“Decent clean rooms at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We stayed on the road side for RM80 the rooms are large and clean and good value. Although you may not have the best view from the terrace for that price, it is generally quiet and just a few steps from the beach, and there are plenty of places to eat and a new shopping centre within a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: The RM80 rooms are in blocks of two with connecting doors, useful for people travelling in a group.

I am not one to write reviews but I've used trip advisor and have taken advise from the reviews on the website so it's my turn to give back! AB Motel on the beach side room B1. Excellent! For 120 ringgit a night we could not fault it! The accommodation is in the best location and the beach on our door step. We didn't spend much time in the room but when we did it was perfect. Very clean, aircon worked very well and the shower was lovely. Location was just the best and made it all worth it. I booked online via email 6 months prior, did not have to prepay or even put down a deposit. To be honest I was actually surprised when they were expecting us on arrival- AB Hotel must have very loyal customers. Love love love service, value, cleanliness and location. Highly recommend.

It was the best option ever to select AB model for 80 RM per night and staying right on the beach. We opted for the suits across the road the price will go higher if you select the ones on the beach. But the beach was just a few feets away from the suits and its very peaceful, silent and beautiful. The room had TV, Fridge and AC with electric hot water supplier in washroom. It was clean and perfect right at the beach and close to many food places in town. You can spend your day at beach and go to hop in the local small market place of town. The motel has no food place of its own but there are many around including indian, malay, chinese and continental.
highly recommended.

Room Tip: Select across the road for cheaper price.

120 RM for Family Room is very cheap, cause the location is at the center of cenang beach, just a few step you can touch the wave of the sea, Family Room is recommended for 4 pax, 2 queen bed inside the room, TV is only 1-2 local channel, Chalet B 8 until 10 is Facing The Sea, my Chalet is G1, this room at the new Building, but not really facing the sea, The Main Problem in this motel is Mosquito, bring your mosquito lotion or hunt the mosquito if you wanna sleep well

Tomato Resto is the Recommended one, cheap and tasty, n so many kind of food they serve
Orkid Ria Seafood is Delicious, but not cheap
Go to the Duty Free Shop next to Underwater World, buy some wine, whisky, Chocolate n Cigaret, the price is very-very cheap compare to everywhere in malaysia

Room Tip: B 8-10 facing the sea, G area is @ the New buiding, G1 is the nearest to the sea

Small room with a porch right next to the beach which is nice, Shower and toilet both in the same squaremeter is interesting but you get what you pay for. Nice budget option. Reggea bar with friendly people only a stonethrow away on the beach.
