The room was small, but the beds were reasonably comfortable. It had the basic tea and coffee making facilities. There was a laundry available for use, although I suspect the dryer was being used by the staff, which meant I had to hang mine in the room.

We stayed here on a wet New Years Eve night. It was comfortable and we were warmly welcomed by the staff. The hotel restaurant served great food. All three of us in our party chose different meals and all thought their choices were delicious and well presented. A good place to stay when beginning or ending your West Coast experience.

After a spectacular drive through very beautiful and stunning countryside from Picton we arrived in Westport. The local tourist info says "most people miss Westport for the more dramatic locations further south", and I can see why. There's not much to see or do in the town in fact we meandered up and down the Main Street with other bewildered...

We stayed elsewhere but ate at the Westport Motor Hotel restaurant. Only a few other people were in the restaurant, so we thought perhaps we had made a mistake. But the food was fabulous, especially the venison!

The rooms are very basic, even though we booked a superior queen!!! Something out of the 50's. No kitchenette just a kettle and tea,coffee. That's it, pay a little extra and stay somewhere else. Even had a pink shower enclosure.

The Motel rooms are rather basic but spacious enough, maybe little worn out by the years. Microwave would have been good but the room only had a sink and a fridge, not really sure what the sink should be good for. Shower is not the best construction since it kind of makes you flood the bathroom if you want to...

Very basic of 1970s era but very comfortable. Sadly we had no Microwave oven so would advise you to check if they are available in other rooms. The heater takes some time to warm the room. To be honest the Motor Lodge is below par for today and needs updating. Never the less a cheap stay over and priced according...

We wanted a motel just for one night that was handy, clean with a comfy bed as we'd come down on (mainly) business. This motel has been refurbished and our room was warm, had new carpets and curtains and was clean and tidy. Heater was a little noisy but we turned it off at bedtime. The staff were pleasant and...

My husband and I stayed in this motel in Westport. The rooms are basic, but they have everything you need so no complaints and for the price you pay it is good value. The staff at the front desk are very friendly and were able to book us in for another night when I came down with terrible migraines and...
