I stayed in The Checkers between 17th and 18th March and the experience was not pleasant. First of all the room allotted to me had a small circular bed which was pretty uncomfortable. I had to lie down exactly in the middle of the bed else my legs would go out of the bed. And yes, I am not a... More

hotel stay is not very delighted, room ac was not working perfectly and the food variety is not good, the only thing is that it is near to the airport otherwise it is not good for a family stay, if you are looking for a cheaper hotel then may be you can opt it

It's a jewel but the one which is sold on roadside and costs in pennies! And about "discovering this jewel", you won't discover... More

I had the misfortune of staying at The Checkers. The property is not at all well maintained. I think this was a landmark property during its prime (it has capsule lifts, end to end carpeting, video phones) but all in a state of poor maintenance. Location wise it is only around 20 mins (approx) from the airport and hence has... More

They were like treating us on their... More

Poor maintenance, full of mosquitoes, water was leaking from the bathroom in the upper floor, stinking bed. Had a very unpleasant stay and checked out immediately after I booked a room in a different hotel.

Wanted the share the experience we had during our banquet party on 10th of Jan. A Very pathetic show by the crew. The basics of hospitality was not taken care by crew, If there were any crew. I had to run to the manager every 15 mins to get things done. The Booking was from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.... More
