The hotel was in town (Kakinada, India). We stayed there for 6 days, the management was friendly and helpful. The room had A/C, and it was nice and clean. We received a news paper ever morning and free breakfast, and they had good coffee. The price of room are 900-1200 India Rupees and the exchange rate was 42 to $1 US dollar. I couldn't believe the great price for the room, but it was true.

I tried to rent a car before leaving the U.S., but wasn't able to. Our friend (Victor) in India told us that we had to rent a car with a driver. In Kakinada, there wasn't any rent a car places that we where able to find. So Victor help us to get a car and a driver, which was very helpful because there wasn't many street signs or road sign. A car and driver is needed if staying in Kakinada.
