1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2010

I went with the intention of staying for two nights but checked out after one. The room was old but adequate but when I asked about the karaoke as per their brochure I was told we do not have. I asked about a massage, what a rip off price so that went to. Its a shame because its a roomy building but badly in need of a BIG makeover and at least one staff that can speak a little English. I didn't take any photos of the place but whatever you do DO NOT BELIEVE THEIR BROCHURE

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

I went to Nongkai with my family - my brother, mum, mum's friend, 8 years old daugther, 4 years old nephew - for my brother business. He was invited to be a teacher at Konkaen University, Nongkai Campus. We went to see him, and planed to across border to Vientiane, Laos in the morning. We booked one night in Nongkai at The Tip Hotel from internet as it's near the border, and close to Tesco Lotus Store.

After checking in, and going up by the elevator, I walked thru the corridor to my room. The carpet looked dirty. Many area got drying mark. It's disgusting. The most terrible was its stink and musty smell. I must ask the staff to bring air refreshment sprey to blow all area of my room.

Bathroom looked old and narrow. Bathtub got some dirty stain, some broken area. I must be carefully when taking bath as the broken bathtub looked quite sharp.

It's just one night. I woke up in the very early morning, and checked out immediately. I will not be here again anymore.

Stayed August 2010, traveled with family
