Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in room 1. It was very clean and well set up. The host was lovely and made it feel like home. We requested a hair dryer and got it with no problems. Great location as there are cafes and restaurants about a minute walk down the street. The beach was accessible, and beach towels are provided upon request. Overall, we would stay again without a doubt.

Ajay and Veronica went overboard trying to accommodate us and our needs for Christmas, our daughter's birthday and New Year when other accommodations ran out on us. They followed up with emails and calls, really tried to give us what we needed. Excellent customer service. At the end of the day we couldn't stay there this trip BUT we definitely plan to stay there the next time we are in Auckland.

This motel was very convenient to where we needed to be. Booked online. The accommodation was very clean and tidy including bedding and linen. Coffee, tea and some milk provided too. Even an ironing board and iron very useful. Slept really well. Only negatives are 2 single beds in the lounge area - not very practical for a family and kitchen wall units very dated and could do with a refurb.

This place needs to be tore down. I can't believe the reviews it's getting. The room stunk, the bedroom smelt so bad I couldn't even sleep, it was disgusting. The shower was horrible! Disgusting dirty carpet. The only good thing is that it is in walking distance of some beaches. Horribly overpriced. Worst place we stayed at out of 13 accommodations. It was a step away from a hostel. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Stay further outside of Auckland like Matamata (Chestnut Lane) or Whitianga (Oceans Resort) and get your moneys worth.

The owners and management of the motel are sorry that your stay way not as you expected. We have looked at the issues you raise, and are just sorry that you did not see fit to raise them with us during your stay. We take great pride in the cleanliness of the motel, and in the comfort of our guests. It is our goal to ensure that all guests have a great experience whilst with us, at what we believe is a realistic value for money price. We wish you well with any future visits to Auckland and hope that you find accommodation to meet your standards. I feel that travellers should also be made aware that your suggestions of places to stay are really not a suitable option for visiting Auckland. Whilst beautiful locations in their own right.

Nice little refurbished 70's motel just off Tamaki drive and a short 10-15min stroll to Mission bay.
Very clean and tidy, with very nice welcoming and understanding reception people.
The unit I was in (3) had a small kitchen and lounge with single bed and a bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed.
Although the physical building is quite old everything was absolutely spotless, fresh and clean.
Shower pressure was not great and could do with an upgrade.

Stayed here 4 nights @ $175 per night from 16th -20th May . A little over priced I thought for that time of year plus it is an older Motel. Room was clean and tidy.
The outside lights are on ALL NIGHT and lit up the room like a xmas tree! Hated it. So be warned.
If you were sleeping in the single bed in lounge area you would be awake all night, even worse you probably would of gone outside and thrown something at it! We had to close our bedroom door to block it out.
I meant to mention maybe the should get a sensor light instead!!!???

Room Tip: Ask about outside lighting keeping you awake by shining in room. A major problem.

We stayed for a couple of nights at this motel, we had two units both were comfortable although the bedrooms were on the small side. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The motel is situated in a lovely bit of Auckland and is only a stones throw from the beach. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés close at hand.

This motel was such a pleasure to stay! The hospitality provided by the owners made our stay a comfortable one. The cleanliness and fully equipped kitchen was more attracting than staying in a 5-star hotel that just provides you with a bed & tv.
Aarangi Motel is also in a superb & convenient spot to bars & restaurants, a minute stroll to the beach, public transportation and free Wi-Fi. I would stay there again and would recommend to anyone who loves to be in a safe and friendly environment.

Stayed for one night at Aarangi Motel. While the buildings are not modern, the warmth of the hosts and cleanliness and comfort of the rooms is excellent. The location is good too for walks along Tamaki Drive (and the fantastic views over the Waitemata Harbour). Lots of top restaurants nearby at Mission Bay. Ros is always happy to give guests advice and assistance on places to visit and things to do.

Free secure parking is also a bonus - costs a lot in the city.
