We arrived at the Beaches Motor Inn on a wet cold Saturday night, I had the flu and we had been renovating so just felt like a comfortable bed away from the mess at home.

We love to stay at Beaches - very modern with everything you can need. Great location near Tahinanui Beach, a couple of restaurants and town. The Manager, George, is always friendly and accommodating.

Just wanted a studio for two for one night. we walked in off the street and got a better price than from the www, pays to ask. Nice room, clean & tidy, and far enough from the road as to not hear the street noise The bed was to soft for us, but you cant please everybody.

Clean and comfortable, and within walking distance to shops, etc The only gripe really is that an electric blanket didn't work on one of the beds and we stayed in the middle of the winter. A heater in the bathroom would've been a bonus too, for warmth and to prevent the bathroom from misting up. An average two bedroom unit... More

Couldnt fault this motor inn. The room was clean and well equipped. Our room was downstairs at the back and it was quiet and private with outdoor chairs to soak up the Nelson sunshine. Check in was friendly. Walking distance to the beach. Surrounded by many food outlets.

This is a lovely and luxurious motel. Our two-bedroom unit was light and modern, and opened on to a shared but very private courtyard, with outside furniture.
