Affordable, neat, clean and a very efficient self servicing apartment. A shared barbecue station; the house-keeping is strict about timings though; walking distance from the lake front and very nice eating joints at walking distance.

Recently, while visiting Taupo for the weekend, we decided to forward book the Acapulco Motor Inn which is in Rifle Range Road. We had booked a Suite with Two Separate bedrooms as we had Two Families along for the trip. On arrival we found the staff to be Friendly and Helpful, even providing us with Extra Milk for the two...

Nice tidy room and had everything we needed for our stay. Reception staff super friendly and very helpful. Carpark outside rooms are a little awkward which doesn't leave a lot of space outside the door, although not a deal breaker.

Stayed here for one night on our way from Wellngton to Auckland. Arrived after the office was closed, but phoned ahead and they said not to stress about rushing and left us a key out. The room was well laid out, the beds were really comfortable, and the air conditioning unit in the room made for a great night sleep...

I have stayed at the Acapulco a few times and really enjoyed it, This time was an exception. I know it was peak season but I expect better for the price I paid, The room itself was very basic, no frills at all. I did notice on the third night they hadn't changed the linen just made the bed with...

Acapulco Motor Inn is located fantastically, just a short walk away from the Taupo Lakefront, but hidden behind the council building so the noise of the busy road does not get through to the rooms at all. Upon arriving we were met by a lovely lady at the front desk and checkin was smooth and easy. She even gave us...

We stayed here for a night. The receptionist was friendly and gave me tips what to do in Taupo. The family room we stayed in was nice. The beds were very comfortable and modern. The other furniture etc is nice as well. Nothing too fancy but very sufficient. TV with sky. We had a small garden which was pleasant. It...

I enjoyed my stay here, the heatpump was noisy and could probably do with an upgrade. Apart from that, the room was clean and well equipped with everything you need. The location is really good, only a quick walk to the shops and restaurants.

We didn't really enjoy our stay here but luckily it was only for one night. The room was nice enough but the tv was really high on the wall which didn't make for comfortable viewing. What really let the place down was the bathroom, it was old and dirty, the shower was quite strange, it looked like it used to...
