Most comfortable bed we've ever slept on. The only drawback for the motel is that it is on a street with very bad traffic. It takes a long time to get to at most times of the day. Our room was HUGE and had all the kitchen amenities. We even had a very large patio with a picnic table. Old,... More

If you like the idea of staying in a clean, tidy but old motel on a really busy road then Howick Motor Lodge is just the place for you. As other reviewers have said, while the motel is clean and tidy it is pretty old. While I was prepared for this I was still taken aback at the age somewhat.... More

Stayed at this hidden Gem from May 18, 2016 to May 21, 2016 with my family. This place is old but has character and it is a family run business which we enjoy to support.

We stayed here for 2 nights, attending a conference in nearby Howick Village. Room was clean, very comfortable, exceptionally efficient and friendly service. Highly recommended. Price also very affordable and value for money.

Stayed for a total of 16 nights during a recent 3 week trip to NZ. We were visiting family in two nearby towns and the motel was about halfway between Pakuranga and Cockle Bay or downtown Howick.

This motel is quite old but has been well maintained. The rooms are compact and the stairs are steep. However everything is spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Perfectly adequate for a couple of nights.

We booked this motel because it was close to the Half Moon Bay ferry and not too far from the airport. It's not close to downtown, but if you have a rental car, it's close enough. Carrying the luggage to the second floor was a nuisance, the room was ok. Fair value for your money but nothing special.
