Generally speaking, Sakhon Nakhon is a destination for accidental tourists, rather than a destination in itself. If you're looking for a clean, reasonably-priced hotel, this is a safe bet. It lacks some charm and luxury amenities, which would probably be out-of-place in a city like this anyway. Nevertheless, we found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, and the 2 rooms we got were very clean, with fresh linens, pillows and towels. The amenities are sparse, but again that shouldn't be a surprise. The breakfast buffet was weighted toward Asian food, but it appeared fresh and none of us got 'tong sia' after eating there! Our visit was in March, and just like everywhere, there were lots of mosquitos in the lobby, room, and breakfast area.
Provincial capitals like this can be very charming because of the opportunity to see local culture up close, and this hotel's proximity to the night market was a big plus. Not only was there an abundance of tasty food (including a stall to the west of the hotel, near the street corner, which sold the most delicious mixed-fruit and carrot (!) smoothie I've ever had), and some typical stalls selling clothes, hair clips, fruit, etc. It wasn't noisy or seedy in the slightest, and it was fun to amble around for a while.
We looked at prices on Agoda, but got a slightly better deal by asking about the price in person. The value was good, but not exceptional.
