The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was good and the Trivia night was lots of fun. When ever I go to Ubon Ratachani I will be staying there. I also met other expats that could help me out with getting supplies for my hostel in Pakse Laos.

I stayed here for a couple of nights with a group of friends and we loved every minute of the place. Clean, basic bedrooms with awesome AC and hot showers. The restaurant is seriously delicious, the best Mexican food you can find in Thailand. The owner is an American who is down to help tourists figure out what to do in Ubon.

To start this review, I must say that I have stayed in dozens upon dozens of accommodations around Thailand and it’s neighbouring countries. So, when I saw on TripAdvisor that this guest-house is rated number one for both hotel and restaurant, in a relatively big city such as Ubon, I was shocked, and decided that I had to try it out. The key here is to remember that the Thai people generally do not use TripAdvisor, so many hotels can have very skewed reviews and unreliable ratings online, as holiday makers and ex-pats will both have very different expectations, also Thais would go online and give a fake review for 30 baht ($1), or would involve many people to go online and destroy a business as a way to settle a dispute – things are very different than in the West. Anyway, I was expecting the number one accommodation in a big city, something special. But when you arrive, it looks like a fairly regular Isaan style residential building from the outside, and there is only on-road parking if you are coming by car. I must say I was disappointed when I arrived. But once you are inside, it is a very relaxed and pleasant environment, and the staff are very friendly and lovely, they genuinely could not be any nicer. It is definitely a low budget guest house with a garden feel, even though it is ranked very highly, this definitely is not a luxurious place to stay, but a great value, family-run kind of place for the budget traveller. And although the price might seem great if you’ve just flown in from NYC or Paris (not sure how many people fly straight into UBP), remember that in this neck of the woods, it’s average. But the rooms are big, light and airy, with large separate bathroom, full mosquito screens, huge, comfy bed and big flat screen TV. And the Wi-Fi is fast too, nothing to complain about there! It’s a shame that the restaurant and bar close so early, but then this is farmer country where most people go to bed early and get up early to go and tend to the fields, plus the place is very small, people eating and drinking late into the night would undoubtedly keep other guests awake so I suppose it makes perfect sense. So what are the issues? Staff are incredible, rooms are big and comfortable, costs very reasonable indeed, and they even have a very impressive selection of good-quality imported beers (Thai beer is awful, if you were not already aware). If I had to fault anything, I would say that it is difficult to find (but if you have phone battery you will be fine), and that it is a bit odd to find such a “regular” guest-house to be the number one place in such a big city – although as I mentioned this may have more to do with the clientele of TripAdvisor than the residence in question. If you’re looking for an upmarket resort with fitness centre, room service, and spa, then this is not the place for you, but you should have guessed that by the fact that you can book rooms online for under 600 baht a night. As with almost everything in life, you get what you pay for. But this is a pretty flawless guest-house with a few special touches, offering an oasis of proper beer and Western food in a remote part of south east Asia - just don’t arrive expecting a Las Vegas style resort because of what you read online, it’s cosy, family-run and down to Earth, and above all, very decent value (although I was disappointed to find that Mojo seemed a bit grumpy, but maybe he was just having a tough day).

A very noisy place, to much kids are screaming. Big rooms but too dark and very noisy from others room. You can hear when children are crying inside others room. Restaurants are right outside the rooms so it smells food often inside the room. Sometimes the smoke is coming inside the room because smoking are allowed outside the room. I didn’t try all types of food but the pizza was something the worst l have ever tasted. The hamburger was good. 👍. The staff was very friendly and kind, five star for them but the owner is not what l want to deal with again. He care more about money then his gusts. Sorry mister, you should treat your guest with a smile. Stay there for a few days is okay but long stay is not recommended. It was expensive, even the owner try to tell me it was a cheap price l got of him. Sorry mister but you can rent a room with the same as you offered for half of the price.

Response from brentfenneman, Owner at The Outside Inn
Responded Apr 3, 2019
Alex, We're astounded by your "review". You were here for 2 months and we bent over backwards to accommodate you and to work with your very limited budget. We never heard any of the above complaints from you while here and of course you were free to leave at any moment if you weren't happy here. Just a few days before you were to check out, you tried to extend your stay by 3 days but we had already been completely booked for weeks as it was Christmas. You demanded we cancel someones booking or throw someone out to accommodate your last minute change of plans, something we'd never do to any of our guests. Even though we were not at fault at all for your change of dates, we gave you the equivalent of a 3 nights stay in cash so that you could cover your stay somewhere else. Again, that was for nights you had never even booked with us. Not sure any other owner in all of Thailand would have offered that! Even after that, you still threw a fit on your way out, and then later posted this "review". We have received hundreds of glowing online reviews over the years and encourage all to read some of them to get an accurate view of what the The Outside Inn is really all about. We have been TripAdvisor's #1 rated accommodation and #1 rated restaurant in Ubon every single year since we opened in 2013 because of our commitment to providing top notch service, food, drink, and accommodation to all of our guests.
