Across the road and down a bit farther from the bus stop, a very eccentric older man who speaks good English runs this decent budget spot.
His rooms are set in a two-storey motel-style building overlooking the hotel’s parking lot, with greenery stretching out behind. If you don’t mind the cheapo furniture and a few scuffmarks on the walls, the rooms aren’t bad value. They come with springy beds, mini-fridges, TVs, desks, hot-water bathrooms and a window or two. Fan and air-con rooms are identical, and the latter are also supplied with fans. In fact, the owner imparted this info by asking if we had ever heard of katoy (ladyboys). When we cautiously replied "yes," he said, "The room goes both ways too -- fan and air-con, bwahahaha!" Rates during Phi Ta Khon jump to 1,200 baht per night and include a "great big set breakfast," according to the owner.
