“Tolerable and inexpensive for Chennai”
Reviewed February 6, 2009

A friend booked this place for us, for only 2 nights, so it was tolerable. A few tiny roaches in sight, normally I would flee such a room, but under the circumstances, we stayed. The breakfast was slow and they kept running out of food. Generally, not a place I would return to or recommend.

  • Liked — Location close to beach
  • Disliked — The lack of cleanliness and the slow service

I have chosen this hotel for the low price and catagory, when I checked in, room was a piece of dirt, terrible poisonous smell, service was more like a gangster treating a hostage, my booking was for 7 nights, I used 2 nights at 2 different rooms,and ran away. my cell phone charger was stolen from my room, the owner/ manager threatened me to get "HIS POLICE " if I note missing my charger inside his hotel !!

  • Liked — location is ok
