I stayed here on my way back to Saigon, after three weeks cycling around the Mekong Delta. (see details of where I went on Strava - here - http://app.strava.com/activities/66032667)
I can honestly say that unless you intend to spend stupid amounts of money you won't get much better than this in the Delta, and for its price bracket it's way above the average.
Situated down a quiet concrete path (still classified as a minor road in Vietnam), you won't get any scooter horns etc. Just the quiet putter of the occasional scooter going past, or boats heading up and down the river.
Top quality fittings, decent fridge and air-con, and big bathrooms with proper shower doors etc. And they do a really nice hot-pot for dinner.
You can get to it independantly - you don't need to go by boat. My guess is it would take maybe 20-25 minutes to walk (it was about a 7-10 minute bike ride), or a bit longer if you're walking from the tourist office.
Basically, with your back to the main boat station / tourist office, walk straight up the road until you reach Cai Be bridge. Then turn left along the left bank of the river. (If you've got a loaded up bike you might find it easier to take the road shown on their website before you get to the bridge - the one ending at the temple - as the market is quite crowded / narrow)
Then (from the path along the river bank) turn right when it forks, and it's a couple of hundred metres down the path.
Well worth the effort! I wish I could have stayed longer, but I was on a schedule to get back to Saigon in time for my flight home :-(
