Last month (Sep 2011), I stayed at Sato Pansiyon in Goreme because it offered a better value than the hotel I stayed at before.
Sato Pansiyon is owned and operated by a young couple. The wife cleans the rooms herself.
The location is all right, a little uphill street off Goreme's main artery, just a 10 minutes walk from the "otogar", but then Goreme is just a small village, nothing is far.
I was offered a triple room (all for myself), with a private bathroom, and more importantly, a lovely view.
The room was quaint, with a high, wood beam ceiling and an unusual door that closed with a wood beam across, and a padlock rather than a keylock.
There was even a hair dryer (which I personally don't need, but this is for your information).
The bedsheets were obviously not changed from the previous occupants, and the room and bathroom appeared to have been cleaned rather superficially, but there was hot water, soap and toilet paper.
The shower faucet was so rusty that its left handle came off the very first time I used it.
Despite that, I spent a quiet night at Sato (also because there were no other guests), and could see the balloons raising among the fairy chimneys from my window in the morning.
What I liked most about Sato was the room (the ceiling. the door). What I disliked most what the cleanliness level.
However, I would recommend Sato for younger people, for the reason that it is a little uphill and it doesn't have all the comforts people of a certain age are accustomed with.
