The place is terrible and is a good example of why you should read previous reviews. Used for public housing, there were parties, dogs and rubbish everywhere. Owner never mentioned this and I found myself barricading the door at 3am to at least feel safe. Don't stay here.

The room itself was dated but the cleaners did a good job. Repairs in the room were rubbish, things held together with duct tape etc. Clearly the owners spend nothing maintaining the place. Once outside the room things got worse. Absolutely filthy outside, rubbish everywhere, vomit on the stairwell and carpark. Lots of families being housed in motel for housing new zealand, screaming, fighting and yelling at each other all through the night. Kids everywhere getting yelled at. Parties in the rooms till 2-3am. The owners do nothing about controlling noise. They also have dogs barking in motel. Only stay at AAA Northlands if you want a taste of living in a ghetto.

I stayed here with my elderly mother-in-law, I requested the wheelchair accessible room as she cannot get about to well. It is a basic hotel room, we had everything we needed, heater worked well as temps over night were very frosty. It is a basic 3 ⭐, The decor is dated, but was excellent value for money, cheapest I could find. Great location, room was quiet (no road noise). Excellent shower, brilliant pressure and hot! Best part of our stay.

I was here for a few days. To get food nearby had to walk around 15 to 20 minutes to get a below class restaurant. and opens maybe after 11 am or some days evening. The room is just basic. But still, that part is fine.

This motel was cheap and accepts pets. The heater worked well, the bed was comfortable and the shower was good. I would like to suggest to the owners/ managers that they put more equipment in the kitchen ( no bread knife for example); fix the broken light above the bed; and supply some of the stuff that they make people go to the office for, like blankets. I found the duvet too warm but there was no alternative. Sorting those few things would make staying here far more pleasant. I was close to the front but had no issues with traffic noise even though it was the weekend.
