Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Sakon Nakhon
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Large room, clean and fairly basic. Hanging rails as opposed to wardrobes. Old TV but works with no sky or satellite channels. Better rate using booking engines as walk in rates are slightly higher.No room safe but boxes available at reception which is a bit of a drag. Outside parking on frontage.Good breakfast buffet catering mainly to Asian but It is OK, coffee hot for a change! Lift to floors. No pool. Good location in town. Two single beds in standard room. Staff pleasant and friendly. Slightly annoying air con which was noisy. Also fan in bathroom was a bit loud.Ample shower space but no tub. You get what you pay for. Linen, beds and towels clean. Beds comfortable. Restaurant on ground floor with reasonable prices for food and beverages . Two waters in your fridge FOC and nothing else which must mean you can stock up from 7-11. No tea or coffee facilities. A few bathroom toiletries available. For a couple of nights it is fine and yes I would use it again. I wanted to stay at Dusit hotel but it was fully booked.

Room Tip: Ask to view rooms and make your own decision. Mine was facing roadside and a bit of noise as I hadn...

Sadly the location of this hotel has been totally let down by poor management and questionable hospitality practises. We had booked for 5 nights, but are leaving after 1 to another hotel, as for the rate there is better options in town now, and I fear unless something is done soon, others will find alternate choices now.

We had booked interconnecting rooms, 1 double and 1 twin, to suit our family, non smoking. Upong arrival we are informed that because we came late, they had no more available, so we have to have twin rooms only. This is even after we called 3 times to confirm the bedding arrnagement and inform them our plane did not arrive till 10pm.

The rooms are no very dated, and in need for major upgrade, they are basically a 2 star hotel now. Old cane furniture in the rooms, wooden furniture that is all cracking and easy to get splinters (warning for those with kids..!!) Bed is sagging in the middle from being too old, and the quilt/doona cover is one size too small, so hard to keep on your feet, or chest.

Bathrooms are VERY old and water is brown for awhile when started, and the presssure is terrible. 1 room of ours had an ok shower head, the other was useless, spraying the whole room, with only 50% going down onto the person.

The breakast is also sadly terrible now. They have 0630 - 1000 as breakfast, but we arrived at 0845 to already 2 empty bainmaries. When I asked when they were coming, the chef came and removed the whole unit. This happened as we sat there for each item, as it run out was totally removed. All you can have after about 0915 is fruit and toast. Even the juice is let to run out.

As the town grows, and more demand comes for quality, this hotel needs a new manager who cares about the guests, or a new owner who can do something better. The hotel did not even seem to care we were leaving to a competitor...??

Room Tip: Avoid booking any to be honest, look for another choice.

Was travelling around Thailand and it was getting late. Hence stayed at this hotel. The check-in was fast. Room is spacious and clean. Most importantly it is reasonable priced given the location it is in (Very Convenient). The breakfast was not bad. Would highly recommend anyone who happens to be in the area. .

Its the first time visited Sakon Nakhon. We chose MJ because the review of the location. And yes the location is good. Local market is just the opposite you can walk and enjoy eating local food. Room is so so but clean which is good enough. Breakfast is also normal.

Stayed here for 1 night only , travelling through.
Nice newly renovated hotel. Very good location in the middle of the town and very close to shopping opportunities as the night market is nearly next door.
Spacious room, flat screen TV with a few English spoken channels. Spotlessly clean, good bed, .excellent strong WiFi signal.
Pleasant restaurant, breakfast included

Room Tip: End of corridor rooms seems bigger

This large older style 3 star hotel is best for location. The large standard room has fridge, desk, TV, is carpeted, and with breakfast buffet included. Efficient check-in [even late at night as Nok Air has only one flight to Sakon Nakhon from Don Mueang airport, BKK, leaving at night]. A/C room is clean, bright, with street views. Comfortable bed. Breakfast buffet, in the hotels Orangina Cafe, was good consisting of typical Thai dishes of different stir-fry vegetables with chicken, pork, Vietnamese sausages, stir-fry fish, Thai fried rice, chicken rice porridge with many selections of spices, sauces, noodle stir-fry, fresh local fruits. Western section has corn-flakes, milk, coffee [real good], juices [especially the pandan, melon juices, so refreshing and different in the early morning], omelettes, salad bar, selection of fresh breads, butter, jams. The buffet spread is very adequate and enjoyable. If not included in room price, breakfast is 100Thb/pp - well worth it. Watch in comfort, the busy main street go by from the restaurant or just outside this cafe is a hotel kiosk serving many kinds of drinks - coffee, teas, shakes, frozen fruit juices, to enjoy at outdoor tables. Location is great - just opposite the night/day market where you can shop and also try the many other Thai foods cheaply. Walk to shopping centres - Big C, Expo Plaza, Nevada Multiple and 7-11 just across the hotel. Will definitely stay there again.

Further away is the Orawan Vietnamese Cuisine restaurant - 0818232499, a "surprising place" as it is very modern, clean, A/C, serves superb Vietnamese foods to eat in or outside tables by the road. Recommended is the Viet sausage with salad platter - amazing tastes.This place also sells different types of Thai/Viet "snack foods", and local wines, sweets, which is well worth a try.

This Hotel offers excellent value. The rooms are spacious and clean and the location is very good. My bed was comfortable, the a/c was working very well so was the fridge. Spacious bathroom with hot water. Buffet breakfast was included with my room and it had a decent choice of food.The accommodation options are very limited in Sakon Nakhon and this Hotel although not a 4 or 5 star provides what is required: A good room, comfortable bed, good service and location. I would definitely stay here again.
