Good option for a tight budget
81 Langpanich Rd, Mae Sariang T: (089) 700 9928
This longstanding guesthouse’s somewhat basic rooms manage to be cheap without being grungy plus there’s a pleasant family atmosphere to the place.
The small rooms have clean white sheets, windows, a fan, and shared bathrooms that are functional and clean with hot showers -- for the price you can maybe ignore the lack of decoration or frills. There are a couple of air-con rooms -- one upstairs and one downstairs, which are decent value too. The restaurant serves excellent standard Thai fare all day with a few Western options such as sandwiches and pasta dishes -- perhaps try their interesting fusion dishes such as spaghetti with green curry or tom yam -- all at reasonable prices. The coffee’s very good, too.
Also very useful for all Mae Sariang visitors is the fact that North West rent out motorbikes and bicycles for 200 and 50 baht per day respectively, though they don’t have many of either. WiFi access is possible throughout and they have plenty of trekking information available from the knowledgeable and helpful owner. This is a very friendly spot -- it's just a shame it is not on the river!
