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!
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.
We had a perfect stay at this motel! Booked last minute and amazing value for the price!! Perfectly clean, large rooms (high ceiling in bedroom) with great privacy and black out blinds, sky tv and wifi great. Large comfy bed. Double glazing and sound proof!! Well stocked kitchenette for light meals and drinks. Nice toiletries. everything is new, clean and quality!! . It’s obvious the owners take pride in their motel with their friendly service and immaculate facilities. 10/10 would recommend to anyone staying in Bay of Plenty!
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.
