The Stadium Motel is a centrally located, modern hospitality complex. The unique tranquility of being situated across the road from a picturesque tree-lined council park and reserve provides a very quiet and peaceful environment for all guests. This prime location allows for easy access (walking distance) to the CBD of Hamilton and many of the city’s sporting and theatrical clubs. Less than 50 metres from the gates to Waikato Stadium, 5 minutes walk to the nearest supermarkets and restaurants, and less than 10 minutes walk to the CBD makes this quiet complex ideally located to base yourself from for all activities whether business or pleasure. It is also only a short drive to the Claudelands Event Centre, Hamilton Gardens, The Base Shopping Complex or Westfield’s Chartwell Mall. Hamilton Airport is a 20 minutes' drive and Hobbit is 45 minutes.

We were in Hamilton for a week on business and stayed at the Stadium Motel, in one of three 2 bedroom duplex apartments located adjacent to the main accommodation wing. Lets start with the positives: Our host was a lovely lady who was very pleasant. The motel is not used for MSD emergency housing and our unit had quite new TV's in both bedrooms and a very large TV in the living area with good picture quality. And now for the negatives: Our apartment was tired, uncared for and worse, it was not clean. Stadium Motel is a very standard type of lodging that was probably built about 20 years ago, and since then has apparently enjoyed little maintenance and no refurbishment. Many of the fixtures and furnishings are stained, dented, broken or just old and tatty. But it was the lack of cleanliness that was most concerning. Crusty food splatters in the microwave and on a dinnerplate, dirty windows and walls, dusty grime covered appliances and surfaces, and curtains hanging off the rails were some of the faults that quite obviously have gone unattended for months or years. Much of this could be easily rectified with a scheduled maintenance and cleaning program, which I did bring to the attention of our lovely host. Stadium Motel may never be the destination for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, but it should be an okay place to stay, which sadly at the moment it's not. Instead it was a rather depressing place to be.

I needed milk alternative and the owner was very obliging and bought almond milk for me immediately and that is god sent if you're vegan. Rest is of the facility is same as other motels I guess. All motels are in the same area and its about 5 minutes drive to so called city centre - whats its worth!

For a short stay this was more than adequate. Excellent room upstairs with spa (I did not try) and shower in a big bathroom, comfortable bed and adequate fridge. Good value for money and quiet even though several units were occupied. Friendly helpful staff.

Great location, but outside the city centre. About 25 minute walk into the centre. Room was large and had everything you'd want for a short stay. Bathroom was large and clean. Would recommend this place.
