I was at Johor Bahru recently (Nov 2013) and had selected Oak Valley Hotel at Johor Bahru to stay. As I was traveling with my family, I had selected to stay in the Family Room (#203). I made the booking telephonically and received a polite response. Of course, one could also book through the internet.
Oak Valley is a bed-breakfast sort of place, but close to this hotel there are many eating places. Kip Mart, a large shopping place is a few minutes walking distance. There is also a Seven Eleven close by. Oak Valley is situated in a busy residential area called Tampoi, but exiting and entering into Tampoi is not a big issue. Free internet is available for hotel guests in the lobby; however the hotel is not Wi-Fi enabled. There is a small laundry service just adjacent to the hotel, where we gave our clothes to be washed (costs 2.80rm or approx. 1 USD per kg of clothes).
Coming to the hotel and room itself, I was charged around 150rm (30 pounds or 50 USD approx.) for a family room. The family room is air-conditioned with a remote for control. The a/c worked without any problems. The room itself is large and has an artificial wooden flooring. Electric kettle for preparing tea etc is also available. 3 bottles of water was also available daily. There were two large beds in the room which was sufficient for my family consisting on self, wife and two young kids. The beds were of good quality and we had good sleep on both our nights stay at this hotel. There was also a medium sized cupboard for placing your things. The bath room itself was small in size but there is a heater for hot water. Toiletries were just about adequate. HDaily house-keeping service is also available. There could be small improvements made in the room, such as provision of a mini-refrigerator. Having small kids, one needs to keep milk, drinks, juices etc in the fridge. This was the only issue that we faced in the hotel.
Overall, it is a safe and decent place to stay, specially if you have business to attend to on the west side of Johor Bahru city.
