Very basic

Cons: Have a proper recpetion and update the rooms. An iron would be good.
A very basic room, with no iron, simple seating and a shared recpetion with another motel. This is not ideal when booking in at the end of the days travel and having to go down the road to check in.

Pros: Close to Petone
Cons: Basic room maintenance and cleanliness
This hotel has the potential to be a comfortable, clean and affordable place to stay. Unfortunately, they just don’t care. My room reeked of smoke so much I was gagging. My neighbour and I both complained to staff and their response was to put an air freshener in the room which barely masked the smell. My television didn’t work and since I was staying for 3 nights, the staff promised they would either get me a new tv by the next day or move me into another room. They did neither. There are many long term residents there who are noisy, smoke outside. Unfortunately, due to the low availability of hotels in the areas, this hotel will always get the desperate travellers who book at the last minute, so they have no motivation to improve.

First impressions at front desk weren't good with porn on the computer screen! Room was dated but ok for what we needed. Was serviced daily.

Bad Experiance

Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: Training the staff in customer service !!!!!!! .Better and accurate room descriptions on line. FIX THINGS THAT DONT WORK..
Location: Awesome Indian restaurant 10 mins walk.(.Maharajas )
Booked this(and paid) on line where the description said :1 bedroom, 1 queen, 1 single.: Great I thought as my partner snores badly and we could sleep in separate rooms. Arrived and was told the room was a studio to which the woman on reception blamed Wotif for describing the room incorrectly. There was no accommodation with 2 rooms available so she offered me an house (2 bedrooms) in the next door motel (Du Pont motel,they run this too!) for an extra fee ( rip off). Tired and very annoyed, I accepted this as I just wanted too sleep. We entered this house only to find it cold and without heating options, no curtains in some rooms, windows that did not close properly and lumpy beds .NOT FUNNY. Back to reception went I, about to blow my top. She then put us in a three bedroom house which was ok.........except the dishwasher was full of dirty water and stunk, door knob on inside of bathroom door was replaced by a nail and there was no information for guests re dining in town. This entire set up is horrific and I urge you not to stay here. We wont be back.

Good location

Pros: Great location for getting in and out of Wellington city.
Cons: Perhaps a deep clean for the rooms to try and rid the long-term smells.
This was a great spot, and you can't fault the cleanliness of the rooms and helpfulness of staff. However, the two rooms we had were very smelly - ingrained long-term type aromas.
