Free wi-fi in the lobby, rooms ok, good breakfast, well located, lots of shops near by, walking distance to Periyar Reserve.
Be careful, shut your windows before you go out, otherwise the monkeys will get into your room and make a mess. This is not a joke. They are quick and bright.

Dear Suzan,
We, at Michael's Inn, would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit to Thekkady. We are also pleased to learn from your review that you had a comfortable and pleasant stay with us. We have taken note of your apprehension regarding monkey trouble. We would like to politely remind you that Monkey's are common sight in Thekkady and they do roam about freely on the streets and in and around our premises. At Michael's Inn, we usually detail the guests about the monkey proximity at the time of check-in. Also every room is provided with a guideline which reminds the guests to keep the windows and doors shut whenever they are not in the room so that monkeys are not encouraged to venture into the rooms. More over Monkeys are protected animals, so we cannot harm to chase them away. We can only discourage them by not entertaining them or by keeping certain guidelines. I hope you understand our predicament regarding such a sensitive issue. Ms. Suzan, Thank you once again for staying with us and we hope that you will continue to patronize us in the future as well.

We stayed there for one night in the month of November.Hotel is nice and clean.
it is a small hotel with just 2 floors, so no lift.For Senior citizens this could be a bit of an issue.
Otherwise the place is located perfectly and very neat and clean.Rooms are very spacious.Staff is helpful and the food is excellant.
Enjoyed our stay.There are some very nice shops in front of the hotel if you like shopping.

We stayed here during our trip across southern India, west to east. As written previously, the first characteristic we noticed was the staff. They are extremely helpful. The front desk manager, a short, thin, India gentleman, was one of the kindest and gentlest people I have met. Our room was good size and clean, as was the bath. No problems with the TV and wall outlets.
Eating at the restaurant was a different story. We ate dinner there the first night,located directly off the lobby. The food was good, nothing special; the dinning area is a bit small, and the acoustics are terrible. Cement walls, glass tables, noise coming from every direction. The entrance door was kept open, so all noise from the lobby also permeated the restaurant. Breakfast is served in another room, a lower level, giving it the feel of a basement, with the same cement walls. Not much of a selection, so we skipped it the remaining days.
The location is good, we walked to all the shops we needed to and then some. There is not a shortage of shops, with pleasant shopkeepers.
