    Goodstay Pinocchio was a welcoming piece of serenity by the Yellow Sea after the hustle of the city. The room had full 180 degree view of the ocean and was clean and tidy, sufficient space and comfortable.. The owners were lovely as we spoke no Korean and they provided us with information and assistance wherever they could. If going to Mallipo this would be the place to stay.

    Amazing loaction, Completely recommend!”
    I stayed at Pinocchio Pension for 4 nights with my 3 and 5 year olds. We just wanted a nice beach vacation. The owners have been there for 60 years, and even former President Park (whom many believe is the father of modern Korea) even stayed here back in the '60's. I felt like my boys and I were taken extra special care of. Mallipo Beach is literally across the one lane street in front of the pension. Cheollipo Arboretum is ten minutes walking down the road. All your dinners and quick marts are down the same street as the pension. You can even bring your own food and use the fridge, rice cooker, and grill provided by the pension. Breakfast is provided in the pension's Pinocchio cafe and was lovely! They even play lovely music on speakers in the cafe and garden area. The garden has fruit trees and a large variety of flowers. My stay was relaxing, easy, delightful, and I will be going to Pinocchio Pension again! I can't say enough about it! Book it!

    Staff was genuinely welcoming and helpful, room was lovely(it was my girlfriend and I) ~1 room. Each pension has a porch area, it's so nice and quiet. There is a lovely garden. Wish the place had a hot tub in the front though hehe. Big open space just asking for one. 10/10 if i go to that beach again I'll go to this Pension.

    Excellent Pension”
    Good location, Special history, Clean Room and good service
    I have many experience to travel in Korea, globally as well. Among the many Hotels or Pension like Pinocchio i stayed, this is one of the best one. There are three reasons why i think so. First of all the location of the pension is fantastic. It is along side Famous beach "Manripo" that is very popular for Koreans. Also the Manripo beach have long coastal walk, clean sea water, beautiful views. So you can enjoy swinning, walk, date with your good friends or your family. Secondly it have special history. More than 35 years ago, the president Park, Junghee, known as the builder of Korea, stayed in this hotel with his family members for their summer vacation. Lastly the hotl staff's service quality is very good. The room is cozy, very clean, very comfortable. Also They provide breakfast, Coffee, free of charge. You can enjoy reading some books they did stock in resaurant with honeyed music. Finally i strongly recommend you to have the experience to stay in this cozy pension with your family or sweet people.

    Proximity to the beach, friendly and helpful owners,
    Second stay here and great both times. The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. The only downside is the price in comparison to other hotels in the area, about twice the price and there is an additional charge to use a grill.

    Great Family Getaway”
    Location, peaceful,clean
    My family and I wanted an overnight getaway from Seoul, and this was the perfect solution. I threw our trip together in a matter of 2 days, and it ended up being such a wonderful experience. I came across this Pension on Agoda.com and went for it, hoping that the reviews were truthful. It held up to everything that was described and more. We ended up being the only visitors there since we went on the off-season, and it was great honestly. The beach is literally across the street, and the view from the pension is fantastic. The rooms are cozy and quaint, they have a coffee pot and a small fridge available, so it was nice that we could bring food/snacks a long for our little ones. Great patio with tables and chairs and beautiful gardens. The owner and his wife are a sweet older Korean couple, and are the just the nicest people, and speak good english. They take pride in their Pension for sure. Since we were there in the off season, most of the town and restaurants were closed, but during peak season there would be many places to choose from. There is a burger joint 2 places down from the pension, a BHC chicken/pizza place, GS-25 convenience store, and MANY tradition Korean restaurants and seafood places. The owner's wife was so kind and called the chicken/pizza place for us and they delivered for to us within 20 minutes. She cooked us a great English-style/Western breakfast of poached eggs, toast, sliced tomatoes, and bacon with OJ and Coffee. Looks like you can order fancy drinks like frappe's, latte's, etc. there in the cafe too. My kiddos loved running around on the decks/patios and loved the beach. Fantastic sunset! Definitely a family place, but by no means is it fancy. A cozy, quaint B&B with a subtle Pinnochio Theme. So cute! We will definitely be returning!!

This pension is very recommendable for family who is looking for comfortable famly trip.

    comfortable bungalows close to the beach
    We stayed 2 nights there with our 2 kids (6 and 9 years). The pension is just across the beach, restaurants and small supermarket are nearby. The owner has 2 bicycles which can be rented. The breakfast is western- and korean-style. The village is not very big , but perfect for relaxing, swimming and sunset viewing. The whole area is famous for beaches, mainly visited by Korean people.

    Wonderful getaway to a quiet oceanview country B&B”
    Right on the ocean, close to beautiful Chollipo Arboretum, very nice/attentive older couple who own the B&B and runs the cafe
    We had a wonderful time at Goodstay Pinocchio Pension, and we will definitely be returning! Other hotels/motels in the area were either too commercialized or simply not as comfortable/professional looking as Pinocchio. We loved it and honestly thought it was the BEST place to stay in Taean-Gun and Mallipo beach. I think this place (and Mallipo beach as a whole) is one of Korea's best kept secrets.

    Liebenswerte Hotelleitung”
    Das freundliche Ehepaar, welches die Pension leitet, die geräumigen Räumlichkeiten und die Lage am Meer
    Das Hotel wird von einem sehr liebenswerten, zurückhaltenden, älteren koreanischen Ehepaar mit Englisch-Basiskenntnissen geleitet. Meine etwas nostalgisch anmutende Unterkunft (dennoch ausgestattet mit SAT-Fernsehen, Kühlschrank, Klimaanlage, Wasserkocher, Fussbodenheizung) war sauber und geräumig. Auffällig sind die Schilder (in einer der Unterkünfte und im Frühstücksraum) mit Hinweisen, dass Präsident Park Chung-Hee im Jahre 1967 die Pinocchio-Pension besucht habe und dass sein guter Geist auf den Besucher übergehen möge. So wird der Aufenthalt auch gewissermaßen zu einer kleinen Zeitreise. Für europäische Besucher gibt es ein kontinentales Frühstück, wobei auf Sonderwünsche gerne eingegangen wird. Parkplätze sind in ausreichender Zahl vor und hinter dem Hotel vorhanden. WLAN gibt es leider nur im Frühstücksraum, welches auch zugleich das Cafe der Pension ist.
