2/10 Poor

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! This motel is mostly being used as temporary housing for people. I left after 15mins and went and stayed somewhere else. It is shocking that this motel is still offering rooms on a night by night basis.

8/10 Very good

Clean and comfortable. The only negative there was a lot of noise from other people staying there and someone knocked on the door at 6.30 am and woke everyone up.

First impression
Shower fixture was loose could not use it at all but informed hotel manager. Affordable stay one night is good but the room to close to road and noisy wouldn't be suitable if longer stay. Overall was great.

4/10 Fair

Staff were lovely. Room was average. Carpet needs a deep clean. My feet were black from walking on the carpet! I ended up washing the kitchen floor as it was disgusting. There are people living in some rooms and they are very inconsiderate to anyone else staying there. Slamming doors, shouting at each other using vile language at all hours of the night and their kids go around knocking on doors and run around the car park (directly outside the rooms) until MIDNIGHT! Staff were onsite when this was happening and they didn’t do anything about it. Really want my money back. Please read all the low rated reviews as they tell the truth! Don’t waste your money here.

Room was excellent and clean and exactly what we requested We had apartment 1 which is the closest to the road - lot of road noise, people stood outside our room (on the footpath) talking until the early hours.

2/10 Poor

Will never return!!! EVER
We were travelling from out of town and stayed one night to do some shopping in Hamilton. Me , my wife And our 1 year old daughter. We were shocked on arrival that most rooms were occupied by clients from ministry of social welfare. Outside our room was littered in smoke buds on the ground. The in the next room over was sitting outside smoking. The entire night we didnt get any sleep, due to people playing loud music, in rooms and in cars, slamming doors, yelling, kids running up and down outside our room at 10pm till early hours of the morning. Then around 5am someone knocked on our demanding money. But we never opened the door. We were close to packing our bags and leaving but since it was one night just put up with it. We actually stayed here some 5 or 6 years ago and had pleasant stay. I understand covid has put pressure on businesses but you should not have full paying customers staying alongside rift raft like what we saw. We will never ever return! The room was reasonably clean and spacious as the only reasonable comments we can make.
