If you would like to stay near the Penang ferry terminal, there are a few places to stay within a short walk of the ferry in Georgetown on Penang Island.
In a few years time there will be many more places to stay near to the ferry, as this area of the city is being renovated and the whole front along Weld Quay will have some upmarket accommodation and top class restaurants.
But for now, here are the places to stay that are nearest to the ferry terminal.

The Victoria Inn - 2 star
The Victoria Inn is just a couple of minutes walk away from the ferry terminal exit. As you come out, take the walkway over the main road and walk straight ahead down a small road where there is a small food court on your left. The hotel is at the end of this small road where the road meets Lebuh Victoria (Victoria Street), on your right hand side.
My Chew Jetty Homestay
Just to the left of the ferry terminal, you will find the Clan Jetties, with traditional houses built on stilts over the water and small walkways connecting the buildings. It is possible to stay here in one of these traditional homes, along Chew Jetty, where they have just three rooms available for tourists.
Church Street Inn
Located along Lebuh Gereja (Church Street) and just off of Lebuh Pantai (Beach Street) this is a cheap budget hotel, around 5 minutes walk from the jetty.
Once you get into Church Street, you are just a round the corner to the Little India area of Georgetown, which, although not the most popular place to stay in town, has a number of budget accommodations plus a few more upmarket accommodations.
Just a few minutes walk past Little India you come to the most popular area of town for backpackers with dozens of places to stay in and around Chulia Street, Love Lane and Muntri Street.
