I needed a motel for 4 nights to celebrate my sister-in-law & her sister's 70th.Birthday - clean, comfortable & a discount fro seniors or members of a motoring organisation - The motel has an adequate kitchen, a good queen bed + a single bed - it is set up for persons in a wheelchair

We have stayed in a couple of motel in Nelson and they all seemed a little dated and this one was no exception. The pool was not heated but that did not stop the kids jumping in. The beds were a bit soft and shower pressure was poor, but an ok place to stay in for a couple of nights....

This motor lodge is in the perfect location if you don't want to be right in town. Across the road from Macas and next door to Smugglers. Rooms are clean and owners are friendly. Only issue would be very small parking. Would stay again.

Our unit was no.3. Quiet room. It had two bedrooms. Each had a queen and a single. Heaps of room in the living/kitchen area. Big bathroom as well. Not new and modern, older decor and fittings. Clean and tidy and beautiful white towels. Very very comfy beds! Recommended. Close to service station, Mc Ds, and some lovely walkable-to eateries. Outdoor...

Stayed here for a night on our way to Golden Bay. I stay here whenever I am in Nelson. The rooms are always spotless and have everything you need. The host is friendly and welcoming and the location can't be beat-handy to bars, restaurants, shops and the beach. Plus has the added bonus if a pool which I enjoy.

We have stayed at the Apex Motel many times in the big family unit and smaller units. Space in the family unit is spot on as well as being well appointed like all the other units of varying sizes we have used. Everything is clean, fresh and functional. Errol is very helpful. The bbq and swimming pool are always ready...

The motel itself is perfectly fine - the rooms are clean, and the service was good. Unfortunately there are cheap flats next door where on the night we stayed at least there was intermittent racket all night echoing into the rooms down that side, and made sleeping very difficult. This might possibly be less of an issue in the rooms...
