Parking too limited overall good
Good, decent and clean room, good location
Good services, clean, attitude good
Room and toilet is clean and big bed is as big as shown. Receptionist is very friendly. Air-conditioning is cold enough. All the necessary utensils are provided. Walking distance to gurney or you can grab a car with only rm4. it's definitely a good choice to stay in.
Small but clean. Near to anywhere. Finally, cheap price.

Expect a decent place to sleep
This is a purely no frills hotel. No fancy interior, dated furniture, no gyms or swimming pool. Don't expect quality reception for some TV channels, and don't expect plentiful parking. However, their beds are really comfy beds and I slept really well on them.

Aftr check in, the key card cnt be access to the room due to receptionist doesnt program the key card & we have to go down to program it. Room is okay but toilet heater is not funtioning well & the toilet door very difficult to close & open. Bed is comfy & nice location.. Room clean & maybe cn provide toothbrush & toothpaste.. So far ok ..

So far so gd
1 room keep having ant in the bed and the cleaning services are fast to help us settle it. If u have food is gd to throw outside room dustbin and dont leave food on table if not the ant will come very fast. Room was clean and the air-con is gd. Noise reduction is poor sometimes can hear other room talking if they talk loud. Lvl 3 room the wifi reception is very weak so have to improve. Location was very near to gurney shopping center but need to travel by transportation. Near by got bar, coffee shop and muslim indian food.

Unassumingly pleasant
Affordable, no frills Inn on Kelawai Road, next to Gurney Drive. Frankly, I like this place. It's not a 4 or 5 Star Hotel but it's got everything: wifi, Coffee making, TV, Aircond, parking etc. My room was situated at the back of the building with a view towards the sea. It's quiet and feels like home. Only issue is parking space which is limited

Now Known As Good Hope Hotel
Cleanliness – OK. It might be an old establishment; 12 years to be exact, but it is clean. However, every time once open the door, there’s strong cigarette smell, but the smells fade away upon entry. *weird* Location – Average. It takes about 20-30 minutes on foot to reach Gurney Drive Hawker Centre. But it takes lesser to reach other good restaurants nearby. If you need to head to other areas, would always need to take bus to Komtar and then switch to other buses. Usually most buses go to Komtar. Else if you are heading to Batu Ferringhi, would need to take bus 101 from a bus stop that is 5 minutes away on foot from hotel. Need to ask receptionist for exact bus stop location cause for different routes is different bus stop. Facilities – Free bottles of water and basic toilet amenities are provided. Good room size. Wifi is free but slow. Room comes with refrigerator, dressing table, LCD television, electric kettle, cups and instant coffee and hair dryer. Security is good because every guest needs to pass through reception to gain entry and access to the lift. But limited parking space. Staff – Good. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Was very kind to lend us umbrella when it was raining. Sleep quality – Bad. The double bed was fine, but problem was the extra single bed provided. It was far too soft that once sit on it, mattress sunk and can feel the metal beams of the bed frame. Also at 6am+ in the morning, there was knock on the door too. Value – Good. Not too expensive and is a good property to consider to lay your head for the night. Perhaps the only really downside about this hotel is if you get the extra mattress, else the rest of the elements makes up for it.
