Semerah Garden Hotel (SGH) offers one of the most affordable rates in the low budget category within the vicinity of Pontian district. Exterior might be a bit tacky but overall there are more hits than misses.
As the hotel is pretty new, most of their facilities and equipment are new and clean, bathroom and sheets are clean with no odor, and the beds are spacious. The only minus points for this place would be lacking in service from staff (requested bedroom slippers and it never came), minor design flaws (bathroom shower and position of light sources), and auto lock door feature is glaringly missing (we have to lock the doors manually)
Breakfast is pretty standard, parking is aplenty and wifi is spotty at best (hotel area is only covered by Streamyx broadband). Overall with the price we pay for, it's worth the money.
