The Motel168 is the least expensive hotel I've stayed in for a very, very long time. At about $20/night including breakfast and wi-fi that's quite a deal. The hotel is a little used looking, especially in the hallways. But the rooms are clean and spacious. My room had a hard queen bed that was comfortable and made softer by folding over the quilt so that half was under me and half on top, sleeping bag style. No complaints about the room. There are paper drinking cups and a kettle but no tea, green or otherwise. They provide a small bar of soap and shampoo and body wash are in the shower. There's no closet and no safe in the room. Wi-fi is adequate: slow and I couldn't send any attachments.
Although the breakfast starts at 7AM the buffet does not begin until 8AM. The 7-8 fare is hard-boiled eggs with dumplings and rice porridge. The buffet is a standard Chinese breakfast buffet: stir-fried veggies, dumplings, porridge, toast. Drink the water — not the tea or heavily sweetened coffee from the Nescafe machine.
Do not get a room overlooking the street—drivers in Chongquin love to honk their horn (driving seems quite rule free here) and I have little doubt that a room over the road would be really loud.
