the motel and not at your doorstep. Some utensils are not properly washed but we managed to wash them ourselves and rinse with boiled water.
