“Mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2010

From the outside, it looked a pretty okay hotel. The price was Rm108 per night which at a small town like this, you would expect a bit better.

Once the elevators opened, you will get an assault of that odor very common to old unwashed carpets and smoking allowed rooms. The bed is curved and lacks support and the walls are stained with fingerprints.

No breakfast. To have breakfast, be prepared to pay another RM50.

Will not return.
Will not recommend.

The rooms are shabby, the bathroom is less than adequate, all of which I could have lived with had it non been for the reek of stale cigarette smoke in the rooms. The hotel does not differentiate between smoking and non-smoking rooms, which I discovered is also true of many other hotels in the area such as the sentosa regency.

I refused to stay at either hotel, and found myself a basic, clean and smoke free room at Star City instead for $250 ringgit per night. If you're a non smoker, book at a different hotel.

I stayed here for 2 nights at level 6 on my way to Hatyai. The room is clean & spacious but there is renovation going on on level 5, so it's quite noisy starting around 8.30am. There are also too many dogs in the neighbourhood, all the barking didn't help improve the noise situation.
At least the staff are friendly and helpful but will stay here only when the renovation is done.
