I was in Phuket and felt that I had to visit Patong just to see if it was as people described - it is....
I stayed at the C&N because it was cheap and in the right place. The crazy Bangla road is a very short walk away and the beach a few more minutes walk.
The room was tired but clean enough. The balcony looked out onto the side street where the hotel reception is located. Fridge, safe, A/C, shower etc all worked and were clean enough. The railing on the balcony was VERY low and going out there after a few drinks to admire the (dull) view would not be a good idea.
Breakfast was included in the rate and was good. Staff all spoke good English and were very friendly.
If you want to sample Patong for a day or two this place is fine but I wouldn't bring the kids and would not stay too long.
