Tons of choices in both cities. In PP, I like staying near the riverfront area. I've always stayed at the Dara Reang Sey Hotel and find it affordable (about $10 per night) and friendly. Good restaurant downstairs, too. In SR I prefer the Peace of Angkor Villas. Very well run place.
You can find more info about accommodation choices at the Canby Publications website.

If you head to Baeng Kak lake in Phnom Penh then there are loads of guest houses next to each other starting from about $2 US a night. Most of them have terraced restaurants backing onto the lake and its a great place to chill and watch some beautiful sunsets. One or two of them also sell 'happy' pizzas and don't mind if you have a smoke!!!

I like Deadfish Guesthouse in SR, nearby the Central Market where the Gh's design is very unique and creative and it's by the road so accessible to anywhere in Siem Reap town. Cheap and lots of food/beverage there and a great variety to choose from.

As in PP, some would recommend nearby the Lake and some would recommend near the Old Market (Psar Tmei)...lots of cheap and worthy GH...don't worry. You'll find one.

For Siem Reap I'd recommend a Guest House called D&D Angkor Villa. Room rates are $US5-$10 night and they offer free transport, air conditioning (makes a big difference in the hot season)and a good little bar with pool table etc. They also have computers for your emailing and downloading your digital pics - which you'll need because you'll fill up your memory stick quit easily at Angkor Wat. Part of the D&D Angkor profit goes to support a language school and in March I had a fabulous time teaching Savong's School: a great experience that I'd recommend. The Guest House will take you out there.
