“Not a hotel at all, but rather a love motel!!”
Reviewed March 10, 2010

This is a horrible "hotel". I say "hotel" because it really is not a hotel at all. This is a love motel trying to disguise itself as a hotel. The hotel pictures are misguiding as the rooms themselves are really old and dingy. I found splotches on the walls and ceilings, which upon further inspection were dead bugs. This later made sense as I found bug spray in the room infront of the mirror. The bathroom was really big, but the sink smelled horrible as there was a drainage problem. There was mold on the ceilings in the bathroom too. Overall, I was absolutely horrified at this hotel. I paid 82,000 won/night for a double bedroom and I felt ripped off. A love motel in Korea would have cost half that and probably be even cleaner. As well, this "hotel" is not a 5 minute walk from Doksan station as the hotel website says. It is more like a 15 minute walk and the hotel is hidden behind other buildings, so it is really hard to find. The Doksan station area is also not a good area to be in. Being a single female traveling, I did not feel safe around that area at night on my own. Overall, please DO NOT STAY HERE, as it is really a waste of money!!!!!!!!
