I've walked through many hotels in Margao while searching for a single room for 3 nights. Even tho beaches are empty in the off season, Margao seems to be always full with business people and the prices are high. 500 for ridiculously dirty rooms, here they gave me very fair deal 800Rs for a huge clean triple room with TV, hot shower, balcony and strong fan. It's not 5star because I had a colony of ants in the room, the pillows were quite grotty and the wifi in rooms was too slow, one needs to go to reception. The manager was really nice, let me stay until afternoon free of charge. Also there is cheap good restaurant and liquot store next door, great package.
