Good 7.4 From 91 reviews

Very good 8.0
Motel on Carroll is unique in lots of ways! The location was good, if a little odd, and the room comfortable enough - but it's the first place I've ever stayed where I didn't see any staff at all. In the event, lack of personal contact wasn't a problem - I got an email explaining the arrival procedures, and the room was ready, with the key in the door, when we turned up. And there was a phone number provided if I had any issues. However it was a wee bit creepy, having only a message on a whiteboard to welcome us, and seeing no one else on the premises, save for a fleeting glimpse of one other guest at the end of a corridor. The room had everything we needed - but only because what we needed didn't include heating, as the only available means was a panel heater, propped against a wall, out of reach of any power points. I was reluctant to shift it - I'm sure it was meant to be fixed to the wall - so it was a relief that the room was warm enough without it. Would I stay there again? Probably (provided I wasn't on my own), if only because reasonably priced accommodation in Dunedin is scarce. Would I recommend it to others? Only with some fairly weighty provisos.

Overpriced with very little parking
We were not happy with out stay. Small room, couch was hard as a rock, bed was too soft kitchenette might as well have not been there it was so small bathroom had nothing dividing the shower from the rest so there was no where to hang a towel and the whole bathroom got wet when it ran. To top it all off, either the owner is using the parking spots for his hobby cars or they have rented the spaces out, either way, reducing the available car parks to only a handful. Would have been acceptable as a $80 motel room, it was very comparable to a motel we stayed in Wellington for that price. Also, our room did not auto lock, had no deadbolt or chain, making us uneasy about security especially with no one manning the front desk most of the day.

When arriving at motel no one was at reception there was a phone to ring manager and we were told to read the white board to find which room was ours and then told that just find your room the keys in the door so the security was lacking. Then I had to ring the manager again and asked if we could have another room the bathroom window didnt lock and was told we are busy and I dont know if there is another room eventually we got another room but not what we paid for and not offered a partial refund. There wasnt anybody at reception the whole time we were there and the front door was just unlocked the whole time so no sense of security

Nice and central but that's about all
First impression were that parking was almost non existent and the lady (the manager) on the desk was very abrupt indeed. Also, the motel was unable to provide me with a receipt that I needed for reimbursement for work, so I had to go back through Wotif and that was a mission in itself. The room itself was nice and clean although there was rubbish under the bet (2 empty water bottles and an ice block wrapper. There was also food in the fridge from the previous people. The motel itself was really handy to the Octagon and reasonable walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Shame about the motels the location was great.

Avoid Room 12
I only booked this motel, due to having to come to Dunedin on short notice. Room 12 is a shoe box of a room, with only one window to an underground carpark. There is no natural light. When I arrived, the room was stone cold, and it took hours for the ancient heater to warm the room. Also there was no contact with any staff over my entire stay. With only a white board as a welcome. I can only be glad that my wife wasn't with me, on this overnight stay, as she would have refused to stay here.
