    The beds were very good and the staff member was very helpful

    The room was dirty, the spa was cracked and broken, all the windows had not been cleaned and a long time. for the price we paid it was not worth it. for 8 dollars more we found a better hotel across the street which was great (oasis resort) i would higly recomend!!

    We found the decor very old and worn. (quite disappointing. Could not turn of spa taps fully. Handles fell off and tap lose. ( held in by bent nails) Couch in main area thread bare.

    Karaka Tree Motel is quiet. Our unit was far enough away from the road not to hear any vehicle noise. The spa was excellent.

    There were a couple of lights that didn't work, and we informed the staff about this.
