“Great budget stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great little motel with a really nice pool. Rooms are huge and comfy, a bit old and basic but not too bad. A/C works well. Area is super quiet but you are on the hillside of Patong - so the beach is a 15 minute walk. For the price this place is really really great.

Although, don't bother with motels cafeteria - everything is half price elsewhere - go right to a family mart for drinks, go left to some breakfast/bakery places for food. There are also some decent bars just down the road as well.

ive just returned from my stay in Valero Guest House Patong where i stayed for 25nights,the reason i always stay here is the hotel is relatively small and friendly you have the owner Inigo who is Spanish can talk in many languages and you see him every day talking and joking with the guests, the rooms are basic but spacious with all you need ie fridge,telly,chairs,large bed,power points,good lighting,aircon and ceiling fan,shower basin and toilet,wardrobe,with plenty of storage areas also the rooms and bedding are cleaned everyday by a cleaning crew of 3 girls who are very good at their jobs and trustworthy as many times i had money and an ipod i left in the room,and there are safety boxes in the reception area,you do get some guests taking girls back to their rooms but you dont really notice this,also the Valero has a nice pool to relax in or lay on the sunbeds provided so for me a fantastic Guest House at very good rates

Room Tip: i find the rooms on the ground floor are best as the stairs leading up to the higher levels are a bi...

Absolutely great place to stay in you're looking for a low budget place. It's not right down in action of Patong but isn't far from all the hustle and bustle. There is a place right next door that will rent you a scooter for $5/day. That's right, $5 for the whole day. Our room was always clean when we came home. There is a 7/11 within walking distance and plenty of little restaurants all over. The staff was always helpful and pleasant.

Can not fault this place. Large basic rooms, aircon, fan, TV, fridge, hot showers with good water pressure
Pool which catches morning sun, providing a nice place to cool down. If you can, reserve a downstairs room, walk out of patio doors for direct access to pool.
Beach, main entertainment area, only an easily walked 15 minutes away. The hotel is away from the crowds and noise, with plenty of
bars, shops, places to eat within a few minutes. For the first traveller
to Phuket, Indigo will provide a wealth of local knowledge and advice.
I enjoyed my stay so much have booked for Feb.2014.
Motorbikes can be rented from the owner Inigo very cheaply.

I cannot image better value-for-money as at this guest house. Rooms, although basic, are very spacious and clean, with big and comfortable bed. With A/C, big fridge,tv and spacious wardrobe, not need really anything else.
Pool is not very big, but still great after all day travelling around.
But what really makes the difference is the staff. Always attentive and willing to help with a smile on their face. Specially from the manager Inigo, who made our stay really enjoyable and easy. He booked for us the taxi from and to the airport, bike rental, excursions, and gave us every tip about best bike excursions, beaches, bars and restaurants all around Phuket.
I cannot say anything wrong about it and I will repeat without any doubt on my next stay in Phuket.
