The Tudor Motor Lodge is an older style motel, situated 7 mins walking distance of Hamilton CBD, 10 mins walk to hospital and clinics and close to 2 major supermarkets. Our units, though not modern, are clean, tidy and affordable. We have special rates for groups and extended stays. We are pet friendly and allow well behaved pets to stay with you in your unit. We are currently in the process of upgrading and hope to have completed all units by Jan 2012

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.

Luckily I read reviews before staying there so I was prepared for the worst. I didn't book it myself. I notice they say the rooms are refurbished, but ours wasn't. Having a low expectation helped. You could take your own towels, tea towels, fly spray and disinfectant wipes, as I did. I was glad I did. I can only go by my own experience but it is a basic, budget motel and it was adequate. Other motels in the area charge a lot more. I did find the staff very pleasant and helpful, but maybe they don't read the reviews, which is a pity. A bit more effort would go a long way. I would rather not stay there again but if I had to, I would take my own gear again. Just don't expect much and you can't be disappointed.

I am a motel cleaner myself and was satisfied with the room, lovely couple who cleans the rooms themselves so really have to give it to them for their service as well as the state of the rooms, they do great for what they have, my son and I stayed in room 28 which is upstairs, 1 bedroom with a queen bed, room has all the basics you need, stove top but no oven, the next night we were lucky to be rebooked In as we didn’t have to stay in the hospital and we got room 32 which is downstairs and had a separate bedroom with a queen bed and 2 singles in the main area. Shower pressure was great in both rooms, towels and rubbish gets left out the door and is replaced. Wifi was good.

We have stayed twice in the last 2 months due to hospital appointments both times have been a terrible stay the rooms are not well cleaned we found mold in the bathroom around the windows and shower floor. Dust over wire covers. grease and grime in the kitchen. rust in the microwave. We found blood on the wall near the TV power point The pool looked like it had not been cleaned in months. These rooms are meant to be disinfected after each time the room is vacated Due to Covid.

Two nternal doors would not shut without jamming, and the third, the toilet / shower was not able to be closed within the frame. The electric jug leaked water out of its base. The dining table was very wobbly.

Old but good. Refurbished where needed. Spacious rooms. Good value, budget friendly. Excellent staff service. Stayed here to see a Show at nearby Theatre. Great location, easy walk to both theatre and restaurants. Winter stay, so heat pump (quiet) much appreciated.

We chose this motel for its location. This motel room and ensuite size were fine. The owner, who was quite friendly, did arrange a room on the bottom, so we did not have to undergo the stairs. The room was clean enough. There was no hand soap in the dispenser, so we had to get it each time from the dispenser in the shower. When we came to cook breakfast however there was very minimum equipment. The two plates were very big, with no other option. Two knives, two forks, one teaspoon. There are better and cheaper Hamilton motels available - we will not be going back. This place is over-priced!

I’m guessing the rooms were recently made over. I booked this place before reading the “tired motel” reviews and was a little apprehensive but I needn’t have worried. Our room 24 greeted us with the smell of fresh new carpet. Fresh paint job too I would think. Large kitchen, great shower with contemporary fittings. Great location, only a short walk into town. Great value too so give it a go!

.Budget friendly motel. Yes a little bit tired but clean and dry warm . Good clean bedding, linen etc. Is good location, Has heat pumps in each room and tvs. Only odd thing is lack of toiletrys. There is a combined body wash shampoo pump in shower but none on hand basin. Odd. Recommend for short stay , especially overnights.

This motel is an older style motel but in a good location just on the outskirts of Hamilton. It is about 2 blocks from Pac N Save supermarket and about 4 blocks from the CBD. The motel room was a good size and had a well equipped kitchen. The receptionist was really nice and showed us to our room when we arrived. We were on the ground floor of the 2 storey building. We used Hamilton as a base for a few days visit Taupo, Tauranga and Matamata (to visit Hobbiton). There a lot of good shops to visit in the CBD and we took time out to visit the botanical gardens. We will stay here again when we return to Hamilton in the future.
