Close to Airport - Free Shuttle

A good place to put your head down while waiting for a connecting flight arriving after midnight. Easy and convenient to arrange free shuttle to and from the hotel with no fuss.

$60 Motel not $118

Pros: Nothing. If I'd been aware of any of this I would have changed motels - but I had already provided my credit card details via wotif.
Cons: Knock it down and start again.
The only thing to recommend this motel is that they provide a shuttle to airport - which I'm quite perplexed as to why it's call airport in its name - being 10mins drive away does not entitle you to be called airport anything - and is misleading. It was run-down and dingy. No bed-side lamp (when asked they couldn't provide one either as they didn't have a light bulb for the brand new one they pulled out of back office), no aircon (provided a small oil heater which I had to get changed as it was not working), they advertise free wifi but that only works if you are in the office itself or on the stairs outside the room (which caused me to spend money on data to retrieve and deal with emails for work). No food places near by to get dinner but a very expensive delivery service from local restaurant - that can't follow a food order properly.

Great for accomodation to/from the airport

Pros: Really comfy bed.
Cons: Meant to have free wifi but no info in the room. Maybe you had to ask for it.
A no fuss clean and tidy accomodation who will drop you off to the airport for free - This in itself is worth the stay.

Very bad experience as ALL my luggage was stolen

Within two hours of putting my luggage in the room it was all stolen while I was out having a meal...no TV footage to identify burglar and I have had no communication from the staff to show any concern...the door was certainly locked as my son in law locked it and I watched him do it. The owners have my information...they could have contacted me since to discuss it....I was left with nothing but what I was wearing to fly half way round the world...and not a word from them to give me any support...disgusting...they just rang the police.

Great value booking with Wotif

Pros: Our downstairs room was clean and very nicely decorated for a budget hotel.
Cons: The managers could be more proactive when we tell them of things which are not working properly instead of trying to tell us we use them incorrectly.
Location: Good shuttle service to and from the airport although the driver is not a happy person to guests.
We have stayed here ten times or more, flying into or out of NZ. The majority of our stays have been excellent, a few have been not so great.

No choice! Sorry but the rating above do not apply

Our booking for this motel was confirmed 14th Feb. On the 18th of May we arrived in Auckland and were picked up by the motel shuttle but instead of being taken to the Airport Travel Air Motor Inn we were dropped off at a place called Silver Oak Inn so I can't give a review of the motel we were supposed to stay in. We were very disappointed that we weren't told earlier that they were booked out so we could choose a replacement ourselves instead of ending up where we did. Our unit 27 at this other place was definitely not what we would have chosen. It smelt dank and musty, had a bashed in toilet door, rotting carpet around the fridge, had a shower that looked in desperate need of updating and an uncomfortable bed. Having a decent nights sleep was important for us as we had an extra long flight the next day.

Just OK

Hotel was ok served its purpose BUT Shuttle drivers (2) had absolutely no PR . Would be extremely disappointing if being a first time visitor and got any of these drivers. A terrible first impression.

Basic...no hairdryer, no alarm clock.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Person who is on the front desk phone to be more understandable...... Hairdryers. Alarm clock!!!!!!!
Location: Fairly close to the airport.
Considering it was a bed for the night after a flight and having to get away again early, it was ..a bed. Would never consider to want to be there when awake!.... had to use desk fan as a hair dryer.
