Everything at hotel was gr8...only disappointment was mosquito attack in the night...though they provided the mosquito repellant mat but dat was not effective...the room, view, cleanliness and the staff was very nice...even the comlimentary breakfast was okay.

Nice quiet small hotel

Posted Feb 12, 2014
Pros: Central position and helpful staff, especially manager
Cons: Breakfast could have a wider choice !
Location: great location, shore temple very close by as is shopping on the main drag.
Stayed two nights and found the hotel to be generally basic but fine for our needs. Breakfast was a little bland with limited offering but no complaints. Hotel manager was ever so kind and helpful. Mamalla Beach Resort a couple of kilometres north of the village is connected with this hotel and is a nice place (with a pool) to relax and unwind after a morning of temple-hopping or shopping. Just take an auto rickshaw for around 100 rps and walk back to the village along the shore. Lovely.

Good value functional accommodation

Posted Feb 5, 2014 on Hotels
The room was comfortable with a balcony allowing one to overlook everyday life in Mahallapalapuram. A good swimming pool on the roof, though without steps for getting in and out, and no sunbathing facilities. Helpful and friendly management. Whole building fairly functional without pictures, ornaments etc. and ittle atmosphere. Breakfast poor. 10 minute walk to "tourist" area. Good value. Would use again.

Decrepit hotel

Posted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: Close to Mamalla Heritage which has a good restaurant.
Cons: Overall condition of the hotel.
Perhaps the people who own the hotel realise that it need improvement, which is why scaffolding and exposed concrete supporting pillars and beams are scattered throughout the hotel. Hopefully, they will have enough money to renovate the rooms and bathrooms. Also, a restaurant that opens occasionally isn't an inviting prospect. When I asked about breakfast on my way out to eat at their sister hotel, I was told that I could order breakfast through room service. Not very helpful since the telephone in my room didn't work. When I checked out, all I wanted to do was get to a clean bathroom to take a shower and wash Mamalla Inn off me.

Good but with conditions!.

Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: Neat rooms.
Cons: No Restaurant.
Location: Not near the beach.
Hotel rooms are good but car parking is a nuisance but safe and no restaurant at site, need to travel to Mamalla beach resort for the included breakfast which is over 3-4 Kms away. Roof top pool is great. Location is not near the beach.
