Karon Princess Hotel at Karon Beach
You can find a number of smaller mid price resorts along Karon Beach, as well as big resorts such as Hilton. Karon even has backpackers rooms. I'd say that the mid range hotels are all pretty decent, but the Karon Princess gets good reviews on TripAdvisor, and I just noticed that for the low season (May - October) you can stay for just 950 Baht per night! Check the late booking prices! High season rates are more like 4,000 Baht per night. This is not unusual - the low season is a great time to visit Phuket! But it rains all the time, I hear you cry... Not true. Weather is normally very nice - check my weather blog:

Karon Princess is on the beach road, close to the area called "Karon Center" where you have a good selection of restaurants and bars. Karon is pretty quiet, certainly when compared to Patong, which is about 7km north. In the low season, Karon is very quiet, despite the bargain hotel prices - I can't promise you'll have 3km of beach to yourself, but come in the off season and you can certainly avoid the crowds.
The resort has 86 rooms, some with seaview, some with "garden view", but in any case just a minute to the beach. The "deluxe" rooms are slightly larger and have internet access too. There is also 1 suite, low season rate about 2000 Baht per night. There's a pool and kids pool, a sunset restaurant and bar, and a spa too where they do massage, aromatherapy and body scrubs among other things. Karon Princess is a bargain right now and not a bad price even in peak season. On the beach, good location (I like Karon beach), all the facilities you need, easy to recommend!
