We arrived in Sri Lanka very tired and sleepy and it was 4AM so we took a tuk tuk that brought us to the nearest hotel to the airport. I think it was about 45USD and the price was so not worth the stay! I suggest you read the reviews before hand! The cab guy cheated us, we had to pay at the airport first then he drove us to the hotel. He was loitering around for a tip but after seeing the hotel condition, we decided to skip the tip.
We slept for 4-5 hours then checked out. My boyfriend couldn't sleep because the mosquitoes were biting him. Also, NONE of the rooms had any TV and no running hot water. There was a open window from the toilet and someone from outside can spy on you if you shower! We had to pull the curtains tight!
When we were walking downstairs to the receptionist, there was a man sleeping on a fold able mattress on one of the floors..just plain disgusting. The walls of our room were stained, the windows wouldn't open, BUT thank God the air cond was working!
When we checked out, I told the receptionist about the service, the room and the shower. He said they are on schedule to revamp the place (add TVs and much needed hot water shower) Anyways they had some loud music going on when we checked out and the kitchen/restaurant was open (I didn't dare thread in anymore, after having enough of the room) so I asked the guy at the counter if he could fill up my flask with water which he did and we both walked out of there-never going back again.
