I have stayed in this hotel several times, but this is the first time, I got a room in 3rd floor (room #3023). It is a new room with new facilities (fridge, iron and table, flat screen tv, etc, etc. Washroom is clean & nice. Compared to the rooms in 1&2 floors the rooms in 3rd floor (room #3017 onwards) rooms are awesome. Hotel must improve its breakfast, since they provide the same menu everyday... Prices for room & restaurent dining at swan garden are really really expensive, price must be revised. Overall all I enjoyed the stay at Swan Garden PG.

Stayed here at first due to emergency. Next stay because the first stay uncovered a hidden gem in industrial surrounding. Rooms are bang for the bucks. Clean, well equipped. My family room with 2 king sized beds, bathtub, flat-screen Tv for just rm168. Near to Johor Port, Pasir Gudang industrial area, Tesco, McDonald's, banks.

We booked high mid range rooms which gave us two double beds and plenty of space. Great price and well located out of the hustle and bustle of the city, but just a very reasonable Grabb ride when you want to go to town. There are heaps of great food options nearby and dont miss the onsite breakfast. Happy friendly staff, very comfortable and it wont break the budget. What more could you want?

Stayed here as a couple in July for 2 nights. Decor is simple and easy on the eye. Very proffesional and friendly staff. Room spotless and spacious enough. Roof top bar was nice for a beer and good view of the town.
Would stay again if in the area.

I walked into the cheap 2 star hotel like any other ordinary day, hoping for an ordinary early night sleep. At the reception counter, I stood to wait for the receptionist to realise I was there. Finally, she looked up, and recognised me. She smiled.

I said, wondering to myself what else I might be doing there, that I am checking in, while handing her my identity card.

She said, with a big smile as if trying to be sweet, "Again?"

I couldn't help myself. "Well, I didn't come here to see you!"

She sort of laughed at my comment. I think she tried to figure out whether she should be embarrassed or not. I just wanted her to give me my room key.

She spent a good few minutes tapping into the keyboard, checking against my identity card. As each minute passed, I thought I should be getting closer to getting my room card. I needed the toilet, quite soon.

She offered me a room with no window. I asked whether I could get a room with a window. She then offered me a room with a single bed. I asked if I could get a room with a double bed. Then she said the rooms with double beds are all taken. I said, fine, I'll have the room with the window then. She said those are also all taken.

This is when I began to think this must be an ordinary day. Because this is an ordinary conversation. Because ordinary conversations involve ordinary people and ordinary people are just stup*d.

She then said the room rate will be some amount. I said fine. I really needed to use the toilet to let go of my ordinary sh*t, by then.

She then realised I had already booked online for a room and she had just wasted the last 15 minutes looking for a room that was already allocated to me. There was absolutely no need to look for a double bed, windowed or unwindowed room. Someone else had already done the job.

She's not an ugly girl. Big eyes, sharp chin, small frame, an average height. But her makeup was so thick she must have applied them with a rather big paintbrush or a mini-roller. You could easily tell she was hiding some bad skin and that she aspires to be whiter than humanly possible. I am sure makeup comes in many colours but surely milky white is not one of them? Or maybe 'Curd and Whey'. Or, dried up plaster of paris?

What do I know.

I got my room key. She fiddled with the credit card machine but it's so ordinarily dull, my mind had turned off by then. It had had enough of trying to observe the insipidly mundane. Either that, or it was having a mini-seizure induced by the dullness of this clumsy, unprepared, caked-face, long haired girl, who clearly preferred to be somewhere else fixing her long nails.

I felt sad for her though. As she must have felt sad for me too. Here I am, in a certified two-star hotel, alone in a strange city, late at night, eager to go straight into my room to take a big smelly dump. And there she was, struggling to do a simple task at a simple job, hoping that someone decent would marry her soon, clearly for her looks and nothing else, so she didn't have to work here anymore.

I wished her luck, silently in my mind for I didn't want to ever interact with her again. Please get married so the hotel could hire someone else with a bit more intelligence, someone less ordinary. We both would be so much happier.

I booked a 4 bedroom but only get 3 bedroom instead with 2 queen and 2 single whereas we have 8 adult and 2 kids. So there is not enough bed to accomodate us. The hotel only compensate us with 20% discount because of this. But its ok with me because the location is great. But the worst terrible unexceptable thing that happen is that there is no bloody hell TV in the room. What kind of hotel is this...Even 1 star hotel have a tv or at least a tiny whinny tv in it.

The Executive, Evelyn Fernandez has offered an outstanding service during my stay at this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She puts her heart into it in doing a good job. Personally I think the hotel is very fortunate to have a staff member such as Evelyn. She also has provided an extra mile service when it was her off day and emergency situation.

Later I met up the hotel manager, Aebin Tai in person. She introduced me to her family members. She also has invited me to the hotel christmas party. They feed me with delicious food. They are humble and nice people.

i highly recommend any travellers to stay at Swan Garden Hotel.

This is exactly the type of hotel you want when staying in the area! The front desk is very friendly and efficient and polite, the free breakfast at the lovely restaurant next-door was very nice and filling and complete. The room is absolutely spotless, with a nice TV and Air-conditioning. The Wi-Fi on the second floor had excellent signal, and the king size bed with thick duvet was a great comfort. The area is very safe and clean with plenty of shops although they are designed for locals, not tourists. The shopkeepers offer discounts if you mention that you are staying at the Swan
Garden Hotel. The rate was incredibly low compared to the nicer hotels in the area! I rate this hotel as an A or A+, and will be very glad to stay again soon.

"Get the biggest room you can as they are cheap by European or American standards and the larger rooms are probably better. I had the Superior Deluxe Double and it was very small but it was the biggest room available."
