“A standard 3-star provincial hotel, with a good location”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Generally speaking, Sakhon Nakhon is a destination for accidental tourists, rather than a destination in itself. If you're looking for a clean, reasonably-priced hotel, this is a safe bet. It lacks some charm and luxury amenities, which would probably be out-of-place in a city like this anyway. Nevertheless, we found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, and the 2 rooms we got were very clean, with fresh linens, pillows and towels. The amenities are sparse, but again that shouldn't be a surprise. The breakfast buffet was weighted toward Asian food, but it appeared fresh and none of us got 'tong sia' after eating there! Our visit was in March, and just like everywhere, there were lots of mosquitos in the lobby, room, and breakfast area.

Provincial capitals like this can be very charming because of the opportunity to see local culture up close, and this hotel's proximity to the night market was a big plus. Not only was there an abundance of tasty food (including a stall to the west of the hotel, near the street corner, which sold the most delicious mixed-fruit and carrot (!) smoothie I've ever had), and some typical stalls selling clothes, hair clips, fruit, etc. It wasn't noisy or seedy in the slightest, and it was fun to amble around for a while.

We looked at prices on Agoda, but got a slightly better deal by asking about the price in person. The value was good, but not exceptional.

This is my first time to Sakon Nahkon and this hotel is very comfortable with warm friendly staff, always greeting you. Rooms are clean, have everything you need, probably more 3 star standard to home in Australia but really good.

Only thing I don't like is the pillows, too big and hard.

Apart from that very happy

MJ Majestic is across the street from the food market and 200m from Big C and the gaudy night market which seem to be the cause of the rest of the city's evening demise. Although it was Sunday night, the original downtown area was mostly deserted and shuttered.

MJ has 2 blocks both which seem to have been recently refurbished. In one, the simple rooms, shower only, are b800. In the block with the reception rooms are B1200 and are more comfortably furnished (& flat TV) and have tubs. Room 503, like most rear facing rooms had a view of a factory roof which was noisy in the rain. The refurbished bathroom was very disappointing as, although with 'new bath', the water system was old. The first flow was brown and it would have taken a long, long time to fill the tub. The shower was also a disappointment as it provided 3 or 4 tiny shards of water. Seemingly no QC after the building works?

Breakfast was included, simple but OK.

Room Tip: front facing rooms may be better but check traffic noise. Also chceck faucet if you want a bsoak and...

We were suprised to find such a good room at a good price when the biggest festival of the year was on in Sakon Nakhon. Good clean room and all facilities were of a good standard. Can`t believe the receptionist remembered me after I had inquired there about three months before and she spoke good English.

Hotel is centrally located and has a good carpark which had easy access to the hotel. Breakfast was good but mainly Asian which was no problem for either of us. When we stay in Sakon Nakhon we will definitely be staying here again.

Situated right in town. Night Market and city shopping is a comfortable walking distance. Large car park. ALL the staff are very polite and courteous and for a long timer visitor to be called by your first name is nice. The hotel is very clean and all facilities excellent. English speaking reception. The rooms are spacious, homely, peaceful and quiet. Never ever have I had to make a complaint in any respect. This hotel gets a very big thumbs up from me.

The Majestic has a large parking area, which we found useful. The room we had was a deluxe room because the standard rooms were fully occupied by Chinese package tourists. The room was very large and was good value for the price we paid.

Just across the street from the hotel the Night Plaza market has excellent and cheap food. My pad thai would have fed 3 people and cost just 30 baht.

The following morning, as a result of arriving in the breakfast room after the Chinese tour group had picked the buffet clean, we didn't have a very fulfilling breakfast.

The Majestic has a slight identity problem. A lot of their items are labelled "MJ" and the hotel seems to be known by both names, Majestic and MJ. Still it's good value for money.

Staff were friendly enough. Lady (manager?) very friendly at front desk and speaks good English.

Stayed three nights. 550 baht/night, INCLUDES breakfast buffet (standard asian buffet). Spent a bit of time at the bar. If you are looking for companionship, I am certain the bartender can assist ;) although I'm not really into that scene. The "disco" was open. It had a live Thai rock band, not bad. Pestered a bit by freelancers and coyotes... but to others... might not be considered pestering :)

Room was large, very well lit, fridge, TV, decent view. Only issue is, no internet, unless there was an Ethernet connection somewhere I did not see. Mozzies in room for some reason. Cyberpoint wireless in the area, but weak connection, if you want to pay for that. Other than that, if you need internet, better have wireless broadband.

Near the vege night market. 7/11 across the street. Big C shopping down the street. Not much else to do.
