Perfect for families
Set on a leafy patch of land a five-minute walk southeast of the bus stop, Baan Suan Peerada is a great option for those looking for a bit more comfort and space while keeping the budget below 1,000 baht a night.
Freestanding wooden cabins stretch back from the road and have a relatively private feel thanks to the abundant frangipani and other greenery. Fronted by large private balconies with tables and glass doors rimmed by wood trim, clean and spacious rooms have orange tile floors, high ceilings, decent-quality firm beds, larger-than-usual fridges, TVs, good-size hot-water bathrooms, free WiFi and maps of Ubon province or faded photos from Pha Taem National Park decorating the walls. The cheapest rooms will be more than spacious enough for couples, while families can take a larger room equipped with two queen-size beds. The green sign out front displays the name in Roman script, but the friendly woman who greeted us spoke minimal English. If you prefer a riverside setting, the owners also run Peerada River View Resort to the north of town, which has similarly spacious and homely rooms starting at 1,200 baht.
