We stayed at the K-Hotel in Patong which was about 800baht a night about two momnths ago. Check out directrooms.com. I have booked all my accomodation in asia through them and the rooms are great value. The K-Hotel is right in Patong 2 minutes from the beach. It is set in a garden and has a good pool. Karen Beach is about 3 kilometres from Patong and there is a big hill between the two beaches so no i wouldnt advise walking between the two especially because of the heat.
So check out directrooms.com beacuse they have other hotels in Patong to choose from also.

Hi there,
Patong is not particularly quiet!
You could stay at the northern end of town (opposite to Karon end), which keeps you about 5 or 10 mins walk away from the beach and shops.
I can't recommend a specific hotel there, except the Novotel, which is great but not the cheapest.

Don't walk from Karon - you'd be mad.
