Review of Commodore Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Sept 2019via mobile
My wife and I stayed here in order to watch a large concert. Luckily we had a unit at the back away from the main road so it was nice and quiet or sort of. Unfortunately there were some very rude ignorant people staying below us who came back around 3am and made loud noises for the rest of the night. Unfortunately the office staff weren’t around when we left so we couldn’t inform them.

We arrived early but despite this we were able to check in straightaway. Upon check in we also found out we had been upgraded for free! This was a great start to our stay! The unit was tidy, warm and very comfortable. The staff on check in and check out were super friendly and helpful. My son lives 50m down the road and this is perfect when visiting him while he’s in Dunedin studying at Otago University. This is a place with real old style customer service that was a real pleasure to receive as you don’t come across it very often anymore these days. Highly recommend this motel! Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality :)

This motel has certainly seen better days, but that said, the room was very comfortable, wifi worked and was fast, the manager could not do enough for us, room servicing was really excellent, local recommendations were brilliant. All in all, by coming to the Commodore, we accidentally improved our stay in Dunedin quite considerably. Thanks to all concerned. By the way, any road noise mentioned in some other reviews, really dies down at night, and does not return until it is almost time to rise and shine.

Excellent Motel, the beds are fantastic, shower is moderish, with a shower dome, handily located on the oneway system, very friendly management team, and a good price.
We stayed one night, my wife and I and it is the first time we have slept in a bed we would love to take home.
Subway is right next door as well, I found it almost perfect.

We left it late to book a hotel in Dunedin there found most were fully booked. We were fortunate to find the Commodore. Their staff made a real effort to accommodate us. Our room was spacious and comfortable although some of the furnishings were starting to show their age. We could walk into town (30 minutes) with easy access to nearby Botanic Gardens. We self catered for breakfast but visited a nearby Italian Cafe for dinner.

This is an old motel. Quite dated. Plastic shower recess. Also located on busy road with quite a bit of noise at night. Staff friendly and helpful. But second day servicing of room poor. For half the price it might have been ok.
