6/10 Good

In need of an upgrade
Great location that is convenient to everything. But the room we had needed a major upgrade, especially the bathroom. Kitchenette was great, but there wasn't enough crockery or items to cook with. One fry pan, not enough plates for the number of guests were some of the things disappointing. The room was tidy and serviced well. Trying to check in wasn't the best as the reception wasn't open (and during office hours too), plus I was asked to pay for the room again - I'm guessing unaware of the Expedia process. The final issue was on our checkout day when the manager came in 30mins before checkout to see if they could clean the room. Not professional at all. Overall assessment is an average motel. A little overpriced for what you're getting, but if you're looking for somewhere that gives you the basics and a convenient location, then it ticks the boxes.

8/10 Very good

Handy Motel to Central Lower Hutt
The Motel is nice and closer to central Lower Hutt and the surrounding suburbs. It is also easy to drive to Wellington City from here. The room was clean and warm and the shower had great pressure. This is my third visit and I will be back.

4/10 Fair

Quite easy to find
Arrived a little early and had to move our vehicle several times. Electric blanket for my husband was unable to be used - no cord to reach plug. The oven external plugs to use microwave did not work. Told manager.

It’s quiet and very comfortable.
This is my third time staying there. This time I got a room inside. It’s quiet and sleeping very well. Great Wifi. Heater a bit smell. I think it will be better to have a little lamb. Stuffs was lovely. I think a pillow is too flat. So I use three or four pillows on that night. Others is great. Happy and it’s cheaper.

I will surely be back to this motel 😁
Me & my family got to stay in one of the family apartments & we were so amazed that we got a great room for such a good price, especially when we had to look for a motel very last minute. The experience was amazing & so was the owner. The rooms were very tidy & warm. Stores were a drive away but that didn't bother us as we got to cruise through the streets of Lower Hutt and Petone. WiFi connection wasn't as strong but, other than that I enjoyed my time at Motel 22. I would highly recommend this place for any family to visit, I will surely be back again.

Was adequate
Room was tiny but was ok for 1 person, bed very soft and rolled into the middle. Room was clean, good shower and reasonably quiet street.
