Finding budget accommodation in Cape Town is not easy. The price us great but you get what you pay for. The staff were friendly and helpful enough and parking was great. The room is air conditioned but I must say the sheets although clean we're threadbare. The shower floor needs to be rescaled and the underside of the toilet seat not great.

Terrible service, in that they barged into the room at 10:50 despite numerous attempts to notify them that we were not dressed inside and the explanation we got was that they were reminding us that check out was at 11, I was in complete disgust the receptionist did not appease us in the least in fact she stood by that ridiculous policy.

This is a perfect place to stay while in Cape Town. The rooms are clean and the service is great. The price for what you receive is definitely excellent. We walked around the area and major attractions were not a too far drive away. We plan on staying here again.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage request a lower floor, there is not an elevator.

I just spent the weekend at the Check Inn. It's a perfect budget hotel with free parking at the front. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a TV and air con. Rooms are cleaned daily. The staff are really helpful and friendly and will help you with any tourist trips you want to do. We walked to the V&A Waterfront in around 10-15 minutes. The World Cup stadium is right across the street. There are some nice restaurants nearby such as a steak house, the slug and lettuce pub and Mario's an Italian resturant that I highly recommend.

All in all a great stay.

I stayed here for three weeks on a group study tour. The location was great--close to the waterfront--and it's very close to the soccer stadium being built currently for the 2010 World Soccer Cup. It is very bare bones--no restaurant, elevators, chests of drawers, or phones in room, etc.; but it was very clean. It also seemed very safe, and South Africa is a place where I didn't always feel that way. There are laundry facilities in both directions from the hotel, as well as many restaurants and Internet cafes. It's just a short walk to the waterfront and the Victoria and Alfred Mall.

The breakfast consisted of dry cereal, toast, and coffee (Nescafe from an automated machine); but this was sufficient for a morning start.

I stayed here for a week in Feb 08 and again in July 08 and paid R269 per night (I think it may now be R299 per night including breakfast). It had undergone a refurb, although only the facade of the hotel and reception/breakfast area.
This is a cheap and cheerful hotel, ideal if you're in Cape Town on a budget and need somewhere central to bed down for the night. It's well positioned for the Waterfront and the Greenpoint Stadium being right on Main Road. Rooms consist of a double bed plus a single bunk, TV and shower/toilet. Don't expect luxury, but it's clean and with breakfast (cereal, toast, bagel, tea, coffee, hot chocolate) included you cant really go wrong for under R300. The manager was excellent and very helpful too.
