We stayed there two days and would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Great location, free parking and Internet. Rooms were clean and modern. Right on edge of the main street and easy walk into town and easy access to roads leading to wineries. The hotel was spotless, comfortable and has easy to access and free parking.
What makes this place so great is the owners. We dealt mostly with Wayne who made wonderful recommendations on where to go for dining and carefully mapped out several outstanding wineries and a chocolate factory as well as other things to do. When we left and drove down to Christchurch for a flight the next day, I couldn't find a light jacket that I had and when I signed on the Internet, I saw an email from Wayne who said they had found it and he promptly overnight-ed it to our next hotel in Wellington. He just went far and above exceptional service. I would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

If you are visiting Blenheim this is a convenient place to stay for both visiting the vineyards and also Blenheim town. Walking distance of town centre on side of main road but very little traffic noise (none at night). Very helpful and friendly staff, clean and well provided units. This was our second visit and would certainly stay here again. Some good restaurants nearby including the motel recommended Chinese which was one of the best we have visited ANYWHERE!

Very friendly & helpful, with great rooms
The staff could not have been more helpful - advice on local stores & cafes and making reservations. When there was concern over the Interisland Ferry, the owner even called to find out information directly!
The rooms are very well laid out, with comfortable seating, great beds and a roomy bathroom. A great place to stay!

I stayed here for 3 nights - impeccably clean executive suite, room 1, separate bedroom, shower over spa bath, well catered kitchenette, spacious lounge area. A two minute walk gets you into the town's restaurant and cafe scene with plenty of eating options to choose from.
Hosts, Wayne & Sue, were professional and attentive to my requirements with a great sense of humour. Be aware though, if you arrive in a hunk-of-a-Mercedes with a little road dust spoiling its looks - it could be in for a "Wayne-over" - that's a hose-off with bells & whistles - he's a host who loves to see a good-looking car lookin' good and I appreciated that immensely.
By the way, their scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast are deliciously soft and fresh. Thanks for making my stay fun and enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to stay with you again.

You must stay here. A very central location right opposite the park and only a 2 min walk to town. The owners are very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay comfortable.
The rooms are newly decorated, with comfortable beds and good bathrooms.

The living room and separate bedroom were comfortable and spacious, clean and tidy. The lodge is close to town. The hosts were very welcoming. The kitchenette is well appointed with lots of tea and coffee and free milk when you arrive. Two wifi coupons were also provided

We've been trying to find the 'perfect' spot to stay in Blenheim and now we've done it. Pity it took 3 goes.
We had a downstairs studio room which was large and comfortable with a better bed than the one we have at home. And forgot to dig in and find out the brand and model :-(
Also, it is almost in the city centre so shops and many restaurants, including Watery Mouth and Eat Thai, are within easy walking distance
It was quiet, clean really well run and the operators could not have been more helpful.
Comfortable, easy and great hosts

We had stayed here previously and found it to be excellent. We returned because of that and found this to continue as an excellent stay - close to town - the closest to the lovely river / bike track and the park opposite is so colorful and relaxing. Beds are very comfy.
The hosts go out of their way to ensure that we were happy and the cooked breakfast was the best ever!
Highly recommend this motor lodge to travelers and families as it is such a pleasant environment.
