Overall condition of the room is poor, carpet is stained and ripped, stains on the curtain. Constant fan on/off noise all night kept me awake. The driver who took me to the airport in the morning was amazing. The girl who picked me up was horrible and in a terrible mood - almost like she just couldn't be bothered doing her job and blamed me for her not knowing she had pick me up, gave me grief on the phone and was silent the entire ride back to the motel - like she was sulking. Only positive was that the bed was comfortable. I've stayed here a few times now, but after this experience I most likely wont be returning.

Great hotel with free airport shuttle

We stayed at the Auckland Airport Lodge as we had an early morning flight and it was super convenient. Offering comfy beds, free WiFi and a free airport shuttle, look no further when booking a convenient hotel for your next trip.

What you see is NOT what you get

Disappointed that the marketing did not match the reality. Room we got was too expensive compared to what we bought online.

Our overnight stay was comfortable. The room was clean but showed signs of wear, and could have had towel rails or hooks in bathroom.

We arrived late but the hotel provided a shuttle bus from the airport. All staff that we saw were friendly, accommodating and welcoming.
