McLean Park Garden Motel is a clean but basic motel in a convenient location in Napier.
It's about a 20-30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive to the city centre. The motel itself is quite basic, but is clean and the owners/operators are very friendly. What was very handy was the cooking facilities in the unit, which did mean we could save on meal costs while holidaying in Napier by cooking some meals ourselves.
On our last day in Napier, we did loose hot water in our unit. Not sure why, but the shower ran cold in the late morning, and we couldn't get any hot water out of any of the taps. As we were checking out, we didn't bother complaining about it as it didn't really affect us anymore, but it was an annoyance.
The other slight annoyance was that the TV was positioned above the bed, so we couldn't watch TV from bed. Instead we had to watch from a small 2 seater couch opposite the bed. The couch wasn't in the most comfortable location to watch TV and also wasn't a very comfortable couch either. Still, not a big deal.
Mclean Park Garden Motel was one of the cheapest motels in Napier during the weekend we stayed there, but I do feel it was a little expensive for what it was, as it was a very basic room.
All in all, a good place to stay if you're going to be spending a lot of time out and about, and just using it as a place to sleep and shower, which is what we did. We found it convenient and a good place to stay for this purpose.
