Spanish Lady Motel
Ranked #31 of 46 Hotels in Napier
Reviewed 14 October 2017 via mobile

We just needed a 1 night stopover and having left it to the last minute and with limited options we booked into this motel for the night rather than the expensive alternatives. Turned out to be better than most of the motels we have stayed at. Friendly welcome and very well equipped and comfortable for 3 star rated motel. If you dont need luxury I would recommend this motel as excellent value.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled as a couple

If you want clean, comfy, courteous, cheap lodgings then you are at the right place. We paid $100 for a 2 bedrooms, plus lounge, full kitchen, bathroom and late checkout. We arrived late from the airport and found the curtains were pulled and electric blanket on.The heat pump was lovely. Didn't have time for the spa or to watch the TVs in the bedrooms Although it is on a busy street we didn't hear any noise at all. Dont know how old the place is but the hotwater cylinder said 1965, however it had been mostly refurbished.

The place we normally stay in Napier was fully booked so we thought we would give this place a try as it is just down the road. I had to ring the buzzer at the front desk numerous times until someone came and then when we got to our room, I had to go back as we had booked a double bed and the room only had 2 singles. Someone came and unlocked the bedroom with the double bed in it for us. It was cheap enough and the place was adequate but they would benefit from attending to some basic maintenance issues. The kitchen tap leaked as we found out when we left a brochure on the bench overnight and it was soaked in the morning and the remote control battery covers were missing and the batteries were held in with sellotape. There were a couple of other basic things (see photos) that are easy fixes and would make the place that bit nicer. Won't bother staying here again.

Located 2k from city centre, so car essential. Good quality motel unit with all usual facilities. Park outside unit. Swimming pool outside and uncovered. Probably much the same as the other motels along Kennedy Road.

Room Tip: Units further from main road are obviously quieter.

The staff were very helpful and cleanliness of the room was good. The cost of the room was what I expected for about 3 star accommodation.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the motel for anyone if you don't mind good budget accommodation.
The only criticism I had of the place was that the gardens and outdoor areas could do with a decent tidy up and then I would give you 10/10 instead of 8.
