No Joiner Fee for these Pattaya Hotels
What the heck is a "joiner fee"?
Answer: Many hotels in Pattaya adopt the joiner fee policy. A joiner fee is a sum of money (from 300 baht up to 1000 baht and possibly more) that must be paid to the hotel when you invite an extra person to stay in your room or "join" you in your hotel room.
The hotels listed on this website did not require a joiner fee when we stayed at them or contacted them. Some hotels like the Dusit will take a double booking from you (for two people) then when you arrive they will require the name of the second guest.
Just because you reserve the room for two people does not mean you will not be charged a joiner's fee when you wish to bring a companion to your room. On the following pages are the hotels we contacted, and where applicable, the hotel policy on booking a double.
We call them guest friendly hotels because they allow you to have a guest without having to pay the extra joiner fee.

The room rates shown below are internet booking rates. For a "walk in" the rate will be higher by around 30% to 60%. Meaning that if you just walk in off the street to book a room in the hotel the rate will be much higher.
When you check the room rates on this website you will notice that some hotels list the single and double (2 people) rate at the same amount. When this is the case reserve your room for two people (double room). This allows the staff of the guest friendly hotel a "saving face" window when you check in with your companion of the evening.
