              It's located next to the main road and night market across the street next to 7-11. Room is big enough. But toilet not very clean. A bit old hotel. There is a small Pool But we did not use and free wifi. Overall is ok. As we didn't spend much time in the room.

              The hotel is situated on the main road, 10-15 min from the beach(organized transfer 9am and 10 am) and near both of the food markets. The room was big and clean. If you want peace ask for the room with a balcony on the side of the pool not the road. The breakfest is small but nice. The staff is very helpful and kind. They offer towels for the beach so you dont need to bring your own (no cost).

              The breakfast was great. The room was kind of nice. I stayed in the room with pool view which was more perfect. It even has a small reading area which you can overlook the pool area or outside. Highly recommended and will be back here again.

Overall place is good.

              Pool, breakfast included, clean

              We were very happy to arrive at this beautiful hotel resort. It is very well maintained, nicely designed in modern style, great service, tasty breakfast. Even though the front faces the main road, there are plenty rooms facing the inside (the pool), and the street noise is unnoticed. Free wifi signal made it easy for u's to connect with family back home. The beach is a bit of a walk, but we rented a motorbike and had no problem getting to it. We will definitely stay here again.

              cleanliness, staff friendliness with good English skills

              Came to hotel and discovered it was fully booked but they took us to another hotel on the beach that was at least a 4 star hotel with huge gardens, large rooms and wonderful buffet breakfast. No Complaints. Back to Motive for the next two nights. Hotel good and staff wonderful. Good breakfast with fresh fruit and adequate selection of ordered menu. It was a little difficult to actually locate the hotel and that is my only issue. Highly recommend it for the price.

              Spacious & Clean rooms. We were delighted at the spaciousness of the room. It was also very clean. Wendy (manager) was helpful throughout our stay (4D3N). Even though the rest of the front office staff's English is not fantastic, they tried their best in understanding and delivering our requests with a smile on their faces. When making requests for reservation of sight-seeing trip, the staff used their initiative and find different options for us. This does not happen often, even when we stay at 5-star resorts.

              as I am spending one night, therefore still able to accept it as it by the road side. my room is facing the road and it is noisy day & night due to the vehicle passing by. I have this feeling that booking via Agoda mostly end-up with room not allow me to give the hotel a good-rating.

              It was our second visit. It is quiet now as the bar located next to the hotel seems to be out of business for the period we were there. Just cross the road and we will pass by many good and affordable F&B outlets before reaching the beach. The room was clean and bright as the glass windows allow plenty of sunshine to the room. We enjoyed our stay very much.

              Good value hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. Rooms on ground floor are noisy from both staff going about their business in the morning and noise from upstairs on wooden floors filtering into our room. Unfortunately hard to sleep-in without earplugs in. Last year we stayed next door at Tony Lodge and found it much more peaceful there. Apart from that, rooms are good, beds are good, breakfast is adequate.

              This hotel is about 5 minutes walking from the beach. Its on the main road up from the main drag of Kho Lak. We hired a bike and headed up to white sands and the waterfalls all within 10 minutes. The staff here were super friendly and even picked us up from phuket airport. We hired there driver again when we left to take us to Kho Sok national park. In the rooms is a little in room balcony affair - a table with 2 axe pillows in front of the window. Its lovely to be able to relax after a day at the beach. There is a 7-11 over the road, a mini mart attathed to the hotel and the tripadvisor number 1 "the candle restaurant" over the road. Superb hotel. Would recommend.

              surprisingly nice! A great deal for the price.”

              rooms just the right size. Staff are really friendly.

              This hotel is on the main road that runs through Khao Lak and is situated about a 10 minute walk from the Bang Niang Beach road. If you want a hotel on the beach, this isn't it. And if you want a hotel in the centre of the big night life action, you probably need to look for a hotel in the Nang Thong Beach area. But if you are looking for a charming budget hotel with great staff and clean rooms. This is the perfect choice. After a scrape up on a scooter, I ended up staying here for 6 nights (my husband went diving and I stayed behind to heal). I enjoyed every minute. There is a nice pool for cooling off. Rooms are very nice (ask for a pool side room!) The staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast, while simple is all you need. You have to ask for cereal, but when you do, you receive a bowl of fruit, museli and yogurt. You can order eggs any way you want them and there is fresh fruit, toast, bacon and franks. The bathroom is budget style. No extras and a bit of mold around the tiles, but I didn't let this stop me from loving this place.

              Great value for money, 24 hour security.

              Close to the main road to the beach, clean hotel, well kept. Not the closest hotel to the beach, but only a 2 min scooter ride, or 10 min walk. Hotel is on busy main road, so be sure to request a pool view room on the inside of the courtyard. Breakfast was average..but espresso coffee machine was a lifesaver. Good shuttle service to airport, with friendly driver. Booked through front desk. Bit of an ant problem in the room, but cleared up after we sprayed insect repellent on the ground :) Other than that, really cute room with exposed brick. little balcony overlooking the pool, and a cool little cubby reading area inside. Good money saver if you will be spending most of your days adventuring on the water or expiring on a scooter!
