Millions of tourists visit Phuket every year, each coming from different financial backgrounds. There are plenty of budget Phuket hotels and no reason to worry about locating them.

The best place is the vicinity of Ranong road and Phang-nga road and you will get a good guesthouse with moderate facilities by paying just 500 baht for one night stay.
These cheap Phuket hotels are not much of show or grandeur, but you can very well use the hotel room for a few days of stay and complete your tour. However if your requirement is somewhere in between the guesthouse and the luxury hotels you could contact the hotel booking agents like Agoda and Hotel travel. They will get the best deal and offer you a number of choices based on your requirement and the budget. You should specially use the services of these agents if you are traveling with family or as newly wed couple for honeymoon.
There are plenty of hotels in the island starting from the ultra modern and costly star hotels and villas near the beaches to cheap hotels for the limited budget. You can find cheap hotels in the popular area of Patong, Kata and Karon, Patong with the lively beach nearby and the city life around is very popular and a lot of travelers like to stay there.
The high end hotels will cost more and are located around Nai Yang like the much acclaimed Indigo Pearl. Sri Panwa is a luxury resort used by celebrities. These are the best accommodation available and far from cheap.
