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.

Because we were travelling with our little rescue dog I booked in advance with the manager Bill. He was very helpful and obliging. The check in on our arrival was also very quick and simple. The motel room was very clean, large, with a TV in the bedroom as well as the lounge. the complex had a swimming pool, spar pool, plus a small secure playground for children. We have travelled the world extensively for many years therefore I have no hesitation in recommending this home away from home. Its location near to Highway 2 / Kennedy Road makes it very easy to get to the many attractions Napier has to offer.

We stayed for our New Year trip to Napier with multiple families. The rooms aren't modern but clean, and I can see the owner do make sure the place is great. The motel is close to the motorway but surprisingly I cannot hear the traffic. Possibly the best wifi I ever experienced in any motel. The owner and staff are very friendly, do go and ask for advice, as they know Napier and Hastings really well.

I come to Taradale regularly to visit an elderly relative in a care home. This time I stayed one night at the Ace High Motel. The owners are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are well priced, spacious and spotlessly clean. The wifi is strong and reliable and the kitchenette is well equipped. I will stay here again. Recommended.

Contrary to photographs shown online, this is a rather tired, worn out and depreciated property, well overdue for a birthday upgrade.
My wife posted some honest feedback on booking.com, and nearly a week after we stayed there they retaliated by charging my credit card $70- without authorisation, ostensibly for a damaged pot, without any evidence, before or after photos. (We have not damaged any pots, and they had no pots worth $70- anyway).
Stay away.

our terms and conditions state any breakage or damage will be charged to the guest in this instance stainless steel pots were heated so badly they turned blue and our staff spent time everyday for 4 days trying to recover the pots, as this failed we charged the guests credit card $69.95 the cost of replacement not the cost of replacing the full set which would have been $149.00 you cannot damage items in the unit and not be responsible

Friendly, welcoming staff. Tidy accommodation, recently refurbished. Nice little pool to cool off in the Napier heat. Off street parking. Near main road but little traffic noise. Short drive to supermarket and main town centre.

We stayed at Ace High for 3 weeks and the owners were wonderful. Beth goes above and beyond. Room was clean and tidy and serviced well each day. Pool was clean and barbeques available for your use.
Most comfortable bed I've slept in at a motel. Laundry facilities were great. Big machine and very cheap to use. I would definitely recommend this motel

Maybe don't select this inn if you're looking to impress a lady friend but if it's practicality you're looking for and you have transport then it's probably got what you're looking for. It was comfortable, with the usual tacky decorations that only a motor inn can provide. That said, there is free unlimited wifi which is enough to distract me from just about any amount of bad floral wallpaper - gets my vote anytime!

The pricing was reasonable and the unit we had included 2 singles and a queen bed, (with the queen in a separate room and a TV in each area) and a well equipped kitchenette. The owner was friendly enough and was available when needed, there is also a (very) small pool on site if you feel so inclined and breakfast is available for a little extra.

I 100% recommend this motel to stay at if you're on a short holiday or spending a weekend it Napier. I stayed there with my family for the Afghanistan and New Zealand World Cup match. It is very home like and the rooms are kept in amazing condition, if felt like I was at my own home! Very friendly an helpful owners as well. This isn't too pricey as well so it's the perfect place to stay! It even has a pool and spa and bikes for hire if you want to ride them when you're there. Overall would totally stay there again and very happy with Owners and the place. Thankyou lovely owners!

It's your average Kiwi motor inn: tired, very 1970s without hot/cold mixers in the sink, etc, but roomy, neat and tidy. The environs are quiet, being in a residential zone outside Napier's CBD. There's ample parking, a small swimming pool and the best thing is free wifi without any data limits, which was reasonably fast. Good option for a basic stay without frills. You have to drive into town for everything as there are no shops around. Basic but comfortable, quiet and unpretentious.
