Love this hotel..only hotel right on the beach with some shade and a pool that won't break your bank....Close to all the nighlife, but far enough away to keep the madness of Patong Beach from your children.... A fantastic ownership family..

Add most of the reviews here and elsewhere suggested this was a nice place, we booked the hotel and looked forward to a lovely stay right on the beach. As we were visiting during the rainy season (e.g., everything was cheaper), we didn't have extremely high expectations. Sadly, even then we were still disappointed with the initial impression. The curtains...

Perfect if you want a quiet place and a short walk to Karon and Kata Beaches. It is a unique family run small Hotel and depending on your circumstances, (we are Seniors), expectations and budgeting, we found this Hotel ideal for us. It's tucked away at the end of a no thru road, no traffic to worry about, 6 Asian...

Good location, nice staff, you could hire sunbeds and sunshade umbrellas at the reception. Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and have nothing to complain about on the contrary. Large rooms and good service and very friendly staff. Every day they cleaned our room. Quite ok breakfast which offered most of what we wanted. The staff was quick to...

Stayed at this hotel for 4 days in March. It is in a great location, right on the beach but at the far northern end away from the noise & crowds. Plenty of eating places within 10 mins walk. The staff were very helpful, tokens clean and comfortable. Our room was 3 steps from the pool but there were others...

We spent a week here, and we're so happy we had chosen this place. We were apprehensive as we drove in from the airport. We wanted a relaxing beach experience,but all we saw were miles of ugly buildings and hectic traffic. However, when we pulled up to the hotel we were happy. It is right on the beach, which is...

We had a nice relaxing 3 night stay here. It's a quaint hotel with a nice staff. It is located on the quiet end of Karin beach with a great view of the beach depending on your room. The hotel proprietor was responsive to our needs. They provide a decent breakfast with a great variety.

We stayed 7 nights at In On the Beach. Our favourite part - the location. Far enough away from the crowded parts, but still close enough to grab dinner in town. The hotel itself was great. Clean, spacious rooms with fantastic views of the ocean (partially obstructed during our time due to construction for the Asian Beach Games - not...

This is a hidden gem. Clean and comfortable. Spotless pool. The only hotel in Karon located on the beach (no busy road to cross) and on the lake. Rooms have 240V plugs taking American appliances (good for cell charging and dual voltage hair dryer). Mini-fridge and kettle included. Free wi-fi.
