The hotel is located within 1000m from the temple which is very decent since most of the good hotels in this range are in the same vicinity. This hotel has an advantage being directly on the main road at a hard to miss location. It also has its own parking which is a must if you are travelling by car. Regardless of the room's availability I would strongly suggest to as for parking availability as last time I had to park it unattended on one of the roads in some other budget hotel. We stayed in deluxe Ac room which has got a drawing room with a sofa, table and 2 chairs; bedroom with queen size bed, bathroom/toilet with hot water and a balcony. The room was clean. Toilets spick n span. Staff is very courteous. Rack room rate is around 2200/-. Makemytrip gives it at 1700/- Yesterday I got additional 50% off via the makemytrip app hence the title. Pics were clicked b4 checkout hence room is messy. Apologies for the same.

Location is a long walk from the shrine about 1 km or so. However, the hotel which is more or less like an apartment has good clean rooms. Service is prompt as well. Also quite in budget considering other hotels in the vicinity. Value for money.

We usually stay at a popular hotel on the busy East Nada stretch on our trips to Guruvayoor. However on this occasion I booked Chandana Inn as the other hotel was not available online and I was in a mood to experiment. Moreover we just needed to spend one night and very little time at the hotel.
The hotel is located just off the main temple stretch in a peaceful locality.
However the rooms were smallish and there was barely enough space around the bed to move around.
A big draw-back is that they don't have an in-house restaurant. Room service orders even for coffee/tea can take a long time.
Wouldn't go back on my next visit, would prefer one of the tried and tested one on East Nada.

We stayed here for 2 days in December.. They allowed us flexible check in and check out timings. The room was clean and spacious as we were 3 people staying in one room. Bathroom had running hot and cold water throughout the day. The Hotel is at an excellent walkable distance to the temple. They provide Coffee and tea service in the room itself. The only disappointment is that the hotel doesn't have a restaurant.
Otherwise we would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting guruvayoor and we would definitely stay again when we visit Guruvayoor..

We reached Guruvayur on August 22 2015 for our son's choorunu on the next day. Before starting from Ernakulam , we had called on Chandana Inn's number stating that we had booked room there with my husband's name. We informed them that we would reach there later in the evening. We reached Guruvayur by train in the evening and took an auto to Chandana Inn. On reaching there we were informed that they were full and that they had made alternate arrangements for us in another lodge. They said that our booking had come through due to some techical issues in the cleartrip site even when their lodge was full. They said they had informed cleartrip regarding this and cleartrip had asked them to make alternate arrangements for us. We tried to argue with them that they had not mentioned anything when we called in the afternoon, but they said it was because they had many bookings from cleartrip. We were tired and it was late in the evening. We had no other option and agreed to go with them to the lodging they had arranged for us. It was in Krishna Gardens hotel which was 200m further inside from the opposite side of the road.
The only good thing I could find about Chandana Inn was that the staff was very courteous and the owner took us to the new Krishna Gardens in his car.
I don't know whether this rating is for Chandana Inn or Cleartrip. I leave that to the readers to decide.
Also as a note till this date we have never received any communication from cleartrip regarding this change of accommodation.

Room Tip: Please be careful when booking with Cleartrip or booking at Chandana Inn
