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.

The beds here were very comfortable and the room was reasonably spacious. The breakfast was very nice and you had a choice of fruit, cereals and hot food. The lady who was taking care of everyone was lovely and she is a credit to the company. The hotel is very close to the main shopping area with the restaurants and bars. It is also a short walk to the lake where you can take a towel and have a swim. A very convenient location with lots to do around.

Hotel's Favourite
Very comfortable accommodation with garden access. Daily room service if you want to, all staff very friendly and happy to assist. We had ants in kitchen after 2 days and straightaway was resolved. Clean up immediately and sprayed. The next business day professional was spraying all around hotel. Happens. We are from Australia and we know that ants are normal and often it’s natural situation with easy fix. If you ever have situation like that please don’t blame owners. It’s nature. Rooms very clean, bathroom clean and fresh. Quiet around place. Walking distance to restaurants and local shops.

I am not sure why this place has so many bad reviews. We stayed for only 1 night and the place was VERY CLEAN and was a nice stay. The furniture is old but given the price and how clean the unit was, it was a great find for us. It came with a nice kitchen, a good size fridge and dishes and dishwashers. Parking was provided right in front of the unit.

Really run down. Oldest spa pool I have ever seen - paint flaking off it. Super expensive $316 a night for mediocre facilities. Disappointed. I guess the captive audience with the Taupo summer concert made them inflate their prices - shame to take advantage of guests like that.

Tired and run down motel where the irony of the name was not lost on us. Immediately after check in we had to call reception to come and clean (reclean?) the bathroom floor, shower base and toilet which were littered with thick black hairs. The bed was uncomfortable, the toilet button broken and overall was just really disappointing given the price. Good parking but so many better options nearby.

Excellent hotel in Taupo. Well equipped clean rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Plenty of parking. Fifteen minute walk to the town centre. Close to the mini golf. Recommended especially for families

I have reviewed this motel in the past and am reviewing it again because it has deteriorated in quality since our last stay; in spite of 'quality' being in its title. We had a one bedroom unit and we were so disappointed. The double bed was in the living area and it should have been in the bedroom. The TV and microwave were difficult to operate - gave up on the microwave. Instead found a portable 2 element electric plug in; like something you would use if you were camping - not that you would be able to plug it in! Picture attached. This appliance was balanced precariously on a very small bench and there I tried to poach an egg using a frying pan that was not fit for purpose - the non stick had come off in parts. Very unhealthy; picture attached. No hooks in the bathroom to hang your towel which was placed on a high shelf. Not good if you were short. I will not stay here again and I see that others are of the same opinion. At $215 a night this was poor value for money

Good Location, Clean room and good quality bath towels. Staff friendly Part of six and stayed in 2 rooms However both rooms are out! Carpet worn out and frayed. Double bed is a full size and the inter-spring mattress is terribly worn out. Sofa was covered with a small beach type blanket because it was very dirty and worn out Would not come back again. Recommend looking elsewhere

Wifi never worked in room.Rooms were pretty standard. Heather who managed the breakfast buffet was straight up racist and rude.We have been in NZ for 10 years and never faced such blatant racism. Not sure what ticked her off but from the first interaction to last over 2 days she was consistently rude. The male owner was also rude- overall stay was unwelcoming and super uncomfortable. Please do yourself a favour and avoid this place at all costs, just not worth it.Plenty of other stay options nearby.

We booked one night at the Acapulco Quality Inn in Taupo for 2 January 2023. On arrival we were given a dark corner unit with almost no natural light and no outlook of any kind. It felt like going into a cave. While the bathroom was fresh and clean and the bed was fine, the kitchen area was old and run down. Given we had paid $265.50 we were shocked by the standard of accommodation offered for that price, regardless of it being peak holiday season. Had we paid $165 we would have been disappointed but we would have accepted that was what our money had bought. However at $265 this was in no way value for money. We will not stay there again.
