Close to Airport

Great hotel, friendly staff, lots of room. Our only problem was the air conditioning was not working properly for our room. Was only blowing room temp air.

Airport Lodge Hotel

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: All of the above.
Location: Basic location and no activities close by.
Advertised as a family accommodation - one bed was a futon type and no padding. The other single bed had a sagged mattress and the base was broken. Bathroom area was unsatisfactory and old. Shower recess dangerous to enter into and step down from. Internal doors were old and paint chipped. No basic supplies - no face tissues, handbasin soap ran out after a few hand washes. Air conditioner was broken.

Arrival & noise

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Trained staff in customer service
Location: busy street
Front reception locked, waited half hour no apology or customer service (rude). The staff and people next door talked all night and kept us awake with nothing done by front office to control the noise. We had to close all our windows as people were smoking outside our room and all the smoke was coming into our room.

What a dump!!!

Pros: The shuttle driver and cleaning staff were pleasant
Cons: Would need a bulldozer.....
Location: Definetly, don't go out at night
Booked a "Standard unit" for two nights, these "12 x standard units" are over 40 years old and this is very obvious, they are better described as "sub standard 2 star" and could not in your wildest imagination qualify for 4 star rating. Don,t know what their, so called, 4 star rooms are like but advise all "NOT" to book a "standard unit". Complaints to management resulted in menacing demeanor with upper lip quivering, apparantly angered by my descrition of unit as filthy and sub standard and my referance to being bitten by bed bugs. Air conditioning didn't work, plug in bathroom for shaver etc didn't function. Only redeeming features, free shuttle and close to airport, [but don't even think about going out for a walk in this neighborhood]. Altogether a very unpleasant experience, never to be repeated.

Good location near airpocart.

Pros: Location and free parking
Cons: Rooms closest to main road a bit tired
Close to airport and the free car storage is a bonus. We always stay here the night before flying out of Auckland
