I will admit that my expectations were higher than normal for a two-star hotel based on the reviews. I was still pleasantly surprised at just how nice the room was. Service was excellent, not batting an eye when we walked in sweaty, tired, and covered in insect repellent (the showers are really nice, by the way).
Despite being located right off the highway, the hotel still has a decent buffer of trees and hills, blocking out traffic noise. The room air-con was reasonably quiet and effective, and the mattress was firm and comfortable. Breakfast had more options than I'd expected, and all three of us were quite satisfied with our stay.
In conclusion, I'd bump this hotel up to three stars. It's not the Four Seasons, but it isn't trying to be. What it is is a decent hotel, with the few extra touches that make it a really comfortable place to stay.
