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.

Family who runs it tried to be very helpful, given we were dumped on them at the last minute by their uncle, owner of Dave Parker's Eco Lodge. But the units are basic and the location is not good. It is on the main road to Apia, with very loud traffic noise 5am - 10:30pm. No pool and the common room is shared with the family, so a little awkward.

We were only staying in Apia for one night and needed somewhere to crash after an early morning arrival. Travelling on a budget, we found Valentine Motel and were so glad we did. The rooms were exceptionally clean, with fresh linen and fluffy towels. The room was small but all you need with a private bathroom/shower. The communal area was spacious and clean, with an 8ball table, kitchen (coffee and tea on the house), tv and an amazing garden to look out at. Only a short walk to centre of Apia. It was like staying in a family home which we loved.

Wonderful host Queenie cooks the best eggs for the included breakfast. Valentines is also home to a family. They are lovely, but it can feel a little awkward passing through their lounge room! However, it is clean, bright and reasonably priced. Our favourite in Apia.

Stayed two nights at Valentines Motel before flying early in the morning from Samoa. Valentines Motel is a good value,friendly, family run motel, situated within walking distance to Apia township. The main market is a very short walk away, as are two well-stocked supermarkets. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you enter the 'lobby.' The 'lobby' is the main entrance into -not only the motel, but the owner's home as well. The kitchen is always available if you wish to make a hot drink or a snack for yourself. A standard bedroom with a powerful fan circulating cool air. The toilet is on the same floor as the bedrooms but the bathroom- shower facilities are on the ground floor. The colourful garden at the back of the house offers a quiet, peaceful and restful space to sit outside. Valentines Motel is a homely and inviting place to stay while in Apia.

The place is reasonably priced, clean and located within walking distance to the city. Good breakfast is served. Only disappointment is that the bathrooms are downstairs, and the rooms upstairs. Not a big issue though.

The staff there is really careful and smily.the rooms are very clean and the fan or a/c is a plus when it s getting really warm and humid. Despite it s close location to the center, the back garden offers calm and beauty in a pointless city. The cinema is not to far

The best choice in Apia to stay low budget and inexpensive. The owners are friendly. We liked the place that much, that we stayed again when we came back to Apia. It is only a short walk to Apia's city center.

We stayed one night at Valentines Motel before taking a flight from Fagalili Airport to Pago Pago. It served our purposes well. The bus from the Mulifanua (Savai'i) ferry (3 tala each) dropped us off at the door and the taxi to the airport was 12 tala for a 15 minute journey. Good location with fruit/vege market close by (being rebuilt) and also two supermarkets, about 5 minute walk, and another 5 to Downtown Apia. Functions both as a motel and a backpackers, we had a double room with shared facilities which were clean and adequate. Staff were friendly and helpful. Local dogs and cockerels announce the day well before dawn. We were happy with the 78 tala price for the room including tropical breakfast.
