My trip expenses are often like Captain Slash's: 'spend little and see a lot', however, in Ranong I stayed at place provides excellent value and will likely appeal to everyone.
The _Le Ranong_ Hotel is new and has been open only a few months. All 24 rooms feature HW, A/C, TV w/ cable, and a large refrigerator (beers 35-40Bt, water free), and are 'non-smoking' but w/ small balconies for smokers. Each room has little amenities usually found in hotels that are far more expensive: HW maker w/ free coffee & Milo, shampoo & soap despensers in the shower, pillows that are soft (not hard as a rock) and quality (not pressed wood) furniture.
Security is excellent for parking cars/bikes, plus keycard entry to the rooms.
Best of all (for me) was the owner is an avid baker and has a restaurant that specializes in desserts/pasteries and the best bread I've had anywhere in Asia! There is a large and excellent Thai restaurant 50-meters away (meals 30-40 Bt), as well as a 7/11 next door to the hotel.
Rooms: 590-Bt single, 690-double bed
Owner: Khun Nok, speaks excellent English
