Stayed there for first time as usual options were sold out or highly priced due to high demand. Shabby room, paint peeling, vanity falling apart, stained old toilet seat etc. Met two people working there. Both unfriendly. How hard is it to say "was everything ok" " have a nice day" or even "goodbye " Wouldn't stay again

The room is much smaller than all other motels I have stayed in NZL. Yes parking is free but the allocated spot is very tight to get out. The facility and furniture are old and lack of maintenance, where 2 of the 3 ceiling lights were broken. There are microwave oven, water kettle and bar fridge, and nothing else for... More

The motel had all your amenities that you would expect. A spacious room. The people were friendly enough. Oddly enough I had to pay upfront whereas the five star hotel I stayed to night before and most other motels wait until you leave. Like other reviews the cleanliness needs attention, especially the toilets, shower and sink areas. Marks were still... More

Stayed in a studio unit. It had no kitchen sink, but was very well equipped otherwise. Quiet and well located. Only problems: I had trouble closing the ranch slider door and there were no security stays on the windows.

Stayed here for 12 nights and stayed in a one bedroom family unit. Our unit was clean although a little on the small side but certainly done the job we needed it to. The kitchen is adequate enough to cook a small meal although there's no oven. The bathroom is big enough although the shower is not the best. Bedroom... More

Compared to the motor park down the street where we stayed last time, this was a huge improvement. While this is not your 5 star hotel, it is good enough for the basic traveler. I really appreciated the great friendly service of the manager on duty, the clean and good sized bathroom (although I cannot imagine a large person in... More

Ocean Inn Motel is quite nice and has everything you want. Comfortable rooms, enough space, for me a good location, good service, supermarket nearby and a perfectly clean interior. I do fine it pretty hot at night with no airconditioning or fans and don't really expect stinking hot weather in Auckland, but I guess that's pretty rare. Probably 3.5 stars... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Unit 1 (one bedroom) on the ground floor. Parking is numbered and allocated outside the rooms so it was hassle-free lugging belongings into and out of the room from the car. As we were only having breakfasts and the odd cuppa in our room we weren't too concerned with the kitchen facilities. These were adequate... More

We were staying at this motel for several days. Unfortunately we booked a studio which was tiny. The wardrobe space is very small so, overall, there is very little room to hang clothes. The "kitchen" is really just one shelf only 60cm wide! Cutlery and crockery are very limited (3 of knife, fork, spoon, and 3 plates) and were up... More
