We stayed there for 2 nights. Was told that the motel is fronting the beach. But, we only had the beach sand in front of our motel! The beach is still far to see by the eyes. The room is spacious. Come with basic furnitures, mini fridges and kettle. The location considered strategic as very close to pantai cenang. You... More

A lot of plants and flower, cats (cute, fat,and fluffy), and the only drawback was mosquitos and cat poo smells along the way. But the room is okay. Big bathroom, got hot shower, got tv and small fridge, and air conditioner. Have windows only at... More

We went on another last minute trip so this was one of the few that had vacancies which was within our budget. So I guess I'll start with that - this is a budget hotel and it has the basics. The room we had was very spacious, had a small TV, small fridge, clean, no complaints. The hotel reception is... More

For RM125 per night, large room, large bathroom and 2 queen size bed this is the best bargain u can find in Cenang area. The only thing- towel they provided is worn out. I love the breakfast right in front of the hotel. Its purely local food and its cheap!!

At first everything was ok the room was big and there is a tv (in room 4 it didn't work though). However we noticed a dead bed bug on the pillow shortly after we... More
