As long as you keep this in mind, it will be fine.
The hotel scores well in what I consider the critical areas: clean room/bed/bathroom, good shower, food within walking distance. Additionally, parking is convenient.
There's only one elevator, and it is small. The TV channels are limited. Breakfast is not included. All of these are acceptable considering the price.
Surprisingly, the lady at the front desk speaks English well. She is efficient and helpful, even cheerful.
This was a trip to a wedding dinner. The twelve of us were originally booked into the nearby Streetview Hotel. However, when one of us went there to pay a deposit, the hotel refused to honour the verbally agreed rate, and insisted on charging an additional RM7. The quantum is small, insufficient even for a beer. However, the whole group agreed that we will not stay there as a matter of principle. If one of their employee gives out the wrong rate, even verbally,m they should honour it.
