Very friendly owner who made us feel welcomed, unfortunately the bed was too soft and made for difficult sleeping. Overall a friendly affordable stay

Pros: Friendly staff, good heaters.
Cons: Motel complex is old, but serviceable. Could do with a Spa bath.
Our Always Inn Motel Unit was a great base for my family as we stayed in Palmerston North over a few days. We appreciated the heaters which kept us warm through some cold winter days. The staff were friendly and the Manager was very helpful.

Cheap and cheerful

An older motel and the outside really needs a facelift, however, I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped inside. Everything was very clean, bright and comfortable and there were some thoughtful extras such as makeup remover pads in the bathroom. The only negative is that the entire shower needs updating and the water pressure was poor. Pretty good value for money and very friendly owner.
