Excellent budget deal
Golden Inn is a new (as of December 2015) motel-style spot with very good value rooms, though it is located a little bit out of town.
It’s found around 1.5 kilometres south of town on Route 1081, which isn’t a problem if you have transport but makes for a bit of hike if you don’t. Having said that, there are several cafes very close by – though they do close early - plus a 24-hour convenience store opposite. Despite being named ‘Golden’ all room exteriors were painted a vivid emerald green, though fortunately the spacious and spotless interiors were white. Rooms are huge and come with attached kitchenettes, but while the latter at the rear do have windows, the main room lacks any. We assume it’s to keep the noise from the carpark down so if you’re planning on spending any time in your room this could be a disadvantage, though if you’re just sleeping there it shouldn’t be a problem. Plates, cutlery, microwave, fridge and coffee and buns are all thoughtfully provided and we had our morning coffee outside on the front door step. The bed was excellent and also huge; air-con, WiFi and hot shower worked well as did the TV if you’re a fan of Thai soaps. An excellent deal with a fixed, year-roun rate of 400 baht.
