Very basic, very old and needs refurbishing but it was OK for the night. We used the Orana Motor Inn as a stop over to visit Cape Rienga and the Ninety Mile Beach. Although a microwave & fridge were provided, there were minimal dishes/cutlery provided as we normally self cater for our breakfasts. The gentleman at the front desk was...

The motor inn is clean and the bed was comfortable. The furniture is quite dated and well used. As other comments say - rooms at the back are quieter and the rooms on the top floor have breeze as both back and back balcony doors open. The Gentleman at the front desk was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The Sand Safari...

The room was quite close to the restaurant, so there was noise until a little later than we would have liked. It was clean and modern. Just like on the photos. What you see is what you get. The gentleman at reception was helpful in advising us on getting to 90-mile beach and seeing the sand dunes.

Comfortable and clean enough, but in dire need of a facelift. The bare light fixture in the bathroom says it all. I would suggest that there is better value for money at other Kaitaia hotels/motels. Now just a curiosity item. Why are there no window screens in NZ? It is not like there are no bugs.
