Worth getting the breakfast rate
Great place to crash for a quick overnight to check out a couple of tourist sites in the area. Only thing to note is that it isn’t in the heart of Gwang-ju which we didn’t realise (totally our fault!). Excellent breakfast!

Nice SPOT!
Located in a rather "interesting" neighborhood of wall-to-wall "drive-in hotels", The Spot is a small, clean and modern hotel. Rooms are light and spacious, well air-conditioned and the included breakfast and dining area welcomed. The staff goes out of its way to remember your name and to accommodate, however requests were often "lost in translation". For example, each morning the front desk asked if I wanted my room cleaned. My response was "no need, but I would like my towels changed and the garbage taken out. Each day I received a large towel, however the rest remained unattended too; this however is a small matter compared with the overall comfort of the hotel. An added plus were the numerous convenience stores and the "Sandria Sandwich Shop" located across the street which we frequented while there. Another interesting feature is that the remote control is for everything - lights, aircon, television - in the room!

Well appointed in Gwangju
The Spot is new (in older building) with well appointed rooms and good service in a location that is OK in terms of restaurants. The river is nearby behind the hotel and one can walk or run for a long distance uninterrupted by traffic lights. There is a Lotte Mart store nearby that has a wide variety of fruit and other food items.
