I like the staff there.They r vr helpful. Hotel rates r cheap.n room is large and comfortable as well.The only thing is that at night some unconsiderate neighbours talking and laughing out loud outside.their staff would still do housekeeping although you did nt request for it.its like part of d service to keep ur room clean.

After arriving on the early ferry (that's a whole other story) we decided to walk to joy motel. It's not a terrible walk, only about 2km and it was still kinda early. When we arrived, it was hard to find the desk as it's not labled. We thought it was just a Chinese temple. We waited about 15 min until someone finally came down. We were able to check in early at least. There isn't too much to do in this area and the wifi is decent but they advertise tv, with only about 10 channels and none came in clearly. Not too much to write about this place except it's cheaper as far as places go on Langkawi.

Me and my friends had a great time staying here . The shower is hot and powerful. The beds and floor are clean. Lots of parking. Air con room.
But you definitely need a car to get around for food and entertainment. Definetely recommend this place if youre on a tight budget.

I stayed this motel for 2 nights with my friends and we were satisfied with this motel. We stayed at the family room which have 2 single beds and 1 double bed.The double bed was big enough to fit 3 adults and the beds were very comfortable. The room was big. Air con worked very well and there was free Wifi in the room. The room was spotlessly clean and the toilet was clean too. There is also a water dispenser at the corner of stairs to refill your bottles. If you are renting a car, you will no need to worry for parking place in Joy Motel. There is provided lots of parking place for you and it charged free.

We arrived at the hotel and there was heaps of people in the lobby celebrating the Chinese New Year, yet none spoke English and none were staff to help us. We waited 45 minutes to get our key, and the girl who gave it to us didn't check our names or anything and didn't speak one word to us, just threw the key at us! All night there was fire works that we could hear directly out of our window. The room pictures are very deceiving as the rooms are tiny. Oh and the power cut out every 15 minutes, so no hot showers or even lights. Horrendous stay so we left first thing in the morning even though we'd paid for 4 nights!

Just shocked at first because can't find the entry to the motel plus its attached with the temple. However i'm pleased because the room and surrounding very clean. Even though the water flow at sink very slow but its still okay since the flow of other water tap is normal. Its also have nice location since we arrive at langkawi international airport, we can go around the sand black beach and visit other interesting place before arrive to the motel..at evening we go to chenang beach and shopping along the road..the next day we cross the middle of the island to makam mahsuri and finally go to airport..So in 1 day we can visit all interesting places and round the whole langkawi island.

The look from the outside might throw you off, but once you enter the room it's just like any hotel.

Our room have nice comfy beds & LCD TV. And they provide a water dispenser so you have free flow of drinking cold/hot water! It's a clean & quiet place to stay in.

One minor issue was the sink leaked when we stayed, but they fixed it within 24 hours. So other than that the place is great!
