Ratings are Different in NZ

We ran into this a lot in nz. this was a fine motel, but not 4 star by any means. we needed to be close to the airport and wanted to be out of downtown. this motel filled the bill. it was old and had cabin-style rooms. linens and furniture were homey but not upscale.i've had better experiences for the money. although the folks there were very nice, friendly and helpful, as in almost all of nz.

Modestly priced is what you get

We stayed two nights in this hotel. It was average in all points. Though it advertised an airport shuttle one was not available for our very early morning flight. Had some difficulty with their internet access, but eventually OK.

Convenient location

This hotel is situated near the airport. A free shuttle service is available and they come quite quickly to pick you up. The staff member that we dealt with the most was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean but dated. We had a problem with plumbing and it was fixed by the end of the day.

The low cost car rental agencies use older model vehicles. Check them out before signing the contract.

If you're an int'l traveler, pickup a pre-paid sim for smartphone (500mins + 500mb at the airport for $50) and stick it in your smartphone so you have wifi and gps w/ maps.

Good deal close to the airport

Our two separate stays at the Airport Lodge Motel were comfortable and pleasant. We ended up doing some things recommended by the staff that we would have missed. Both times our rooms were actually small apartments with everything necessary for longer stays. the staff was helpful and friendly. Good value, great stay.

We loved our stay at this motel!

The room was extremely clean, very hot shower. It was great being greeted by being able to make our own hot chocolate in our room! We had a fully equipped kitchen, but decided to eat out. The motel employees got us a discout on the taxi!

In New Zealand, stay away from all the attractions that cost a lot of money. There are many beautiful walks, and free exhibits to take advantage of. Just plan a little!
