If you judge the hotels by the number of stars, Eastiny Inn is a perfect place to change your attitude. Having just 3 stars, this inn has very low prices (as low as $20 for a Deluxe suite!), and at the same time it offers you very spacious, comfortable and well-equipped rooms. The building is painted in yellow and looks very happy and hospitable. It’s rather high, 7 or 8 floors, and the upper balconies offer a great sea view. The hotel is situated near the sea, it takes not more than 5 minutes to reach the beach.
Of course, the staff is not flawlessly trained and educated, but you can expect a friendly and attentive attitude to you. They keep the rooms clean, help you with the questions and do not waste your time during check-in and check-out procedures. The hotel may look a bit old and shabby, but it doesn’t affect the comfort. One of the best feature of this place is a very democratic atmosphere; if you prefer luxury and exclusiveness, it’s probably not the best place to stay. Otherwise, you’ll find many friendly and talkative tourists, average age is below 35 years old. The hotel is close to the nightlife center of Pattaya, which means that it’s a bit noisy, particularly at night. Unfortunately, Eastiny Inn doesn’t provide according soundproofing in its suites.
As I have discovered (expectedly), Eastiny Inn is one of the cheapest hotels to stay in Pattaya, and its location is perfect: close to the beach and not far from the nightlife stream. It’s highly recommended for lone travelers, groups of young people, and those who have come for partying or sex tourism. Guest-friendly policies allow having visitors at any time, without any extra payments. This looks like a perfect place for guys like me; a plenty of hot local girls around, almost as many attractive young tourists, and no excessive control or attention from the side of security staff.
