Its good place. Government staff ,so do not expect much hospitality. Room are old but good. In peak season it is good option to book as they do not charge you exorbitantly. Restuarant inside is terrible. But you can find Bhoj-nalay outside MTDC. Its 8 Km away from Lonavla.

This is one of our favorite places to relax at. It is a huge expanse with almost a hundred Cottages & Rooms to suit every taste & budget. Being Govt owned & managed, it is not very well maintained & the facilities are very basic. The interiors are also ordinary & are not luxurious. Room Service is virtually non existent...

The MTDC Karla is a very serene property. The atmosphere is very refreshing amids the nature and neatly maintained. It has small water park inside to chill with friends and family. The backyard has a lake too, which had boating facility which is not in service at the moment. The rooms available though a bit costly are worth the stay,...
