Ended up here after having a few too many and not wanting to catch the last bus back to Mokpo! We paid 40,000 for a double room. It was clean, didn't smell of smoke and all the facilities worked. Big to, lovely power shower with jets and all the usual toiletries included. Would stay again but would bring ear plugs...

The location and the price just can't be beat. I stayed in the VIP room with three friends over the weekend of Lunar New Year and we only payed 140,000 KRW for two nights. Compared to Seoul and other locations I've stayed at, this is a pretty good deal. Sure, the decor is ancient and the beds are hard, but...

35000w double room entry level. Not super slick or new in style but totally reasonable for a short stay in the nicest area of Gwangju, close to downtown but the quiet, southern end so no party noises. We checked in at 11am when many other motels around the area were shut or unstaffed. Reception spoke English. Huge TV, fridge, water...

My friends and I stay here when we go to Gwangju. It's close to where we go out at night, it's clean, it's not super smoky, and the rate is great.

My wife and I have stayed at the Windmill 3 times now, and in general it is a good place. Just outside of the Dong-Gu Shopping area/Migliore, the location is wonderful. The rooms themselves are usually clean and clear of smoke smell. The one time we upgraded to a deluxe room, it was well worth the money, as the decor...

“Room 703 has a cockroach problem, but a great bathroom. All the rooms are quiet. Room 702 and 703 have horrible mattresses which are so old that you can feel every spring. My suggestion is to find another Motel.It is too expensive and dirty. But the location is great”
