I have surveyed the area before I booked this hotel in person, since pretty much this is the only choice (hotel) walking distance to the pier. I had to catch a very early ferry to Don Sak so I wanted to get as much sleep as possible. I paid 800 bath without breakfast (1000 baht if you want breakfast).
Initially they gave me a horrible room (bad smell, peeling paint, mold on the shower curtain). I have asked for another room and (behold!) the next room was pretty good compared to the previous one. What I mean is that it was clean, no smell or mold. I think the bed was comfortable and I was able to sleep just fine.
Overall if you get a decent room the price is very reasonable, but I would not stay this side of the island unless you are on a tight budget.
The pier is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel and there is a 7-eleven midway towards the pier so you can stock up water snacks etc.
The previous reviewer mentioned the lack of english at the reception which is true if you show up at midnight or arrive very early, but during the day I thought both receptionists spoke decent English.
Bring your bug spray this is very I least expected to get bit but since they leave all doors open in the lobby I got bit several times before I realized.
