Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Lodging was fine, but pictures are misleading about where they're located. They're not right on the ocean as we were told, and the highway traffic is right outside your rooms. The room was not bad at all.

Review:   As Gisborne’s best motel accommodation right by the beach, Ocean Beach Motor Lodge combines upmarket and affordable luxury, offering self-contained apartment-style suites featuring full kitchens, free WiFi and private tropical courtyards. Best time i had in Gisborne.
