Whilst Tauranga is lacking in large international hotel chains, the local establishments more than make up for it, specifically the Harbour City Motor Inn.
I stayed here for 6 days around Christmas, and can't fault it. Comfortable beds, great amenities and perfect location. Easy access to Tauranga city, and to Mount Maunganui (5-7 minutes by car).
The rooms are serviced well every day, and I can say the experience was little different from an international quality hotel.
