This motel ticked the most important 3 boxes for us. It was clean and well maintained in spite of its age. The owners were very friendly and willing to help, and the beds were very comfortable. It is a few minutes drive out of Taumaranui, and for that reason we had a lot of trouble finding it as we kept driving up and down the main street of town, only to find its a few kms out of town.

Older motel but very clean and tidy. New owners gradually upgrading. Close to main road but traffic noise not a problem. Lovely spacious grounds. Pet (dog) friendly.
Quiet country setting. Warm, comfortable units. Highly recommended.

If you're looking for cheap, super clean accommodation with great service this is the place to be. No need to travel any further for food either. Dinner was great with generous portions and the beer was perfectly cold. Some truck noise but after all you're on a highway so to be expected. It's not the Hyatt but it's as clean as! Would definitely stay again.

Tired accommodation, old furniture, crockery and cutlery. No coffee plunger.
No wifi connection.
Good point fresh clean bedding.
Because of it being next to the main road and railway, truck and freight trains throughout the night do not allow a good nights sleep!
Disappointing stay.

Planned a family trip to Taupo but was too late to find accommodation so Mahoe hotel was the closest we could get at the time.

Here are some good points of this hotel:
1. Very tidy and clean.
2. Since it is in the middle of nowhere and quite isolated so it is very quiet.
3. Not only this was the closest at the time this was the cheapest at the time too.

But there are some drawbacks too:
1. Even though it was very quiet in the day time, there were trucks running in high speed during the night. Since this motel is right next to the road it could be loud and get very annoyed. By the way, there is a huge cemetery just right across the road so be aware if this is something you would mind.
2. Very clean in general as long as you don't open windows. We didn't bother to turn on the air-con and open the windows in the toilet instead to get better ventilation. There were over 20 of those long legs mosquitos and moths combined sitting on the toilet floor and in the shower. This happened both nights so I think this is a constant problem.
3. It took us about 1.5 hour one way to the Taupo centre so it is about 3 hours back and forth. It's just too far for us. However as I said this hotel is sort of situated in the middle of nowhere if this is something you want then it will be a upside for you.

We had good experiences and I would recommend this to my friends.
