As I,ve stated earlier in this thread  friend of mine rents a room for 6 months each year at the RCon Blue Ocean he is given the choice of room only (he pays separately for water/electric) or all-inclusive.

Daily/weekly rates I do not know about :jap:

I have had hotels tell me any booking over 30 days, you pay for electric after 30 days. These were smaller places not large chains.

I have stayed in a couple of short time hotels recently.

I inquired and was told long term stays were ok.

Probably not what you are looking for though.

Spent many a good time with a friend visiting the short time hotel 
The Full Love Inn here in Pattaya, they're great value, service is spot on, you can order beer, all the essentials are for sale.

i have visited 3 hotels this evening in the Soi Bukkhao area and 2 were closed.

(D hotel and Nature view hotel)

 

The Opey de Place Soi Lengkee is open, rooms are 650 bahts\night but they have

only a handfull of rooms available (They probably don't have enough staff to manage all the rooms)

 

The best option is to use an internet site like Agoda (595 in the Opey actualy for one night saturday 30 to sunday 31 may, that was the OP request for his friend from Bangkok) then phone call to the hotel before coming to confirm the reservation.

I booked a room (cancelable) at the LK Metropole through Agoda a few weeks ago so i thought i'd call the hotel and check if they are in fact open. A lady answered my call and when asked if the hotel was open she replied "NO", i then said well i've booked a room through Agoda and she replied "if you book a room through a booking agency then YES we are open"

 

The mind boggles lol

lol

it's probably because all the rooms are not available, only a small % of the hotel rooms are open

(Because they don't have enough customers so they don't have all the staff at work)

but a limited number of rooms are available, and they are rented on the internet sites.

Maybe this could explain the ''Thai style'' answer at your phone call

If you want to be sure you will have your room when you arrive at the LK metropole on soi Diana

i can verify for you on the ground in the next days if they are open for the internet

reservations already made, just send me a private message here

A follow up on that 7 week old story would be useful, particularly the bit about

" untill further notice"

No update, nothing has changed mate, the order still stands. 
The only accommodation in Pattaya are the illegal daily/weekly AirBNB rentals, dodgy agents and guesthouses. 
Also around 1% of hotels are open, it appears these noncompliant 1% don't have to obey the strict closure rules, they are apparently owned by those who are connected.

I have never heard of any hotel in Thailand charging for water and power over and above the room charge, except maybe guesthouses for monthly stays.

Yes, I agree.

Guesthouse or similar.

Some open some closed, up to them, phone and confirm with the one you want to book with

Fake news/comment, its not “Up To Them”, these hotels were ordered to close.

 

There may be a hand full of Hotels open (most illegally).

The forced closure have shut them.

Members are getting confused, guesthouses etc are not hotels.

As I said earlier,

Any House building in Thailand can call themselves a hotel when in fact they may be an apartment, guesthouse etc.

 

Trip adviser doesn't even have a clear definition between Hotels and Guesthouses so I would think the average TV member would not know the difference.

I frequently used hot-sheet motels for a few days lodging while I was working in northeast Brazil. A lot of them had simply awesome room-service menus as well, better than some 5-star hotels.

But have you seen a hotel? Each room would have to be metered.
