Set back from the seafront and away from some of the livelier areas, this is a very well built basic accommodation with pool and small restaurant. I used as a stopover after scubadiving and it was more than adequate for my 24 hours. Will use again!

Its a walk to the beach, but for the rooms price it's worth it. Breakfast is ok. Rooms are nice and cozy. Surprisingly quiet considering its right on the main road. The pool is nice too, and there is some sunchairs around it too.

The rooms are clean and simple. The Inn is located within walking distance froom the market, police boat memorial and the beach. The pool area is small but relaxing. The staff was helpfulland always seemed happy. If you are looking for a room that won't cost you an arm and leg then this is a great choice.

I stayed here in september 2012 for 3 nights and got no sleep due to the new Disco and live band venue 2 doors away. The accomodation is actually nice and I have stayed there before but beware of the disco. If you are a light sleeper you are in for a bad nights sleep until 2.30am when the bass... More

We booked this hotel based on reviews and were not disappointed. We had trouble finding the place, but when we did, we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly, both at the reception and the pool/breakfast bar. The pool area was nice with sunbeds and palm trees, but if the place is ever full, I imagine it can get very... More

Again, the name of this place could mislead. It has a very narrow frontage onto the main street, which is actually the highway through Khao Lak. The back of the property faces onto an untamed stretch of odorous green river. The bed is quite comfortable and the linen is fine. The airconditioning works well. The TV was fine one day... More

The Motive Cottage Resort is one of those places where everything is just right: you pay the right price for a fairly comfortable room, a pool, breakfast, coffee/tea in the room, and free wifi. All that for £26 a night. Naturally, at that price, you give up luxury (always a very subjective quality) and location. The resort is located in... More

I stayed there for 2 nights only. Small hotel but worth the price. Friendly staff, small but clean pool, nice pool bar, clean room. Small breakfast. 15 min walk to the beach. About 45 walk to the centre of Khao Lak but cheap taxis are everywhere

Rooms recently renovated, liked it a lot. If you prefer peace and quiet, go for the rooms in the jungle end of the building instead of those closer to the road
