Blue Lagoon Guesthouse and Bar
An honourable mention for an off the beach budget option, the farang-Thai run Blue Lagoon has affordable fan-cooled and air-con rooms in a multi-storey building a five-minute walk from the beach.

The ground floor is a pub, which runs a very popular trivia night every Monday and is otherwise a bit of a local hangout for the usual suspects. The fan-cooled room is pretty small, but the air-con option is spacious and chilled. The WiFi works and the staff are friendly. While for a little more you can get a pool at My House, this is a good option for budgeteers who are not fussed about being off the beach -- and who enjoy trivia.
