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.

From the drug deal in the room opposite me, to being told they didn’t do emergency housing and they do big time, to a faulty shower and kitchen tap and finally being charged $20 for a wine glass the size of a measuring cup which was already broken when we arrived, we were completely disappointed and would never recommend staying here.

Im not normally one to complain but I booked here as there was limited options left. The photos on here need to be updated. The room I was staying in had some random guys underwear left from the last stay and they wern't hard to miss meaning the room hadnt had a proper clean. The walls must be very thin as you can hear everything in the other rooms around you. This became really annoying when trying to do study or trying to sleep at night when you could hear next doors tv, someone showering or them talking late into the night. Service at the front desk was alright, the lady was nice but There was also a $100 bond that had to be paid on arrival, which apparently is stated on there website but I couldn't see it anywhere when booking. I was lucky to have spare $100 for 3 days as otherwise I wouldn't have been able to stay or get a refund.

This was easily the worst place we have ever stayed at. We were made to pay a $100 deposit on top of room rate and room was inspected before they returned it. No one would pilfer anything from this place unless it was to take it to the rubbish dump. There was nothing good about this place. Uncomfortable beds, TV with poor sound, one tiny heater, ice cold bathroom. Paper thin walls so we could hear the next door person snoring all night and occupants on the other side returned at 12.40am and talked loudly for about 2 hours. No sleep at all and constantly felt uneasy. While not unclean, it was obvious that sheets and towels were laundered on site, which we saw happening on arrival. The rude staff here should be ashamed of themselves and take a course in customer service. Do not ever stay here even if you are broke, sleeping in your car is a better option.

This is perhaps one of the worst places I have stayed EVER. The room cost $530 for what is normally a $100 room due to Field Days. Everything felt sticky and dirty. The room was very tired with no maintenance since the motel was built possibly 40 years ago. The shower lacked any water pressure and as a result all you could do is have a farm wash. The bed had an old heavy mattress and the bed base made a strange creaking noise every time I moved. The walls are paper thin. Not good when you could hear the guy next door using the toilet or when the prostitute came calling. The photos shown on TripAdvisor are not an accurate representation of this motel.

We booked this by accident thinking it was the other Abbotts in Hamilton. Awfully rude staff. Hadnt even got through the door and the rudeness ensued. Very run down and dirty. We got a refund immediately and drove to Auckland. Definitely wouldn't recommend staying here ever

This was booked for me and unfortunately no local alternatives were available otherwise I would have left. This motel does the motel industry in Hamilton no good at all. Dated in every respect. Scruffy reception staff with poor English. Terrible dated bathroom and kitchen which have had no attention or TLC since the 70s. Although it was March there was no heating in evidence in the room. No air con. No Sky. "Owner say cannot afford". So why was I charged $169 for the Saturday of my stay. Clearly price gouging is on the agenda as normal rates appear much lower.

JOKE OF A PLACE We were greeted by 1 very nice polite women and another women whom didn’t even acknowledge us being there. No hello no welcome just WHAT ROOM YOU LOOKING FOR! Yolanda is your name and your a pathetic women in the wrong bloody business! Customer service? What a joke Yolanda. calling the police. just to have 10 police officers wasting there time to come down and see nothing wrong with anything we were doing. Why weren’t we arrested? Why were we able to stay? Why did we get our bond back? Why does another man (stranger) complain about service and get police called on him? And everyone let go? Because Yolanda, your own service is pathetic and I’m guessing you are one of the managers or owners! How sad. Consider a new job because customer service is not where humans like you should be! Oh and don’t forget Yolanda you called us racist! For what? Who even says that!? Not one time did we mention any body’s race. Not one time! What a joke. We got to see You And your staff play that card too many times on too many different people and it was only one night, imagine how many other times you racially play the victim. Literally like begging to be realeased from prison. PATHETIC

The rates are a bit of a joke, if it was 60 a night, you'd get what you pay for and your expectations would be in line with what you spent. A low budget motel, covering the basics. Bed and a roof for the night. But their rates don't prepare you for a half-assed motel room, yes dated and crap beds as per other reviews on here, but cobwebs everywhere and chipped bathtub did not entice. And if you're a fan of cockroaches and ants you'll be pleasantly surprised when they start rocking up late at night! Party on! Go somewhere else if you're spending in that price range. Plenty of places that are worth the money. 🙂

There are some nice motels around Hamilton, do yourself a favour pay a few more dollars and stay somewhere a lot nicer. We booked into a room as our teenage son was having an operation at Waikato Hospital. He was discharged earlier than expected and we wanted him close to us so we could monitor him overnight. Management wanted to charge us an extra $60 to put a camp stretcher in the room and supply sheets!! Their compassion is zero as is their customer service. All they could see was $$$$. The rooms are shabby, outdated, cracks all up the walls and the photos on the website make the rooms look a lot more appealing than they actually are. Definitely never coming back!! If I could put a minus 10 as a rating I would!!
