A popular saying 'What you pay is what you get' - this is true in this case. Don't expect too much in a budget price. Facility is nice and clean. Staff is very friendly, cooperative and responsive. I would only recommend the AC superior sea view room even if you have to pay a little extra. Although you don't get to see the beach from the room/balcony but at least you can peep out. The non-sea view rooms are kind of cramp and damp lacking ventilation. The non-sea views also have balconies which face other hotels which are terrible.
The restaurant is good. The buffet breakfast is enormous for the price, has variety and good quality. Hence a good bargain. Restaurant staff hospitality is very good.
It is 2 minute walk from the marine drive road and sea beach. Certainly a better bet than the expensive hotels on marine drive. There are numerous restaurants, food joints, bakery and tea stalls in the vicinity. Market is near, on the marine drive road. Swargdwar and golden beach are at walk distance.
Overall recommendable, if book the AC superior sea view room.
