Budget airport option
The Garuda Hotel is a budget option by the airport.
It will be adequate for anyone looking to just transit in Sumbawa Besar overnight and who isn’t fussed about not being right in the thick of things in town. Plain rooms are functional and pretty clean, with simple bedding and okay bathrooms, and are set in a couple of yellowish buildings running back from the road. Rates are reasonable for the standard and unlike the nearby (and newer) Hotel 99, the staff here are quite cheery, friendly and capable of being polite. It will do at a pinch, but we’d rather stay in town for the better selection of restaurants.
