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.
