          To be honest I was looking for the cheapest room for one night handy to town and bus terminal but was happy with the motel

          7.0

          Reasonably close to city centre..Separate bathroom and kitchen from accomodation area.Parking at door on ground level.

          Outside front road appeal was in need of an up grade, Signage,ground maintenance & generally all the property outside requires a makeover,Quiet disappointing as have stayed there 5-6 years ago when called Tokyo Motel and owner then was attending to the grounds etc.and it looked promising. Interior was passible but again getting to the stage of needing a tidy up. Room service was o'k Marks out of 1-10--- 1 being the lowest I would struggle to give it a 5 Price was what made it attractive . Also Saturday night a party till 4.00am was not wecomed. And next to our unit.Complained to manager ,and was told this is what one may have to expect sometimes,and they never noticed anything.Another couple also mentioned to us re the noise and the coming and goings on.

          8.2

          Was nice and private and friendly owner.Was nice and relaxing place to stay.

          Some motels I have stayed in palmerston north have spa baths and more sky channels in room but this was still good for the price,

        • Single
          7.8

          Central, and cheap. Considering I basically only slept there, being out for most of the time.

          location

          dirty, dated, bad smell, everything worn, one plate? one cup? no tea spoons, not very usefull when theres two people! should not have prebooked, lots of hotels around and they were cheaper!

          I was pretty tired, focused on work, just wanted internet (free and fast), a good breakfast on time (they went the extra mile to bring sign out stuff to room to save time). Room was completely dust free (and I can tell), great selection of channels (News, Sport and movies on sky). Near 10 good eateries. Nice staff. I'll be back if I need a stayopver in Palmy.

          Hi there. I found I got value for the price of the studio. Ok, there were no fancy 'bell's and whistle's but the room was very comfortable,warm,cosy and more importantly,clean. The self contained kitchette was great, lovely to cook dinner when we arrived and whip up bacon 'n' egg's for brekky next morning. The only 'downer' of my stay, it was only an overnighter (MY BAD). Thank's for all the above and yes, I will booking a room with you next time I come down, Jay.

          Location

          Run down facilities. In need of a major makeover. The towels were stained and looked like they had been dragged on long the floor. The entire room was lacking in general cleanliness.

        • Older travelers
          8.0

          Proximity to city and ease of parking. Little kitchen was well designed and newly fitted, as was the bathroom.

          Room, though adequate was rather in need of a make-over. Kitchen equipment was old, e.g. frying pan scratched/unusable. Attention to these details would improve a stay enormously.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Had all the facilities we needed, including enough sockets for connecting laptops and cell phones. Good value for money. Central location.

          Bed too soft. Place can do with some updating.
