“A good place to crash in Salem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

The parking lot is slightly far from the entrance to the hotel, but apart from that, its a value for money place. Efficient staff but the airconditioning takes a while to kick in. and with Salem weather, it can be a drag!

Even so, it's a pretty neat place to stay.

I recently went to stay at this hotel in Salem. It was a pretty decent place for a small city like Salem. The rooms are really well maintained. They even had locker facilities in all rooms. We loved the lawn in the 4th floor. The complimentary breakfast buffet is in par with star hotels in Chennai. The only problem is that you don't get hot water here. The geysers aren't working. Even if you call room service, they keep promising you that they will bring it in 5 minutes, but you will never get it until you check out. Otherwise, you can give 5 stars for this hotel.

Room Tip: We were in 404, 405, 505, 507 & 508. All rooms were really good. You have a open lawn in the 4...

I did not stay at this hotel but did get shown several rooms on the property. It seemed like a tired old building that had not been kept up. The rooms were not attractive and definitely not updated. There were service panels off in each hallway we went down, and in one room. Looked like maintenance was a big problem. I would not stay at this property.

Go there only if you don't find any other alternatives. Not worth the money charged. Rooms are very small, not very clean, but the location of the hotel is good. Its Ok if you just want to stay the night or so, but not worth going for a comfortable stay.

While coming back from Rameshwaram we stayed here. The purpose was to visit Yercaud hills as well. Though little expansive for what it offers, it had a nice restaurant with friendly staff. We did not see manypeople there though. However the food was great.
The roooms were big and clean. Nice bed and linen'.
Little pricy but OK if you want to releive from the hectic tourist day.
