“Worst Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This is the worst that I have stayed recently. The room manual keys dont work. And they have a swipe card for use by the hotel staff..but they give you a manual key. I asked for a swipe card . They said the swipe card is only for house keeping and they cannot spare this. Ofcourse they are courteous enough to say that they will repair the manual key next day. I say who needs it for next day..I will check out the next day.So now i am left out with the only option of calling hotel staff whenever i need to enter my room. And at 11pm i realise that i cannot switch off the bed lamp. Call the hotel staff..he tries for sometime and removes the bulb..Best avoided if you can. I stayed in room no.209.

Room Tip: Ask if room key is working and if all the lights are working properly.

Came for a meeting to patiala and didnt had reservation. so checked in EQbal Inn. Its a lovely property. ambience is very relaxing . i stayed in room 104 and it was the best in all manners. totally value for money. i ordered food at 11:30 and it was very delicious butterchicken and butter naan. Staff is very friendly.

I was here for my official trip. its such a blunder hotel with blunder staff.. they dont have trained housekeeping staff. worst part of this hotel is its on highway with no eating joint nearby and hotel food is really very unhygenic, my friend got food poisioning after eating their food. this is unsafe for women too. i actually slept after putting my big suitcases near the main door.
MY ADVICE - Dont stay with this bakwass hotel !!!!!!!!!!

Can u imagine the plight of 02 ladies when they realise presence of a stranger in their room at 4:15 am? The stranger was none other than the hotels Housekeeping Supervisor who used the master key to access the room and a tool to unlink the bolt. Yes, please never stay here, we still don't know the intent of that psycho man named Kuldeep but guys beware. If we didn't wake up in time, god knows what would have happened.
