Having driven from Waitomo, thru Rotorua, we needed to get to a motel for a rest. The Motor Inn, in Taupo, fit the bill well, as the staff were friendly and informative, the room was large enough and contained all we needed. It was also within close walking distance to Lake Taupo (five minutes), once we had rested, with a...

This motel is under new management and you can certainly see the improvements being done at the property. Besides the upgrades on-going, the heated pool, central location (making it possible to walk to Lake Taupo and the town centre - make this an ideal choice for a visit to Taupo any day!)

First off this was not that dear. Rooms were spotless and the location fantastic. An easy walk into town or to lake. No lake view from our room but a pleasant garden view. Also very quiet. Would stay again and happily recommend to others. Big parking area out back which was great as we had a trailer.

Comfy bed. Handy kitchenette with tea and coffee. About two or three blocks from restaurants and maybe two blocks from the shore. Firm checkout time: 10 AM. Strong WIFI, self-resetting if some tourist exceeds the download limit. Ask for Unit 2 -- has the no-obstacles shower, a real pleasure.

This hotel was clean and tidy, every thing needed was supplied. It would suit families or passing through. I wouldn't recommend it looking for luxury but it suited our needs. The lake view was minimal but location was handy.

Spacious rooms, very clean and a friendly welcome here. Small kitchenette, good enough to prepare breakfast. Would stay again. Handy location, a quick walk into town to restaurants and shops. Easy to find, undercover parking, plenty of units if travelling with a large group.

Spent 2 nights here and I have to say well worth it. Great staff. Just a small walk to the main town 5 minutes. Good spacious room. Bathroom big. Would recommend to anyone. Staff made us very welcome and gave us good tips for the rest of our trip
