Stayed here for 2 nights. First of all, if you don't have your own transport it's going to be very difficult for you. Which is what happened in my case! There's no restaurants or convenient stores in walking distance. Especially at night and if you're alone. So please consider this factor. The room which was given to me was nothing like what I saw in the picture they posted. Then I got to know only the day I checked out- there was another wing where the rooms were newly refurbished. However my bad, the receptionist chose to give me the old room despite there were plenty of availability 😒. Personally I found the corridor of rooms itself very spooky. Its one of the worst experience I've had. Its very cheaply priced and cheap is also what you get for an experience.

Wanted to explore Skudai area. Booked 2 family suites @S$29/rm. Surprised to find rooms are clean spacious. Aircon n toilets are in good working conditions n wifi (surprise surprise)excellent. Water cooler for hot n cold water in corridor helpful. Jus round the corner 3min walk are Skudai's 2 famous duck rice noodles eateries. Another 5 min away is Sunday pasar malam. Excellent value for a budget hotel. It is 18km frm JB city n Grab RM24. BTW Grab easily available.

Stayed in this hotel in June for 4 nights . NO CLEANING of room for 4 nights , on the 3rd night I borrowed a broom from reception to sweep my room floor by my self . I had to bring the towels to reception by myself to exchange for new ones. October i stayed 2 nights . First I booked one night twin room and second night I extended stay with new booking. Requested room change to king bed at 5pm , but was denied . They told me to pay dayuse for the twin room for 5 hours and then they will change to king bed using my new reservation . Meaning I have to pay 2.5nights for a 2 nights stay and second night check out at 12 noon. I didn't agree and I know that they are cheating me . Then at 9pm when I about to rest , reception lady called my room to say that they can change my room from first floor to 3rd floor. I decline as I have lost trust in their management and was also worried that they will charge me additional charges upon Check out. Again my room was not cleaned and I have to bring the towels to reception to exchange . The hotel management can verify by seeing their cctv whether did anyone came to my room to do any cleaning also can see me coming to reception for the towels exchange. There is no supervisory staff at this hotel and as such the staff always tell u about rules and play with their handyphone only. NO basic services provided at all . I told them that I will share my bad treatment to their management and they don't care at all. I don't like to complain but not providing a hygienic room and basic services is not acceptable. I also don't want other guests to suffer the same especially when they have children.

The front desk is well prepared and also able to check in us to rooms as soon as they arrives. Room looks kinda old and plain, the bed is clean and comfortable, too bad there is no window in the room. Unfortunately the heater was spoiled, the water was cold and was reported, front desk staff came but nothing can be done. The TV was bad as the signal not clear. Not recommended for long stay.
