4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

The Sand Inn was a chance find. As we had planned to stay at another Hotel in the same area. But as we got down at Patong from the Airport transport; we realised that the hotel we had planned to stay was closed. So we decided to take a walk on the road to check for other hotels..and landed at the Soi San Saban (lane); Sand Inn..

The room was perfect size for two and the rooms seemed to have been well maintained. The sheets were clean, the mini-fridge stocked and the bathrooms clean with crisp towels. We were on the second floor hence it used to get a bit noisy rarely.

But the best part was the location! Sand Inn is on a cross road; opposite of which is the popular Bangla St. Adjacent to the Hotel is a great club; playing live Rock music; called the Rock City. If you are a Rock music buff; head over here; they have one more joint near the Patong Beach.

The lane adjacent to the hotel has decent restaurants and tattoo joints. The lane is well managed by a parking assistant. And you also have a place to rent Scooters from right next to the Hotel. Plus a Scuba Diving training center..

The management was warm and not too "Hotel Friendly"; which is good. We got a non-interfering lot and they didn't have any curfews or issues with us bumping up in the wee hours of the morning.

The famous Simon's Cabaret too is 2-3kms only and one can catch shared cabs right from the main road in front of the Hotel. Plus the biggest mall in Patong - Jungceylon; is 100ms from here; with a great Carrefour outlet..!

All in all this chance discovery was a boon and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Great for people who want a basic, comfy, clean hotel. Don't expect an kitsch designs or colors here.

Would definitely come over here next time I am in Phuket!

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Sand Inn for about a week and I loved it. It's not a 5 star hotell..mabye not even a 3 but I think it was grait!
The location is perfekt! Chlose to everything and the staff are very kind.
And for the price (8oobath at that time) the rooms are more than ok.
The only thing that was bad whas that they have no elevator, and there was only rooms on the fourth floor left.
But I think I will stay there the next time i visit Thailand to, Im not a person who spends so much money on a room when there is so much to buy outside =)

So a big YES for Sand Inn from me and my darling!

And sorry for my english, im swedish haha.

The Sand Inn is far from a 5 star resort in looks but its service and location and price make it a great stop in Patong. It is close to the night club district ( so close you will want a back room!) . The desk is eager to help with tours as is the scuba shop just behind the hotel. The coffee shop is fine but the proximity to the restaurant row is a real plus. There seems to be a younger crowd here but not many westerners. Many Japanese, chinese et cet. I have stayed there 3 times and each time am pleased. I find I always get the best price faxing or emailing the hotel directly.

  • Liked — Friendly eager toi help attitude but no english
  • Disliked — Can be loud in front rooms but just ask to be moved
