Poor 2.0
Attendant at check in hung up the phone on me three times and was very rude. Room floor was flooded by the refrigerator and bed was terrible

Review of Quest on Thorndon
On the surface, everything was fine. It was clean and comfortable. However, it had some weird issues. The lights/electric require you to plug in your keycard which they forgot to tell us nor could we find it in the guest info. This was easily fixed with a trip to the lobby; however, it would have been a pain had we gotten in late and the staff was gone. The dryer didn't really dry our clothes. The fan in the bathroom was on a timer or some "smart" control so we had to listen to it when it wasn't necessary. The location is very close to the rail station and Interisland Ferry shuttle.

Location is Great!
The bed was old and we could feel the springs. Otherwise, the place is great. It has all the amenities we needed. The location was very convenient to the center of town (walking distance). Parking is a challenge but we were able to get a spot for the night.

Good 6.0
mediocrity in wellington
I thought the online ad stated there was a foam mattress on the bed and there was a very weak regular mattress. The room was very quiet as per my request. When we arrived at around 10PM, we were able to enter the building because they left the key in a box for us but had difficulty entering a dark room unable to turn on any lights. We finally found someone staying at the hotel to help us. The front desk was not helpful when asked if we could check out late due to a very late flight (they never even offered to keep our luggage for a few hours) they were very cold about it. the housekeeping varied in its quality. One woman at the front desk was nice and indicated this was so I would mention her in my evaluation for the hotel chain itself, We stayed 22 nights and were treated like this. The room itself met our needs.
