Reviewed 12 January 2011

Located above several hostess bars so very noisy. Old dirty mattresses in the corridors. Room dusty. Cigarette burns on sheets, towels threadbare, dirty pool, no service or services to speak of - i.e no breakfast included in the 1,300THB per night fee. Hotel had smell of old cigarette smoke. Old out of commission a/c units left on ceiling collecting dirt and half hearted paint jobs. Bulbs out and not replaced. Fours levels but no lift. Came home from first night out and found large cockroach in room. Checked out next day for better Araya.

There are many pro's and con's to the Sand Inn.
We own a guest house ourselves and therefore we can be more understanding or more critical....
The Sand Inn, is in a great location near resturants, bars, a short walk through the temple opposite and you are at the clock tower and Night Market. 10 minute walk to the beach.
The hotel has its own bar downstairs and offers laundry service, taxi service with pick up from airport. Computers with internet at only 10bahts for 30 minutes. It has a swimming pool that is a nice temperature, it is in a shady garden, however after a sweaty day out or a hot day at the beach it is very nice to cool down.
The hotel is run by a Thai family who work very hard, friendly and helpful organising trips/taxi's etc.
We paid extra for a deluxe room as we are a family of 4, we wanted the extra outdoor space that the shared courtyard offered. The room was spacious and slept the 4 of us comfortably. Good sized bathroom with sea views in the distance. The courtyard over looks the temple and is great suntrap, you can watch the sun set over the hills. Beautiful! We were really lucky as the other 2 rooms that shared the outdoor space were hardly ever used so we had the space to ourselves.
Safety deposit box in the room.

However, there are some con's. I don't know if our room hadn't be used for a while but it was very dustly, we just felt that the whole room needed a real good clean. There was no drawer space, big wardrobe though. The outdoor table was old and falling apart, nice chairs but could have done with a sun lounger for each room, rather than 1 to share. The room wasn't deluxe but ticked boxes that we wanted, like large room to sleep all 4 and outdoor space.
We have stayed in Jing's before and although they didn't have a swimming pool, they offered clean, spacious rooms with courtyard and a cheaper price.

The main problem was the noise, there is a small plaza next to the hotel and I appreciate there is little the hotel can do about this but they played live music until midnight 6 nights a week LOUDLY. Not even ear plugs could drown it out. If you want late nights it is not a problem but we didn't always want to be up until midnight.

We did sometimes feel that the hotel was used for the bar girls as a brothel, with small children we could ignore it but with impressional teenagers I would have found it a problem.

All said and done, with a good clean and a few little touches this would be a great budget hotel.
