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

I reserved seats for two for dinner buffet. However when we reached there the entire restaurant was empty (That should have... More

It was surprising as all other hotels were fully occupied but only this hotel had the availability. As we didn't have choice, we had... More

Otherwise it is on the main road. Was surprised to see the chairs upside down in the room. Bathroom was cleaned, but very old and shabby. (Don't know... More
