near shops and restaurants, somewhat convenient to beach, large room
Note: I have stayed at probably 50 hotels booked through Agoda and reviewed most of them. I rarely post anything this negative.
What you get a hotel is relative to the price you pay. I live in Thailand and have stayed in many dozens of hotels over the years. I know the market and know when a hotel is a particularly good deal or bad.
I booked this "hotel" based on its full price of ~$100 and a discount to around ~$50 ($67 including taxes). I expected something I expected something FAR NICER than a low quality Thai apartment. The listed full price (which I did not pay, but is supposed to be a reference point) is egregiously misleading--no one would ever pay that price, not even at New Years. This means my "discounted" price is also completely misleading.
The "Kamala Sea View" does not have a sea view and is not on the beach; you have to cut through a row of shops and it's not as convenient as the map indicates, although only a 5 minute walk. Once actually in Kamala I saw other hotels of the same price or less with better
The room is large but very basic. The air conditioning didn't work right one night, there was no soap at the bathroom sink, the bed was poor quality, and the walls and balcony door do not keep the road noise out from outside. All night I heard motorcycles and drunk people going by.
Given the inflated prices in Phuket these days, this place is worth THB 1000, not the 2x this I paid.

“good value for money ”
central location, large comfortable rooms, easy access to everything
My wife and I spent 5 days around xmas. We liked the place a lot. The owner has to be mentioned seperately: outstandingly helpful and friendly young lady, very good english skills! It's more an apartments place than a hotel - no restaurant, no staff around, kitchen area inside your room and a provided cellphone to call the owner for any need. Rooms are cleaned every day, 7eleven is right next door, 250m walk to the beach - there are some very cheap real deal local restaurants on the main road. We will go there again!

“A little beauty!”
Close to the beach, large clean room and quiet
1 minute walk to the beach, quiet at night but still a few bars and restaurants around. It's not party central like Patong so it's nice for a few days break and the beach is pretty decent. The manager (or daughter of manager) was super friendly and even attempted to arrange our onward journey.

“Comfortable-no frills hotel close to the beach”
Location, Facility and Price
Rooms/Toilets were cleaned and towels replaced daily. Indeed you have to give the recept a call when u arrive. During checkin, we were given a mobile phone we could use (to contact the land lady).
Kitchenette with microwave, toaster, kettle and large fridge was certainly helpful.
Hotel was 3min away from the beach - super!
Wifii worked well during our stay.
We have no complains!

“Great value for money”
large rooms, close to beach, good air conditioning
this is a little gem of a boutique hotel all 6 studio apts on the second floor with a lovely large balcony overlooking small street that parallels the beach only a 3 minute walk to the beach. Many shops, restaurants, bars and massage shops at your fingertips. 7-11 shop downstairs plus ATMS -!: money exchangers all right there. Kamala is much quieter so if you want to be away from the craziness of Patong this is it! Patong is a 350 baht taxi ride one way.

“God and near the beach.”
Big room. clean.
When you come there, maybe you must call the lady, because she is there only little time every day.
Its in the middle of Kamala, and near beach.
Sevev eleven next door. Perfect. The stuff are frendly and the man downstairs outside can fix taxi, and all you want.
Its good value for the money.

Proximity to amenities, friendly and helpful staff, spacious room
the room was spacious and wonderful to stay in. it came with a small kitchenettes and the balcony was a great place to chill out at night. from the balcony, you can watch the actions on the street which is not too crowded or noisy usually. when you need some peace, you can just close up the balcony door and indulge in the space and privacy in the room. basically, this hotel is more suited for couples or families but nevertheless, my stay at kamala sea view hotel was indeed an enjoyable experience. there was a 7-11 next door and the money changer or atm were easily within reach. though located very close to the beach, the only setback that i can think of is the fact that i did not have a sea view from my room....otherwise, my stay would be even more marvelous.

“Clean, spacious n convenient hotel”
Have 7-11, money changer, saloon just next door. Tuk tuk station right infront of the hotel or taxi just less than 20 steps away.. The best beach ( recommended by the local)
Have some strange sound on the ceiling at the middle of the night. Might be some mice on top the roof or ceiling.
Kettle pot not clean in the room I stay so can't boil water.
Other than these, all are Ok.
