Very Good8.0
Close to city center with parks nearby, relatively clean, good Wi-Fi, friendly & helpful front desk staff, very effective heater, & numerous movie channels. We could hear traffic through poorly sealed patio doors. Both recliner chairs were uncomfortable due to springs pushing upwards, creating a lopsided seat. Dining table chairs sunken in the middle, so also uncomfortable. Cleaning staff gave limited supply of coffee.

Nice motel for stopover
We were upgraded to a suite which was large and lovely. TV in both LR and BR. Large whirlpool bathtub, easy free parking.

Nice place with great service
We arrived late in the evening and the proprietor was very helpful and making us comfortable and later informed us that we needed to wake up one hour earlier because of daylight savings time, which would have caused us to miss our tour at Abel Tasman - very conscientous. The hotel itself is very comfortable and located on the outskirts of downtown.
