Stayed at the Cleveland for two night. First impressions - the hosts were the best we have encountered. They were friendly, open, and informative, extremely professional and welcoming.

Spent two nights at the Econo Lodge Cleveland. The hosts were welcoming, accommodating and friendly. When the toaster in our room stopped working, they gave us their own toaster to use for our stay.

Econo lodge gives good value for money. Room & beds were clean. Had good internet & TV. Hosts took interest in explaining tourists points in Rotorua which was helpful. Handy to lot of local attractions. The kitchen needs to be updated and the motel is on the busy main road-traffic noise was heard as early as 5.30am.
