Airport Motor Lodge

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The motor lodge was excellent!! Modern and super clean. The rooms were spacious and had enough room for us to fit portacots in for our twins. We had rooms with adjoining doors so we could move freely. Restaurants across the road Chinese, Greek and Burger King were a total bonus!! Airport just 650m away and we did this walk in the drizzling rain with 4 kids, 2 luggage trolleys no problem. Staff were super helpful and friendly. Would def stay again!!

Being just a short quick stay before our 6am flight the next day the room was everything what we hoped for. nice and modern quiet etc. Dave and his wife on the front desk are great, very accommodating and was a lovely greeting

I have a medical condition and booked here because they advertise a shuttle to the airport. My flight required me to be at the airport at midday, but reception advised me the shuttle did not run between 10am and 2pm. Friendly unhelpful staff did not offer any option but to check out before 10am and wait 4 1/2 hours for my flight

Our midnight arrival flight, with an early morning departure the following day called for an easily accessible, affordable and functional place to rest. If this is what you are looking for, then this is the best place to go. At the airport we were transferred to the motel, and within minutes were fetched. The room was comfortable, spacious and served its purpose. We actually walked to the airport the following morning – an easy walk! Highly recommended.

Our room was quite spacious. There was a giant spa tub in our bathroom. The bed was very large and so comfortable. WiFi is free and works great. Refrigerator and safe were in our room. Very clean. Excellent service at reception. They offer airport shuttle but it’s so close you can walk it in about 5 minutes.

Stayed here o/night to catch a 6.30am flight to Sydney. The managers could not have been more helpful - from emails before I arrived (about whether it was walking distance to the terminal at such an early hour - thanks for the tip about the luggage trolley!) to a friendly greeting on my arrival. After a clear explanation of how to do an early key drop I headed for the room and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation & provisions (coffee plungers always win me over!) plus the size of the bathroom! The week before I stayed in an inner Wellington hotel that could learn a lot from the Airport Motor Lodge! The room was comfortable- the Hellenic restaurant right across the Rd was divine & I was at the airport early after a brisk 5 minute walk in the early hours of the morning. I'd definitely stay here again for the location, the service and the room. Thanks.

Staying for convenience as located to airport. Room windows right beside Road - road noise and if you open the curtains no privacy save the tinted windows. Large shower and lovely hot water and fluffy towels. Other than that overnight stays is great anything else in the CBD stay in the CBD.

I stayed one night in the hotel with my family (wife and two daughters). The hotel has big and cozy rooms and the staff were great. Very close to the airport and with a parking car. Good for short stays.

Looks a bit rough/ uninviting on the outside but actually pretty tidy, clean and modern Shower could have more pressure but I'm used to a pretty strong one There's barely anything else to fault The room I had was spacious clean and thanks to manager who had turned heater on for my late arrival Also gave me great local advice for nearby eateries

Our room was very clean comfortable and warm. The large bathroom was a pleasant surprise . The service from our arrival through to our departure was fantastic as well. Altogether it made our visit to Wellington very pleasant .We will be back.
