You can get more info about Johor Bahru here
Staying in Johor Bahru is much much cheaper than in Singapore and indeed that’s what the hotels want, is for people to enjoy Singapore but stay in Johor Bahru. But JB can hold its own nowadays and most of the hotels are running 80% -full.
Everyday in Johor Bahru something new is unveiled and with theme parks and premium outlets opening I think that the hotels will do OK for your business.
These are some of the hotels Listed in Johor Bahru
The Newest Hotel is a boutique one called the Jade hotel and sits nicely facing the waters of the the straights of Johor, and I will get some info and photos soon. for now i have stayed at all the ones below and found them very good. in order of my preference.
