We arrived to a lovely welcoming greeting from the 2 owners of this well-appointed Motor Lodge. Room 10 appeared to be great, all clean and well maintained etc. But we soon discovered it was extremely noisy at night, with light flashing as cars on the main road passed by. We were told in the morning by the lovely owner that this is usually the last room they let out as it is the noisiest - we had booked months prior, but of course Expedia had only booked it the week before! Hence, we ended up with the worst room in the best motel. The location is great with just a short walk down to the beach. Would recommend coming here, but definitely not to room 10.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. It is so much easier for you to telephone us for your reservation as we can then discuss your wants and needs.
The price in number 10 reflects any inconvenience from the road noise. It is such a popular beach and of course most motels are on the main road.
Pleasing to hear you enjoyed your time with us here at Ocean Beach Motor Lodge.
Best regards
Ruth

They went out of their way to make our stay a great one. The unit was clean and tidy and everything worked well. Once they knew we needed a softer bed it was attended to. Close to a beautiful beach and lots of Sky channels.

A great pet friendly motel a short distance from fabulous Wainui Beach. Very welcoming hosts, and nice big room - including spa bath - and private outside area. Genuinely pet friendly & our wee pooch was allowed into the unit with us (nice big paddock at back of motel where the dog could have a good sniff). Good selection of tv channels. When we stayed here there was a pizza cart operating in the motel car park - absolutely fantastic pizzas.

A little pricey but good wifi tv and a bed that suited me. Pet friendly so I had my dog along. The suite is huge with tv in bedroom and living area. Bench top job etc. Good toilets. Clean and tidy . With a late checkout a bonus.

Thank you Warren for taking the time to review us here at Ocean Beach, Wainui.
You are quite right, our suites are large, in fact they are the largest in Gisborne and so beautifully equipped.
Accommodating your beautiful little dog was a pleasure. We are happy to allow a late checkout if it is possible. We aim to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.
Again, thank you for taking the time to review us, it is appreciated.
You're welcome back anytime.
Best regards
Ruth
