We stayed in this motel for two separate stints during the Lions Tour of 2017. At first sight the hotel looked in need of a refurbishment and a bit run down; however, the staff were friendly and helpful.
The room smelt of damp - probably because we arrived at the depth of winter. Unfortunately there were areas where it could certainly be improved on. The shower platform does not drain, so one is forced to shower in a puddle, and some of the windows do not open/close very well.
There is residual noise from the room but that is due to it being close to a main road (Te Atatu South).
There are some amenities near by, including a large supermarket and petrol station. There is on-site parking.
Overall this is an ok place to stay for a short while if you don't want to pay central Auckland prices, and is easy to get on the motorway to explore other parts of New Zealand, but I wouldn't stay here for as long as we did.
