To me, it was a very good room and value.
Of course it's simple, but the room is big with plenty of room for your things, big mirror, hangers ...
The water was not very hot, but who needs it, and the balcony was pretty nice, I could watch the sun rise every morning from it.
It is very clean, the room is tiled, which has no charm, but at least it is clean.
They come and clean the room evey 2 days, and change the towels.
I stayed in the rooms accross the street, and that was perfect.

Free wi fi in the lobby only. Don't forget to try the massage chair !

No charm, no luxury, but super clean and big. I enjoyed it a lot.

you get what you pay.. its cheap.. air conditioning is up to 20 degree celsius only so we have to wait for the room to get cold. well there's no cable tv. beach is few minutes walk from the unit. when we were there, we experienced having no electricity twice. there's no backup generator for the motel. well i should not expect more for a cheap price.

We looked in a lot of places and AB is definitely value for money in comparison to some of the over priced or horrible places we saw.

We payed 120RM per night for a room on the beach side. For this we got a large, light room with two double beds, fridge, wardrobe, shelving and mirror. The bathroom is large with a great shower and loads of hot water. There is a TV but only has local channels.
A bonus is the balcony with table, two chairs and a drying rack. We even had a slight view of the sea!

It is very clean. They clean the room and change the sheets and towels every other day. One negative is they don't replenish toilet paper so we had to keep going to reception to ask for it, but not a big issue.

Unfortunately there is only wifi in the reception area, but that seems to be the case in many hotels on Cenang beach.

The staff aren't the friendliest we've met, but were helpful when we needed it.

Best bit was having a nice room practically on the beach. It took us about one minute from room to sun lounger as there is a staircase at the back of the motel that leads directly onto the beach.
It is also close to many shops and restaurants.

It is a basic motel & is perfect if you only require a place to sleep & put your luggage. The room we were staying in had 2 double beds & a basic toilet without any toiletries or towels.

The advantage of this motel is it's right next to the beach & is very cheap compared to the others. We paid 120 RM/night for the double room.

Your sleep will suffer if you have noisy neighbours.

Room Tip: There are 2 AB motels & only one of them is next to the beach.

We paid 100 RM per night for a ac room. To be fair, we looked around quite a bit but most places were fully booked or quite a bit more expensive. I would likely stay here again, but I can't say the same for my girlfriend. The room was not super clean, the staff wasn't the most friendly and the bed was only average. Lots of rooms here though, which makes it a choice when you don't book in advance. Various different price points as well. The location is also pretty good.
