Best Western BK's Pioneer Motor Lodge

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our family of 4 recently stayed twice at BK's Motor Lodge. We selected this accommodation because it was close to the Airport and we had flown in on one date and then out on another and both times had flights that required us to be close to the airport ahead of staying in Auckland central. We were both stays in the same room which was upstairs and had the master suite in a bedroom and then a lounge area with small kitchenette and two single beds in this area as well. The facilities were all clean and parking was not allocated but easy to get a car bay. It was unseasonably warm both dates we stayed and these rooms have no air conditioning. They have electric heaters for winter but nothing for hotter weather. We asked at reception and they sent us up a pedestal fan which certainly helped. There was also a nice breeze it you sat out on the landing. The staff were happy to assist with our request and we thought this was good value for money. Even though there were major road works happening, we did not experience a noise problem and it was very convenient for the airport access. We would stay here again.

Chose this motor lodge as it was convenient to our campervan pickup location. Check in was good, the room was average for the price we were charged, and the checkout was very good. Rooms didn't seem very well insulated as there was quite a bit of traffic noise. Overall, a nice place to stay close to restaurants and the local shopping village.

On a trip to New Zealand in October, we stayed one night at Best Western BK's Pioneer Motor Lodge as we had an early morning flight the following morning. Check-in was pleasant and easy. Once we were checked in and had unloaded our rental car, we took it back to the car rental agency and the hotel's shuttle bus picked us up from there and brought us back to the hotel, which was much appreciated. They, of course, also took us to the airport the following morning for our flight. The room was quite large, comfortable and clean. My only complaint would be that our particular room was at the top of the stairs and the light from the large front window was seriously blocked by the fact that the laundry room was directly across the walkway, making the room feel much darker than it should have. We did like that there were at least a couple of restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel, as we did not want to go into Auckland that night. Otherwise, no complaints at all, and would recommend this property. Very close to the airport by shuttle.

We stayed here for the first time last weekend and were very pleasantly surprised. We chose a Superior room because they have air conditioning and it was great. Very comfy big bed, spacious room, large bathroom, kitchenette and spotlessly clean throughout. Very close to the airport too. Diana at the front desk was lovely and very helpful. Will stay here again

Really appreciated the shuttle service to and from airport before and after very long flights. The manager and employees were very friendly and helpful. The hotel room was clean and a good value for the price.

I am not sure how this motel gets 5 stars. We stayed here twice having pre booked on their web site for $189 a night we later found expedia doing it for $169! We stayed because we could park our car here free for the week. Any way the first night we stayed we had a room at the end of the block from the office and it was basic but OK. Quite large and clean. Be aware that major road works are going on right at the front of the building as when we returned from our trip at 11.30pm we had a room on the upper floor close to reception and although we had ear plugs were woken all night with trucks revving and engine noise. It was a nightmare. Shuttle was good and on our return we rang from the free phone at the information centre at the airport opposite the rental car booths and waited just 10 minutes. We will not be repeating the experience!

We stayed two nights on arriving in Auckland at the B.W. BK from the U.S. The reception was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at night and the shuttle was prompt and the check-in smooth. The room, while not fancy, was clean and very comfortable. The shuttle dropped us off at the car rental location rather than the airport which was nice. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and do recommend it if you are flying in or out of Auckland.

This Motor Lodge is located close to Auckland Airport. The room I stayed in was large with a very clean bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. The staff were welcoming and willing to assist with anything you needed. They offer a wonderful shuttle service to and from the airport. I was able to leave my car in a free car parking space for the 7 days I was away. I would definitely stay here again.

Upon arrivsl, the reception lady was welcoming and very pleasent. Large size room with most ammenities, car parking at the door. Free airport shuttle service. A bit pricy, but about average for near tge airport. Will stay again next trip.

A handy location to Auckland International Airport with free parking for 10 days & $7 per day thereafter.The airport shuttle driver & Ramesh the owner are helpful & friendly.Road works outside are almost complete so make access a lot easier.
