Going for a holiday in Tauranga is a great idea. You will have a lot of fun swimming with the dolphins, dining at the harbour front and even paddle-boarding around the mountain. Probably you will need to stay in the town for a few days. Here are some affordable accommodation you could choose from.
Ambassador Motor Inn
Staying at the Ambassador Motor Inn is quite comfortable, affordable and convenient. The inn has about 20 motel units, both deluxe studio and standard sizes. You can also book one of the two-bedroom units in case you are travelling with your family. The rooms are self-contained with kitchen facilities, Sky TV and free Wi-Fi.
The Rainbow Motel
This is one of the most convenient motels you’ll find in Tauranga. Given that it is quite close to the city makes it even better, located opposite Gate Pa Shopping Mall. You can decide to either go with the self-contained rooms or the private rooms with a communal bathroom and kitchen. Both are quite budget-friendly, but it depends on how much more you want to save.
Asure Macy’s Motor Inn4
This is one place with several boarding options. You can either go with the simple hotel-like rooms or decide to book a multi-bedroom apartment, which is quite comfortable for its price. Other than the two, there is also the compact mini-studio or the open-plan ensuite. The difference between these two and the first two options is that they do not have kitchenette facilities.
18th Avenue Thermal Motel
For people who love their luxury, this motel is a budget accommodation that has a thermal pool, filled with water from the natural hot underground spring. However, this is just one of the options it offers. You can also choose between affordable studios and one/two-bedroom units. The one/two-bedroom has an inbuilt children’s playground. Location is also quite convenient, given that it is next to Tauranga Hospital and other shops plus eateries.
