The location is great with the ocean on one side and a big lake on the other. Room is smaller than expected and the bathroom is not convenient to use at night.

No disappointments on the choice
Third time at Skybay - now this is my go to hotel for when Gangneung. On my first stay a year ago I got an upgraded to a upper level corner room which has the best ocean view among all Gangneung hotels. The second time I needed a two bed so didn't go for the corner room but this last time I got myself a room where it was perfect to watch the first sunrise of the lunar new year. :)

I felt uncomfortable service at housekeeping because they kept visiting my room and asking me when I wanted to do it, although I put the "do not disrupt"

8/10 Very good

The stay was very pleasant, with daily sunrise views while overlooking the sea, and kudos to the hotel for providing large bottle soaps and shampoos, in an attempt to be eco friendly. The food options within the vicinity was also quite extensive. The two main downsides were the very crowded parking situation and seemingly cheapening experience of requiring guests to pay for the pool. On the former which may be unique to periods of very high occupancy rates (e.g. over the new year), it would be good if the hotel can provide English translations to their automatic carpark systems. On our check out day, we did not know of the option to enter the car number for retrieval in advance, and ended up having to wait for 35 minutes for our car, which was not the most pleasant way to end the stay. On the latter point, it was frequently mentioned in the reviews, so we knew what to expect, but still an odd thing given the relatively high hotel charges.

4/10 Fair

주차장에서 근무하는 직원들의 태도가 상당히 고압적임. 주차면도 객실 수에 비해 너무 부족함. 환경을 보호한다는 핑계로 객실 실내화를 제공하지 않으면서 1층 자동판매기에서 구매하도록 하는 것은 이 호텔 수준을 감안할 때 도저히 이해할 수 없음.

Wonderful location and hotel
Wonderful location right on the beach in one of the best places on Korea's East Coast. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and an amazing view of the ocean makes this a great hotel to stay at. The only downside is that when it is full, the parking lot doesn't have space for all cars.
