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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Don’t let the price of this place and the nice photos they put up temp you into staying at this dump. The rooms are horrid they are smaller than a sardine can. This beds are terrible and the rooms are filthy. This place needs to be condemned. It’s truly amazing that the district council has not shut it down yet.

Have been staying here for over 20 years. Unfortunately the place has been on the decline the past 2 years. The manager was rude and unreasonable. I’d sooner sleep in my car before staying here again.

I booked a room several months ago so we would have accommodation to see our daughter graduate from Massey University. However the motor lodge decided to cancel our booking the Wednesday prior to our arrival so they could up sell our room, leaving our family without accommodation. After phoning the motor lodge about the cancellation, I was told it was due to who we booked through even though the email states clearly it was the motor lodge and the room was already on sold. It was clear on the paperwork who cancelled the room. So disappointed that a business would do this to customers putting profit first especially on such an important occasion.

Palmerston North is blessed with a load of Motels and Hotels, ranging from the Absolute Dire, to Really, Really good. Aspree Motor Inn is the pick of the bunch. Fastidiously Clean and functional rooms, epic Customer Service and an awesome location. Even whilst being on the Main Drag, the rooms are quiet and afford a decent night's rest. We have our Drivers staying here at least once a week for a while now, and they do not like staying anywhere but the Aspree. Fantastic parking around the back allows easy access for Trucks and Trailers. It's location in proximity to Supermarkets and Restaurants really cannot be beat. The Nightly Rates are extremely good value for money. We really appreciate our Drivers being able to stay in such Clean and Comfortable rooms while they are away from their families. Keep up the amazing work Aspree Team!

Stayed in November. Will never again! Room wreaked of cigarette. We left the doors and windows opened for 5 hours and still stunk, was sickening. Pillow stunk like marijuana. We told the receptionist who said she knew it stunk yet still gave us the room and some air freshener. She confirmed someone had lived there for weeks in that room smoking and the owners still sold us that room. We were offered another room however it was too small to accommodate our visitors for the afternoon. We asked to speak to the owners, we rung 4 times after leaving to speak to them however they refused to contact us back, to hear our concerns, care about our experience or give us a refund. The constant stink cigarette smell was so strong and sickening, could smell it the entire time we were there and all night sleeping. This is disgusting service. Never stay here.

A no frills unit in easy walking distance to town. The caretaker was friendly and kind. The bed was comfortable and the shower water pressure was good. It is right next to Main st, which attracts boy racer cars late into the evening and a lot of trucks early in the morning. If you're a light sleeper maybe ask for a unit as far from the road as possible. I happened to have the unit next to the one picnic table in the car park, which was consistently used by smokers and the cigarette smell wafted around my door. But otherwise good value.

The staff were fantastic, the room was beautiful, and it may sound trivial, but the tea and coffee supplies were very high quality. And you got real milk in a cute wee bottle from reception. They took really good care of us, and I totally recommend staying here. It's close to town, and practically next door to Dominos, who I imagine walk their deliveries :)
