    I was at Muang Surin the other week, talking to the owner of The Beach bar and he said "Where are you staying"?
    We said "Thong Tarin".
    He said "Oh no! that place is terrible!"

    and it was.

    We mainly went there because of the area and we wanted the pool for the kids.
    Well the pool was full of rubish including 2 floating cigarette butts.
    The pool area smelt and looked like a loading dock.
    The room, whilst restoration attempts has been done, was old and tired.

    He did recommend another place that was owned by the same company as the Majestic but half the price. He said they will drive you over to the Majestic to use the pool.
    The problem was this was at 2am after quite a few beers so I have forgotten the name of the place.

    So where does everyone recommend to stay when in Suring City?

    I did notice the Majestic has some crackin promotions at the moment http://www.surinmajestic.com/promotion

    On the odd occasion that I have attended a Surin Farang get - together (what happened to them?), and wanting to be in the bar area for thr evening, I have stayed at the Majestic Twin. This is probably the place that was mentioned to you. A couple of hundred metres from Soi Kola. Clean and comfortable with coffee and Kao Tom provided for breakfast. Just 500baht double or twin room.

    There are many better places in Surin, some very reasonably priced, but rather depends what area you want to be in.

    Booking a room there does not appear to be that great!

    Booking.com and Agoda have it on their lists, but are unable to make any bookings.

    Booking hotel rooms on the phone has in the past caused problems. You arrive, they have no note of your booking, or have booked the wrong day. I prefer to have a print out of the booking from an accredited agent.

    I like the Martina Hotel. Very quiet. Not expensive. Comfortable beds. Not in town so you need a car.

    Similarly the Kasem Garden (on the ring road) is acceptable too.

    It all depends where you want to be in Surin. I personally like to dump the car and be able to walk to wherever I am going to eat/drink or shop etc

    I like the Martina hotel too. Quite, large rooms, good restaurant.

    It is just outside the city centre, so you need transportation, but staff is always happy to help (if needed ofcourse).

    Martina hotel is a motel-like hotel. Rooms a bit bungalow-style. So no noisy corridors or climbing stairs. As mentioned: very quite!! Recommended!

    I have always used Agoda for years nd found them excellent. And I a receipt. I made a wrong booking in Bangkok about 5 years ago and the hotel would not give me my money back. Agoda reimbursed me. They did not have to but they did.

    Sometimes you can’t book on Agoda that’s what I am talking about.
    Not when you can use Agoda .
