Great location and roomy rooms with very hospitable manager who welcomed us and treated us very well. Motel is right next to beach marina and three minutes from ferry to downtown Auckland so extremely convenient . Rooms have been recently upgraded so better than some reviews we read. Very easy for parking and with nice kitchen and bathroom.
