My long stay (23 days) was pleasant and memorable
Friendly staff, great beach view and nice Thai people nearby
I spent nearly 23 days in Karon. This budget hotel could pass for a luxury hotel in our country. I got a lot more than I expected. I was only expecting something basic but it was all great:
1. High speed internet (4 MBPS to 8 MBPS on rooms)
2. Friendly staff
3. Safe (there are security cameras everywhere)
4. Very near the beach. Don't miss the sunset! Try Daeng Restaurant nearby.
5. Easy to walk barefoot in Karon beach (but be vigilant of course). You'll reach a point where you'd see a lot of restaurants and that's already near Karon town.
6. Very good owner (he was the taxi driver for some time and he was the one driving when I needed to get to the airport).
7. Motorbikes are available for those who don't want to walk or take a taxi
I just want to add how much I appreciate the Thai people. I had a pleasant stay because of them.
Some foreigners can be noisy but just bring your earplugs. From my experience, it's just those from China who are so noisy. Europeans were OK.

Relaxed, great views, but a bit run down
Large rooms, breakfast included
The hotel is too far out of town to be able to walk home safely (options are dangerous road, or dark beach). This leaves a scooter option, but the driveway is very steep going down. I think that the hotel was very good value for money, and that the staff are doing the best that they can, but it is obviously the the owners have let the property go: it is decrepit and a bit sad. On the positives, very close to Karon Beach (you can walk down from the hotel) and has lovely views to see through trees.

Incredible value for money
Good price, good bed, great view
This hotel is well away from the centre of nightlife, located on a cliff between Patong and Karon. The view from the balcony is fantastic, as the hotel is situated high above Karon Beach. However, this means that it's quite a way down to the beach itself. The breakfast included in the price was very good. The girls that work in the hotel are very helpful.

Good for backpacker but not for business traveller
proximity to the beach, nice ocean view, hillside
It was not that okay because first of all the map that was provided during booking was confusing & the hotel turns out to be at the wrong side of the map. Couldn't contact the hotel for direction only to find out that their phone's not working for a week on that time. Most of the food that ordered were out of stock. You have to pay a deposit fee for the key . No staff to help with your luggage and the stairs going down to the bungalows are steep and uneven.

Fun, economical, relaxing
ocean view, veranda, quiet
We loved our stay at Karon Cliff. Our family spent many hours on the veranda/outdoor restaurant eating, playing cards,etc while viewing a most spectacular view of the ocean. The breakfast was included and quite adequate. The price in off-season cannot be beat. The staff were kind and helpful with good English skills. The only sad part for us was that when our key fell off the key card, we were told that replacing only the metal key was a negligible expense. However, when the manager arrived, he unfairly gouged us for 2,000 baht (about 64 USD) to get a duplicate key made (they had another original key with them). He seems opportunistic and very unaware of customer service.

The place was good for this price- staff terrible
The place was nice located on the cliff, very close to the beach with a nice view. The room standard was really ok for that price. If you are scared of the bugs and lizards, definitely is not the correct place for you. Unfortunately the staff spoiled everything. Not friendly,giving you a feeling that you are just a machine which providing for them money. Especially driver is giving u a high prices for transportation.
