Start with the good points: the lady that checked us in was top notch. We felt immediately welcomed. The staff obviously work hard to keep the place clean. Unfortunately, there is no mention that the property is directly on an extremely busy thoroughfare, under high tension lines, and across from a cement plant and container facility. Noisy? You bet. Big transport trucks loading containers all night. Other trucks using engine brakes as they came off the highway ramp. No AC so windows must stay open. There was plenty of space in the rooms, and they weren’t run down. It is an independently run motel. Still, no view, no airport shuttle (which I knew about, so that’s ok). Good points, pub/restaurant next door a pleasant surprise. Although I didn’t have it, I’d have the fish and chips next time. Looked huge! The district of Onehunga is about a km down the street and we really liked that. I would go back, but I want everyone to know what they’re buying.
