    Nice cheap option in Rotorua
    Well maintained hotel, there is a smell of sulfur outside(from the hot springs) but it wasn't too strong inside the rooms. Close to downtown and lots of restaurants and the staff was very friendly.

    Motel in Rotorua
    The motel was nice for a one night stay. The only drawback is not specific to this hotel but to the area. The smell of Sulfur in Rotorua seems to be everywhere. With windows open, the smell is not pleasant. The room was large, clean and comfortable.
