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.

Bedlinen very clean and spotless, comfortable bed. Very basic kitchen with small microwave, limited cutlery and crockery, good access to free wireless internet, sky tv. Not a lot of heating unfortunately and I was there in the winter. Very small shower, overall I enjoyed my stay though.

Found some of the residents who I believe are permanent are very noisy. Units seemed OK very dated these units have been in this area for over 35 years and I think some of the fittings are the original ones.

My partner & I stayed here as it was the closest available place available that didnt charge through the roof. Other friends ended up staying here too so we could all be at the same place, and share a cab.

Yes, its dated - But the room was clean & comfortable enough. Firm mattress, but I like that. It was a hot summers day, there was no aircon, so just getting ready, hair/makeup etc was sweaty work. Thankfully the room had a fan, as it took some edge off the muggy hot weather, but not quite enough. Sleeping on the hot evening/morning was tough, but if the fan wasnt there it would of been unbearable.

The shower had good pressure. But the shower door was badly designed. It opened inwards, requiring awkward manoeuvres to get around it & inside to close it. If I was a few more inches wider, I wouldnt be able to close it. Weird!

Didnt use the wifi but it was free. Good to have free parking. was stoked they had sky sport as we watched some cricket, the picture was a bit buzzy, but manageable (didnt check any other channels...).

The not so cheerful part - Our friends came to our unit to have a catchup before we headed to our event. We cracked a couple of beers to cool down (it was hot) & stood/sat down on the chairs outside our unit. We were by no-means 'rowdy' (honestly!), just 1-2 beers max & talking. The manager came over to tell us he had complaints and for us to quiet down & go inside. This was at 2pm. I know the manager was just responding to another guests issue, but would they complain if there were kids staying & playing & making noise in the pool during the day & what would the manager do in that circumstance? If noise was made after dinner time I would understand the complaint, but not in the middle of the day. Come-on, its not a library.

Me and my partner was looking for motel in Auckland and central motels are bit too expensive for us. So I was looking for outside if central Auckland and found this motel. It is cheaper than other place and also food location. Very close to motorway and just 15min away from city. Facility is bit old but still great in this price. I arrived around 10 pm and they still serve us very friendly and room was cozy and bed was comfortable. Highly recommend this motel if you are looking for reasonable price motel ;)

We have been staying here twice a year for the past 5 years but have noticed a decline in condition, with little or no maintenance. Walls and skirting boards and around the cooker and microwave need a good clean, although bedding, bathroom and sink areas are all clean. Much in need of ripped wallpaper being removed and walls painted for easier cleaning. Otherwise comfortable.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. Units are older style but good value for money, clean and comfortable. Comfy beds, good location for visitors to Westwave Pool, short drive to Henderson. Staff are helpful. Free wifi a plus.

If you are a non-smoker, think very seriously before booking into this Motel. The rooms are meant to be non-smoking, but guests are permitted to smoke directly outside the rooms. This means that the rooms smell of smoke. If you are smoke-sensitive, it is a very uncomfortable experience indeed. There is no real understanding of what a non-smoking environment should mean. Ashtrays are provided, right next to the no smoking and 'we provide a smoke free environment' signs. If you are a smoker, this is the motel for you.

Four of us stayed here over two stints during the Lions Tour of New Zealand 2017. We chose it due to the proximity to Auckland central and its value.
We now realised that there is a reason why this motel is so much cheaper than its Auckland counterparts. As soon as we arrived we felt that the building was in dire need of refurbishment. The room smelt of damp, one window would not open properly, and the shower platform failed to drain effectively, which meant that if you were not first to the shower then you will be standing in a puddle.
The facilities are basic, but sufficient if you just want a bed to sleep in and get by. There are clean towels provided daily and also free tea and coffee.
There is considerable noise from the main road (Te Atatu Road South) and also from adjacent rooms as the walls and floors are very thin.
Overall if you want any degree of luxury this is not the place to be, but if you only need a basic hotel to stay within reach of Auckland centre and the motorway then it is not a bad place to be for a night or two.
