This wasn't a particularly terrible hotel, but with so much choice, I would recommend staying elsewhere for much better value (we did so after a liveaboard to the Similan Islands and regretted staying here for the first night). Location was far from the main area of town but rooms were clean although air conditioning didn't work.
The main issue was the staff. No one spoke English which I can handle but they were never around. Whenever we wanted to ask a question or have an issue, no one was on the desk.

superior room has no windows”
One of the 3 pictures on Agoda shows a window but, watch out, it's the window in the aisle! This is kind of tricky and pretty unfair, on a mobile pictures are quite small, you know
I upgraded to a Deluxe room for 100 baht more for each day I stayed.
Generally speaking the place is not worth the money, a no no hotel with definitely better options for the same money in bang niang.,
If interested more details below:
1)The hotel has large boards with the former name "SS emerald suite" - The name Bavaria Inn is to see only once from the street on a very faded board, easy to oversee..
2) Bathroom with only window shutters and no window frames with glass, never seen something like that in Thailand!
It means it' s either dark and light must be turned on or the neighbours are seeing you when on the toilet..
It also means bathroom door closed all the time unless you want your room full of mosquitoes...
3) We' re staying in the bathroom: the tap was loose and detached from the sink. Never fully closed, always dripping and, funny enough, that loss of water resulted in a pretty strong whistle. Man, you have a train in your bathroom! One more reason to keep the door closed!
4) Air Con was very noisy and not very efficient, it was always blocked at full power, no way to change it with the remote control. It's clearly an old machine that needs to be replaced or at least serviced.
5) Wi-Fi not working for 2 days. Even if I mentioned it immediately to the lady in the reception, she first denied that saying that her mobile was connected and working, the next day said the problem will be sorted out soon.
Two days later I went to the Bavaria House, a restaurant close to the hotel having a similar name and complained about that. The owner of both places is a friendly german man, he said the problem has been solved on the same day and in fact it was working. Still 2 days out of 4 without Wi-Fi
6) sat tv with few foreign channels and pretty fuzzy, can't see the b

Still good value for money but...”
I spent a month at Emerald, now Bavaria Inn, two years ago and I was impressed. After two years I can say that the standard definitely went down although it is still a good location and relatively good value for money. But two years ago I paid the same price. Things they do not have any more and I missed this time: no breakfast, no tea/coffee facilities in the room, no hairdryer to borrow, DeLux room is not a very delux any more. But it is very clean, quiet and located in a very good place so despite my critical remarks it is ok to book. I hope they will renovate the place a bit before I book next time :)

The room was spacious and clean with comfortable beds. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Big balcony with nice view. The only downside was no breakfast.

Quiet location + spacious rooms but quite far from beach (15-20 min slow walk)”
Staff is quite accomodative; big car parking space; very quiet location though very close to main rest/bar life. The only thing I would recommend to this guesthouse - arrange leg washing at entry and put fan in room (complementary to aircon) :-)

Friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms”
Friendly and helpful staff; Clean and comfortable; Position: near sea/beaches, restaurant and bars, but in a quiet area.
Great stay. We just wanted to have some days of total relax in the southern part of Thailand, possibly not in crowded place and here we found what we wanted! Not too many people, and in the near island of Ko Koh Khao we had a beach almost for us! The Hotel is clean and confortable, and owners and workers are friendly and really helpful!

Excellent value for money”
Cleanliness, not expensive, quiet
We selected rooms with balcony in order to have windows.
Was by far cheaper than surroundings hotels.
Air conditioned, hot water, large room.
One point of attention: taking a shower floods the bathroom.
