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.

..but this place is nothing short of great! This motel is pretty unremarkable in appearance and is located in a long strip of nondescript hotels in the lodging district of suburban Hamilton. I made a reservation there because I stayed at the airport Bella Vista in Auckland and felt it was a good hotel for the money. We got a two room unit with kitchenette for my 17 year old daughter and us (50+couple) for USD132 per night. The place was spotless and looked brand new. There were no nicks or dings in the walls and everything we needed was provided. We were able to save a lot by preparing simple meals in the room--there was a gourmet grocery across the street from a warehouse grocery about 1/2 mile away. There was an older man in the office, who I presume was the owner, and he was very helpful with information about the local area. We had planned to move further South to the Waitomo cave area, but ended up staying here because it was worth the drive to stay in a better property. Street noise was not a problem at all, and the heat and cable TV worked well. Hamilton itself is a pleasant town, although there are not any major tourist sites there. We had a car and the property was close to downtown; I cannot say whether it is well served by public transit. All in all, I would recommend this place highly!

There were incredibly noisy guests until 4.15 am. I contacted management but nothing was done hence a sleepless and stressful night. I am a regular user of Bella Vista, but no longer in Hamilton. The sound insulation between top and bottom floors is incredibly poor.

Location : where other dozens of motels are located, not a far drive from city center, gardens, stadium, grocery store
Front desk : nice man, but nothing out of the ordinary
Rooms : small bedroom, small bathroom, no roof over the balcony/walkway (upstairs), so you can get very wet going to your room, average overall
Free wi-fi, ample parking
Would we go back? I don't think so

We stayed at this motel on 13th and 20th February. We chose to stay here because of our other pleasant experiences at Bella Vista motels and we were very pleased that we did. Jenny was lovely and went out of her way to help us and we would have been in trouble if Roger had not given us detailed instructions of how to get to Auckland airport, Our accommodation was excellent and included a Spa bath. We would have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the personal attention. Starting from the warm and welcoming reception to beyond the time of check out. Although there is a 20min walk to town (think: healthier option) the walk by the river makes the extra time worthwhile. The breakfasts were hot and always on time. The supermarket and Helm for dining are but a few minutes stroll from this location. Thank you Roger and Mrs Roger !

We booked a family unit for 3 adults and 3 children. We had 2 bedrooms, one with 2 single beds the other one had a king size bed and a single one. In the lounge there was a very uncomfortable sofa bed. We had asked for six beds. We asked for sheets for the sofa bed and were told that they were in a drawer. Unfortunately we didn't check until 9.45pm and then began a major hunt through every cupboard and drawer in the apartment. There were no sheets anywhere. We went to reception but it was closed, tried ringing them but no answer. So no sheets for the night. When we complained in the morning there was no apology or redress. The manager blamed the housekeeping staff. The other complaint we had was it was an extremely hot day, there's no air conditioning and only 2 small fans for the three rooms.
