SOME WHAT a Nice Hotel”

Was stayed a night in a windowless room. All I can say is that, I wont compare pear with apples, cat with tigers and lions. I used to stay in many low budget hotels around Malaysia and this hotel sam huat, I mean somewhat impressed me. Room though no window, the air well ventilated and isn't stuffy, the aircond working efficiently. The mattress is of high quality springer one, free from bed bugs. To my surprise, this hotel sam huat, I mean somewhat even provides toilettries and complimentary bottled drinks. And it even provides working elevator as well. The location is near to Mekdi, convenience stores, banks, hypermarket and even a self-service 24-hour laundry beside it.

Budget Hotel - Sam Huat ,Value for Money”

Good location for foods, transport and accessibility. Elevator available. Friendly Hotel Staff.

My family and I, consisting of 2 young age children. We were attending a sports games in Pontian. It was recommended by the organiser for this hotel. BUT, we were told that the hotel does not has a lift! (wrong information, the lift is available.) The room for Quad/4 persons is very spacy and the interior is just upgraded, especially the toilet, tiling are very clean and new. It is a budget hotel, value for money.

Lack of visible signboard from the main road”

Quadruple room was spacious and functional. The mattress was new. Extra pillows requested were provided at no extra cost.

Hotel was hard to find as it was not close to the other 3 hotels which are near to the seaside. However, once it was located, it was still easy to move about in Pontian town and the hotel was close to the open-air food centre and Ah Po Bak Kut Teh shop, both were about 10-15 minutes walk away. Room was clean. Hotel staff were friendly and gave us 2 hours extra check out time from the usual 1 pm. Overall was fair and given the price we paid MYR 100, we would consider coming back to stay again for a short break from city life in Singapore. There was not much shopping done but we did visit the fish market in the morning as recommended by another traveller. Fishes were fresh and the wholesale fish market is at the back of the market itself. We drove to Benut, 20 min drive north of Pontian. Along the way, we saw many fruit trees laden with rambutans, langsat and duku. We bought some fruits from stalls set up by the side of the road.

No words asked when check-in and check-out. Free and Easy. Within walking distance to eateries.

Rooms quite clean but air-con is too old (working but noisy) which makes your sleep unpleasant. With many hotels coming up in Pontian now, they need to make improvements to stay competitve.(eg lobby -which is messy.

Value for Money and Friendly”

Value for Money, Friendly and Attentive staff

Our recent third visit (during our local Vesak Day's long weekend) showed that the overall quality of this hotel has improved since our first visit, over a period of less than 6 months. The greatest of all would be its value for money as a budget hotel albeit down to earth or no frill facilities. A family run establishment that is attentive and with other friendly staff as well as quick and simple check-in and checkout process ~ no hassle. Its relatively centralized location is very nearby to some nice and localized Chinese food outlets, e.g. clay-pot rice and bak-guk-tay (meaning, pork ribs soup)

With rates below RM50, can't expect things going your way but here, it worth every single penny spent. Surprising for a cheap room still got a working elevator. The aircond is working well. The toilet is clean and free from fowl stench (even a 4-star hotel got stenched loo), flat screen TV and parking lot with no worries of getting summoned by town council for not displaying parking tickets which other budget hotels don't have such facility.

wifi (available)

1 the short stay by my family at aforementioned hotel had been quite ok (overall) but except following shortcomings: 1.1 water heater in the bathroom there was none water at all from the water heater for shower, for nearly an hour, when we returned to the room near midnight [on feb 11th]. the explanation given was that "no water in the water tanks on the top of the roof". whenever there was water via the heater, the water pressure is relatively very weak. 1.2 car park lots the designed [free] parking lots [at the back of the hotel building] are very limited ~ or for less than 10 vehicles. 2 the other nice facilities beyond the hotel itself are as follows: 2.1 a car wash shop it's next to the hotel [or next to the traffic light junction] and the prices are reasonable. 2.2 the mcdonald (24/7 services) it's across the the traffic light or about 100 meters away from hotel. 2.3 an indian kopi-tiam [or localised cafe] it sells indian muslim food [i.e., roti-prata with various carry versions, etc], with reasonable good taste and pricing. it is directly opposite the mcdonald. 3 notwithstanding to 1 above, and if the room charges remain reasonably attractive, we may consider to stay at this said hotel in the future.
