Recent visit to New Zealand took us to the Motor Inn because of it's location to Hobsonville in particular, but also to easy access to North Shore and all locations North of Auckland, and the city itself. The Motor Inn would not be best described as luxurious but adequate if you intend to sleep, make breakfast next morning and head... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom room. There was a loft upstairs with a queen & a single bed plus two bedrooms downstairs. One with a queen bed and the other with 2 singles. It was clean and tidy. Quite dated and old. The service was good, direct and quick with no real chatter or small talk. We would stay... More

We stayed for 7 nights and it was a great place. The distance is pretty far away from the Auckland city, but on a great side, the place is quiet and easy. There's a lot of space for our kids to run around. There are also indoor pool in the unit. The kitchen area is pretty small but complete with... More

A bit tired looking rooms but adequate for what we wanted, very quiet during the night and morning considering the road outside is very busy. Comfy bed with a nice little private courtyard off the master bedroom.

We stayed for seven nights in the Club Pacific timeshare section of the Hobson Motor Inn. While the rooms were small, they were adequate for our needs. The living room, which was bright and airy looked out onto the car park and small garden area. However the main bedroom was dark and dingy with a decidedly strange, uninviting and definitely...

The staff here were very friendly and approachable. For just two of us, the 5-bed apartment was a bit pricey, but when we voiced our complaints a discount was offered immediately. The smoke detector in our room was missing, there was quite a marked smell of damp, no air con and the furniture was very shabby/damaged. TV worked well though,... More

Disappointed with the state of this motel the rooms were very dated and dirty. I put my child on the floor and his hands and knees were black from the carpet. The room was not clean at all. Would not stay at this place until they update rooms.

We stayed here for two nights in February 2016 as we were visiting friends in the Whenuapai area. Although the layout was good for our family of 5 (2 Adults, 2 Children, 1 Infant) the upstairs bedroom was so hot it was unbearable. Without flyscreens we coudn't open the windows, and there were no fans or air conditioning. Although the... More

Compared to other motels I have stayed at recently, this place is by far the worst. A serious upgrade is required, as the entire place feels and looks tired and outdated. At $175.00 per night I would have expected at least some free wifi, but no, $5.00 for 100MB is the going rate at the "Bates Motel"! The poor choice... More

Great if you want to explore the North Shore of Auckland and used as a quick stop. Needs a little updating and could do with some new linen. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. TV needs updating and no Sky channels or free wifi
