“Stay at RNS, Murudeshwara”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Great location, just adjacent to the temple and on the sea shore. Rooms are poorly maintained and could have been better for the tariff they charge. But there are not many hotels to choose where you can have a decent stay. It's better to plan and stay in some nearby location.

Hotel needs some love as its a bit run down. Great location as its directly on the Arabian sea next to the giant statue of Shiva. We had a balcony room and could view the beach. The room like the rest of the hotel needs some repairs, paint, cleaning, etc. No WIFI in the entire town. Had a massage in the spa which was nice. Breakfast service was late so we departed before it was served. Not many choices in the small town.

Room Tip: Beachview was nice

Property is just OK. Nothing else to boast off except view from beach side rooms. But there are not many options in Murudeshwara, if you are planning to just spend a night here. Small rooms. Bed is like as if you are sleeping on floor, very hard bedding. AC was good but room looked more like a Dharamshala type of room.Only good point is the view from the room towards beach side. Staff was good and also allowed us for late checkout as we went for Scuba diving. Do not forget to go for Scuba diving is you are visiting Murudeshwara, it's safe and fun. One of the cleanest waters in India for Scuba diving.

Room Tip: Look for beach side rooms on 3rd or 4th Floor.

pathetic stay. dirts all over, foul smell, poor room service, exorbitant tariff, rube behaviour by RNS employees will screw your happiness of the location. unforunately you do not have too many options in murdeshwar except RNS. they have some how captured this lovely place

Be careful with RNS employees at murdeshwar. being a tourist spot and moving crowd location they dont have to bother about regular customers. because of this and lack of stay option they are rude with almost all the tourists.. beware...!!!!

We had stayed in this hotel twelve years back. It was new then. Since there are not many good options in Murudeshwar, we had to opt for this hotel again. Unfortunately, it was a bad decision. We will tell you why.

Firstly, the price of the room does not justify the quality. The management of RNS has not invested in this property for a long time. The door the bathroom are turning black having not seen a coat of paint for a long time, the bath screen is dirty, the electrical switches are broken, the bed linen is not clean, the so called mini bar had a broken door.......the list can go on.

Secondly, the complete floor where we stayed had a bad odour. Not sure of the reason. The housekeeping seemed to be very poor as we could see broken foot mats, cigarrette buts in the aisles.

Thirdly, the service is definitely not guest friendly. We had to wait for half an hour for a cup of tea in the morning and could get it only after reminding them twice. Can you believe that you won't get South Indian Filter coffee in South Indian hotel?

Fourthly, the in room dining service is bad. It is not guest friendly, If you reach there around 3 PM, you don't get anything except sandwiches. Not even curd rice!

Fifthly, there is no aesthetic quality in anything. The management seems to be not interested in professionally running the place.

Sixthly, the buffet spread for breakfast is no value for money. Also it is not aesthetically laid out. It does not provide a good dining experience.

The positives of the place is location which overlooks the sea. But for this, it was a severe let down. Mind you, the tariff even in May - when the sun is scorching - is not cheap. Thus it is definitely not a value for money.

We would not recommend this place to anyone. Check out if you have any other options. Since the beach and the whole place is full of filth, it makes sense to make a day trip to Murudeshwar by either staying in Gokarna or Udupi.

Have visited Murudeshwara on 2nd and 3rd May. Since we travelled from Bangalore and reached early morning the rooms were not vacant to be occupied. We had to wait for some odd 2-hours at the front-desk for the rooms to get vacant. Anyways the rooms were good, neat and clean. The room-service provided was good too. Though there was no complimentary breakfast or lunch, we have tried breakfast on 2nd which was decent enough.
The best part of the stay here was the sea view from the room, which was awesome and relaxing to stand in a balcony and look at.
Overall its a good place and from the temple to the sea shore to any other eateries around all were at walk-able distance from RNS residency. I would suggest anyone who's visiting Murudeshwara to stay at this place.

Stayed in RNS residency on our trip to Murudeshwar. The hotel is awesome. We had a 4th floor room beach facing. The room had stunning views of the beach. Did not try food in the restaurant. The service including front desk, check-in was smooth.Overall fantastic experience.
