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.

My room was spacious, nice bathroom, comfortable bed and clean. Host is very kind and friendly. My only gripe was the pool. It was very hot and I looked forward to a swim. I just was able to get in and never thought ahead. The top bar of the ladder was missing and I almost could not get out of the pool (I am not the lightest or youngest). The rest of my stay I therefore could not enjoy a swim.

We were not given the unit that we had booked and paid for some time prior. The motel was full so had to wait until next day to change units which was inconvenient but the reason given seemed to be valid. The second unit was not as well presented as the first. The shower was very dated and the front drapes, the first thing that is seen on arrival were very poorly hung and appear to have come from elsewhere as they were far too long. No can opener. Both units were very clean and well serviced. The hot water in the unit was way hotter than approved safe limits...so thankful that our grandchildren were NOT with us.

my husband, myself and our 10 month old baby stayed her on a Saturday night. The room was dated but clean and had a very comfortable bed with an electric blanket. Shower was lovely and hot with good pressure. This is one of the very few motels that offers a free portacot. When we got to our room late on the night of arrival they had made the cot up for us and turned on the heater in the room that it was in. Would definately stay here again. Reception staff were extremely friendly

We travel regularly to Hamilton to visit family and always stay at this motel. It has spacious rooms, comfortable beds, fantastic showers and best of all - it's always been immaculately clean. Never been bothered with road noise here. Could do with a couple of hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes on. Suitable for travellers, short/long stays, couples, family. We found it handy enough to everywhere we wanted to go.

The sign at the front says Quality Affordable Luxury. Don't be fooled ...it's not Quality nor Luxury! The rooms are very dated and esp. the bathroom was not clean. Shower is awful and cold most of the time. Beds uncomfortable. One person in my group ..an adult ...had to sleep on what looked like a couch bed. Very short and springs sticking out. The walls between the units seem paper thin and you can hear people talking in the other units ...ear plugs required. The plumbing is also noisy so every time the taps get used in the neighbouring units you can hear it. Definitely won't be back.

Very worn fixtures & fittings, broken door handles, dirty furniture. We were reluctant to get into the beds. At $60 per head it was expensive given the sub standard quality of the units . The website was misleading and not reflective of the actual standard of the accommodation.

My friend and I had missed our domestic flights as our arrival back in Auckland was very, very delayed. Our only option was to get a rental car and drive home. We arrived in Hamilton at 11.30pm and were so relieved to find a motel that had a unit available as many were full. The manager was very obliging given we had arrived so late. We just wanted to get to bed and sleep as we were so exhausted. When we opened the door to the unit we were pleasantly surprised by the size and the cleanliness of the unit. Had a good sleep (mattress firm but I like it that way) and we left before 8am next day.

the location was great with bus stop at the door, Our room was the 2 bedroon unit the lounge was ok except the blue 2 seaters they very worn and very hard to get out of and you sink to the floor in them, The kitchen was well equiped but needed a good clean as the oven was not that clean the top was not bad , the bed rooms where ok but the beds were hard and not that comfy. we had separate toilet which was great The bathroom needs a good clean as it has very bad mould around the bath and some of the tiles and the window ledge needs a lick of paint as it was black. But over all this unit could be good with a bit of T L C, I hope the spa pool is now up and running again as that was broken and about to hopefuly get fixed

Great little place with great prices, a very knowledgable and helpful owner, and super comfy beds! We stayed here an extra day longer than we'd planned because it was just perfect for a sightseeing vacation of Hamilton, NZ. Close to downtown and the harbor area, walking distance from grocers, wine and liquor stores and exceptional restaurants. Our rooms were spotless, had tons of hot water for showering, and were very well maintained. Anyone who wants a great night's sleep for a lovely price should check out this motel. We've traveled all over NZ and stayed at many hotels. This one is a clean and quiet jewel of a business and we are so happy to have found it.

Would not even leave a dead animal here for free. The micro wave oven was rusted and dirty with old food, the pots and pans were not able to be used as they were worn through and or burnt and dirty, the rooms had an awful moldy and unkempt smell, the bed linen was marked and dirty, the walls, floors and curtains were grubby and old. The night we stayed we were exhausted and need a short nights rest. The management were more interested in their family meal than our needs. At 01:00 am a group of young people arrived and kept their car running with little crying children inside for about an hour there was no way they (management) would come out and shut them up. POOR MANAGEMENT.
