Based on the reviews on tripadvisor and the very reasonable price we decided to stay at the Tropical Inn. Rooms are large with everything you need and more... we had a TV, bedside tables, safe, wardrobe, kitchen style sink etc. Lindsay was helpful, giving advice on things like quickest way to get around, how to avoid being scammed(!) etc. Good location, not far from the shopping centre or beach at all, nice places to eat and drink nearby with very friendly people. Its a half hour walk from Patong Boxing Stadium (not the one near the shopping centre). I recommend going to see Muay Thai whilst you're there, great experience!.
In the room, the bathroom could do with a shower curtain to prevent everything getting annoyingly wet, which does happen with the the shower heads being fixed on the wall, minor point though. When booking the hotel my details said it included breakfast however on arriving I was told this would cost extra. Since the weather was so terrible whilst we were there we decided not to wake up for breakfast anyway and didn't bother with the matter, their breakfast time finished too early in my opinion. However, considering the price, I don't regret staying at the hotel.
Some advice if it does rain whilst you're there, go watch Muay Thai and take a trip up to Phang Nga area if the weather's better (25 degrees+ and sunny there whilst it was flooded in Patong at the time). We did a ATV tour there which was amazing!
If you're limited on your budget, I would suggest staying here. Despite the cons mentioned, it does have everything you need, and you can spend the money on more important things if you don't plan on being in the hotel too much, as we did.
