Very good location but limited facilities”

Beacon Inn is located in the heart of Mount Austin (In Johor Bahru, the two most hip areas are in Sutera & Bukit Indah and also Mount Austin, so practically you can find a lot of cafes; yes a lot of halal eateries here and entertainment like Lost in JB and Escape Room and karaokes around here) you can find 7-11, and restaurants here (no food court or hawker centres though) No towels provided and all rooms are with shared bathrooms. Good point is that you would have to memorise the codes to open the glass door all the time, so pray you would remember the code!

My Beacon Inn experiences”

Fast internet, clean bathroom and toilet, cold aircond

I arrived Desaru at about 1 am, and I cant find the location of Beacon Inn in waze, so I try to call the hotel, and answer he guided me to put sunway Austin college in the navigator and I drove there take about 40 minutes and wait for me there and drove me to the hotel, such a good hardwork and very welcoming host at 2am!!! No one will got up at that time but he did, finally I'm in the room but a bit lack of towel in the room, I have to use my own tshirt to wipe my body after bath, I hope they will provide the towel to traveller because its one of the necessity, the hotel surrounding is good, quite nice neighbourhood, and there is policeman with motorcycle and security watching every half hour, I manage to fast walk around the hotel, I think its a good place for jogging as well, the location is a bit far to JB city center but if u coming from desaru this hotel is the nearest

VERY STRATEGIC PLACE”

This place is wonderful with that price is superb, I love the place here because you won't be hungry all the restaurants and beverages are within walking distance. However, below the inn is PUB, I don't think anyone can sleep if they stay on the second floor, so if possible choose the top floor room because at night the PUB music gonna be so loud. I brought my ear block so it was acceptable. Everything is nice and clean just the PUB music at night.... Overall is a great place to stay!

Beacon Inn: New, modern, impeccably clean and reliable, fast Internet”

Rooms/facilities are new and modern; from the remote controlled A/C to the adjustable hot water control in the showers, everything works, and the public areas are kept impeccably clean (Cleaned daily). Large LCD TV (Chinese, Malay local channels) with a collection of about 100 movies (and growing, just ask at the desk). Internet is the best public WiFi I've encountered in a long time; rated @ 6.5 Mbps, stream videos, movies/TV (Netflix), music (Spotify), even large file downloads, fast and little/no buffering. Stayed 1 month (no monthly or weekly rates available), very few foreign tourists so desk clerks don't get much practice with their English. Can be busy, crowded on weekends; had to use earplugs on occasion to get a good night's sleep. Away from the hustle, bustle and noise of downtown Johor, bus #BEN6 (runs every 1/2 hour early morning thru late night daily) to/from JB Central bus station (20 min., 3.1RM) where you can get a bus to just about anywhere (including the shuttle to th

Perfect spot !!!”

I traveled with 3 others here. All stayed in 1-room with double bunk bed. The room was perfectly clean including the bed sheet, pillow cover and blanket. We all had a good sleep. Common toilet was also clean and well maintained. The hotel doesn't allow guest to walk around with shoes / slippers. Shoe rack is there at the main door. No toiletries arranged for guest (including towel) - do bring your own. There is A LOT of shops / restaurants & bars around this Hotel. It is definitely a perfect location to crash-in :-)

It is the most budget place to stay in Mount Austin, Johor Bahru. Do not expect too much for the facilities as they only provide a bed and a place to shower. Located right at the middle of Mount Austin, a lot of good food and good places for visitors.

The best value for money! Capsule room too damn cool!”

Staff were friendly especially angie, room was 'woahhhh so coooool' and a whole new experience for me. However there won't be any entertainment in the room so party out till late night and return to the room quietly. On the other hand, it'll be a great staycation place with numerous entertainment places around the block. Cleaniless was good as well 4/5! Overall experience was 4.5/5! Location is good if staycation, but if planning to go ksl/city sq, cab will be around 25-40rm depending on traffic.

First try in Capsule room but disappointed”

Choose this becoz of Capsule room, it was neat & clean but without facilities (No TV, No Safety box, no shampoo/towel, locker is unusable) only mirror, lights, plug point, air-con is provided 😄. This budget hotel is located in a new `Taman' close to Austin Water park, 3 storey shoplot but only occupied 2nd & 3rd floor, ground floor is a Restaurant/Pub. Me and a lady friend stayed a night in Capsule room which was allocated in 3rd floor. Feel unsafe during stay due to hotel is not separate in male & female area. During our stay that night, I think me & my friend is the only lady in 3rd floor, others (around 6-7 person) all is male guest, some of them is foreign workers (i saw 2 pairs of construction boots on shoes rack)😯 . Public bathroom & toilet is shared both male & female(Feel uncomfortable & nausea) 1 of the toilet flushing system is spoil very smelly... Hotel location is good and convenience, 7-11, restaurant, mamak stall nearby & surrounded & price is reasonable too.

I rent a single bed room. Overall is good but the wall and bed sheet turn a bit yellow at some corners. Got a lot food within walking distance. Polite staff. Sound proof not so good because can hear people talking at lobby (my room just in front of lobby) Anyway, it's recommended for solo travel and business trip with the affordable price.
