There is absolutely nothing sir. Not even a dhaba. Rambha and then Gopalpur on this side and Vizag on the other side. Why would you want to stay in that place?

If you go into Srikakulam town (4 kms off the NH5 bypass, you can find some decent hotels---I remember staying in one Nagavalli Hotel 7 years back.

I second that, either you stay in Vizag (lots of choices for all budgets) or you stay in Bhubaneshwar/Cuttack/Puri.

What do you guys think of night halt at Gopalpur on sea?, it being just 8 kms off and with plenty of options there.

Arrey Capt Da, what a surprise! 2 Kolkata bhpians asking for the same route?

Just for info, when are you planning the NH5 trip? And what are the places you're planning to visit. You can read my itinerary on an earlier thread in this same section.

Nagaveli is still one of the better off hotels in Srikakulam. But Srikakulam is closer to Vizag than Ichchapuram. So you might as well stay in some hotel like Meghalaya or so in Vizag.

He wanted to know about hotels near Srikakulam---please refer to the starting post.

If you want, Gopalpur is also a good option---it's an 8 km detour from NH5, off the Berhampur bypass.

Another option is Moti Hotel in Berhampur town---but you gotta drive through hectic traffic for about 7 to 8 kms.

I would suggest either stay at Berhampur or Gopalpur ( Distance between these 2 places is around 15 Kms) or stay in Vizag... I used to travel a lot in this route and do not remember any better place to stay overnight .. Meanwhile the distance between Ichhapuram and Berhampur is less than 30 Kms .. So why not spend the night @ Berhampur .. You will get an AC stay for around 500 - 700 Rs. I heard from my cousins that Nandan is a good place in Berhampur ...

If you want to stay near the beach then Gopalpur is the place ...

@Captdey : That is a very nice info that you have put up.
Can you please share the road conditions in Orrisa and AP, and time you took between each pair of major points you travelled ?
Also, do you feel the OTDC place you stayed at is a nice family friendly place ?

Thanks.

Congrats Capt Dey on the smart choice. But finding accomodation in either Rambha or Barkul (another Chilka facing resort of OTDC in the same vicinity) around the weekend isn't that easy. They mostly stay booked for weeks in advance.
