Review of Kerry's Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jul 2015
Somewhat tired, but reasonable value for money. Needed a good spring-clean and repaint. Good to have a decent couch to sit in. Our unit had lots of room - I suspect those with more beds were tighter. Didn't see a lot of the hosts, which was fine - they left us to it. Reception had lots of travel idea brochures. Close enough to town if you had transport - maybe 15 minutes (flat) walk otherwise. Closer to other attractions on the south side of town. Easy to find. Parking was free, but tight if other guests weren't careful. Some noise from other units, but bearable. Plenty of hot water in shower; pressure average.
Date of stay: July 2015
Room Tip: We were downstairs. I imagine upstairs was quieter.

Very affordable and came with everything we needed. Staff were very nice but also gave us the privacy we needed. Not too far from supermarket, The Warehouse, McDonald's and the mall. Walls were quite thin so had to be extra quiet and rooms weren't anything fancy but overall GREAT accommodation at an affordable price.

Booked for 3 nights. Saw the room and started hunting for another motel . Grease up the walls described as having a cooker in the kitchen which was 2 elements which needed cleaned. The whole unit was filthy. I would never stay there. We got another motel. To be fair we were refunded 2 nights without question.

Stayed at Kerry's Motel while during the Bike Rotorua this weekend. Comfortable and clean. The linen and the beds were excellent. Everything we needed for a reasonable price. Friendly owners. Would stay again.

Room tip: Try and avoid rooms on the ground floor as it can be noisy.

My partner and I stayed at this motel for two nights while visiting Rotorua. It was well located, only 10 minutes to the Rotorua attractions, and very comfortable.

The breakfast provided for an extra 10 dollars was excellent, just right to start the day. The motel staff were very helpful and friendly. The motel was comfortable and provided enough privacy to end a lovely day exploring Rotorua.
