Very friendly staff. Clean rooms, every day a fresh towel and mineral water. Stayed here for a couple of nights in two different rooms. Both with airco. The bathroom windows don't close but have a mosquito net in front. But because of this, you hear many sounds from outside (traffic). The windows in the second room didn't shut completely so... More

This is a good motel for those you wont spend too much time there. It used to be a sauna/massage establishment and has been converted to a motel. We booked a room with a king sized bed and got one on the second floor facing the main road. It was a little loud with esp when motorcycles used to pass,... More

we did not expect too much from this hotel, what you pay is what you get, but still a decent place to stay. walk-in to stay is a breeze (because maybe they have available rooms) mine is a single room, small but good enough for 1 person thought the toilet for me is small and not quite decent space for...

I have stayed here a couple of times before. Favourite room is 205 as there is a mirror against the wall. Thus the room looks larger. Everything is kept clean. Parking yes it can be a bit of a bum. But hey just park your car and walk if you need to eat and all. Buses are easy to take.... More

Room was small but clean. Staff was efficient and helpful. WiFi was available but slow. If you are driving, there's a car park in front of the hotel (5 - 8 parking lots). Food are easily available nearby. Good if you are just looking for a place to crash at night. Not for long term stay. Avoid rooms facing the... More

Booked after reading the TripAdvisor reviews for a Deluxe Queen when we saw the small room we paid extra for the Delux king. We moved out after the first night to Copthorne Orchid. First time TripAdvisor has failed me :-( Good: 1. The reception ladies were very helpful otherwise rating would have been terrible. 2. The air-conditioner worked. Bad: There... More

A very peaceful and comfortable stay. Hotel car park is just in front of main entrance. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Check-in is a breeze. The hotel features are a bit old but comfortable. The lights in the room are dim. It will be better if the hotel can refurbish as the structure of the building is history. As the... More

I found this hotel to be nearby town and somehow on a good budget. I prefer a more home-stay place, cosy and rather not opt for the higher expensive hotel (i dun need an indoor swimming pool or free breakfast - i somehow never manage to wake up for it). I was first greeted by the counter staff immediately (I... More
