In Pattaya most hotels under 100 USD don't have joiner fee or book a double room you usually don't have problem, on the 50 USD category, most hotels on soi 13, Ma maison, Inn House, Sandy Spring, The haven, dynasty Inn. On the end of walking street Windy Inn.

Also all eastinny and Flipper Hotels, most are located on the busy soi 7-8.

If you want to check the joiner fee of the hotel

If you have no intention of bringing back a girl to your room, the joiner fee shouldn't be a concern for you. You might actually rather concider a hotel where a joiner fee is charged for bringing back girls. There are more then enough hotels in the 50$ price range that would accomodate you. It just depends on what location you need.

Isn't this an oxymoron??/

How can you be respectable AND demand a joiner fee??

Try this place.

"...i am going to stay at a room by myself(this part is really funny...." Yep, sure is!

I usually find it is the cheap hotels that don't charge a "joiner" fee!

Paying a "joiner" fee is usually an option at expensive places anyway (over $50 is expensive for Pattaya.) If you don't bring a girl in you don't pay anything extra!

Hotels cheaper than your $50 range aren't too bad. Check out a few lower priced places for next time - remember usually no "joiner" fee for cheaper places!

In the cheap places I prefer a tile floor to a ratty old carpet. Cheap places, even when only around 400 baht, will have air, hot water, private toilet/shower, cable TV, safety box storage and maid service.

Good luck.

Areca lodge is a great hotel in a great location. I have stayed there manay times but you can get to familiar with one place so this time Sat 27 September we are booked in to Opey DePlace on Soi Lenky. Which is not far from the Areca. 690Bht for a standard room with no joiner fee. Will let you know how it goes
