6/10 Good

There was nobody at the check-in counter in the morning when we wanted to try to talk about an early check-in. The water is shut off at night and I don't know when it turns back on. It is serviceable -- we were able to get a shower and sleep in a bed. We didn't try the food. It's accessible to Bidiya, al Mintarib, and Wadi Bani Khalid. Near a new highway that is just getting finished as of 12/2018.

Nothing special. Acceptable for a one night stay. Annoyed that staff insisted on scanning passports when all other places that I stayed in Oman were fine with a copy or just transcribing the information. Wouldn’t stay again.

Comfortable, Clean and Expanding.
The Oriental Nights is a small hotel that is plenty comfortable. We stayed in some new rooms that didn’t yet have WiFi, but it’s available in the Lobby. We received a helpful email ftom the hotel prior to our arrival. If you don’t want to pay the high prices for a desert tour or Wadi tour, then this is an ideal place to stay. The roads to get here ftom Muscat are great. We went on an awesome desert sunset tour. They do have a restaurant but choices are limited. Not really anywhere else to eat close by. We appreciated the friendly staff.

Great place to stay
When we arrived at the hotel, we've been a bit scared because from the outside it doesn't look great. But in really it was great. As a family of 5, we had 2 huge rooms with bathroom in the new building. They were super clean and confortable. Staff was fantastic too. Very friendly and willing to please us. Best of all... the cheap price we paid for a night in Oman !

Value for money
Convenient location where very few hotels are available. Friendly staff, good room, clean. Food reasonable quality, not The Grand Hyatt but we came to visit the Wadi Bani Khalid and get a meal and a place to sleep.

Perfect basecamp
From the outside it appears like a motel, but the beauty lies inside...it is a guesthouse and the boss and his staff are really interested &caring about your well beeing.also they want to know yoyr story! kitchen is good It's all about location as it is a perfect base for excursions, but we found it also relaxing. Note that there is a little garden behind.

Gute Lage, aber nicht mehr
Das Positive ist die top Lage um bereits in der Früh das Wadi Bani Khalid zu besuchen bevor ab 10 Uhr die Touristenmassen kommen. Das Hotel selbst wirkt steril und ohne Charme, das Standard Doppelzimmer war das schäbigste Zimmer während unserer Oman-Rundreise.

Etape agréable sur la route du Wadi Bani Khalid
Hôtel neuf ou rénové, confortable et pratique. Une sorte de petite piscine vient d'être ajoutée, mais les abords et jardins sont encore en friche.
