“Don't Stay this hotel not to be trusted”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

I stayed here for 7 days, mainly due to reading the reviews on this site, we arrived from Bangkok and after a 2 hour journey with 2 young children(3 and 6mths) was looking forward to some relaxation, the hotel itself is not clear on what it offers, anyone thinking of staying please ask at reception what is included in the price of rooms, for example we thought breakfast was free but at checkout the bill was listed with 240baht charge for everyday we had breakfast. You also have to buy a internet card at reception so wi-fi is not free of charge. I would also warn and families that the hotel reception has a medium sized flight of stairs that you would have to go up and with a pram is quite difficult. There is also no air-con in reception at all so is very hot. One last point which i have never come across before is we were charged 645baht check out fee! i think this needs to be looked at and i will be returning to ask why.

Great location, price, comfort. Just 100 m. to the beach. Comfortable spacious room and bed. Walk in price was under 1000 Tbt/ day for 5 day stay, including very satisfactory buffet breakfast. Moderate walking distance to Soi 6 or other direction to Walking Street.
Very limited English TV selection. BBC, Fox News, Bloomberg and Al Jazeera only.
Expensive WiFi access. 100Tbt for 70 minutes.
Pool on roof is good, but there is no shade.

Room Tip: Just show up. No need to book in advance.

I read the reviews here about the Flipper Lodge and so just rocked up without booking.

This was my first time to Thailand and wanted it to be a great experience, and so I didn't want to stay in a cheap dive. Although the Flipper Lodge was cheap, it certainly wasn't a dive. My room was a decent size, it had a tv, a/c, bar fridge and a big bathroom with toilet and a very large shower. The staff warned me that the room I selected (I had a choice of 2), might be a little noisey at night because it was facing the road (Soi 8), but it had an ocean view, so I took it. It WAS a bit noisey from about 11pm until 2am from all the bars and music from down below, but I quickly got used to it. I may take a quieter room next time...maybe. The room service meals were of a good quality and variety. And the prices were very cheap.

The staff were very polite and accomodating. The room was cleaned every day and to a very good standard. Better than some of the hotels I've stayed at here in Australia. A good buffet breakfast was served for around $4 Australian and had both a Thai and Western variety to choose from. The swimming pool on the roof had a great view of the ocean and you could see all the way up and down Pattaya beach. There is also a bar up at the pool that served a variety of alcohol. One minor complaint here is that the pool had too much chlorine, which made my eyes sting while under water.

The hotels location was perfect! It was right on Soi 8 and was only about 100m to the beach and also to a very large, modern, shopping complex which also contained a cinema. It was about a 15-20 min walk to the famous "Walking Street", but I could have easily travelled by taxi for about 30 cents. Most days I prefered to walk though, just for the exercise and also to browse all the shops and streets. I spent a lot of my days walking around the surrounding streets and felt completely safe.

I absolutely love this hotel and will definitely stay there next time I go.

Room Tip: Low season room prices were very good value.
