We stayed at Jewel Rock for a night in March. We were three families and they were happy to provide us adjacent rooms on the top floor.
Booking was over the phone; and when we arrived, check-in was quick. What was surprising was they didn't even ask for an advance amount at check-in. Rooms were reasonably clean, though could have been better. Bathrooms strongly reeked of disinfectant and were strictly OK.
Parking seemed to be a problem if you return late in the night - especially on Sundays. However, unlike Hotel Surya across the street (which had car parking on the street), Jewel Rock had parking facility inside the hotel compound.
We didn't eat at the hotel and preferred to dine out.
On the whole, it is an average hotel. Probably still the best in Shimoga after Royal Orchid.
