I travelled over 7,200 miles to go from Hilo International Airport to Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand! I went there to visit my friend who was there already on vacation in Thailand for a few weeks. I found this place on short notice and with the available 2-room suite. (Thanks to booking.com!) The rate was 1,100 baht/nt which was around US$35/nt when I was there. It was definitely worth the money, although there were plenty of other places around in the immediate area which appeared nicer on the outside for about the same rate. It was located adjacent to the Novotel and at the very northern end of Patong Beach.
