We stayed at the king suit room which has a Balcony with some chairs to relax ๐Ÿ˜Ž. The rooms were clean and spacious the main thing the bathroom was very clean and toilet rolls been provided. It was nice to just walk around a while to reach any place we wanted and the beach was just a stone throw distance, its worth to stay in this budget friendly hotel๐Ÿจ The host Vino is very helpful and very kind Man who has a lot of information about the town and around and always ready for us. Vino arranged a cab for us and even helped us booking train tickets. Thanks Vino..

This place is good value for money, but poorly maintained. I had problems in the bathroom, an unconnected pipe, which I reported two or three times but which was not repaired. You can sit out on the connecting open areas, but the guest house is essentially shabby. However, it is in a convenient spot for visiting the town, restaurants etc.

As long as you go in expecting budget accommodation, then I think you'll be satisfied. Booked 1 night through Tripadvisor for 1000 rupees but ended up staying for 7 nights, booking the remaining 6 direct with the hotel for 650 rupees a night. Had a double room, no AC, but it had a large fan so was fine. Again, expect basic. Good wifi and staff were always friendly.

Had a great stay here, cheap and cheerful with a fabulous backpacker vibe to it and right in the centre of Mahabalipuram. The guy at the desk was really helpful and laid back. We were only meant to stay one night but ended up staying for three. Would definitely recommend if youโ€™re on a budget.

Had a great stay at Vinodhara. The staff went out of their way to help us sort the travel for the next part of our trip which was very much appreciated. Our room was basic (we only paid for the most basic room) but had everything we needed. The location is handy to the beach and good restaurants. There is a restaurant attached to the guesthouse which is a good spot for breakfast.
