I have stayed in Hotel Capri a few times just one night a time because I live in Phuket and its the cheapest place i have found in Surin. The bed is comfortable, the hot water showers work fine, the aircondition has always worked. I have stayed in the cheapest room in the hotel, which has no windows (would not recommend that) but for my purpose (to avoid drink driving home) it was fine. The more expensive rooms I have hired for my parents when they visited and they liked them. Sleeping at the back of the hotel is cheaper and quieter, if you can do without the ocean view (I have never stayed in those rooms with view so I cant comment) but I know we slept fine even when big parties for new years at the back of the hotel.
The manager was very friendly to us in the morning as we had our coffee (very good). Local expats come to eat the food often so thats a good recommendation I think!. This is a hotel to stay in if you want cheap, close to the beach, friendly and not concerned with pools/swim up bars etc. It says what is does on the tin - cheap rooms, close to beach/italian food/ clean and basic. Do not stay if you are expecting resort type facilities/gardens/pools/childrens activities.
