Hu-Shuian Motel: Jacuzzi Motel in Chiayi

I found this motel on the internet. The pictures on the website is showing a luxurious motel with modern furniture room, Jacuzzi bathtub, beautiful dining hall, and reasonable rate. So we booked it online to see how real it is!

Hu-Shuian Motel is located suburb of Chiayi City, about 5 KM from Chiayi Railway Station. We took a cab that cost NT$200 (US$6. 80) from Chiayi Railway Station. The motel is situated on the main road of Section 1 Daya Street. It was a quiet neighborhood despite it is by the main road. We walked into the motel compound and noted that there is no hotel check-in counter. Then, we spoke to of one the staffs working at the guard post, and in fact they were people who supposed to give us the keys to the room. They registered us and passed us the key and the meal vouchers for supper and breakfast.

I noted that people drive into the motel and parked with a garage that attached to their room. It is like parking in your own garage at your own home. This is the motel concept in Taiwan.

Our room is on the first floor, like a studio apartment unit with a long corridor. When we entered the room, we were happy with it because it is a big room, clean, nice furniture, and the lightings are very cozy. It has a big bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate shower area.

After we took a shower, we walked around the motel and had supper in their dining hall. They served congee with all sorts of small Taiwanese dishes and pickles, fruits, toasts, noodle, rice and etc. Coffee, tea, fruit juice and soya milk are available. The next morning, they served similar food for breakfast.

Overall, despite we did not get what we imagined from their pictures on the web, but we are happy and glad that we had a good experience staying in one of the motels in Chiayi.

We paid NT$2280 (US$77) for the room and we think it is worthy!

Motel California

The Motel California in Chiayi is a "business" motel. Yeah right, make that a "monkey business" motel...

The chief selling points here are the hourly rates and the special garages they have, which are used so no one can see the license plate numbers of the customer's cars.

Two of the chief industries in Chiayi are (1) Monkey business motels, and (2) private investigators hired by suspicous spouses who try to figure out who is staying at these fine establishments. (Kind of like one hand feeds the other...)
