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.

Very friendly owners/staff. Extremely clean and spacious one-bedroom unit. Kitchen area was well equipped. Property is older but has been renovated and seems well cared for. Wish there was a gym, but understand that’s unlikely at this level. Other than that, I would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others overnighting in town.

This is more than a motel! Beautiful suite of rooms with luxury spa bath. Large screen tv in sitting room and another in the bedroom all equipped with sky and Netflix meant we could enjoy the final of the Australian open tennis in luxury! Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Congratulations you have thought of everything. Highly recommend this place and will definitely return if ever in the area again

Such a lovely place to stay. Clean, tidy and welcoming. The rooms are immaculately presented and contain everything you need. The Nespresso machines are a lovely touch and the beds are super comfy. A very welcoming and centrally located place to stay. Highly recommend.

Immaculately presented & clean, best motel I’ve ever stayed in. Extremely comfortable huge bed, crisp clean sheets, excellent pillows. Room was warm on arrival. Lounge/kitchen, bedroom, ensuite all big & well appointed. Heater & tv in both lounge and also bedroom. No brainer choice if staying in Palmerston North.

We stayed in upstairs studio room. It had everything we needed. A nice kitchen, big bathroom and lounge. The king size bed was very comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean and the staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend the Hacienda Motor Lodge.

Conveniently located close to Massey University, this motel offers clean, quiet, and reasonably priced accommodation with off-street parking, smack in the middle of this busy city. The receptionist was kind enough to direct us to the Golden Time restaurant on Main Street, just a short walk away, where we had a superb Chinese meal. Note that most of the other diners seemed to be from the university, and most were Chinese. The motel rooms were spacious, and offered a choice of both kingsize and twin beds. Good value.

Stayed here on an island trip as we left our previous hotel in Napier early it is exceptional. 2 bedrooms with a full kitchen with all that you would need to cook a family need, dining table, chairs, settee and chair. Everything was spotless. On arrival there is milk and water in the fridge. There is instant coffee, coffee pods and fresh coffee for a plunger various teas also. Plenty of bedding and towels and toiletries in the bathroom. Chocolate bars on the beds and sweets too. Free washing machine with the powder $4 for the dryer but you get ages for your money. Short walk to restaurants and shops but most close at around 9pm. Couldn’t fault this place absolutely brilliant Young lad on reception couldn’t have been more helpful and was very friendly. Well done Hacienda. Would certainty recommend this motel a job well done!

Stayed one night here in a two bedroom unit. Was made to feel very welcome on arrival and the unit was spotlessly clean with the added touch of chocolates beside the bed. Comfortable beds and off street parking with a lovely restaurant almost next door.

We stayed in some of the group rooms at this motel with 4 beds and a foldout couch. The motel is well located and very clean. Great selection of tea and coffee which always makes a difference. The beds were comfortable and heaters were provided to stay plenty warm. Worth the slight premium price for such quality.

A delightfully warm hello and welcome when I arrived signalled the start of a very comfortable stay. The room had all the amenities expected and some, it was super clean, the bed was very comfortable with great pillow, the shower had excellent pressure and the room was warm. Close by were a range of great eateries. When I checked in restaurants were recommended and a booking was made on my behalf. Great choice. Highly recommend if you want genuine kiwi hospitality and a warm and comfortable accommodation close the city centre. A true super star experience.
