Clean and well maintained property with just basic amenities with helpful staff.Close Proximity to Railway Station and Bus terminus. Room is small and is better for a short visit and recommended for business travelers.

Stayed here for two nights during my business visit to Surat. The hotel like all the other ones is within close proximity to the railway station. The hotel has been maintained very well and the staff are helpful and courteous. The room has many charging points which is what I liked. Bathrooms are hygienic and have running hot water. The only bummer is the breakfast which is only a handful and is more of snack. The food is served at your room and the service is quick. The food was not that great but does the job. The menu also has non-vegetarian options.

It being exactly opposite the train station, makes it convenient no matter at what time you have to catch the train.
Coming down to rooms, they are medium sized, relatively clean.
Bathrooms are also clean.
Linen was ok.
Room service was fast. Laundry service was not upto the mark.
Breakfast was good but keep in mind they serve limited portion of either any veg preparation or egg preparation.
Please opt for rooms on the inner side.
Rooms facing road might get very chaotic.

this is suitable only for travellers coming by train/ preferring to be close to the railway station for other reasons. definitely not suitable for travellers coming with their own cars as there is no parking facility. they manage to get you one slot, if available, in a place full of filth. you might probably crush couple of rats while parking. some of the rooms might have a strong scent of cigarette smoke. they managed to give a room which did not have the smell. the hot water stream in the tap was dysfunctional. it was a little difficult with kids in this season of winter without hot water. perhaps not worthy of a rating @ tripadvisor. i would not have chosen the hotel if it was'nt there in tripadvisor.

It was indeed a very good hotel just a minute away from the Surat Rly Station with new built clean rooms, prompt room service, good food (À la carte), wi-fi and was full value for money. Would surely repeat my stay at Hotel Merit.

The hotel is good but not value for money as it’s expensive for what they offer to customer. Otherwise nice place to stay. Not much variety on breakfast and food is decent. Neat and clean area. Staff is courteous. Travel desk is not that good.

First of all its a very nice hotel for family stay within budget.
Location is very convenient for railway travelers. It takes only 2-3 minutes walking from Surat railway station. Hotel's ambiance is very nice with co-ordinating staff and management.
Rooms were suited to our requirements and were clean. All possible amenities with best room service were available. Food was good.

A hotel for comfortable and convenient stay!

This hotels service level with respect to basic customer satisfaction is horrifying.They firstly lack basic pest control. I had booked a three day package with Oyo rooms here. When o discovered cockroaches in room and bathroom, I wanted to change rooms. They couldn't arrange for that due to all rooms being occupied. Then, I insisted I want to check out of hotel asap. The manager simply said that if I did Id have to pay my three day whole package tariff, irrespective of when and why I check out. When trying to complain to them, instead of a sense of shame about pathetic service, I get arrogance on their side. Their only concern is to make me pay my whole package money. After many repeated calls to front desk, I finally got them to atleast put pesticide in the room so that I could sleep in relative peace that night. I guess this is one of the few hotels in a small town like Surat, so they don't give a damn as they enjoy good room occupancy anyway. I've taken pics and attached of the cockroaches, however, they were moving fast, so pics are blurry. I'm checking out first thing in the morning after having been on phone with Oyo rooms for hours yest to modify my package check out date.

Though I received confirmation for a room, upon entry with a corpulent Mullah in corner watching desk clerk review my passport, I was told to leave. DO NOT even think to stay here with a confirmed booking if you are not its' kind.
