I know there aren't many options to stay at Jawalamukhi, and this Hotel is at a very nice location as it is very close to the temple. but then they have not maintained the hotel properly.
The food is just about OK, the rooms are clean but not neat the bathrooms are large but scary with insects and spider in it.
The bus stand is very close to this hotel, as a result you hear a lot of noise from the street. the service is slow and the staff is hardly interested in working.
only plus point is the location and that they have ample parking space in the courtyard.

Room Tip: the A/C rooms are less affected by the sounds from the street

Hotel lokeall HPTDC hotels is well loacted near the Famous Jwala Devi temple. The recption looks dull but rooms are spacious and clean with heater functional. Nice discounts given in off season. I stayed in suite room and it was really worth the money. Toilet was very clean and elegant , very much unexpected from HPTDC.
Food was good and services upto the mark. The staff was courteous as well.

This is a pilgrim place, so don’t expect any fancy hotels. This too is no exception. It is a Government-run hotel, and like all such properties, which they have in prime locations, bears a dilapidated look.
However, this is the best amongst the lot in Jwalaji, and value for money.
The rooms are big, the sheets okay, the towels they changed, upon request, to better and cleaner looking ones. The bathroom had insufficient light and one could hear the person, in the next bathroom, violently clearing his throat!
The up keep, of the room and the hotel is below average.
We had one meal in the hotel (after scourging, outside, this seemed to be the best option available), and the food was good, tasty and served promptly. The room service was okay and upon request, they arranged to get us the English-style tea.
Well, cannot blame the employees: this is a Government –run hotel, so someone in the Tourism Ministry will have to sit up and spruce up their properties, which enjoy fabulous locations, but suffer from poor upkeep.
The location of the hotel is very convenient and just two mins walk to the temple area. The house keeping needs lessons in the field.
Still, while in Jwalaji, this is the place to stay. Don’t go to any other place: You are here for the darshan, not on a holiday/ vacation.

We had a very pleasant at the hotel. We stayed there for one night in May, 2012. Weather was hot but AC in the room made it better. Rooms were very spacious

The staff at the hotel was very courteous and their service was very quick. Their menu had lot of options and they had no specific kitchen timings which made it better. Their menu also included south Indian items like Idli, Vada and Dosa in the menu as snacks which was very enjoying. Taste of food was also very good.

The location of hotel is also very good location. It is very very near the shrine.

Overall, It was a good enjoying stay.

Room Tip: Choose the bets available rooms in HPTDC hotels. Don't worry, they will be value for money.

Stayed there in may 12. Biggest plus is location. It is very close to temple complex, in the market, very near to Bus stand and Hospital. Rooms are big and spacious with average cleanliness. Room service was good. Food was good and hygienic [ which is difficult to find in this area]. Overall stay was comfortable and satisfactory. One should stay here as there are not many other good options.

Situated close to the Jwalaji temple, this property maintained (or rather ill-maintained) by the HPTDC is less than an average place to stay. The rooms were big and spacious, however cleanliness was lacking. The sheets were dirty and the bed not comfortable. I stayed in the standard double bed air cooled rooms and ended up paying 10% luxury tax above the cost of the room. One should checkout the other accommodation available in the area before choosing to stay here.
