Airport Motor Lodge

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Have stayed at this Motor Lodge more than 10 times over the last 9 months. The rooms are very clean and tidy, with good beds and the breakfast service is a great way to start the day. Dinner is not normally available but twice they provided dinner - and on other visits they gave good advice on where to go for dinner. Meals are just like home cooking and the management is very friendly and helpful. On one occasion one of the lights was not working, but it was fixed within 10 minutes of being notified.

I always stay here when I get in late to Wellington. Its only a couple of minutes from the airport and there's a free shuttle to pick you up at anytime. The rooms are all sound proofed so you don't hear the planes coming and going if you want to sleep in. There's a bus stop right outside to take you into the CBD and you can leave your bags there after check out should you wish to explore before you leave Wellington.

Clean, friendly, convenient, perfect if you need to fly in late and transfer early the next day. Late shuttle no problem, and they looked after a suitcase for us for a week while we were tramping on South Island. Would stay again.

Where do I begin? Filthy, bugs, rude staff.......don't go. Bathroom was dirty. Wifi didn't work properly. The only thing it has going for it is its proximity to the airport. Would be a good place to use as an example of how not to run a motor lodge in a hotel management program. Staff very rude.

Corner of Broadway and Hobart Street Wellington
