“A hidden gem and deserving of goodstay rating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

I booked Equus Motel/Inn because it has the "goodstay" rating from Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)...and I have to say that they truly deserved it. It was very clean and well maintained. The rate is also very reasonable... 60,000 won for a triple room but 50,000 if you stay for more than 3 days.

The triple room I was checked into has a double bed and a single bed. The bedroom as well as the attached bathroom was quite spacious. The bed was really comfortable and the sheets were cleanly washed. The bathroom has a bathtub and the toilet with built-in bidet. The hot and cold water were also working.

Amenities include lotion, gel, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, hairdryer, hairbrush, comb. There is a small refrigerator with 2 bottles of complimentary water everyday and also a kettle for boiling water. There is also a TV, not LCD, though, but it works just fine. No wi-fi internet in the room but there is a computer in the lobby with free internet. There is an elevator but for some reason, it wasn't working during our stay but the owner helped us with our luggage.

It is located on the Jeju Olle Trail Route 9 near Sanbangsan Mountain, which is on the west part of Seogwipo, and Hwasun Beach. There is a beach and a free swimming pool with slides within 10 minutes walking distance. There is a bus stop within 3 minutes from the hotel but I don't know where it leads to. If you have a car, it is a good base for exploring the East and West tourist attractions. Jungmoon Resort is around 15 minutes by car/taxi.

I like the area, it was quiet yet convenient as there were restaurants as well as stores (familymart and GS25) and a bank only a few steps away from the motel. And the owners were really nice and accommodating. Although they couldn't speak English fluently, they did their best to communicate and we got by it. They gave us a free tour around the area's nearest tourist attractions and even gave us food to take with us on our day trip. They were that nice. So I will definitely stay here again if I have the chance to come back to Jeju.
