Stay at motel was fine as per prices they quoted. Really a budget hotel for backpackers. Location is good as it's in walking distance from Cenang Beach. I would recommend it for backpackers and limited budget tourists.

Overall it was a good experience, specially location is very prime. Value for money.
Good location.. restaurant just cross road.. 5minute to chenang mall
unfriendly customer service because there is no reception
The motel was nice and bit too far from the main beach, the staff were very cool and not very strict about checking out and in, they were too kind

Outdated photos. Insects. Dirtiest place I ever seen.
The hotel photos, which are advertised, are from the years ago. Terrible rooms with dirt all over. Insects in the holes in the walls. The worst hotel I ever seen, cockroaches all over the place and totally anti-sanitary condition.

Excellent laundry...
...good location (15 mins walk from Cenang beach)... but that's about it. We stayed in one of the cabins which was quite quaint and well serviced with TV, air-con and fan. All mod cons and no bed bugs contrary to other reviews. However the bathroom resembled a dungeon and we managed to collect a frog, 2 x cockroaches and a worm in the space of three nights. Quite a haul! Staff unhelpful and seemed affronted when we dared to request a second toilet roll on our third night... We're relatively new to travelling in this part of the world so don't have much to compare with but expected better.

Quiet Place
Desa Motel is a small family run lodging with a large laundry business operating separately. The laundry office is where you book in. 10 units with a small neat garden and common area that divides the accommodation units. At night, the outside is well lit to go back to your room. We stayed at the delux villa which had a small seating area out front. Inside was a fan cooled sitting room with 2 chairs before the bedroom which had a king size bed and aircon. The tv is in here which has 3 local channels. The back room had a small fridge, coffee making and a bathroom. Directly opposite are two eateries,Tomato which offers cheap Indian style meals and Selyra which is a popular local eatery well worth visiting. This motel is not on the beach so a 750 m walk is required to Tengeh Beach which is next along from Cennang Beach. If there is any swell on the beach then I recommend Tengeh Beach, as far to the east as possible to get the calmest water. I have read a few Agoda reviews and wonder if the complaints of bed bugs may be the case of leaving doors open and lights on in the tropics with the result being obvious. We have been staying in similar quality Asian rooms for years and are yet to have any infestation to talk of so maybe we are lucky or there may be some misinformation getting around? The rooms are not cleaned so often but with tiled floors and a broom provided we did not have problem. We stayed 8 days and were happy with the place.

Worth staying for the price
In Langkawi, there are plenty of accommodation options. I will suggest places close to beach rather than in Kuah town. (After all, you are here for the beach). In that respect its location is good. Beaches are at walking distance and there is a good food outlet right in front. If you can have your car, parking is no problem. The reception is not open 24 hours so you will have a problem if you want to check-in at late hours. It is green with plenty of plant & trees in the place so you would encounter a few bugs during the stay. You don't get daily room service. Rooms are of good size and comfortable and at a quite place. Will recommend the place to anyone on budget.
