St.John's Hotel
Donghae East Side Sea,Gangneung-si - View on map
"Hotel was a great value for the money. There are other hotels in the area, but they cost more and don’t seem that different. Room was nice and clean, multiple restaurants in the facility, short trip from Gangneung Station ( 강릉역), and beach is right there!"

"flanked by the ocean and lake, both just a stone's throw away! good for a laid-back vacation by the beach, stroll around the lake, affordable cab fares to attractions nearby e.g. anmok beach for coffee, sundubu tofu village, close to Gangneung station~ great to visit in the Summer!"

Sun Cruise Resort and Yacht
Donghae East Side Sea,Gangneung-si - View on map
"The reception staff was very courteous, spoke very good English, and had us in our room in minutes. The room was spacious and clean. The only downside was that the beds felt like sleeping on a box-spring. Unfortunately there was no beach access from this beachside resort. I think it may have been due to expansion at the foot of the hill, but beach access was one of our main reasons for choosing the location. Also, the hotel is several kilometers south fro the heart of the city of Gangneung-si. There is a small resort town at the foot of the resort, but it is not Gangneung-si proper. Overall, the rooms are a bit high for the location but the cool factor of staying in a cruise ship hotel on the side of the hill makes it worthwhile!"

Gangneung City Hotel
Gangneung City Center,Gangneung-si - View on map
"The room was pretty clean and new. It was enough for 2 people, but if you are with large suitcases, it wasn’t so spacious for those. It’s located legit close to Gangneung KTX station, which is only 10 minutes drive, 4-5 bus stops far. And of course there’s a convenience store nearby!"

Hotel Cube
Donghae East Side Sea,Gangneung-si - View on map
"Stayed here for 4 nights in an Ocean Double. Definitely recommend the Ocean rooms which face the beach. Great to fall asleep with the sound of waves on the sand. Although if you’re a light sleeper the noises from fireworks on the beach and people walking down the street seems to go on until early hours. I didn’t find it a problem and the benefit of being right on the beach definitely outweighed that. Plenty of parking, good rooms and helpful staff. There isn’t any cafe/breakfast but there are lots of places around. Looks like they might be opening a cafe downstairs but it still looked under construction when I stayed here. Only 2 negatives I had whilst I was staying here which could be addressed by the hotel is the lights on the balcony are on 24/7. There is no switch to turn them off. Also, no shower screen. I’d prefer a shower cubicle rather than a bath in a hotel but having no shower screen made water go everywhere but I think that this is fairly normal in this situation in South Korea. Would recommend having a car as well as this place is a perfect base to go to Seoraksan and also I drove to the Goseong DMZ area which was interesting. I also drove to Sogeumsan Suspension Bridge (Wonjo) which was a couple of hours away but really worth it. I really annoyed my time at this hotel. "

Donghae East Side Sea,Gangneung-si - View on map
"Two nights, great view and friendly staff. Fridge didn't function too well, but the downstairs convenient store owner helped and let us store our stuff in his freezer. Awesome seafood places in a walkable distance. Parking is tough, but unsure about during weekends, but week days, I'd def come back. 로비에랑 클리닝 스태프분들 다 친절하세요!!! 또 올게요 :) "

Donghae East Side Sea,Gangneung-si - View on map
"My family and I vacationed here during our summer vacation. It was "Golden Week" in Korea so we ended up paying double the regular rate. So that's why I rated the value for money a 3 star. It is beautiful and very nice. Everything is modern and even the entrance is very grand. Our room had partial view, but it was perfect. We saw the harbor and the sea-green water. We had two beds in the room and each were large (definitely not single beds). The room and bathroom were very clean, as well. The water in the hotel is hot when first turned on. That was a surprise. If you don't plan to go out, you can go upstairs to the rooftop and have some drinks. The food menu wasn't vast, but the beer was unlimited. Also, the view from the rooftop is AMAZING. When you go out to the large terrace and look below, you can see the coral and sea-green water. I actually didn't know that mainland Korea had that color sea. If you want to leave the hotel, you need a car. Nothing is close by walking."
