I've been meaning to write a review since getting back in January, because I've used the reviews at tripadvisor as a benchmark for my accomodation on my travels, and I understand the importance of the community contributing to this brilliant resource; it is with that in mind that I am making my first contribution.
Our stay at this hotel was full of promise, we realized that this was a budget hotel, so weren't looking for anything exceptional, further we'd spent the night before at the Hotel Cowie which was disastrous. The owner Raj appeared offered a veneer of excellent service, and was all to eager to accommodate us, though he never let us forget he was doing us a favour.
We got a dingy corner room, with no bathroom or toilet for the not-so-bargain price of Rs3600 per night. We stayed for two nights and during the time, there were constant issues with the water, the linen was cleanish and we had many a cold shower. On the night of our departure we checked out early and asked whether it would be possible to shower and collect our luggage at a later time; Raj was all too pleased to accomodate us again, which somewhat pacified us about the horrid room. After our shower, we were told that we would need to pay Rs1000 for the use of the shower and Rs300 for the storage of the bags, we were told we had 5 minutes to shower and 5 minutes to change in the store room and then we were also asked for Rs1000 for the non-ac taxi to the airport which Raj offered to arrange.
I could not help feeling that we were absolutely ripped off during our stay at the Hotel Moti, it is in my opinion an overpriced mediocre experience at best, while the location is a good one and quite accessibly, the underhanded behaviour of the hotel's owner, gives new meaning to the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. BEWARE!
