We spent three nights in this hotel. My boyfriend had to work in the area and I was along as a guest. There aren't many choices in Madras and this was arranged by the company.
It's located just off the main highway, but our room was in the South building next to the pool and away from the road so there was no road noise. The room itself was large with a microwave, fridge, table, chairs, and decent sized bathroom. The decor was all old and 60's motel, but seemed serviceable. The only modern items were a nice flat screen tv mounted on the wall - cable included HBO - and what seemed to be very ugly, but newly replaced carpet. There was also free wifi that seemed to work ok.
They boast a free continental breakfast, but that consisted of pre-packaged danishes and mini plain bagels plus some coffee. When we checked in, someone in our group was told to come early to the lobby because they were running out of food (which they knew the day before?).
The walls are paper thin so you can hear your neighbors, but the worst part was that you can hear the drunks out at the pool who stay out well past the 10pm closing time. After one night of this we called the front desk and asked who to talk to if it happens again since desk staff leaves at 10pm. They told us to call the cops?! Seriously? It's your hotel, but you want us to call the cops? They said it would be trespassing so if we had a problem to call the police and provided the number to the local dispatch. Unbelieveable.
The next night was a weekday so there were no more drunks, but as we were getting ready to sleep we spied a strange black small beetle-like bug in our bed. I had killed two others in the bathroom, but it made for a restless night.
The only good thing about the place is that we didn't pay for the room, but at a $65 corporate rate, I think there are better options to be had in Madras.
