Unless you're actually due for a business meeting somewhere in the hotel's direct vicinity, this establishment is unfortunately plain out of luck. Strewn in the middle of relative nowhere, whatever you save on accommodation you will easily spend in taxis trying to get to anywhere resembling civilization.
Other than its abysmal location, the rooms are relatively clean. Toiletries are sparse, and they will charge you for toothpaste or toothbrushes (anything other than their foul-smelling, alcohol drenched foam soap basically costs money). False advertising includes a promise of free wi-fi, but that ONLY works if you have a laptop, and then it's VERY spotty, and even with an ethernet cable, it's prehistorically slow. So smart phone warriors beware - there is NO internet access whatsoever for you, other than 2 ancient PCs in the lobby with buggy browsers and weird, uncomfortable pedestals that force you to stay standing.
They have vending machines on every floor (because the restaurant closes pretty early), but the vending machines don't take paper currency. You can ask for change from reception, but it sort of defeats the purpose of "convenience." The restaurant is small and the breakfast selection (AED35 for cold-only food, AED55 for the "continental" hot breakfast buffet) is mediocre at best.
You can't even make outside calls from your own room without buying an Etisalat card from reception (and they charge you an AED5 handling fee for the AED20 card - what a rip-off!)
Overall, it is cheap, but it's also very poor. Premier Inn should be ashamed of themselves to be honest.
