Patong Beach Lodge

Value & Location For Budget Travelers @ Patong Beach Lodge

Looking for a cheap night in Patong? Patong Beach Lodge may be the right choice for you.

Look, this place is a 64-room lodge. It’s often listed as a 2-star hotel, and while its many loyal customers would challenge that rating, Patong Beach Lodge clearly caters to the budget traveler. If you’re looking for a “resort,” then look elsewhere.

What Patong Beach Lodge lacks in extravagance and beauty, it makes up for in value. The lodge offers a superb location, clean, air-conditioned rooms, and a cheap place to rest your head after a long day exploring Patong’s shopping and entertainment attractions.

Room With(out) A View

Honeymooners, and those looking for all-inclusive resort experiences, would be better served by looking into Patong’s many beachfront resorts. At Patong Beach Lodge, you might not even get a room with a view… there are rooms here with no windows.

The pool is small and accompanying pool bar are small and clumsy. Few of the rooms have any kind of view. The rooms do not have safes. The hotel’s bathrooms are tiny. If you’re in need of a big mirror, you won’t find one here.

A Short Stroll To Shopping & Entertainment

That being said, the lodge is just a quick stroll away from Patong Beach, Jungceylon, and hundreds of market stalls and massage parlors. In the evening, you’re just a five-minute walk away from the food, drinks and nightlife of Bangala Road.

At the end of a long night, you’ll escape Patong’s crowds, and head down a small alley to the simple comfort of Patong Beach Lodge. For under 2,000 baht per night, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better low-budget deal in Patong.
