Awesome stay, this is the second time we've stayed with them, better this time except missing a folk which was fine. Thank you Manukau Motor Motel loved the music concert playing Saturday nite as well might've been annoying for some of the other guests but we enjoyed it.

Receptionist lady was so lovely and welcoming. Property was way overpriced for what it was. When booking the room, it was advertised “two-storey, two bedrooms unit” but when we arrived it was a tiny One level, 2 bedroom unit. Parking was good and location was great but hugely disappointing in the room and price. Found toenail clippings under the bed. Was sickening.
