It was the second time I visited this friendly Inn. Expect to have all the basics.
Despite I arrived in the early morning, 2am, the staff managed to get us checked in and got me a free upgrade for the rest of my stay.
Great breakfast, which is included, They always made it fresh for the tenants.
It is busier than the last time I came by in Dec 2015. There are some constructions going on up north down the road and new hotels are on operations. As there is only one small road, like any other less developed areas without group tourists, that leads to the problem of noises: there are trucks, coaches and taxis run right in front of the Inn i.e. The balcony. Not only did it let us eat dust but also the noises of machines, shouting , etc. disrupted the area. Unfortunately, groups tourists of Korean and Russians have invaded in the area. Be prepared to lose the tranquility and peace.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for its friendly staff, free wifi and surperb breakfast. Just the area itself is not as quiet as it used to be and it will only go worse in the near future.
“Great Value, Great Location”
I found the Surin Bay Inn quite nice to stay at and a great value. I think of this as a B & B, not necessarily a full blown hotel, you actually check in at the bar and walk through the restaurant to get to the stairs leading to the room. There is free wi-fi and a computer station downstairs for guest use.
The rooms are spacious, clean and very functional. Some things show a little wear and tear but overall very acceptable. I eat out most of the time but the food I had at the restaurant (Thai/Western) was very good. I don't eat western food when I'm in Thailand, local food is way better, and the Thai dishes I had were great. The owner is very nice and social and the staff was awesome. I would definitely recommend to friends or family.
I will stay here again. Sure there is no gym or pool, but who cares. You are right on top of the beach, and a good one. I had friends staying at a much more expensive hotel down the road and I can honestly say the 3x cost was not worth it, in my humble opinion. I'll definitely book a room here next year when I go back.
“Good location n clean ”
Location n worth money
“very noise, construction in front hotel ”
big room, near beach, friendly staff
my stay at surin inn is not very pleasant. there is construction in front of the hotel and it is very noisy. the room is big but it is dusty. there is balcony but i don't feel like open the sliding door because the table and chair is dusty and very noise surrounding. my room should be deluxe sea view but you can't even view the sea since it is quite far from the hotel. you can only see the electric cable and empty field. You can order anything from their restaurant menu for breakfast because there is no breakfast buffet. I didn't order anything since it is non halal. I just bought cereal and instant noodles from the 24hr mini mart near the hotel.
“Worst value for money”
Lame hotel. Especially from the so called "Sea View" room...
YOU CAN'T SEE THE SEA
Do not go as per the image advertised.
From any hotel/ any room at this beach you can't see the Sea
No activities to be done
Swimming not allowed
“Friendly little Inn”
Location, friendly staff, fast Wifi
Stayed at the Surin Bay Inn many times. The location, the friendly staff is what makes this place. Food is also good and fast free Wifi!
“Good value hotel”
Room size was big, location to beach was excellent
The hotel and staff were really good nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Paid for a delux ocean view but there is no view as the trees have overgrown but it was still nice to have the balcony.
location, location, location
Not luxury but Surin hotels are expensive.. fairly good value for money
“Great for an overnight stay”
Food, Location, and Clean!
Stayed for a night in this hotel before transferring to Patong. It's a clean hotel located near the beach with very friendly staff. The bathroom is quite big and I love it! Good for a short stay and definitely worth your money. :)
“Nice hotel with good bar”
Rooms, bar, friendly staff
This hotel does what it says on the tin. The rooms were nice and clean, the food was perfectly fine and was a great place to have a few drinks with friends. Only issue is both front and back of the hotel has a construction site so quite noisy, but I think a lot of Surin is suffering with this issue. I would stay here again.
