“Bikers favorite watering hole.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

I have always ridden into Pondicherry every time on my Royal Enfield and have found this hotel very convenient because of its location. A Double bed room has affordable tariff and has all the creature comforts a biker would need after the tiring journey. Staff is pretty efficient and they have woken up to receive us even at odd hours at night. Rooms are clean. Only issue is the lack of restaurant in the annex wing else that would have made us lazy on the holiday. This has now become our preferred choice to stay in Pondicherry over past few visits.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms are the best.

A trip to Pondichery is always exciting when going in a group, but something that has actually enhanced our trip was our stay at Executive Inn. A very neatly designed property located right in the heart of the city with all the important places a stones throw away. The rooms were aptly sized, well equipped and absolutely spotless. The breakfast buffet had a large variety of spread and is something that can make people crave for more. We being hotelier ourselves, were amazed at the quality of service rendered to us. The service was like instantaneous and that is something that actually stands apart. A very special mention to the Front Office staff Senthil for his courteous and excellent service. The Director of Executive Inn Ms. Beena went out of her way and gave us a nice send off gift which just melted our heart off. Overall a hotel with a big heart that certainly does not leave a hole in your pocket.

We stayed at the annexe building which is roughly 150 meters away from the main building...we had absolute privacy and peaceful stay...though there is no room service in the annexe, but you have plenty of food options near by...the staff is very helpful...they can also arrange cycle/scooter at nominal rent for you to roam around pondy...Its a no frills place which is safe and gives us comfort and privacy...the french side of pondycherry is easily walkable from this place...Good value for money at rs 1200 per day.

This is a wonderful property located very near to the beach,in the french area..and walking from aurobindo ashram..and very close to the market area..had seacrhed almost all hotels on the web and personally ...and location wise ,no other hotel can beat this one..now the hospitality..the owner Ms bina is of a rajasthani origin and goes by their tradition of hospitality(padharo mhaare des)..she is an excellent manager of the hotel..u will not be able to find a piece of dirt..any mosquito..anything dirty in the hotel..u can try spending the whole day searching for that..that is their cleaniness standard..she personally takes rounds every now and then to check everything.. the front ofs staff is highly cooperative...and they changed our room to a balcony room on request without any hassles...the restaurant again is very good..hygenic..u feel like eating more and more here..even if u are not hungry..overall experience was excellent in this hotel which hasa made the trip memorable..a small pice of advice for ms bina if she coulld add some rajastahni dishes to the menu ,it will be a super bonus..and yes dont forget taking her guidance on shopping ,places to eat ,places to visit..she has an unbiased and superb opinion on everything which she shares freely and this will help a lot...on her advice we shopped from muthu silks which was a great advice ..and went to auro shikha shop by ashram and the handmade paper shops..which most of the travellers would not know even ..thanks to executive inn..would love to refer it to frends and family and wud love to come here again too...the only thing is they lack a pool ..otherwise this is a 5 star standard hotel..

Room Tip: pl take a balcony room..the view is very good

We stayed there for 3 days and loved it. The beautiful promenade is a 5 min walk and a CCD outlet is right across the sleepy old lane. The balconies attached to the rooms are a delight and so is the food served by the kitchen. My suggestion, book directly by calling them and delight yourself. RS

I use to travel nearly 25 days every month and have stayed at many hotels across India. My stay at Pondicherry Executive Inn last 2 months (Sep '11 till today) is truly a very pleasant and memorable experience specifically owing to the fact that I feel at home. All their ambience, location, rooms, services, food, amenities, staffs etc. - overall truly the best value for money as well as personalized attention from the hotel management too. This would always be my choice for any of my friend or relatives visiting Pondicherry
The hospitality were we found nowhere, taking care as like our relatives. The food is also made as per our requirement.
