Pros: nothing
No handy bedside light on one side of bed. Furniture is terribly outdated. Rusty heater on wall. Rusty bedside light. Broken kitchen cupboards. Broken floor skirting board. Only two drinking mugs, both stained. grubby tea-towel. Overall condition of unit very poor and depressing.

Clean & Tidy

Pros: Close to the job we needed to get to
Cons: Air freshener
Location: Close to the motorway off ramp
Room was clean & tidy but smelt of cigarette smoke, we are non smokers so I guess it affect us more.

Appears to be a live-in motel, which is a bit awkward. Facilities were average. No hair dryer in room. Noise from street not bad even with the roadworks going on right outside.

Old and neglected.

No actual sign saying Sunset Lodge just Motel so thankfully we had our Google Maps to say we'd arrived. The motel is old and run down and lacking in ground and property maintenance. If there had been anything else available in Auckland we wouldn't have stayed after seeing it from the road - I actually tried to call a few from the car before we even drove in!! There are cigarette stains on the dated vanity and no working lights or power points in the bathroom. Decor is from the 70s/80s at best. Bed was HARD; we don't mind a firm matress but this was something else! While the room 'smelt' wasn't. The office stank of stale cigarette smoke...but the quiet Asian man behind the desk was friendly and helpful. That's really the only positive I can give.

handy to the motorway

Pros: comfy beds quiet
Cons: good value for price
Location: estuary and cycle tracks along motorway
Although the road was subject to road works thats to be expected in auckland. Service was prompt beds were comfortable. The shower was quite tiny so I dont know how big breasted women would manage to close the door. But it was nice and hot. If you ever want to walk from western springs to the motel the north west cycle track is ideal well lit and takes one hour 50 minutes. Getting a car out of parking or trying to find a taxi could take that long. the trip to the Bombays took 40 minutes leaving at 9.30. So all in all the guns concert was great accommodation handy and we must have flucted the traffic madness

Not what we expected

Motel run down gardens untidy and swimming pool is of limits now for owners use only. Not one night decent sleep as permanent people living there are very active all night and too much noise made by them at night. Our room was bearly serviced. They was blood on the walls and doors which I had to clean up myself as it was there when we arrived. I would not recommend or stay again.

Unclean motel

Pros: The towels were nice and clean shower had good pressure
Cons: Most things repaint clean properly update of rooms
This motel was the worst I have stayed with, cobwebs round the ceiling, dusty skirting boards, no pool yet adverts display pool, kitchen curtains when pulled dropped dust over sink, hair in the shower tray

Sunset Lodge Overnight stay

Pros: big bed
Cons: A good airing and new curtains
We had booked a 2 bedroom unit , but on arrival were told it was actually 2 1 bedroom units. The units were clean. but 1 unit smelt strongly of stale cigarette smoke. Found bed very hard and curtains were very poor quality and let in a lot of light. Would never stay here again.

Location: Just off the Western Motorway, 15 mins drive (off-peak) from city centre.
Totally fine for what we were after - simple, straightforward, accessible.

Quiet and easy access to motorway

Pros: Really amazingly quiet given we were right on a main road - most noise was other people arriving. Easy to book, and all ready when I arrived.
Location: Close to SH1 on ramp, Henderson mall and some local parks & playgrounds. Would have been quick to get to new Westfield NorthWest shopping mall
Rooms were tidy, clean, and warm, with everything we needed including TV with lots of channels and some books in the office. Price was good, so we didn't mind that it wasn't fancy. Also, it was able to host our large family (that day, 1 adult and 4 kids...not all mine!!).
