Room size was ok; bed size was comfortable for one couple and a kid. No chairs and table in the room, but can relax in the balcony. Excellent location, walkable distance from the beach. No restaurant nearby for local Indians, but plenty of cafe joints for foreigners. Room charges are acceptable for the available facilities. In fact, I was lucky as the hotel owner didn't charge me extra for early check-in and late check-out (6-7 hrs. extra). The guest house owner Mr. Shekhar (Mob: 9003363877) is really a nice and helpful person with ground to earth personality. I took help of Vadivel, a local auto guy (Mob: 9840182084) for the local tour. Over all my stay with the family was pleasant and memorable at Vinodhara Guest house and Mahabalipuram tour.

We stayed at the king suit room which has a Balcony with some chairs to relax 😎. 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 hotel🏨 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.

I visited Vinodhara guesthouse for a weekend on December 2017. The place was nice, friendly and clean. Central location, very welcoming and kind. צוות המקום מאוד אדיב ונחמד, מבינים היבטים של כשרות ושבת. המקום נקי, מרכזי, נוח להגיע וקרוב לאטרקציות במהבליפוראם. מומלץ מאוד. Highly recommended! :)

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.
