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

Yes, I was being a bit cheap but... I think if you just need a place to stay with a bed, internet and a hot shower that's close to the beach, then this place is for you. There are a couple of convenience stores nearby and also some restaurants. I don't want to say it was a bad experience but... More

Sometimes, the budget hotels provide low cost rooms but the surroundings could be very noisy. And this may be the reason why the rooms are cheap. Desa Motel is bit away from the crowd. I stayed here for three nights with my parents. We thought we can just walk a bit to the Cenang Beach and the shops nearby. Somehow,... More
