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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Although sheets and towels were clean the carpet and ceilings needed a good clean. Complimentary coffee, drinking chocolate,tea and milk were supplied
Complimentary soaps (refillable containers) were empty.
Spa was nice but required 4 hours prior notice before use.

Paid for the deluxe room, which was far from deluxe. Furniture was shabby and old, as were interior decorations. Shower hadn't been cleaned properly and still had a clump of hair in it. We accidentally left a laptop there but manager wouldn't courier it to us at our expense. We had to have someone go and pick it up.
Wouldn't stay there again.

This would have been a pleasant stay if the noise from the street was not so obtrusive. The unit was clean and comfortable. Situated in the front on a busy street. It was noisy from lunch time -when I arrived until 4.00am!! I got little sleep. Would not stay here again.

This motel is extremely dated, there was mould everywhere in the bathroom (no Xpelair fan provided), the furniture was very uncomfortable, some of the hot points did not work, there had not been any maintenance for a very, very long time. The motel was not very clean at all, there were flies buzzing around, some of the dishes in the kitchen were dirty. This whole place is very much in need of an upgrade.

We definitely would not recommend.

Well it certainly was a different stay than we have had in Hamilton and by no means the best. The first unit (3) we were put into, had no working heatpump and there were cobwebs in just about every corner in the unit. We were subsequently moved to unit 2 which thankfully had some heating but was just as dirty as the previous unit. A mess on the ceiling was wiped off with a wet cloth but the remaining mess remained on the lamp in that bedroom. Upon moving the double bed to make a safe sleeping area for our 2yr old, we found that the carpet underneath was grey in color with the amount of dust that had collected under it - indicating that vaccuming under these beds had not happened in a very long time. To make this even more disappointing/disgusting, upon dropping a child's sock on the floor in the sitting room, I bent down to retrieve it and saw 3 empty Woodstock beer bottles and disgarded sunglasses under the couch - we have left these for you to see for yourself as I dont believe paying guests are responsible for cleaning BEFORE their own check in!
It would not take much to wipe down the walls in the bathroom where the mildew has obviously grown - and in particular the windowsills.

It was a very big disappointment and I am sorry to say that even an offer of the breakfast will not encourage us to ever visit again. We will also be putting this review up on other sites.

This is a very clean motel and reasonably priced. The only problem is the traffic noise - although we are from the country and not used to any traffic noise at all so it may not be a problem for townies!

Heading south after dropping friends off at Auckland Airport. Booked Classic Motel at short notice (informed them of expected late ETA), expected to find note for us on office door so was very pleased to find the office stayed open for us.

Room was perfect - kitchenette in a side room with door leading to shower and toilet. Free WiFi in room mean we could sort out the following nights accom too.

Room was also warm, clean, tidy and quiet with a comfortable double bed and extra pillows available.

Nice place, the manager was very helpful. We got a two room chalet with kitchen . the place was pretty clean but needed a revamp from the 80s. road noise was a big problem and we needed ear plugs . the pool along with the furniture needed a good clean-up. pretty austere but good value and if you needed somewhere to just crash this is perfect
