Tim and his staff did a tremendous job in making me feel right at home in Patong Beach. While the town itself was not my cup of tea, I still had an enjoyable 3 nights stay at Kellys Hotel. The rooms were nice, probably the best of my entire Asian trip. Cleaned every day and the hotel is in a quiet location. If you have to be right near the beach it's not the best location, but it a 10 min walk to the mall. Or you could always take a 40 baht bike taxi ride to the beach which should take about 5 minutes.
I would definitely recommend this place to families/couples.More
