“Cosy room with good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I stay in the room at the roadside. Rm100/nite. overall the room was good. I have no problem throughout mh 2 nites stay there. However as the room is just side by side n during the nite,if the neighbour were outside chatting with their friends it was somehow cause disturbance. However in regards to hotel service n d room i dont hv any issue.

We chose AB motel after having seen the Sandy Beach Resort, Best Star and Malibest (both situated basically next to AB motel). The price-quality relation convinced us to stay in AB motel.

We stayed in room A13, which is the first one next to the beach, it's actually a side-sea view room (bungalow), but it's located on the beach - you're sitting on your terrace facing the sea. The view is fantastic and it's worth the price (120 RM in low season, 150 in high season). The room itself is pretty basic, but as you spend most of the time outside it's really enough. It's quite big though, so you have enough space to store your stuff. The aircon was ok as well as small fridge. The shower has hot water. Unfortunately as you're basically living on the beach, ants can be a small problem. We asked at the reception if they have any insect repellent and they helped us out.
It's a basic, very well located motel motel with wi-fi at the reception area and a quite expensive restaurant. It has some common area on the main patio, next to the beach which can get a bit loud specially during weekends as it's open for the general public.
I would recommend this place for budget travellers!

To me, it was a very good room and value.
Of course it's simple, but the room is big with plenty of room for your things, big mirror, hangers ...
The water was not very hot, but who needs it, and the balcony was pretty nice, I could watch the sun rise every morning from it.
It is very clean, the room is tiled, which has no charm, but at least it is clean.
They come and clean the room evey 2 days, and change the towels.
I stayed in the rooms accross the street, and that was perfect.

Free wi fi in the lobby only. Don't forget to try the massage chair !

No charm, no luxury, but super clean and big. I enjoyed it a lot.

you get what you pay.. its cheap.. air conditioning is up to 20 degree celsius only so we have to wait for the room to get cold. well there's no cable tv. beach is few minutes walk from the unit. when we were there, we experienced having no electricity twice. there's no backup generator for the motel. well i should not expect more for a cheap price.

We looked in a lot of places and AB is definitely value for money in comparison to some of the over priced or horrible places we saw.

We payed 120RM per night for a room on the beach side. For this we got a large, light room with two double beds, fridge, wardrobe, shelving and mirror. The bathroom is large with a great shower and loads of hot water. There is a TV but only has local channels.
A bonus is the balcony with table, two chairs and a drying rack. We even had a slight view of the sea!

It is very clean. They clean the room and change the sheets and towels every other day. One negative is they don't replenish toilet paper so we had to keep going to reception to ask for it, but not a big issue.

Unfortunately there is only wifi in the reception area, but that seems to be the case in many hotels on Cenang beach.

The staff aren't the friendliest we've met, but were helpful when we needed it.

Best bit was having a nice room practically on the beach. It took us about one minute from room to sun lounger as there is a staircase at the back of the motel that leads directly onto the beach.
It is also close to many shops and restaurants.
