“Hotel Drive Inn, Dhanaulti”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We stayed for one night in this hotel on a family trip to Dehradoon, Masoori, Dhanaulti. We found the the hotel to be very neat and clean, The food at restaurant is good and hotel rooms are spacious and bathroom are clean and new.
The only drawback we found is the view from the hotel rooms is not very good, otherwise hotel is located on a nice location next to eco park.

Room Tip: choose a valley facing room

its a fairly decent place , given that we need that kind of comfort in a cold weather. the rooms r typically north indian in flavour with heavy quilts and v less ventilation . but if u are visiting dhanaulty then its a safe bet ...specially with family.

Room Tip: rooms facing the road are definately preferred as they have a decent view

Dhanaulti is a place which only those people would choose for stay who want to spend some time with the nature away from the chaos of the city. I chose this hotel after going through many options / feedback in the internet and was not very sure if the choice was good. After spending 4 nights to this hotel I think the choice was not bad. On the positive side I found all the things a visitor looks for - clean and well maintained rooms, clean and "well stocked" toilets, a good and efficient room service, prompt and quick clearance at the front desk, response for the concern, good food and a helpful and supportive staff. Electricity and credit card facility are two aspects where hotel performance is effected but they have no control on it as it is linked to the available infrastructure. There is a power backup but the timings are from 7-10 in the morning and evening in case of longer power cuts. The candles and the matchsticks are made available in the room. Do ensure to carry cash with you for payments as there are no ATMs in that area, the nearest one is available at Mussourie 26 Kms away. On some negative aspects the equipment in the gym were seen defective and there was no trainer seen available during my stay. Similarly the gaming room does not have the potential to keep children engaged. Both these places can be improved. Also availability of tea/coffee maker in the room could be provided considering the hotel has a 3-star rating. Personally I find the price a bit on the higher side.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at ground floor near the disco room. On first floor rooms 201-204 have no view; rooms 2...

We stayed in hotel for one night. Hotel is located on main Dhanaulti road but the view from the hotel is not very good. From room all I could see was huts and some dirt. Room service was fine and room size / ameneties were average. I didn't find it value for money.

Drive in Dhanaulti is a very good hotel among the handfull hotels at Dhanaulti . The hotels have all the basics , rooms are good , spacious and clean . The restaurant is on the ground floor and the food is good. We had ordered food with specific instructions and it was realyy good. There is a small discotheque and a gym . The only missing thing I felt was the rooms didn't had tea / coffe maker , which is expected in these kind of hotels .

Room Tip: Insisist on the vally side view rooms with big windows . During winter take the rooms on secon floor...

I was riding through Uttrakhand in July and had a long day and decided to stay in Dhanaulti and went looking for accommodation after hunting for a while i came to Hotel Drive Inn (which is in the middle of the town). They had a room free and it was for 4500 a night I had no choice but to stay there. The rooms were decent and clean the rooms and well maintained the tv has cable and there is hot water but no shower. The rooms smell a bit musty and have no view but served the purpose as I passed out and woke up in the morning to leave. I never ate in the hotel but there are few options outside. The staff was helpful and courteous and they have their own parking.
All in all it is a decent place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that face the road they have some view where the rest have none.
