“Nice, Simple and Clean”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I stayed on this hotel for one night. I arrived late night and the owner was at the counter. He treated us very corteous. He showed our rooms and showed us how to use the ammenities, since he obviously noticed I'm not Korean. Nice room, clean, hot water, great bed...there's actually a fully working PC on the room with internet and with a western type keyboard.

I am a frequent corporate traveler and was pleasantly surprised to be "bumped" from my on base lodging reservation to be put up in the Hotel Western right outside Kunsan's back gate, Gunsan, South Korea. The owners live on site and are the friendliest, kindest, most helpful people I've ever met. The rooms are very clean, modern, and decorated to the hilt with all the latest electronics including a flat screen tevelevision, microwave, high-speed Internet (10Mbps download speeds), refrigerator, desktop computer with flat screen monitor, -even a electronically controlled toilet -yes toilet with a built-in seat warmer and bidet controls. In case you don't know what a bidet is, a bidet is commonly used in Europe and resembles a toliet bowl without the flushing mechanism but with a water spout strategically angled to wash your private parts. The marble tiling and chrome fixtures add to the charm of this privately owned hotel. There''s even a pool table, a couple of golf club swinging nets, and common area kitchen on the first floor. Highly recommended!

If you have to go to Kunsan Air Base, this is the place to stay. (Might be the only place to stay, but that's OK.) This family run hotel provides excellent personalized service. The rooms are large and well appointed; big TV, comfortable bed, fridge and microwave in-room computer (or just hook up your own). There's also a full kitchen off the lobby for guests to use. The restaurant was closed and not much to eat nearby, so bring something for the microwave. The owners and staff bend over backwards to make sure you're happy. I won't consider any place else next time I need to visit the area.

Mr. and Mrs. Oh are great hosts. I stayed here for 3 months in 2002 and another 5 months in 2003.

Daily housekeeping service, internet access (although Mr. Oh was still working on that when I was here), and comfortable, if plain, rooms make it a nice stay.

For extended stay customers, the Ohs will do your laundry. Mrs. Oh collects it in the morning without being told and it's ready in the evening. No charge either.

Very friendly people.

Motel Western was much better than expected. Two "high maintenance" co-workers said this was a great place to stay. That was good enough for me. Great location to Kunsan Air Base for visiting or work. Four story hotel with elevator. Owners live on site and owned for 10 years. Restaurant/coffee shop/game room off lobby. Parking on site. Outstanding broadband Internet connection in room. My room supplied with desk top computer, but used my laptop. Power converter setup to change 240V to 110V if needed. Room had large frig and microwave. Not all rooms have microwaves. Daily maid service. Free laundry. 42 inch TV in room. Remote controls for A/C and TV. Hard wood floor in room so follow the Korean custom and remove your shoes. Slippers provided. Heated toilet seat in bathroom.
