Family of 4 (kids 10, 12) stayed there for 2013 new year eve for a week.
This hotel would easily get 4 stars in some European countries and as many wrote - great value for money.
Located on main road the location is perfect to explore both Sharjah (taxi USD3-10 to basically any interesting spot on the map) and Dubai (USD10 to Metro green line).
Breakfast and dinner buffets are good enough and much better than any food court in the malls. Dinner buffet is open till 11PM which is great when returning from day trips.
Reasonably priced 24-hour room food service yet not tried those.
There is big Lu-Lu hypermarket just 5-10 mins walk from hotel if you prefer shopping for food.
Never tried local eateries but their are plentiful and cheap within walking distance.
Sauna and gym are both on 1st floor and adequately equipped.
Rooms are equipped with coffe/tea station refilled daily (except water).
There is also hotel shuttle bus services to:
* local public beach (no infrastructure) 3 times/day for free
* Dubai mall: 3 times/week for USD8 both ways
Summary - this hotel is good if you actively exploring the area and use it for basic needs.
Don't go there if you are looking for stylish beach hotel, relaxed vacation or some advanced in-house facilities or services.More
