The main difference between a average guesthouse in Phuket and an average Phuket hotel is that a Phuket guesthouse normally does not offer such facilities such as a swimming pool and a restaurant. However please note that many Phuket guesthouses offer excellent clean and well appointed rooms which include facilities such as satellite television, private bathroom including shower or bath and other facilities including for example a mini bar.
There is even such a thing as a boutique Phuket guesthouse which offers very high level quality accommodation but the great aspect about Phuket guesthouses is that they room rates are normally much lower then what tourists would pay at most of the Phuket hotels due to a lack of certain facilities such as a swimming pool.
I have known many wealthy travelers who have opted for staying at a Phuket guesthouse as they spend all day on the beach, do not use a hotel swimming pool and therefore are more then happy with staying at a guesthouse in Phuket.
You will find plenty of Phuket guesthouses in all the various Phuket beaches resort areas. The further away from the beach the Phuket guesthouse is located then the lower the room rate will be. Nearly all the Phuket guesthouses are Phuket girl friendly and these Phuket hotels do not charge a joiners fee.
The Phuket guide has listed some of my favorite Phuket guesthouses. If you would like to stay at a clean and comfortable Phuket lodging establishment but do not want to pay top dollar then do consider staying at a Phuket guesthouse.
