The original Aran Garden just down the street from Aran Garden 2 has closed its doors and the owner is now remodelling this budget hotel near the day market.
Rooms are simple but clean and spacious, and the cheapest fan versions are better than what you would expect upon first seeing the hotel. All rooms come with free WiFi, basic hot water bathrooms, desks, TVs and springy beds. Staff are welcoming and they're happy to arrange transport to the border. While Market Motel is the clear winner in the air-con category, Aran Garden 2 is perhaps the best in town if going for dirt-cheap.
