Lotte Jang Yeogwan (Motel): From the Lonely Planet...

Another basic yeogwan. Once you've seen one, you've seen them all. The room basically consisted of a bed, a TV, a mini-fridge, and a fan. The room was relatively clean. We did, unfortunately, have a wasp's nest right outside our window and a big hole in the screen, so we kept our window shut.

One thing that didn't work out for us was our reservation. We had called ahead because it was a long weekend. When we arrived, the lady had no idea that we had even called. Be warned!

One couple that was with us on our trip had a room that was not very clean and they decided to switch to another motel. Hair all over the place, bathroom not very clean, etc.

Royal Yeogwan: Cheap, but you get what you paid for

This motel is very close to the bus terminals (less than a block away), and only a 20 minute walk from the train station. The room was small, but very clean. The windows to the outside were big, so we were able to let lots of light in during the day. There were all the usual amenities: TV, air conditioning, in room mini-fridge, and so on.

Unfortunately, the bed was brutally hard, and there was only a blanket, no bed sheet. The pillows were quite thin as well. This was a little bit difficult for me, as I'm used to a much softer bed. My back was very achy in the morning, and I didn't sleep very well.
