We went there from the 6-10th. Couldn't plan earlier cause of work. Most of the resorts on tioman were quite fully booked. We tried to make a day trip. But the ferry timing back and forth was not practical. So we stayed at the Timotel all thru the holidays. Our room was large . The aircon was super. The water... More

For a cheap overnight before catching the ferry it was okay. Staff friendly and helpful and free shuttle bus to ferry terminal was very handy. It was a good location for popping to shops. Downside was the room - very outdated and even a coat of paint over dirty walls would make it less of an eyesore! Dirty walls and... More

Good stay over when going to the islands. Motel like, efficient, clean.. ask for a room in the back. Fast internet. Coffee could be better, for the rest fine! Mersing is not super interesting but a visit to the local barber shop and EE LO restaurant made it a good stay!

This hotel was particularly cheap, compared to others in Malaysia anyhow yet it was a pretty disgusting hotel. We stayed there for a night before heading over to the ferry port as I am sure many of their guest do. The room was pretty shoddy, I am not sure how they managed to get so many stand on the lampshades!?!... More

My first piece of advice would be to try to time your arrival in Mersing so that you can catch a ferry to Tioman the same day and avoid an overnight stay. It's not that thre's anything particularly wrong with Mersing but given the choice between a night in a small, quiet town or an extra night on a tropical... More

the bathroom was dirty and appalling. the hotel shuts off hot water after midnight. what they call breakfast is not even fit for a beggar. very noisy air condition kept us awake all night. when we complained the staff became rude and abusive.

After looking through reviews, we picked Timotel Hotel as it seemed the safest and nicest average cost hotel in Mersing, for our family that ranged in age from mid 70s to two teenagers. We were able to get a room with four single beds. Although we asked for a room at the back, we got one that overlooked the main... More

For RM230, this place was a total rip-off. I was there on a business trip and my accommodation was the last thing that I wanted to worry about. The room was dirty with pen marks on the wall and smelled musty. The shower curtains were covered in mold and water leaked from the bottom of the long bath when showering.... More

Stayed in this hotel en route to Tioman Island. The hotel has basic amenities and is dated, however, the staff were fantastic and friendly. The hotel is ok for an overnight stay although I wouldn't want to spend any more time here than I had to ...that applies to Mersing as well...not the nicest town.

The breakfast taste is not good, hotel bed is clean as my sensitive skin able to accept it. The amenities is very little, no toothbrush or razor and etc. no hair dryer. Compare to the price it is not so worth the value. Hotel staff is friendly and sweet
