            We were greeted with smiles by a girl receptionist when we checked in on 24 December. She gave information clearly and even asked if we need her to make up our rooms during our stay. After informing us that the reception counter is closed at 10pm, she graciously gave us her mobile phone number in case we need assistance after 10pm. The motel housed within an association building with a big car park, was well maintained, clean and tidy even at the balcony on the 2nd level. The rooms we occupied were clean and well-maintained with all devices working properly including the tv, shower and air conditioner. We enjoyed the numerous selection of eateries nearby Joy motel including a few 24 hour mini marts

            The service, location and price

            Joy Motel is located very strategically, where you are able to reach to the four corners of Langkawi. The staff was very nice, and they recommended a few good places that I should visit. I even rented a car from them at a lower price. Although the room was a tad too small, it was clean and worth the price.

            Good service, though I could do with a bigger room”

            It is close to the town centre and not exactly hard to find. Moreover, it is located on top of a Chinese temple so you will get a glimpse of multicultural Malaysia.

            I am travelling with a baby and luckily was given a room on the first floor. Kettle is not provided but the management did provide a hot-cold water dispenser. I called room.service once for iron & ironing board and got them a minute later. In term of hospitality, I would say, could be improved. We arrived at 2300 and experienced some difficulties finding the hotel as its signboard has not been put up yet. No one was there to welcome us and we have to look for our room ourselves (the key was placed in the room, btw). A good place to kip in if you are planning to go to Langkawi for shopping and sight-seeing purposes, but not a place recommended for you if you are searching for a place to relax and spend the whole day in your room. Worth every RM spend (which means more chocolate for the family). Good job, Joy Motel.

            Cheap price, great location and clean room

            It was quite a pleasant stay at Joy Motel though at first sight, we were shocked with that the motel is located in Hokkien Assosiation, which does not looks like a motel or hotel at all!! The stays were a plesant one where famous futy free shops and as well historical / cultural sites are easily reached (within minutes of driving). Room was clean but lacking if hair shampoo (or perhaps the shower gel provided was meant for hair as well?) and toothbrush+toothpaste, shower cap, shaver, but with that kinda price, you can't be expecting that much, right? Overall, I would recommend this motel for a budget stay. P/s breakfast not included and if you were to check in late evening, you would need to call up the receptionist for check-in

            Centrally located, Caring Staff, Worth the money

            I went to Langkawi to attend a conference. Joy Motel is centrally located in the middle of the city and very near to Ferry Jetty. Staff was very friendly and caring. Neat and Clean environment.

            Less then 5 minutes walk to HIG mall, cafe, halal food stall for breakfast, satay for late night dinner, food truck sell laksa, nasi kerabu, nasi kukus and selection of dessert (kue) taste of kelantanese. Took about a minute drive to pekan kuah (coco valley, duty free mall, banks) about 5 minutes drive from jetty kuah to this motel. Actually, this motel share building with buddha temple (ground floor level). Value for money and family friendly.

            Great. Helpful Staff. Very clean room. New.”

            Wifi. Comfort room. Very Clean.

            This motel is better than the 3 and 4 stars hotel in Cenang Beach we stayed previously day before. Happy and satisfied with this motel. No disgusting smell. No itchy bed. Rooms well maintained. We booked 3 rooms and the second night we continued our stay there. Helpful and attentive staff. Clean room and comfort bed. Lcd TV but not very clear. Hot shower available but water pressure not strong enough for me. We went to snorkeling at the last day in Langkawi and we checked out early in the morning. We requested the staff that "can we go back to the hotel to take shower before we proceed to airport" . To our suprised she said okay without any extra charges and towels provided to us (seven persons). We will go back to the hotel again. Thanks Joy Motel.

            Room cleanliness, nice staff and nice location.

            Feel comfortable to stay. Only two negative things: the signal of TV and Wifi are poor, however it's not a problem for us because we're come to spend time for travel not watch TV or use Wifi. We definitely will book back this motel again if we come Langkawi again in future.

            It is enough for those who are on a budget travelling”

            It is in Pekan Kuah which is great especially when the HIG Complex is just behind this motel for us to do some shopping. To add, not only the HIG Complex, but it is also near to all other chocs or houseware outlets. They provide the basic needs sufficiently like towels and water heater. You can even request for an iron. The air-cond works super cold which is good to me. They also have a spacious balcony that you can hang your wet clothes there with the help of plastic chairs. The room is very clean. Overall, it is enough for me and my friends as we are students and on a very low budget. For an affordable/low rate motel, it is very sufficient to us.

            value for money, ample parking, near to major spot

            The price is very affordable, but clean and tidy for a short stay. Centrally located in Kuah Town hence near to all major spots around town. Next to the main road accessible to many other parts of the tourist spot around the island, hence good for self driving tour. Don't expect much room service for the price one is paying, but is good enough for a budget stay. Oh, it has a big parking lot and ample of parking space, unlike many other motels/budget hotel in shop houses where one has to "hunt" for space with other shoppers.

            We spent 2 nights at the Joy Motel. We like it especially the big room, big bed and it's very clean. Big parking space too as we were rented a car. The location is a bit far from the happening town of Chenang. However, it is peaceful there. And near to the HIG mall and other duty free shop. But, there is no lift and our room is on the 3rd floor. It was tiring.

            Surprised at the quality of the hotel”

            The rooms cleaness and comfort

            Completely surprised when we saw our room. One of the best we have had for the price. We ended up staying more nights and then had to leave as they were fully booked. We were gutted to leave and the next hotel we went to was more expensive and no where near as nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. As for the area, it's good for shopping and cheap beer and chocolate but that's about it. it's best to hire a motorbike to go and find the beach as staying near the beach costs a lot more. Would stay here again if I ever went to Langkawi.

            The sign board of Joy Motel is small and located at around 4th floor and doesn't facing main road. The room was HUGE and very quiet surrounding. Very value for money. However, problems arrives when you're hungry because the choice of dining are very limited. I'm not enjoying food at Kuah Town. :(
