The hotel is more of a place to stay for the MotoGP and not a place to have fun as there are very little things to do in and around the hotel. The pool isn't big enough to do laps, just good for dips. There aren't many English channels on the cable TV and ESPN isn't available. Wifi in rooms are slow and you have to wait a few hours to get connected and then be disconnected all of a sudden. You need to go down to the lobby to have a secure wifi.
If you're on a budget, you can always try the local food around the area. There are three local restaurants that's just a walk from the hotel. There's a KFC just in front of the complex, you just need to walk around to look for it. There's also a nearby convenience store for your water supplies. No need to worry about toiletries, the hotel provides, shampoo, soap, and toothbrushes.
Getting to Sepang International Circuit is possible through a shuttle provided by the hotel. It costs around 40MYR (2 way). You can also get a taxi and split it with other hotel goers. The great thing about the hotel is its just 8kms away from the track. But then that's just about it. You can stay here probably for the Saturday-Sunday run of the Race and spend the rest of your vacation in KL where there are a lot of things to do.
