One88 on commerce is a motel run by a passionate couple who want to assure that their guests enjoy the best possible experience. We were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness not to mention how spacious and nicely decorated the unit was. They clearly invested to guarantee a good night sleep as the sound proofing is exceptional. Whilst the motel was fully booked, we did not hear the slightest sound of neighboring units. This motels excels on every level and that can be fully linked to the lovely manager and his wife who go the extra mile with a smile!

Dear Charlotte D, Thank you for taking the time to review One88 on Commerce Motel in Whakatane, it is always encouraging to hear that our Guests are liking what they are getting here in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Our Housekeeping Staff are truly amazing as they keep producing a quality performance every time they pull on their Blue One88 on Commerce uniform, no wonder they wear it proudly, they are a first class crew. Liz cross checks every room prior to a Guest setting foot in them just to ensure they are presented to the highest level possible. The 3rd key part of the process here at One88 on Commerce is the Cusatomer Service side which comes very easilly when you have supreme confidence in your property and product. Hopefully, we will become your go to when ever you are in the Whakatane area. Kind regards Liz and Malcolm Motel Managers

This Motel passed with high marks for me and I am a VERY fussy person. On arrival (even in the rain) the outside was appealing with lots of spacious parking. We were on the top level, and Malcom (who also has a good sense of humor) was the perfect host showing us throughout our spacious unit on arrival. Lounge, dining, kitchen open plan which was light & bright because of the large dble glazed ranch sliders that looked ot over towards the bush. There were net curtains as well as block out curtains. The place looked and smelt clean. There was free excellent wifi and netflicks. The bedroom at the back was big with large windows a wardrobe with coat hangers and a huge bed with side tables with drawers and lamps. The en suite was off to the side. This was very open with a good walk in glass shower, heated towel rails, nice fluffy towels, (with extra underneath) which were changed daily on our 3 day stay. Nice big vanity and mirror with plenty of complementary toiletries . Our dining table had a wobble due to the base not being on properly. Malcom fixed it in a flash, wishing all his guests would report problems for him to attend to. There was also a laundry on the ground floor with washing machine & dryer at a small price of $5.00 which included the soap power. Supermaket a 5 min walk away and plenty of restaurants a 3 min drive away in town. Outside below, there is a BBQ area that is closed in and safe for children Malcom & Liz take pride in their job and it shows. Thank you for making our stay a comfortable one and we would certainly recommend your establishment to any one coming to Whakatane

Booking in was simple. Malcolm walked us through the unit. Malcolm was very thorough in explaining all details of the unit. We found the unit very spacious, well appointed and clean. Car park at the unit front sliding door. Being double glazed there was no road noise at all. Being centrally located it is a short walk to the center of Whakatane, shops and fast food outlets. If self catering is a choice the unit has all the facilities to cook. Microwave, cooktop, cutlery and crockery all supplied. The bathroom had complimentary hair shampoo, conditioner and soaps. The unit is well lit and has Multichannel TV. This motel is great value for the unit price. We highly recommend this as a place to stay. Without a doubt next visit we would stay at ONE88 On Commerce.

Dear tgngytn, Thank you for taking the time to review One88 on Commerce Motel in Whakatane, it is always a pleasure to hear that our Guests have enjoyed their time with us. The Block Out Curtains and the Superking Comfy Beds make for a great night's sleep, whilst the excellent Shower Pressure is the ideal way to wake yourselves up in the Morning. Our Housekeeping Staff do a wonderful job of keeping the Guest Suites looking spick and span, and Liz's Crosschecking of the rooms and preening them to look just right for our Guests certainly pays dividends when Guests comment on the room presentation. Friendly Service comes as part and parcel of the package here at One88 on Commerce, we are after all in the Hospitality Industry, and being Hospitable certainly has to be a top priority. We hope we catch you again the next time you are in the Whakatane area. Kind regards Liz and Malcolm Motel Managers

This has to be the best motel I have stayed in. The rooms are spacious and cleanliness is top notch. It’s next to a busy road but the rooms are very quiet and the outlook is onto a large bush covered hill so quite beautiful. The bed was large and comfortable - we stayed for three nights and had great sleeps. Excellent shower, bathroom and kitchen facilities. We highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
