Be prepared to wait a while for check in..
Location and cleanliness of hotel was good but some major flaws - we had to wait for HOURS to check in. There’s a system where you get a waiting number but no indication of how long the wait is (and we had arrived quite a bit earlier to see if we could check in early). There are no amenities at all because of their eco scheme - vending machines with the amenities on each floor though which makes you question the ‘eco’ scheme.

위치는 좋으나 체크인을 하기위해 한 시간씩 기다려야 하고 가격에 베해 호텔은 형편 없습니다. 그리고 수영장을 사용하기 위해 따로 입장료를 내야하고요. $350 내고 어메니티도 없는 호텔 그리고 호텔 발코니에 빨래를 걸어 두어서 미관상 보기도 안 좋았고 호텔 주면의 쓰레기도 널려 있어서 별로 였습니다. 체크인 할 떄 프론트에 있었던 직원이 최선을 다하는 모습에 감사했습니다. 아침에 커피숍은 열지를 않아서 멀리까지 나가서 커피를 사러 가야했고요. 젊은 직원들은 친절했습니다.

I am so sorry to write this but I wasn’t happy to stay this hotel. Because they don’t have the screen door. Lots of bugs came into my room. I won’t stay this hotel never again.

2/10 Poor

Such a terrible hotel in Korea.
This is really a non capable hotel which has too much rooms that they can’t even handle, not enough staffs. A bunch of people were waiting at the lobby for check in. Really like a market. I was luckily checked in by kiosk, when I get into the room, it is very tiny and dirty. All dirtiness was on the table and furniture maybe the previous user made it. So annoyed. I don’t even want to complain as I saw how this hotel works from the lobby. This should not called as a hotel. I have never experienced such a terrible accommodation. I strongly recommend Do NOT use this hotel.

We stayed in the ocean view room that looks new. We like the bathroom and beds as they are clean and well managed. Beach, restaurants, and cafes are within walking distance.
