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.

We stayed for one night on business before our flight to Wellington and visit to Wharekauhau Estate (which to be honest is at the complete other end of the luxury spectrum).

The room itself was clean and functional, but pretty basic. The bed was too soft (although we're used to sleeping on a futon) and there were no tissues in the room. There's free on-site car parking (one per room) but the spaces are quite tight with most of them angled.

Overall we felt it was a bit pricey at NZD$140 for the night (via an accommodation aggrigator site) but the location is good and it's close to supermarkets, Manukau shopping centre and Good English Roasts for a quick NZ lamb roast dinner.

The pillows were hard, but the room was spacious and the water pressure strong. The wi-fi kept dropping out and the car parks were narrow and difficult to get in and out of as well as hard to exit your car. The rooms were clean thanks to a great housekeeping team. The air freshener used to spray the room left a strong scent that lasted for a few days and was too much. The Lodge is a good location close to everything such as restaurants and supermarkets all within walking distance and the airport is a 15-minute drive. The toilet paper was a cheap budget type as it was so thin more like the kind you would find in a backpacker. The cost of the room was a little high, but I guess you are paying for the location.

Just a short walking distance to the Manukau Mall, McDonalds, Wendy's, Subway, Burger Fuel, Countdown and Pak'N'Save.
We intended to stay for a short period, but a medical issue arose and the receptionist rearranged other bookings to make sure we could stay in the same room.
The staff, including the cleaners were very friendly.

The only reason I gave a 4 rather than higher was that WiFi was hit and miss

The location of this motel is quite good, not too far from the airport and walking distance to Westfield. There is on site parking.
The one bedroom room was quite good with modern kitchenette however the sofa was so sunken that without a cushion under you you were sitting on the frame. The sofa was also quite stained.

Awesome place to stay. Super friendly staff including cleaners. Pool was great and loved our room. Met all our needs. Shopping within walking distance which was great. The only thing missing was air conditioning although there was a ceiling and stand alone fan it was still quite hot. Overall though it was a very pleasant experience.

It is summer in Auckland and we did not realise that the motel does not have aircon in the room. It was so hot in the room.

The fan available in the room is so weak. The wifi during peak hours is useless.
The TV remote does not work properly.
On the positive note, the room is claen.

A great location close to the Shopping Center and Movie Theatre.
Everything we needed for a relaxing overnight stay. Comfortable bed and very clean. A short distance from the Bus Station. 20 minute walk.

If you want to be close to the airport and don't want/need to be in the city, then I can highly recommend this motor lodge. Although it is situated on the Great South Road, the units are very quiet and are gradually being refurbished by the owners, Neil and Gaynor who are very friendly, helpful and informative with what to do locally. We had a refurbished 1 bedroom unit for 2 nights before flying out and we wanted for nothing. The unit was large and there was a very comfortable settee in the living room, ditto the bed. Everything was clean and immaculate. If you want to go into Auckland it is only about 15 minutes drive on the Motorway and the airport is about a 10 minute drive.

*We replied this question twice but Trip advisor did not post our answers so hopefully this one shows* Hello there, Thanks for choosing Manukau Motor Lodge in Manukau city. Villa maria Winery is 20 mins from our motel and It would be closer if you book the hotel room in Airport area, Mangare. However you are welcome to stay with us and if you are looking for sitter service, you can contact us for more details. Kind regards Tony
