The Flipper Lodge is an older hotel that has been refurbished quite recently, located on Soi 8 is right in the heart of one of the biggest beer bar enclaves of Pattaya and just 60m from the beach so it’s not exactly for the quiet traveller but those who want all the action right up your front door. I recommed staying in the backside in wing B, it does help mute down all from all those beer bars and has recently been renovated, only downside is there’s no balcony or view from them. Rooms are basic but quite decent with all the required commodoties, king size bed was a little hard but still sleep well, bathroom is a little small, and very powerful Air-Con. The Flipper Lodge amenities include a rooftop pool area with bar which offers good views across Pattaya and it’s bay, plenty of lounge chairs to relax in, food served there is also quite good, proper sun trap. Staff are friendly and always, you can bring back different joiners over the course of the evening, as long as you keep it to one at a time there’s no extra fees. Have a look below for the pictures I have personally took during my stay of the room and hotel amenities.
