Staying at the beach in Hoi An... do we need to book first?

We're planning a trip to Hoi An mid October and have booked a couple of nights already in town, with the idea of finding a place near or preferably on the beach for another five days. Is it likely that the beachside places might be booked out? Can you usually get a better 'walk in' rate, anyway? Or, maybe we should just book online. We're considering the Ho An Beach Resort or the Palm Garden.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Go ahead to book now because you travel in peak season. Most beach hotel and resort are fulled.

Yes yes and yes. Book in advance. There are not many rooms left.

For beach resorts, you dont get a cheaper walk in rate, the agents rates often to be better.

Palm Garden is right on the beach, Hoi An beach resort you have to cross the road to reach to the beach.

May check on Golden Sand and Victoria if the other 2 are not available.

I disagree a bit with the others. October can bring some pretty bad weather at times. If you do not lock youself in, you can change your beach destination to Nha Trang or Mui Ne. It may be high season in Hanoi, but in october Hoi An will be at its slowest. You shaould have absolutely no problem finding a resort on the fly. Here is a link to weather in Vietnam

Thanks Owee I was wondering about that admittedly we will be in Hoi An for a week or so towards the end of October but go there knowing it is the wet season, but couldn't understand that having said that people keep saying it is high season, same for Hue where we thought of going to while in Hoi An but don't want to book in advance

I agree with travelsense. I have never in the danang/hoi an area received a better rate by just walking in. The negotiations can go on for an hour or two, and you still won't do better. IMO Better to book first -. or be prepared to be frustrated for a couple of hours....
