We stayed for one night. Misleading ad by roadside. The actual room rate is about RM50 more than the large "special rate" signboard. The receptionist said the special rate applies everyday of the week, except on that day we check in. Hmmmm...
Our room was uncarpeted. Settling in, we soon found that it was terribly dirty. The windows ledges and wall wooden trimmings looks like it has never been wiped for a year. The floor tiles are oily. Yes, oily - did they used a mop from the kitchen? The foot carpet beside the sofa was dirty, sticky and greasy. Well, at least we are glad the room is not fully carpeted! Blanket was greasy and threadbare. Moulds on bathroom's sink and shower glass partitions edges were not green, but has turned black.
The reason for this sheer lack of housekeeping standards seemed to review itself the next morning. A team of workers went from room to room to change the bedsheets and towels, watched by a supervisor at the door. These did not look like hotel staff. This hotel sub-contracts it's housecleaning work to another company?
There is a narrow and short swimming pool. Many tiles were missing. Water smell strongly of chlorine, an indication water is seldom changed and perhaps reasons while the missing tiles were not fixed.
At least the breakfast was free and for all.
