I stayed at the Hotel Nazar for two nights in March 2011 over my honeymoon after reading positive reviews online in my search to find a hotel near the ruins at Ephesus. Hotel Nazar is a cozy hotel run by the brothers Osman and Asim and their family. It is a very clean, very amenable hotel. It it also pretty bare bones, without a lot of amenities, and reminded me a lot of the hotels that I stayed in when I traveled in provincial France -- simple and straightforward. That said, I think we made the right choice for staying in the area. Salcuk is very close to Ephesus and the hotel arranged for a resonably-priced tour guide. They also gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner -- Edjer Restaurant -- we went both nights that we were there! Lastly, they were very accomodating with our weird travel schedule and both picked us up at the train station at the last minute and got up very early in the morning to make us breakfast before our departure. Overall, I think this hotel was a good value and I felt very taken care of.
I want to add that my husband and I traveled here in the off-season (early March). Which was perfect in terms of seeing the ruins without huge crowds. However, I imagine Salcuk to be a lovely and lively town when the weather is a bit warmer and more amenable to outdoor dining and relaxing by the pool. That said, there was still plenty to do in early March and the hotel rooms were adequately heated and comfortable.
