Baan Saikhao Plaza is a nondescript building on the inland side of the main road in the centre of White Sand beach.  On the ground floor is a 7-eleven and a very good Indian restaurant. adjacent to the restaurant is the entrance to the hotel.

Rooms are on three floors but note that there isn’t an elevator.  The hotel is much larger than it appears from the roadside.  As rooms are built around a central atrium.  There are two types of room, Superior and Deluxe. 

The main difference being the Deluxe rooms are 36Sqm and Superior 28sqm.  Both are available with a double or twin bed.  (If you require an extra bed, Baan Saikhao Plaza charge a very reasonable 300 Baht/night for this.  This is much less than most hotels.)

The rooms themselves are very tastefully designed and feature a glass walled bathroom.  Beds are a bit firmer than most guests would like.  But, this is a budget hotel, so you can’t expect everything to be a 4 star standard.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and, despite being located roadside in a busy area, also quiet.  Many guests expect noise in the room due to the location and so are pleasantly surprised when they can get a good night’s sleep. 

Breakfast isn’t included and the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant.  But there are a multitude of places to eat nearby, either on the beach or roadside. 

Two main downsides.  No views.  No swimming pool.  However, if you can live without that, the the rooms themselves are better (and larger) than at many resorts which cost double the price. 

The location won’t be to everyone’s liking.  But if you’re here to sunbathe, eat, drink and socialise then it’s a very convenient place to base yourself in the heart of White Sand beach.

In over all of staying, I will rate 8 out 10 this property. 😀 - The location of this property is very comfy from the seaport and I strongly recommend especially if you like to hangout and party. There are tons of affordable local restaurants and clubs a few steps away from the hotel. The beach is just like 2 mins walk away. 😞 - There was nobody in the lobby when we arrived to check in and a little bit weird because the 2 ladies were pushing each other to talk to their English-speaking guests. It would be more brilliant and helpful if there's somebody stayed 24/7 in the lobby to accommodate their upcoming guests and also for those who want to check out early.
Great location, good spacious rooms, budget friendly. 😀 - No breakfast at the apartments but restaurants close by so no problem. The location is a short walk across the road some 100 metres or so. The apartments are budget apartments but are spacious and comfortable, rooms made up daily with fresh towels supplied. 😞 - Nothing i didn't like. No elevator to upper floors so may not suit people who struggle with stairs.
Good location but could be cleaner 😀 - Good location, just above 7eleven, close to everything you need, everyday room cleaning and new toileteries. Nice design, wooden floor and furnitures. 😞 - View from window on ugly building next to the hotel, very loud AC, floor and kitchen worktop were not cleaned properly, dirty bed linen, hard bed, no lift.

Wonderful stay 😀 - I liked everything. The room was big. Very clean. It's very near to the white sand beach. So many restaurants nearby. 7/11 is right behind the hotel. Overall the stay was amazing.
😞 - Nothing
Great 😀 - Location is on the main street opposed to the White sand beach, and near the night walking street. Very peaceful in night so we could sleep well. The room is clean and well equipped.
