Good stopover pre flight

Speedy check in / check out; close to tourist souvenir shops; hot water and AC.
Our stay was entirely average, but a fairly convenient location close to the airport [WARNING: the hotel reception desk will charge you more for a pre-arranged tuk tuk or bus transfer ($20) than you can find from a local tuk tuk outside the hotel (LKF 600)]. Due to flight times, we arrived at 8pm (highway expressway bus straight from Matara) and left at 10am. The check in (and check out) process was very efficient, but were told that everything else is an additional cost (soap, shower gel, and no complimentary water). The internet pictures sell well: the decor is quite modern, with bright oranges and greens going up the stairwell, but the paint job looks dated, and something was missing for me. The corridors can be loud, and the sound of screaming children carries (although the hotel was peaceful after 10pm). The hot water was fine (with intermittent pressure), clean towels, solid AC unit and the TV had poor reception (fuzzy channels). Breakfast was $5 per person, but you can find for much cheaper at a local restaurant. The pool is absolutely tiny - maybe 2 x 7m or something. Another WARNING if you are staying in room 302: when we popped into town for dinner, we closed the door leading to our bedroom (and that of our neighbour). However, we were later told that guests cannot re-open the door, and we had to ask the maintenance lady to trawl through the keys in the hotel to find the key that would unlock the door leading to our bedroom. I pointed out that there is not a sign saying "do not close this door", and that perhaps the door should be taken off its hinges. The hotel sits on the beach, but has dirty sand, littered rubbish and unwelcoming stray dogs. In summary, the hotel was average, and we could have stayed closer to the airport, as neither the beach nor pool were anything to write home about. I didn't get an option of putting a score, but I would probably rate a 6.5-7.0 as nothing disastrous (this is just an honest account), but also nothing special.

Budget hotel. Not for light sleepers.

clean and near beach
Used this hotel as a short stay over. Room is clean with good showers. Problem is room is not soundproof. This means we can hear people up and down the stairs, speaking at corridor. Worse was the crows at 6am in the morning. They were so many of them on the cable and lampost just outside our rooms. The noise they made was so loud, there is no way we could sleep.

amazing hotel

room was big, clean and quiet. pool was perfect and staff very helpfull
Hotel J was the first stop in our sri lanka trip. We could not have wished for a better start. Room was big, clean and quiet. Every day fresh towels and sheets. Pool side was very nice with plenty of beds to choose from. The staff was extremely helpfull. I think they made 10 calls on our behalf for taxi's tours and our next accommodation.
