Were in December 2013. Gathered spontaneously, I chose free hotel near a beach. I looked at answers - not badly. But actually awful hotel, bugs in a bed, we had early in the morning an excursion, at hotel restaurant a rat grabbed from bacon of "buffet", on food huge cockroaches, towels as sexual rags were washed and repaired the operated....

We just spent 10 days at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the overall atmosphere is quite nice. Room was nice and clean and even had a small balcony. However, doors are thin and you can hear everything that goes on in the rooms next to you, and we had the bad luck of having really,... More

This place is run down, dirty, and lacking any kind of good customer service. Upon arrival we were straight away faced with eyes rolling up when I asked to see the room before we paid, which everyone should do! The rooms are running off some sort of alternative electricity invention where all the power is channelled through some sort of... More

Pretty decent lodging facility and close to local amenities. I had one of the rooms towards the rear of the building so noise was not an issue. Breakfast was OK. I surprisingly ate a majority of my meals at the hotel restaurant. Pretty decent food with a variety of choices both local and international. Remember to tell them how spicy... More

Stay at Local Motion during every visit to Karon Beach, Thailand. It's situated right in the middle of the action and the main beach is less than a 5 minute walk. Much more relaxed location than Patong. A bonus is the professional dive company 'Eco Divers' located right next door. Matty and the crew will help you with all your... More

the hotel is situated right in the middle of karon's nightlife scene, therfore it is very noisy. the windows are so thin that it doesn't make any difference if it's open or closed. in your room it feels as if you were sitting in a bar - you hear all the laughter and music just like in the street. this...
