Affordable, no frills Inn on Kelawai Road, next to Gurney Drive. Frankly, I like this place. It's not a 4 or 5 Star Hotel but it's got everything: wifi, Coffee making, TV, Aircond, parking etc. My room was situated at the back of the building with a view towards the sea. It's quiet and feels like home. Only issue is... More

Cleanliness – OK. It might be an old establishment; 12 years to be exact, but it is clean. However, every time once open the door, there’s strong cigarette smell, but the smells fade away upon entry. *weird* Location – Average. It takes about 20-30 minutes on foot to reach Gurney Drive Hawker Centre. But it takes lesser to reach other... More

We stayed at Good Hope Hotel for 3 days. Although it is a new house, the noise reduction is poor, caused by the inadequate design of doors and windows. So the noise from a car park building behind the hotel was very disturbing. The room was clean and functional and relatively inexpensive. They offer free WiFi, but most of the... More

To conclude, the place can be maintained in a much better state than what it is at the moment. The room that I had smelt of cigarette smoke, and immediately was a turn off for me. The prices are low, and I guess now you understand why. Hopefully the management can improve and get the place up and running well... More

Totally disappointed with the experience at this hotel! It was Expensive (RM180++ a night -could have gotten a much better hotel for that price instead of this dump), service & facilities way below expectation. Only 1 lift & it wasn't working throughout our stay. We were assured that it would be repaired ASAP, but when we checked out 4 days... More

What do you need on a budget holiday? A clean room, clean towels, clean hot shower and a great location. These were all met easily by this inn. My wife and i practices "compact living" and have stayed a lot of times here. We totally enjoyed the convenience that it provides for a weekend getaway.
