A handy enough location to restaurants etc but a little way uphill from the centre of town (not that you would probably want to be staying in the actual centre of SS anyway!). The staff are very friendly and the rooms are kept very clean (with a complimentary bottle of water each day) but the beds are a bit hard. The bathrooms are good but shower only. Free WiFi. No frills but everything you need.

Terrible maintenance of the common areas and in the bedrooms, I stay here 1 year ago and now that i went again found very poor conditions, room not clean enough, an uncomfortable bed, and the worse AC smell. The gym is dirty and the machines didn't work properly. The pictures do not reflect the reality. The hotel has potencial but ir needs string

We are staying here for four nights. It is a very good budget hotel with all basic amenities like free internate, swimming pool and well equipped gym. Location is very good. Some of the good malls and restaurants are at very short distance.

I've stayed at Marela many times, and every time since the first day the service is grate... they always greet me by name and the staff are very friendly. The rooms are nice and well cleaned. The hotel is well located in Escalon, near restaurants, shops and other amenities. Excellent hotel for business travel on a budget, good WiFi connection in the rooms and other areas. The hotel has no elevator, something to consider if you have mobility issues, but the staff will go out of their way to help you.
