This is a family run motel, close to the airport. They offer free pickup and drop off at the airport if you call them when you arrive at Auckland airport. Despite what they said on the phone when we arrived and having called them earlier to inform them of the time they arrived more than 30 mins late. Basic room...

If you are staying overnight in Auckland and or need to stopover with your flights, this would have to be the place to stay. The booking in process was very good, they were great at communication and answering questions before the booking and they collected us within 10 minutes of phoning to say we had arrived. We needed to take...

If you didn't have Sat Nav you would have difficulty finding it. The room is as basic as you can get. Shower room . Uncomfortable bed. Time the mattress was changed !! No air conditioning!! and it was so hot. If you opened the windows it was too noisy. Small kitchenette area. No where on site to get food or...

We finished our trip near the the BW. We got a large air conditioned ground floor room that was clean and had a good bed. Check in was fast and the receptionist was very helpful. The one issue I have is the wifi keeps disconnecting and you have to log in again after just a couple of minutes of inactivity.

I just needed a spot to hang during my long layover between my domestic and international flights. The gentleman who picked me up at the airport was so friendly. He helped me upstairs with my luggage and made a good suggestion for a place for dinner within walking distance. The shower was good, the bed was comfortable and I had...

We stayed here twice over the span of a week. the hotel is clean and the shuttle service makes it feel right next to the airport, would stay here again on our next trip. Staff very helpful, even helping us get a small bit to eat late at night.

Clean, quiet at night, busy intersection at this date with road construction during the day. Staff very pleasant and helpful, rooms with microwave stove top and small fridge. Free shuttle and, limited free wifi. Unfortunately they do not have air conditioning which was fine for our stay late March as evening cooled down, would be very unpleasant even with fans...

Have stayed here about a year before. The friendly owners seem to be investing in making improvements to this Motor Lodge. The double room was comfortable and warm with a large spa bath with shower within. Slightly noisey with traffic as it's on a main road but not too bad. Travelled to Mt Smart, drive to Ellerslie Metro where parking...

Booked this property months in advance for our layover before returning home. Was able to capture a great rate, but I'm guessing you need to book early to get best rates, as the "No Vacancy" sign was on upon check-in and check-out. Nothing fancy, but rooms were more than adequate for our stay and very clean. Bed was very comfortable....
