Cheap but out of town
A kilometre or so out of town on the Cham Thewi Road and about halfway to Lamphun Hospitel, Thareerat Court offers affordable no frills rooms, with the location on a busy highway being the main disadvantage.
Yes, the motel-style format lacks charm but the rooms are spotless and comfortable, staff are friendly and helpful and for 350 baht you get air-con, WiFi and hot water. If your budget is tight, the fan-cooled rooms are just 250 baht. If you’re a light sleeper, you might want to avoid rooms near the main road. Overall if you can afford the extra money, we think the Jom Kaew is better if for no other reason than the central location, but if you’re on a tight budget, head here.
