The main drag through Khlong Prao offers a handful of affordable places to stay, but we questioned the value of places like 3 Seasons and Garden Hill, which have air-con rooms for no less money than you'll pay closer to the beach.
Let's face it -- the main drag is no picture postcard setting. One spot that did stick out however was Jungle View, a solid choice for budgeteers seeking dirt-cheap accommodation and don't mind a 10-minute walk to the beach. The place has a cluster of basic woven bamboo bungalows facing a small lawn behind a large open-air roadside restaurant. They come with the only features you'd expect for the price -- firm bed, mosquito net, moveable fan, front porch, and private bathroom. Some of the bathrooms have hot water while others do not, but both options strangely go for the same rate. The owners are friendly and atmosphere relaxed.
