We had trouble finding a place to stay overnight on Langkawi when we arrived without booking in advance. So we got to look at four other hotels and guesthouses in this price bracket before we found AB Motel. They were all grubby, dull, faded or downright disgusting.

So if you want to stay at Pantai Cenang on a budget, I can thoroughly recommend AB Motel. Our room was clean, decently furnished and (in 2011) almost new.

Room Tip: The hotel is in two halves - one on the beach, the other across the road. So if straight-on-the-beach is your priority make sure you are booked in on that side.
Stayed: February 2011, traveled as a couple

The hotel is really well located on the beach. It is great to be directly on the sand with view on the sea.
The hotel is cheap and does look as such but is it OK in herms of cleanness. No room service during your stay. No nice restaurant.
The beds are not comfortable.
But it is OK for the price you pay.

The staff here were really rude and unhelpful - this included staff who worked at their tour office and in their mini-marts. They only clean the rooms and provide fresh towels every second day. The room clean also did not include cleaning the bathroom which was tiny and became putrid and saturated because there is no separate shower. While the location was pretty good, there were jet skis and boats all over the beach with locals riding motor bikes and driving cars along the beach through the day making it impossible to lie comfortably on the beach or have a decent swim. I agree that you get what you pay for, however, I have stayed in MUCH better and cleaner for much less in SE Asia, including Malaysia. Better to go somewhere else, or to Thailand next time.

Room Tip: If you want to stay here, stay by the beachside. The only problem there is that locals tend to gather with their families and friends morning, night and weekends in the courtyard area and and take up the hotel seating and picnic areas. Think twice before staying here.

We stayed for 2 weeks at the AB Motel. We opted for the cheaper rooms on the other side of the road from the beach. At RM80 per night it was great value. Big room, clean, AC, fridge and hot water and a small outside seating area.
Only down side was the fact the T.V. only showed local channels.
