We have 4 places to stay in and around Quang Ngai.
Accommodation is spread out, so the trick to staying in Quang Ngai is to decide where to base yourself based on how you’re arriving or leaving. You can stay near the train station, bus station or Highway 1A, for instance, or on the northern edge of town which brings you closer to the Son My museum, My Khe beach and Sa Ky port/Ly Son island. Wherever you stay, don’t feel like you’re missing out by not “exploring the town”. There’s nothing much to see and the accommodation, ranging from mediocre to dismal, makes a case for not lingering.
The obstacle to spending more time at My Khe Beach is the lack of decent accommodation. The area is on the decline and some of the hotels are truly awful. My Khe Hotel is the best option because it’s the only decent option. We also inspected Hoang Sa Hotel and Pho Bien–both are way past their due date, grotty and in dismal shape. Avoid.
