We arrived at Sugar Palm in Oct 2013, the room was satisfactory, nothing special.
Friendly and helpful staff
Clean and tidy hotel
Breakfast is good, with a lot of choice for everyone
The beach is just a 5min walk
Not the best of locations - Karon area was fairly quite, it seemed like Patong was the area to be in, everyone talks about it and there seems to be a lot happening there, however bare in mind it's also more touristy so you will be paying touristy prices around there too.
Lighting in rooms is poor
Only one toilet roll per day per room, no additional provided in room
Only one pool which is small, in other words long and narrow
No gymnasium - just a few treadmills and one cross trainer
Forget about negotiating, even the taxi drivers nor tuk tuk drivers are willing to negotiate on prices. There is a regular and reliable bus service which we used for 35bht one way to travel to Phuket town and Patong.
Generally an average hotel in an average location at an average price.
