“Good place to crash before you go in to Cambodia”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Nice clean and spacious rooms hot water and aircon, hard to beat for 400 baht. The restaurant is average, and closes At 10pm.

After 6 hours in the train from Bangkok, it is exactly what you need. Staff is friendly but seem also bored with their guests. No loud parties when I was there, just à very good nights sleep.

Stayed here for one night and it was great! Clean rooms, showers etc. awesome Pad Thai at the restaurant. Had it twice! The kids LOVED the pool, it has a slide going into it. We paid $25 for a big room that had a queen bed and a single bed plus the put an extra matteress in for one of the kids.
I'd go again!

Stopped here overnight while getting ready to cross in to Cambodia. The rooms were very comfortable and very reasonably priced - with the traditional Thai rock-hard mattress...but at least the pillows were soft!
I think we were charged top dollar for getting our drive to Siem Reap organized through them - they basically got us to the border had a guy walk through to hail a cab from the bus station and sent us packing for about $70USD but it was handy having the visa's organised by them beforehand.
In short the accommodation is more than reasonable for what they charge and you are not staying on the highway which is nice!

We were taken to the market motel by our tuk tuk driver after asking to go to the inter hotel, but we went with the flow as it was dark and raining heavily.

The motel is basic with large garage style tiled rooms with twin beds, tv, fridge and hot water shower room, also had air con.

We paid 300 baht which was a good deal.

The food was also good so if you just need a bed for the night and some food before the cambodian border run then this place is well suited.

Difficult to know how to review this place because it depends how long you want to stay. If, like us, you are looking for a place to dive into the swimming pool and cool off after a very hot and boring two hour wait to get through the Cambodia/Thai border then you could not find better. All the time in that queue I knew we were only an 80 baht tuk-tuk ride from the pool so it made it bearable. If, on the other hand, you are thinking of a longer stay then this is very basic accomodation and the staff in the restaurant are not the friendliest or most helpful we have come across on our SE Asia tour. On top of that, there's nothing to detain you in Aran. So, a good night halt from Siem Reap to Bangkok but not a lot else.

We went from Bangkok to Siem Reap and didn't know that the Cambodian border closes for night. We had to stay in Aran for night and we picked Market Motel. The room was okay, quite big and clean. But the staff wasn't very nice, they didn't smile and I felt like I bother them when I was checking-in. It was fine for a night, but I wouldn't stay there for a longer time because of the attitude of the staff.

Jake L, Owner at Market Motel, responded to this review, February 29, 2012
We thank this guest, for his compliment about having a nice clean room, however he complains about the reception staff not being very friendly, we have had other complaints about this, I think your perception is correct, when you first look at it, I would like to explain our view of it, and then our guest might form a somewhat different opinion. We think the biggest problem is that our staff speak very limited English. If Shirley or myself are there, this problem doesn't occur, however we cannot be there 24 hrs. A day. We are a budget accommodation hotel, catering mainly to Thai's. Our prices are 25 to 60% less than our 2 main competitors, listed on trip advisor. We cannot afford at these rates, to hire English speaking staff. On arrival guests are shown a "room menu" which is both in Thai and English. This "menu shows the various class of rooms, and their prices, as well as other conditions. The guest merely points to his choice and registers. Registration cards are also in Thai/English. The guest has the option to inspect a room, before committing him/her self. If a guest is prepared to be a bit adventurous,and live with the locals, a good enjoyable time should be yours, many of our rooms are under $10 U.S. If you expect a many star hotel for that, I regret we are not the right place for you. Our restaurant also has a Thai/English menu, with both Thai and western food.
