We didn't really enjoy our stay here but luckily it was only for one night. The room was nice enough but the tv was really high on the wall which didn't make for comfortable viewing. What really let the place down was the bathroom, it was old and dirty, the shower was quite strange, it looked like it used to...

Was lovely, quiet and well kept. Very clean and quite modern. Had a spa bath that was very relaxing in the room. the motor inn is located close to lake Taupo and the esplanade where many great restaurants are situated. Friendly staff with great facilities in the room.

Not accustomed to staying in a motel we were not sure what to expect when we booked this one night stay at the last minute. Taupo accommodation in general looks a bit mixed when viewed online but I have to say this was a total gem. We arrived and were checked in very efficiently. The room had everything you could...

Hotel is in a good location, not far from Lake and restaurants and cafes. Rooms are spacious but they need an upgrade of facilities and the cleaning requires more attention. The staff are nice and friendly.

Stayed here three nights with my girlfriend. The room was very good a lot of space with all you would need. Spa bath was the highlight staff was also very friendly and helpful. Location is great, close to town and our activities we planned were 5 - 10min drive away.

This review is in the context of motor lodges. Acapulco Motor Inn offers good value for money. The rooms are comfortable and large and the layout of great for between 2-3 people for a studio and up to 7 for their double storey apartment. All units come with a kitchenette, satellite TV, and you can borrow from their DVD library...

Close to town and the weekend rate was good value for Taupo. Our room had a separate bedroom for the kids and was spotlessly clean. The decor has been updated since we last stayed (before kids!). No issues. Would recommend and will be back!

Great Stay. Very comfortable room with whirlpool jacuzzi bath. Rooms were clean and fresh. Walking distance to Lake Taupo. A few minutes' walk into town centre. Easy access to plenty of food and beverage outlets.
