6/10 Good

Nice but overpriced.
It was a good stay- very convenient to the airport. iI was expensive for the quality. I thought it was 92 dollars- but that was USD- with 150 NZ in the fine print. At $95 it would represent good value- at 150 it was overpriced.

4/10 Fair

Very average...cold and noisy
Ok, so this is a 2 star place at best. It MIGHT ne a 3 star motel if such a rating exists but it is definitely only 2* on rating system: You get your room with no spare linen or blankets/pillows and a small fan heater for the whole place, and a teeny space for your car. No other amenities. Curtains do not block light. Walls do not block noise. Rooms are cold. Shower has no pressure. And it is not cheap. Mattresses super hard with no spring. Worst night sleep in years. Only positive is we did get real milk and they did have a kettle. Also provided 2 cookies.

Great location. Near airport. Easy walk to beach. The room was not clean. Had to clean the bath before we could use it. There was hair in the bed sheets. Quite disgusting. But the location makes up for it so i would stay there again.
