of course there are-dozens, if not 100s. Just learn the VNese for it: khach san=HTL or nha kach=guesthse-there are also rooms for rent-cheaper, basic, but mostly only for long time. Have that old standby ready- a guidebook with language guide, as no or very limited english will be spoken. Good, maybe a bit small, but new rooms go for 8-10US$.
BUT: it makes no sense to ''break'' by train you even cannot, by bus its hourly in some 4 hrs. Do not plan to motobike it out of SGN (where I am now)-suicidalk and for the frist 100km its only suburban sprawl. Actually the food might be more of a prob by that break.

Thanks for your replies. I decided to go straight from Siem Reap to Mui Ne (good luck with that) instead of staying halfway of Saigon and Mui Ne. I wanted a halfway thinking it would be easier to access both places but since there'd be lots to do (I think) in both places, it would be better to stay 2 or 3 days for each. If you have any recommendations for cheap hotels in Saigon and/or Mui Ne and activities I am all ears.
somtam2000: I love seafood! If you know any restaurant with great seafood, please do tell.
captainbkk: What is HTL? Goodluck with the motorbike and thanks for the advice.
