Airport Motor Lodge

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was tidy, and had everything we needed for a one-night stay prior to catching our plane the next morning. The location was ideal, just a short walk across to the airport. The only thing that let the stay down for us was that there was a beeping sound that went on from about midnight through until we had to get up at 4.30 am to go to the airport, that was difficult to sleep through. The beeping turned out to be the night door near our room that was left slightly open by another customer. The beeping sound was the only thing that was bad about our stay. Apart from that, the motor lodge was excellent and so convenient. We would stay there again, but just make sure that the night door was closed properly!

Wonderful, welcoming staff who went out of their way to make sure everything was as good as it could be for us' They made sure there was a suitable room for our elderly father, and made sure he was safely to his room each time we arrived back. There was a minibar with snacks in the room, and there are several restaurants/bars within walking distance (10-15 minutes). Breakfasts were available for pre-ordering in your room

We arrived on the last flight from Sydney at 0100. Julie ann was there waiting for us with her darling dog, Molly. We were able to get a later checkout time. Very clean and comfortable. Very nice staff. Would highly recommend 👍🏻

Friendly staff. Midnight pickup was great. Motel room was very close to the airport which made it great for the late arrival. Quiet and comfortable room with mini bar which was handy for the late arrival.

Stopover in Wellington booked into the Airport Motor Lodge after a late flight from Sydney. Well appointed rooms very clean and tidy with mini bar, snacks plus coffee making. Pickup and drop off service a special thanks to Ian and Sandie for your hospitality.
