We really liked the front desk woman she was wonderful ,however they had run out of milk and were going to get us some but none arrived ,to be fair we were only there for one night so not a big deal . The property is in dire need of some ongoing maintenance ,ie walls where fixtures have been moved have holes in , carpet and mats ragged in places ,entry doors and windows to rooms have not been cleaned since goodness’s knows when .

Great location, easy to get to. Arrived late, was told to find key in our unlocked room. This worked well. Could be a super motel if managment tidy up little things like removing carpet stains, cleaned up walls and paint falling off the bathroom ceiling. Other than this place was really clean.

4/10 Fair

This is the second review I have made on Aotea Lodge. We were very disappointed with the standard of cleanliness and the lack of basic maintenance we noted in unit 304. I was unable to bring the deficits to the attention of management until the day we left (we had a two night stay). Management were very apologetic about the state of the room and offered us a partial refund which we accepted. Management assured us that they would attend to the problems.
