“Decent price for prime location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

We stayed at this location for a night, and found it to be quite decent. It is located along the main street right across from the beach, and beach towels are provided for free. Free Wifi is also provided, and the signal strength is decent. The room was clean and simple, but do check to make sure the washroom window is closed, as mosquitoes are a problem. Reception was not ready for us when we arrived to check-in. We had to wait, while they made sure the room was ready. We had to ask for towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner, as the items were missing from our room. Do turn the temperature of the air conditioning unit down low, as it kept the mosquitoes sluggish. Check-out is at noon, but the hotel will store your luggage for the day upon request.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you have lots of heavy luggage, ask for the 2nd floor rooms.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2012

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.
