Red Rock Thermal Motel, Rotorua
Really great motel
Only had one night here but room 7 that we had was lovely. It was very clean with a really large comfy bed, you had everything you needed. It also had a private patio with a table and chairs. The thermal pool was great and you could lock the door so you were the only ones in there.

Get a room close to office if you want WiFi
Staff was nice and helpful. However, we had issues with the first room we were given. WiFi was spotty at best (we were in room 7). Curtains had holes, room had ants, no tissues in room, shower temp would fluctuate so that I had to jump out of stream of water. We got moved to bigger room closer to office. That improved our WiFi and no ants, but other room issues existed. For example the sliding front door would not slide without a lot of effort and the towel rack was not secure to wall. Staff did their best to accommodate us though.

Excellent Service and Clean Motel
Red Rock Thermal is a nice little motel with clean rooms and excellent service. When we booked we were expecting a larger hotel, and were disappointed upon arrival when we realized that was not the case. Obviously, that was our fault for poor planning. We prematurely reported we were disappointed with check-in to the satisfaction email, and Molly the manager went so out of her way to make sure we were happy. We felt so awful for writing we were unhappy, didn't even know it reported that to the motel staff. But Molly was super nice about it and will really do all she can if you have any issues!
