Had booked the room in this Motel after reading the reviews of my colleagues on Trip Advisor but did not find it worth staying. This being a big motel is not being managed properly. Front office staff is not at all cooperative. Was allotted upper floor room in spite of my request for a ground floor room as my wife... More

This place is pretty big considering it is on both sides of the road. For the price it is not worth it. Rooms are dirty and dated. Internet only works in the lobby where you have to stand around with 30 other people trying to use the internet. Alot of shady people were staying there and for the first time... More

The rooms were fine, location good, prices fair. Desk staff could barely speak English so communication a bit difficult. They would sell more trips etc. If they could only discuss options! Local families stay there, groups of guys, people with young kids, all calling out merrily to each other, which isn't exactly restful, especially the groups of Indian men with... More

AB Motel is located not only on the beach rather you can say its on the water. I stayed 2 nights with my friend on the corner cottage. the rooms are big and clean. Toilet facilities are good. I love the motel so much.

This hote is well situated by the chenang beach. The accomodation is comfortable with basic amenities...Most importabtly it maintains a clean environment. Since its just by the roadside, things cn get a bit noisy even at night. Otherwise good price for a budget vacation. Worth a try in Langkawi

The room was spacious - 1 queen bed, tv with local channel, mini bar, toilet with water heater and aircond + ceiling fan. More quiet than 1st AB motel in front the beach (reception at... More
