Every tourist has its own expectations and requirements when it comes to in what type of Patong Accommodation they would like to spend their vacation. If you are looking for a place in Patong that has a spa for example as well as various facilities such as swimming pools and tennis courts then a Patong guesthouse should not be an option for you.
If you are however looking for a clean and spacious room with private bathroom, mini bar, air conditioning and satellite television then changes are that you will be more than happy staying at a Patong guesthouse. As a guesthouse in Patong has less staff to pay and less facilities to maintain, prices for a normal Patong guesthouse is generally considerably cheaper that what you would pay for a room at a Patong resort or hotel.
Prices of rooms at the various different Patong guesthouses do depend on a number of factors including the age of the Patong guesthouse in question, the size of the rooms, the location of the Patong guesthouse and the time of year in which you would need a Patong guesthouse room. A guesthouse which is located nearby to the beach of Patong will normally be more expensive then a Patong guesthouse which is located for example along Nanai road. An average price for a room at a Patong guesthouse during the tourist low season will cost you about 500 Thai Baht per night and during the tourist high season of Phuket you should expect to pay about 1000 Thai Baht per night at an average Patong guesthouse.

A Patong guesthouse is basically similar to a Patong hotel but a Patong guesthouse generally offers less facilities and amenities then a Patong resort or hotel would do. In return a tourist or travelers can expect to pay considerably less for a room at a Patong guesthouse then what they would pay for a room at a regular Patong hotel or resort. An average Patong guesthouse is also smaller in size although the average room sizes at a Patong guesthouse will be similar to what you would find at a hotel in Patong. Most Patong guesthouses have between 10 to 20 guest rooms. What you will generally not find at a guesthouse in Patong beach are facilities such as swimming pools, gym rooms and spa facilities.
