We needed somewhere to stay awaiting the ferry to Tioman. This hotel served the purpose very well. Close to everything - walking distance to the town and ferry terminal - they have a free courtesy bus to take you and your luggage when needed - very helpful. There is an adjoining bar/snack bar - very useful in a near "dry"... More

I spent one night in this hotel before going to Tioman island. I took a taxi at Johor Bahru airport. You need to buy a coupon in the airport and you pay 178 RM. Mersing is located at 130 km from the airport and it takes 2 hours to get there. I was happy to have chosen Timotel hotel because... More

Its a 2 star hotel right in the middle of the city, near to the jetty terminal to tioman island but the rate was quite expensive. We stayed for two nites at RM250++/nite. The room was spacious with two queen bed. The toilet flush was sometimes functioning well but sometimes not. Though its a 2 star hotel but they provided... More

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 Downside was the room - very outdated and even a coat of paint over dirty walls would make it less of an eyesore!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.
