Excellent location, close to beach, shops, main street without the noise! Beautiful rooms, so clean! The staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Excellent value for money (We walked in off the street and were offered an impressive reduced rate!)

We didnt trust those few bad reviews and so we checked in on the friday and checked out half a day later and 5000 baht lighter. It is seriously the worst excuse for a hotel I have ever visited in the WORLD. The pool is neglected and disgusting. It hasnt been cleaned since prehistoric times...and even the dinosaurs decided against it. We thought we would ignore those haters but we really shouldnt have because it was so bad...we moved up the road to a just as cheap but about 10000 times better place called 'verticolor' which is a upper market hostel like a travel lodge to those from the UK. Anyway as my title says...PLEASE...just trust the reviews. This place is so bad.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

We have just checked out of the Samui Ocean Hotel. We weren't even there an entire day, and were forced to spend the entire day trekking up and down Chaweng to find an alternative place to stay!! Admittedly, we didn't pay a lot for this hotel, but even so; it really isn't somewhere I would recommend to stay, and I urge you not to be fooled by the cheap offers as it just isn't really worth it. A lot of the reviews on here also say that people only stayed for one or two nights; we were looking for somewhere for eight, and longterm this hotel just won't come close.
It seemed a bit out of the way for us, but we had just come from a more central part of Chaweng. Admittedly, it didn't seem far from the beach, but perhaps that is one of the only things going for it. The room was clean, but small and very, VERY simple. There were cracks on the wall and it just seemed in desperate need of an overhaul...AND A LIFT. There are so many stairs just to get to anything. Plus there wasn't anyone to help us with our luggage, which compared to everywhere else is really quite unhelpful.
The rooftop pool was vile and forgotten...and the other pool is in the reception area. The pictures to us, made it look like it was outdoor too; not in the strangest part of the hotel it could have been!
I really couldn't bear to spend just one night here as I don't feel it met even my fundamental idea of basic or comfortable. If you were desperate, maybe...but only once you've spent the entire day looking for somewhere better.

stayed at this hotel while on sticks. staff amazing, couldn't be more friendly or more helpful. close to beach. far away enough not to hear planes at night but close enough to get to where the bars are if that's what you want. rooms clean and well maintained.

Okay, this is a budget hotel, so we didn't expected much, but still there are some basic baseline which this hotel does not fulfill:

1) Staff is not friendly and not professional enough. When we arrive, there is only 1 single guy at the check-in area which seems fairly new with his job and busy playing with his Facebook.

2) Room condition is clean and spacious, but no towels is provided and we need to go down to ask the guy again, and he grab us 2 blue towels with pink stains.

The hotel basically is a shop-houses converted hotel. It have 2 pools (one at the lobby one at the rooftop) which I doubt who will go to swim because it's looks extremely small! Will not consider to go back to this hotel again, will definitely willing to pay extra a few hundred bath to get a better stay!
