Exceptional 10.0
Very Nice Motel
We had a great time at the Cascades Motel. It was on the lake and provided a nice n long walking path around the water. The rooms were large and comfortable. We even had a jacuzzi tub. Thanks to the owners who offered good advice and service.
neil, usRomance trip
Good 6.0
Average rooms without lake access.
The motel was strictly average in every way. It is a sort of studio with a large bed. There was a small table at which two people could eat in a cramped sort of way. There was a kitchen with a working microwave and fridge. The utensils were barely sufficient for two people, but no one else and no bottle openers. The room was clean. There was a temporary, old floor heating unit in there the first night. The bathroom was in need of an upgrade of the flooring and sink. It was neither good nor bad - it was average and no lake access.

We stayed in 10 hotels during our trip to NZ and this was probably our favorite one. The managers/owners were absolutely friendly and helpful.

Very Good 8.0
It was a great location and a beautiful space but I didn’t realize they didn’t have air conditioning. We made due and were comfortable with the fans they provide. Unfortunately there was someone who left their dog unattended all night and he barked and whimpered the whole night until she greeted him at 5 am when she came home. Everything else was great.
