Location was right on the main road which was hard to get out of the driveway due to heavy traffic. Owner David didn't even check to see if we had checked in okay. Telephone was unplugged for 2 days and no one at reception to ask. Lamp was dusty, plates and cups were a total mismatch considering you could buy...

Will never go back. Service was terrible. Getting a couple of towels proved impossible. The place is run-down,and badly in need of an upgrade. The only good thing was the tv! Do not expect any level of customer service. $20 a night would have been a fair price... $120, no way!

In 2013 when I first stayed, the room was okay for the price, but I feel it's overpriced for the service now. I've stayed this place three times in the past because of it's convenient location but every time the place got poorer and wasn't updated. Also, I never had a good sleep in this motel as it is just...

Aah, it was awesome returning to Pakuranga, my old hometown after 16 odd years and the place has not changed! Great weather during winter time, and Auckland has much to see and do. This hotel reminds me of Best Western in North Vancouver, similar in size and layout. Even the old manager Mr Hsu from Malaysia and his team of...

The rooms are very basic and equipped to cover the necessities - slightly dated decor and due for a modern overhaul in the upcoming year or so. Cleaning done daily and the...

Unit is very small and cramped, so one member of our group had to go stay with family members. Poor patchwork done in shower, all the doors and walls needed a good clean. Basic thing like teabags etc were not replaced on 2nd day of stay. Even some of the UHT milk in the fridge was curdled. Wont be going...
