Dissappointed

Review of Apple Motor Inn
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Jan 2024
We Found this complex in need of an upgrade, it felt very old & tied, we did not feel very comfortable & it was expensive compared with other facilities we stayed in during our journey round North Island. We doubt that we would make a return visit.

This is the worst motel I have stayed in, ever. Very dated rooms, the pillows were just horrible. No air-con, just an inadequate thing on the wall which did not heat the room, not sufficient for an NZ winter, so I was really cold all night and didn't sleep well. No shampoo or hairdryer. Don't stay here.

Room tip: Go stay somewhere else, it's not as though it was much cheaper than other motels in the area

We have just spent 3 weeks here with our cat.

Was clean, tidy, comfortable motel. Staff were friendly and nothing was a problem.

Appreciate having a haven after being evacuated from our storm damaged home.

Would happily book and stay here again.

Not staying here again. Just wanted a peaceful place to stay before a long drive home the next day. The room stunk of stale alchohol. Got the smell as soon as we walked in.The entire place including the room was extremely run down. The walls super thin so could hear EVERYTHING that was happening in the room next door🤮 Didn't sleep much so defeated the purpose off there stay. I get it's budget accomm but come on, fill the holes, fresh coat of paint, fix the plumbing,
shampoo the carpets, so disappointing. It reminded me of motels in horror movies. Couldn't wait to leave. Yuck👎🏽

Our check in was easy. The room is neat And overall tidy. There are toiletries provided.
Room has mini fridge, microwave and utensils.
However since it was summer, the weather becomes to humid in the evening and electric fan is only available upon request which we dont know on the 1st day. It wasn’t a good sleep for me.
The blankets were itchy and my daughter got flee bites on 3rd day.
The pool is not maintained.
Check out was fast.

Room tip: Parking is one car per room.

I would recommend this motel as I stayed just over night. Room was clean. Sound proof. Allowed my two small dogs. Good parking and I was put out of the way which I appreciated. Staff friendly. And price was very reasonable
