10/10 Exceptional

It was an amazing experience in Korea. This hotel has the best view and scenery in the area. It’s an oceanfront hotel which has the lake in the back. Our room is an oceanview on the 17th floor. We felt like sleeping over the sea. The hotel staff are friendly and very attentive. There are so many things to do at the hotel. You can rent a beach parasol for free until 6 pm. The infinity pool was an amayas well. It was very beautiful and fascinating scenery in the morning. Overall, it was one of my favourite experiences I had in Korea and definitely want to go back if I visit Korea again.

2/10 Poor

Skybay hotel is a commercial hotel at its worst. The executive room which we booked was small, dark and the ocean view was limited. Staff are fine just not particularly attentive. Everything about the hotel is transactional and about profit and not customer experience. For $200 a night I would not expect to have to pay an extra $1 for hotel slippers. But this gives you an indication of just how the hotel operates. An additional $30 for the swimming pool, additional costs just to use the sauna. Breakfast was mediocre at best. It really left a very bitter taste in our mouths on our last day at Gangneung. Do not stay here unless a tourist trap is what you are looking for.

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.
