Previously gay-owned and gay-managed Tropical Inn Phuket ( 2013 – now under new non-gay ownership) is located in a quieter part of Patong about a 15-minute walk from the beach or Paradise Complex. This hotel offers 12 air-conditioned, en-suite rooms, some with balconies. There is a coffee shop on the ground floor, free WiFi and a shuttle service to the beach.
“The original gay owner and his partner have sold this place to some Russian people who are letting it slide into oblivion.
I stayed there two weeks ago, so know what is happening.
There is no coffee shop, no breakfast available, no live-in management, no service on a Wednesday, safes in rooms do not work, no free transfers to town or beach, the sign on the main street is in Russian, and the taxi drivers can't find the place.
In short there is now NOTHING GAY about this place. I feel so sorry for Lindsay and Nong, the original gay owners, we met at their new coffee shop in Chiang Mai, and gave him a report.“

“Just arrived home in Canada andI miss the place already.
This is true a haven in Phuket. Every night I went out to the club scene and had a great time but I knew I had a safe place to call home when I was done.
One night I got so drunk I rang (3AM) the Boss Lindsey hoping he could send me a car because. I told him where I was and at what bar that I would wait out the front. Ten mins later he turns up on his bike to take me back to the Hotel.
When we got back I tried to pay he refused saying "It's all part of the program" well I gave him a quick kiss ( 2 - 3 mins) went to bed alone :(
I have stayed in many "GAY FRIENDLY" hotels before but this one beats them all for service, caring, extras :)
If you ever visit Patong / Phuket stay there its the best you will find but book in advance his place was full when I was there 1 week ago its low season
But with the care you get, the quality of the rooms I am not surprised at all.

“I also just left this wonderful place for dirty Bangkok. At P.T.I they really do care. I had a problem that Lindsay helped me sort out very quickly without question THANKYOU SO MUCH. Service that is really OUTSTANDING for the price range, the rooms are huge - the cleanest I have ever stayed.
I slept like a log every night. When I went down stairs only SMILES from all the staff. That's what you need when you just wake up it starts your day great. Thank you Phuket Tropical Inn I will "come again".

“Stayed at Phuket Tropical Inn for 2 weeks in early May. I have to say the Owner/Manager really looks after his gay guests. :) He greeted me in a short pair of shorts when I arrived at 11pm & no shirt.
WOW, I could have taken him home with me he has the best looking package I have ever seen.
Book here for a great sleep & a great service, this place really rocks!“
