I wouldn't honeymoon here, but when it comes to basic, and relatively clean accommodations at a low cost, this is the place to stay. The staff don't have the best English skills, but somehow they have enough to get you what you need. You mights see a roach or two, but I honestly don't think it's a reflection of the hotel. (Trust me, you know when the roaches have decided to set up a colony, and that's not what was going here.) I might have seen a small lizard on the wall of the corridor, but hey, windows are open and creatures crawl in. If you like your sheets to be bleached perfectly white, then look elsewhere and expect to pay more. But if you can live with sheets that have at least been put in the washer and dryer, you'll be OK. Some of the staff need a little training, like knocking on doors before entering to return laundry, etc. But all in all, if you're here on business or a low budget travel expedition, it's a cool place to stay. Walking distance from Marina beach if you want to go there. Internet cafes and other shops nearby, although you may have to go off the main thoroughfares and into some of the narrow side streets to get to them. There's also Internet on an old PC in the lobby, but they charge 50 rupees per hour, which is about a dollar or so in the U.S.
