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.

The hosts Shelly and Steve Blomfield allowed us to check in early ,the parking area was suitable for our needs Plus as we wanted to leave the car at the motel after we had checked out for three hours . Not a problem . our room had a comfortable double bed plus a single .the kitchen had a microwave plus a small bench top oven .The Bathroom possibly could have had a hand rail near the shower to aid older people safety, security .

This property is under new management,thank goodness. New owners are doing everything they can to make our stay as comfortable as possible and in very short time. New crisp linens, a great bonus, as is the new smart TV and cook top. The location is great and Shelly and Steve are just lovely hosts.

An older style motel that is an easy 15 min walk to town. The unit was very clean. It had a seperate double bed room and a lounge/dining kitchenette with 2 single beds. A modernised bathroom. Well worth looking at if you want a nice tidy motel at a good price. Friendly staff too.

Clean establishment with satisfactory service. But the so-called non-smoking room absolutely sunk of cigarette smoking. Kid playing in courtyard was ok but they weren’t supervised and kicked the ball into our windows on numerous occasions. Avoid this place.

Old style motel with small TV, picture attached, no satellite channels, small uncomfortable couch for 2 people, picture attached. Even though the unit can sleep up to four people, only two people could sit on the one piece of furniture. In the bedroom, bed side drawers don't close properly. Frying pan needed to be thrown out, teflon scratched and stove old and chipped. The electric jug was the worst disgrace of all, photo attached

This is our 3rd stay at this motel, last two in motel 6 which has been refurbished and we are very happy with it other than the guests in the next door unit. Lady yelling at kids early hours of the morning ( before midnight and latest time at 4/43am ). Also a very noisey Ute in and out of car-park not only late at night but also very early on the Saturday morning revving its engine constantly. The guys in this vehicle did not appear to be staying in any of the motels. Our unit was very clean, lady cleaner was lovely and helpful.

Lovely host but very basic unit. Bathroom good. Bed ok but decor a bit dowdy and dark. Needs power points with more height. Outside could have a water blast as outdoor seating not that pleasant. Comfy couch. Fridge noisy.

Stick to the agreement or advise your client if they are to change in case they wish to find somewhere else. Provide the basics so that someone staying can at least have a shower and find the supplies to hand.

Responded 21 Feb 2017
Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. We are sorry to hear your stay with us wasn't as pleasant we hoped it would be for you. We do provide body wash in the shower and hand wash over the hand basin for your use. I am sorry if you found that not satisfactory, but we always take on board any comments made by our guests to look for ways of improving. We are also sorry you were not happy with the change in room due to the parking, however, we did provide parking for both cars for you, with very little disturbance to you. We look forward to you staying with us in the furture. Regards Gayle

Beautifully clean unit, love the power of the shower - it is like having a massage, great for aching muscles. Very friendly, helpful people and great handy location. Totally recommend the Fiesta Motel, Wanganui.
