Where to stay in Surin

There are a few good, budget-friendly options available in Surin, though not much by way of mid-range or luxury accommodations. There are a few guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, and hotels all within walking distance from one another. These accommodations, often family owned and run, have charming small town vibes. Chances are you'll be in Surin for the annual elephant season, but be sure to ask hotels for a discount if not.
