Rotorua has a number of top-quality motel options for our visitors. All accommodation providers listed within this site accept visitor bookings only; they do not take any type of emergency housing or mixed-use bookings.

We welcome you to book directly with these preferred accommodation providers. Alternatively, you're welcome to seek advice and book your Rotorua accommodation through our friendly travel experts at either of our Rotorua i-SITE Visitor Information Centres who provide a 100% money back guarantee if your accommodation is not as they promise.

Motels are great for families, a couple’s getaway, or business trips. Many of our motels and hotels take advantage of our geothermal activity and have thermal pools in their suites or on the property.
Many motels also impress with great facilities around the property, such as mountain bike storage and washing stations, children’s playgrounds, BBQ areas, self-service laundries and even electric vehicle charging stations.
