A very enjoyable 2 night stay, the rooms are very modern, clean and spacious. The hosts are helpful giving advice about what you can do in the area and where you can eat.
The bed is a bit too soft for my liking but still comfy. We will definitely stay here again

Dear Cath,

Thank you for taking the time to review One88 on Commerce Motel in Whakatane, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and found our rooms clean, modern and spacious.

We note that your bed was a little too soft for you, please do not hesitate to contact us prior to your next visit and we will ensure a firmer Pillow Topper is put on your Bed instead of our usual Plush Pillow Toppers.

Whakatane is a very foody place and recommending nice places to eat in is a very easy thing to do for our Guests.

We look forwards to seeing you again the next time you visit Whakatane.

Kind regards

Liz and Malcolm

A very well presented, clean and well maintained property with all of the amenities one could want. Really great to stay in a motel that offers a bedroom separate to the other living facilities. Check in and other conversations were disappointing as at the time of our stay there were relieving managers on site who did not present the property as other reviewers have reported and were not particularly helpful when answering questions of a local nature

Dear Michael,

Thank you for taking the time to review One88 on Commerce in Whakatane, we appreciate all feedback whether it be positive or not so positive. We have taken note of your dissapointment and will be bringing up with our Motel Minders the issues you spoke about in our Telephone Conversation.

On a brighter note, we are so glad you found that our Housekeeping Staff were still doing the job they do so well, and that our Units were Clean and Well Presented.

We are now back on board after a well deserved break, and can bring our usual standard of welcoming back to the front desk of One88 on Commerce Motel in Whakatane.

We hope we catch you again the next time you are staying in Whakatane.

Kind regards

Never have I in the 12 years of staying in Motels all over NZ, have I had a owner walk me through a room explaining everything to me in detail.

Brilliant intro to a wonderful stay.

You will not be disappointed.

Highly recomended.

Dear David,

Thank you for taking the time to review One88 on Commerce Motel ion Whakatane, it is delightfull to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay.

Our Guests love being escorted to their room and having all the salient features pointed out to them. Just like Motelliers used to do back in the day when Hospitality really meant pampering your Guests. Our philosophy is that we greet our Guests with a big smile, we give them some Local Knowledge about Whakatane, and then we get them settled into their Guest Suite so they can relax and unwind.

We are on site from 7-00am through to 9-00pm every day and we really mean it when we say to a Guest, "if there is anything else we can help you with, just ask."

We hope we have the chance to spoil you again the next time you stay in Whakatane.

Kind regards

Liz and Malcolm

I have stayed at many motels in Whakatane and this place is by far the best. Very clean, large spa baths whilst the hosts Malcolm and Liz make you feel at home. A short walk to town. Do not waste your time anywhere else.
