In need of an upgrade
Great location that is convenient to everything. But the room we had needed a major upgrade, especially the bathroom. Kitchenette was great, but there wasn't enough crockery or items to cook with. One fry pan, not enough plates for the number of guests were some of the things disappointing. The room was tidy and serviced well. Trying to check in wasn't the best as the reception wasn't open (and during office hours too), plus I was asked to pay for the room again - I'm guessing unaware of the Expedia process. The final issue was on our checkout day when the manager came in 30mins before checkout to see if they could clean the room. Not professional at all. Overall assessment is an average motel. A little overpriced for what you're getting, but if you're looking for somewhere that gives you the basics and a convenient location, then it ticks the boxes.
Pros: Room servicing, Location
Cons: Kitchenette stocked appropriately, Bathroom upgraded
Location: Close to the train station, Lower Hutt city, Lower Hutt Parkrun, 10 mins to Wellington city
