Well as budget goes it was budget, however budget should not come at the price of hygiene. Please see the attached photos. We booked this as Tripadvisor gave it 7/10 and it was only for one night and it was close to the airport. So if you are on a budget then sure take a chance. Just make sure you...

And I agree with other reviewers that the breakfast was pretty awful. Room was dilapidated and service was always wanting. We got the room for convenience for meeting friends at the beach, but wouldn't do it again.

Breakfast served is not so up to what we have expected. Although the room was quite ok but still, there's a cockroaches running in and out. There is no bell boy or at least ground staff to help for carrying our luggage to the room. Although it is quite near to airport, but for my personal opinion, it is not...

I really wanted to like this place, but just didn't. The lady on reception was very pleasant but that's where it ended. The room was old and not many things worked. The curtains were ripped and we didn't want to have a shower. I'm not fussy, but the bathroom was a bit yuk. The wifi didn't work and the beds...

Stayed here for many times for these reasons: 1. Free shuttle to airport, just inform hotel staff your departure and arrival time. But I noticed that they have allocated certain time for their shuttle service unlike previously they even picked me up from airport late at night. However, it's still a big plus for this hotel. 2. Location wise, close...

This hotel is generally fine for the purpose of stop over trip to catch flight following day. Room is not great but okay. No complaint on breakfast and traditional food court is 5 minutes walk away. Shop lot is 15 minutes away (7 eleven). Wifi is on the lobby only and the drawback is the noise from taking off planes...

stayed for one night and the place is a stone's throw to Tanjung Aru first beach and to the Perdana Park. overall, the room cleanliness can do better and I do not like the lighting in the room as it is a little old. The room needs some improvement as some of the bulbs are not working and the switch...

The staff in Casuarina are all nice and helpful. They will note down your need and the transportation van will wait for you no matter how late at night or early in the morning. Considering the price, the hotel hardware is accetable, the bed is comfortable. Although one bubble went out in the room , but this is not a...

Not the best experience. Bathroom was not very clean. It actually looked like no one had ever even attempted to clean it :( I chose this hotel because it was close to the airport and offered a free airport transfer and free breakfast, however when I tried to organise the airport pick up, it was impossible to contact them. Their...
