        Are you looking for a place to stay that is not only has a beautiful view of the ocean but also has character. The wooden doors and balconies add a nice touch to this place. The bed is really comfortable for sleeping.

        Pros: the room is greatly designed with fantastic sea view. For family with children, can consider to request for children room as they have facilities and toys for children and the room is very cutely designed. The breakfast store is a few shops beside the inn. The receptionist is very friendly who will assist you when you have any problem. Cons: the air-conditioning breaks down on our second night of stay but the owner is nice to let us to shift to a fantastic family room.

        The room was small and cramped. The refrigerator was broken. They needed convincing to get us a new one! The bath was smaller than the picture. Everything about the room was different from the pictures. This was NOT the best room in the house.

        Unique exterior with a gorgeous sea view”

        Sea view from the room, spacious, highly affordable

        Booked a family room (4 pax) room although it was only me and buddy staying (2 pax), just so we could each enjoy sleeping on a queen sized bed. The hotel was extremely identifiable along the road as it was the only unique looking one amidst the row of standard looking buildings. The room was dated in design but clean and functional. Travelers looking for a split toilet where the shower is separately located would be disappointed. Both the toilet bowl and shower area are located together, so be prepared for a wet floor if you decide to take a dump after a shower. The balcony's sea-view was definitely the highlight that made us chose Stone Inn. There is no breakfast service provided here, but there's 1 (and only 1) store next to the Stone Inn that serves fresh and piping hot breakfast daily at affordable prices. If you're staying here for multiple days, you might have to stick to the same food from the same store, or walk further down for another 50m to the 7-11 and get a microwaved packed meal. Hotel is located about 2km+ from Kenting Main street, and unless you have transportation to-and-fro, it would be a hassle waiting for the 9188 bus that stops outside of the Stone Inn just to catch a ride to the main street as frequencies for it are about 45min to an hour between buses. However, you can also rent an electric scooter like us from the stall next to the nearby 7-11 at rates of 800NT per day (driving license not required). Travelling around Kenting on electric scooters were the highlight of our trip but caution is to be taken for riders not used to riding bicycles as you would be sharing the roads with tour buses and cars. If you're not confident, I'd suggest taking the bus or taxis.

        Nice clean rooms with a beautiful view of the sea!”

        Comfortable beds, great shower, and stunning view.

        My two friends and I stayed in the family room on the top floor. The beds were comfortable, great sitting chair that we nicknamed "The Acorn" , stunning view of the ocean close to "Nixon's" head, and a 7-11 right downstairs. To anyone that's visiting this neck of the woods it's best to have your own transportation. There are not many taxi's in the area. We rented scooters for an extremely good price which made getting around easy. We enjoyed our stay and I would return and stay at the Stone Inn again. Loved it!

        relaxing by the sound of thre ocean”

        friendly staff, cute design of the rooms, balconies with deck chairs

        It’s a lovely little hotel just 50 meters from the sea, with the view to the one of Taiwan attractions (Sail or Chuanfan rock), and only 300 meters from a cozy sandy beach. The hotel is made so unusual that even among the other ones stands out immediately. Tourists, who are brought to the promenade to take pictures this " iconic Rock ", takes the picture of this hotel not even less. All the rooms are different. Our room was with a four-poster bed and a comfortable sofa -round , the in the next room has an armchair hooked from the ceiling, and a pebble floor in hall. All rooms have large balconies with deck chairs and a beautiful view to the sea. The staff is extremely kind and courteous , though English at all. They were so kind and took us to the town first night free of charge. There is wonderful restaurant "612" nearby, delight us with a couple of evenings for its cuisine . It should be taken into account that the hotel is located 5 km from the center of Kenting . There are buses to it but we prefer to rent a car as there are many attractions around the south coast. Fortunately our European driving license was OK, and with the car we saw everything we wanted. In brief - our best advice for this hotel especially if you plan to rent a car or moto .

        Arrived at the hotel on the day, in the evening, but the staff still describes in detail, the rooms spacious and comfortable, the scenery of the day looking the sea we enjoyto, so we think it is worth choosing Stone Inn.

        well we were lucky that we got the best room in the hotel (i think), so it was very nice. The location is awesome because the beach is right in front of you. I went during the low season so i could always find parking right in front of the hotel. The tub is big and the water is not so fast so it took awhile to fill up. I loved the atmosphere and everything :) it is a bit dated but i think it is definitely acceptable considering the price is fairly low and the view is really awesome! the room is also really big!

        good choice for money ”

        The inn is just located beside the sea with a great sea view, u can watch sunset from the balcony. Although it has a distance to kending street, very quite at night.

        Nice sea view. Beside 7-11."”

        Big rooms, nice sea view, nearby bus stop & 7-11

        They do not provide breakfast but beside the hotel, there are food for dining in. Rate great. The hotel has a very nice sea view. There is 7-11 beside and bus stop near by. Bad thing is that, its quite a distance away from Kenting city.

        Great Place to stay in Kenting”

        Large bathtub, Balcony with Sea View

        Rooms are not to small and comfortable. We even had a separate "bed" for our little daughter. Everything was quite clean. The interior is fancy as you can see in the pictures. The hotel offers no breakfast but there is a 7/11 right next to it where you can buy stuff and eat breakfast at the balcony or in the room. They have a water dispenser in the room which offers cold and hot water and cups and small plates.

        staff, location, room

        We booked it through Agoda, but when we got there they had upgraded our reservation for a better room. The new room was enormous! We really enjoyed our staying although we had to leave earlier than planned.

        Good room view and special decorate

        Very close to beach but far from Kenting village center. You have to rent a motorcycle or a car instead of walking. No elevator and narrow stairs, most of the time, there is nobody at the front desk.

        Poor Facilities but Nice Staff”

        The staff are very nice and helpful.

        The facilities are very old (e.g. toilet cannot flush, air-conditioning have temperature limit, shower has very little running water). Also, it is not very clean with a lot of dust visible.
