My friend and I recently stayed here for our trip to Karon beach and found this little hotel to be a great value. The hotel is in a prime location right on the waterfront. We stayed in a standard room with a queen bed and the room was clean and simple with a small window that faced the ocean. The bathroom door is a sliding slatted door so if you're traveling with a buddy, you may occasionally need to provide each other additional privacy :). Also, there's a flat area for toiletries at the back of the tub that tends to get wet (and drip to the floor) while showering. We saw this at other hotels we stayed at on our trip, as well, so I guess this is pretty common in Southeast Asia. The person who takes care of the place is very friendly and while he doesn't speak much English, we didn't have any issues communicating with him. The hotel is a little hard to find (it's above a Washington jewelery store) and is close to a main street with a lot of restaurants (and a pad thai street cart if you walk up it far enough). We got to peek into a deluxe room with a balcony facing the ocean and oh man I wish we had splurged for that room! The hotel is quiet and while the lobby doesn't have air conditioning, there is a fan to keep it cool.
