It is always difficult to find right accommodation at right price especially during peak season or weekend for that matter in Gokarna.
For example, The place I stayed on day 1 showed up thrice the price next day due to weekend.
If you need a space that offers Air conditioning along with clean and comfy bed, Here is my recommendation for you.
Kamat Lodge (near bus stand)
During weekend, when it was completely packed in Gokarna, I decided to knock door of Kamat lodge located at 100 mtr.
Guess what? The place was super clean with air conditioner working and a TV for just Rs 1450/night (2 guests).
We were on a budget trip so we kind of asked for Non-AC room, and we got an option for Non-AC room at a price of Rs 850ight.
If you still find these prices high, Here is what we were offered at beach cafe.
Stay in a tent with no mattress for Rs 1600/night or get a room with no AC at a price of Rs 2200/night.
We acted smart and booked Kamat lodge and spent rest of the evening at a beach cafe and came to our stay during the time of sleep.
