Friendly greeting. Location of motel to city. Relaxing environment
Its not that I didnt like. I thought the credit card number was for insurance sake, I had the intention of paying cash when I arrived but the credit card had already been used to pay for it. Its just that the credit card didnt belong to me as I dont own one.
Worst hotel ever stayed in and freezing cold
The owner was helpful in helping me book a Maori village tour at the last minute and was helpful in assisting me to get wifi access, which was very low to nonexistent from my unit, the furthest from the office.
I didnt realize the rooms were facing the busy street and have locking sliding glass doors but no real door, which would have been preferable for safety reasons for me. Also, it seemed like the room, although neat and orderly, had not been cleaned in a while as there was dust and dead bugs there. The redeeming aspect was the low cost for a private room with a bathroom and the wifi access when I got access and the helpfulness of the owner.
Free wifi, friendly and helpful staff/ owner.
Ace Motor Lodge is fairly well situated for both shopping and tourist attractions. The duty manager was polite and greeted us with a smile. His English language skills were reasonable. Our room was ready when we arrived. It was clean and reasonably comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. We liked that the room had a refrigerator, microwave oven and a good size television screen. The parking was convenient.
The room seemed to have been recently repainted but the general appearance of the room was very shabby. The bathroom vanity had long passed it's used by date and really needed replacing urgently. There was only one armchair and the only other place to sit was on dining chairs or the main double bed. As the lodge is situated on the main (and very busy road) all the windows should have been double glazed to cut down the noise levels. The windows in the toilet and bathroom need security stays for guests and their luggage safety. There was no utility booklet to give directions on use of the television and channels or directions on how to contact the manager or order breakfast.
Well sign posted, esay to find.Very good off road parking. Warm friendly welcome. Being able to order beakfast and prompt service. Thanks very much.Mr.& Mrs.Thompson
Good location, polite staff, nice room, includes a nifty bath tub (some can even call it a jacuzzi).
A bit far away from the center of the town, poor bus services, about 1 mile by foot.
the spa bath was great, large room
the star gazing room, unable to cover the skylight meant it never got dark, and flip open windows didnt let in any draught so room very air-less and hot
The owner was kind enough to give us an extra carton of milk when requested without complaints.
Felt dirty and it was loud.
no curtains in star gazing room to cover glass ceiling
Good price. Comfortable and convenient. Very pleaseant staff.
Disappointed not to have Sky Sports TV, as wanted to watch US Open tennis.
Kitchen faxilities, easy access, and good value for the money.
Friendly, helpful staff. Good value for money. Clean and tidy.
It's budget accomodation, so it's not very luxurious or high end. Suitable for young people or families on a budget, not suitable for romantic get-away or pamper holiday.
Value for money, reception opening hours, location, free wifi.
Rather old furniture. A cooker will be a good idea. Lack of wine glases.
