The decor is a bit dated at this motel but the room was immaculately clean and the owner/manager was super friendly and helpful. I've read other reviews that complained about traffic and train noise but I can honestly say it wasn't an issue at all. The Unit was clean and tidy and well set out and the beds were comfortable:...

Has all amenities, food, warmth, good ole NZ fish and chips: The motel manager, polite made sure you had all amenities. Private with trampoline for children, nice green grass to play on. Price for room affordable and the shower pressure was bliss. Very good bargain, and totally enjoyable stay. Definitely be going back!!

Recently needing somewhere to stay in Otaki we crossed our fingers and booked Otaki Motel. Definitely value for money at a reasonable price, very pleasant lookout on lawns, trees and seating area. A trampoline for children. Best of all, spotlessly clean and a good shower with plenty of hot water.. Would be happy to stay there again. My only mild...

Have stayed before to shop the outlet shops in Otaki. Location is brilliant - a 2 minute walk to shops. Motel unit very dated and very basic but comfortable and clean and has all that's needed - apart from wifi - apparently doesnt work so well in end unit. What I found a little surprising was the fact that the...

Very economical, good sized room, new bathroom and had a ranchslider to outside seating area. Conveniently located although it is sandwiched between a busy road and the railway line so be aware of this if you are used to a quiet location as the traffic doesn't stop at night!

This motel is straight out of the 70s including the beds. You can see bare electrical wires in the fuse box and in the bathroom. It it right on the main road so you hear the traffic all night. I cannot think of anything good to say about this motel.

Cam C, Manager at Otaki Motel, responded to this review

I'm really sorry to hear your experience with us was not satisfactory. We recently did some maintenance work which involved cutting down two of the trees next to the road. Unfortunately the result of this was that it has allowed some noise from the highway to enter into the nearest unit. We will try to come up with a solution...

This motel is a convenient stopping off place for travellers wanting to avoid the rush of Wellington. It is located on the main road but we did not find noise to be a problem. Rooms have a pleasant outlook on to a garden/lawn area with outside tables - ideal for summer. The beds were comfortable and linen and bed covers...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family run business who provide great value accommodation in Otaki. We are situated just a one hour drive from central Wellington and the Interisland ferry terminal. Our goal is to provide great value accommodation to local and international tourists at the same time as creating employment in Otaki.Otaki is a great place to grab a coffee on the way through to Wellington, or to do some discount shopping at one of the many retail stores. We love housing people visiting the region for weddings and family events. Many of our guests are Kiwis from different parts of New Zealand, but we love to meet international people as well. ... more   less
