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.

Interesting. Rooms are older but serviceable. Clean but a older weird smell.

Appears to be a lot of permanent residents in the small complex which leads to some interesting residents and aromas from some units.

Managers are very friendly and helpful and make the motel a better standard then it would be otherwise.

Onsite laundry $2 for washer and dryer. Large fenced area if you have kids that need to run around (with a lot of permanent resident kids...)

10 minutes to airport so great location for that and motel does $10 transfers which is a great price

We stayed here overnight while waiting for a flight to Australia. Was absolutely perfect for what we needed. 1 double and 3 single beds, kitchen, bathroom, heaters, fan, tv and great wifi. Friendly service and the shuttle from airport and back - 👍. I would absolutely stay here again in transit. It is a bit dated but that had no impact on our stay.

The service was good and it is fine for an overnight stay. Ringing for the shuttle was a problem as we couldnt connect using the phones at the visitor centre (which was closed at night) as they did not leave a short number that would work from those phones. Fortunately the lady at the hire car place directly opposite rang the full number that we had for us, otherwise it would probably have been a 10 to 20 dollar cab fare. It is very old school though with an almost hobbit sized shower.

Booked the motel to stay overnight to catch an early flight to the GC.
I thought the room was clean and tidy. Bed was comfy and the unit had everything I needed.
The hotel was busy during the day but by 7pm very quiet. The hotel is being used for emergency accommodation but only a few rooms are being used.
I stayed on my own and felt safe there.
The shuttles to and from the airport ran when you needed. I felt the drivers were very conscientious in making sure they got you there on time and there was only a very short wait to get picked up.
I left my car there free for the week. There were no problems. I would stay here again.

Horrible customer Service.
I booked a hotel for my mum travelling from my hometown hoping for the pick up at the airport as per the request. They never informed me the change of pick up point. Imagine an elderly person need to stay whole night in the airport with no new Zealand cash to go since the money exchange was closed, no communication skill. At 2AM, I was anxious worried about her pick up because she couldn't speak English. The receptionist on phone was very rude sending the pick up time and gate at the last hour. At 2am they would like her to walk all the way down. When I spoke on call they told me they will give me gate number and she would meet their but I received a long message afterward stating the change in pick up point. I had to call them to get a payment and sustain the booking. From the start they were very rude on phone as well.

Imagine being in a situation anxious at night and speaking very very rude to the customer. No sense of being polite and understanding. I myself work in a hotel and we always want to at least help. Screwing up $175 I would have book channel hotel I work with but the only reason I booked her was shuttle pick up ad drop off which was experience by myself last time.
No matter which ranking hotel/ motel you stay, we should always understand the customer prospect of need. Very very rude receptionist. Extremely poor.

Pathetic; very pathetic.
Waste of money and horrible customer service.

Fabulous location close to airport
Motel older but very clean and roomy.
Able to leave car for a few days if heading away. Transfers to and from airport included in the very reasonable price.
Friendly reliable staff. We will definitely stay again.

Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Loved the hospitality of the staff. Overall, worth the cost. 😊 I was abit scared while I was there by myself, and the staff knocked the door to double check for the towels. It was scary by myself while I was in deep sleep after long international flight but it's best place to be with family.

I have noticed a few bad reviews on this place but i travel alot and i was happy with my stay here. Yes the room was getting a little dated but it was clean and tidy. Presented well. The shower was amazing the pool was stunning. And the owner super friendly. He happily transported us to and from the airport. And keep in mind this place does not cost and arm and a leg. I will certainly be back

We had booked in for night ,catching early flight next morning. Most of the units were occupied by permanent residents. Were going to leave car there while away but it did not feel secure at all to leave it.. Loud music from unit next door. Ended up walking out of motel, there was not a good vibe. Would not recommend

My family and I stayed here in April 2014 and woke to terrible itching and things crawling all over us. The motel unit we were in was INFESTED WITH FLEAS!! We did not sleep a wink! The owner took us to the airport very early (4.30am) and I explained to him that the room was infested with fleas. He initially pretended not to know what I was talking about, so I took him inside ad showed him the dead fleas we had left on the sink in the bathroom. Later that day I counted OVER 50 FLEA BITES on me alone (and more on my kids!)

Because we were flying out i did not have time to ask for a refund, but as we had stored our car there, I knew I would be back again at the end of our trip. When we returned, I asked for a full refund (the room cost us $140) and he offered me $40!!! I declined and asked for a full refund. He said (after much arguing) that he would give me a full refund if I signed something that said I would not write any online reviews!!!!! WHHAAATTTTTT???? Naturally I declined and he would not refund ANYTHING! I will be taking this further!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!
