Late check in no problem
We were running behind on our trip and I saw online that the check-in closed at 8:30. Called them up and they couldn't have been more helpful - when we got in about 11pmthe room was open, heater on, and check-in documents waiting on the table for me to sign. A friendly note as well. The room was large, well equipped, far better than we needed for our short time in it; when I come back for a longer time in Blenheim I will definitely stay here again as for a longer stay the comfort of the room would really enhance the time. Only criticism was that the mobile version of their website doesn't have a hotlink to their phone so in order to call them I had to copy the number out and dial it manually - minor inconvenience but I was on the road and under time pressure. No reflection on the motel quality, and easily sorted I'm sure.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Donna was great on checking in, swift, knew her stuff and got right on with it. The room was clean and fresh. The sofa bed in the lounge was a little unsupportive, but hey, that's because we've got back issues already for youngsters, so most things are unsupportive to us. Same with the beds being a little springy, but we still managed to crash for hours. Great having 3 tvs...way more than what was needed, but if less, others would probably complain about that. The shower was for maximum 5 foot tall folk...but nothing a little bending and stretching couldn't fix to get your hair wet. Overall, pretty happy with the accommodation and would definitely stay again.

I stayed 6 nights at 171 On High Motel in February 2019, and I could not have made a better choice. Donna is a perfect host, very warm and welcoming. My room was cozy and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and spacious bathroom. The motel is clean and modern, with a full range of amenities, including laundry (very welcome after more than two weeks of travel!) Excellent free WiFi. A very short walk to the city center. Donna was very attentive to my needs, and made me feel quite at home. We hugged upon my parting; how often does that happen at a motel!

Fair 4.0
Having paid $224.70 and booked 4 months prior we had high hopes for a great experience. Alas we were disappointed staying in a unit on a busy main road with no air conditioning. The unit itself was fine but the pedestal fan only blew warm air around and having the windows open meant for a noisy night and poor sleep. However the check in service was very good and very helpful with travel directions for our holiday.

Great motel with warm and welcoming hosts. The rooms were really comfortable, immaculately clean and very well equipped. They also provide great locally made soaps that are eco friendly. In fact, there’s clearly a lot of care out into environmental measures at 171. Our lovely hosts Donna and Paul also shared some fascinating stories about their Maori heritage, which was fascinating and gave us a really special insight into their culture. Thank you!
