We cannot understand all these negative reviews here on TripAdvisor. Either the owner has changed or he has learned from the bad reviews. We stayed for 4 nights and it was perfect for the price. The room was very clean and big. Aircon and internet was working very well and the room had also a fridge and a kettle. The maid changed the bedsheets and towels after 2 days. The owner helped us also to print out our ferry and bus tickets. The environment is nice prepared with a lot of greenery. The pool is big enough for a short refreshing, but there were only 2 sunbeds. Next to the Motel there are a scooter rental (very cheap, 25RM for 1 day), a yummy (but expensive) breakfast place as well as a laundry and two good and extremely cheap restaurants. We can highly recommend this place!

In that respect its location is good. Beaches are at walking distance and there is a good food outlet right in front.The reception is not open 24 hours so you will have a problem if you want to check-in at late hours. You don't get daily room service.Rooms are of good size and comfortable and at a quite place. Will recommend the place to anyone on budget. cross the road is fave hotel.

This budget hotel is located at the end of Jalan Pantai Cenang, same end as the Aseania Hotel. This motel is a laundry shop at the front where the reception is. We booked through Agoda, so check in was smooth. What we liked about the place: Near Tomato Nasi Kandar (cheap Indian Muslim restaurant or as we call it in Malaysia 'kedai mamak'). There's also a Malay restaurant that opens on the night. A burger stall open on the night just on the side of the road. It's a quiet place away from the main area of Pantai Cenang. Spacious room and everything functioning well. Growing up in SEA, insects, mosquitoes, ants are inevitable. We bought a repellent from the shop which cost about rm5.50 for a small can. Just spray the bathroom or outside before you go to bed if you're worried about bugs. Wifi works well during our stay. We really liked the place! What we didn't like: Unfortunately, they are having a minor renovation (yes, there's some noise) behind the laundry shop close to the motel area. They work quite slow, so who knows when they will finish or how much more they need to do. If it weren't for that, we would have stayed longer. Don't worry they don't start until 9 or 10 am. And they don't work til late. If you're up early, it won't bother you and if you're back around dinner time. They've stopped. But if you're having a day of rest in the room, you might hear them working. Other than that, there's nothing else we didn't like about the place. We were happy for what we paid for.

The hotel photos, which are advertised, are from the years ago. Terrible rooms with dirt all over. Insects in the holes in the walls. The worst hotel I ever seen, cockroaches all over the place and totally anti-sanitary condition.
