PS--this website by krabi.sawadee.com might help. It's not a comprehensive list of places but does show quite a number of accommodations:

Thanks, seagypsy. I certainly don't mind the volume of your input! I already had the krabi site bookmarked. I guess I can find a fair number of listings...it's just finding reliable reviews and picking a place that is the challenge.

Many of the lower cost places don't appear to take online reservations...but it seems as if Dec25-Jan 1 is not that time to show up and expect vacancies, even if you're looking for backpacker accommodations. Do you agree?

Yes, this is peak peak season so many of the most in-demand places fill up quickly. I was quite surprised that even those flights to Krabi with BA were still available.

Anyways, I think you should expand your options of getting more help and answers by checking out tripadvisor's Krabi hotel reviews and forums since there are several members there that are far more versed on Krabi then myself. This is a little awkward but I figure the purpose of travel forums is to help travelers.

Given your budget, you may find Thorntree to be a useful site for you. Most of us on this site have little experience with places in your price range.

(seagypsy, we all recommend other travel sites as appropriate. I've never seen the editors delete a post referring someone to a useful site, they only delete advertising)

Thanks Kathie. I wasn't quite sure about protocol on other forum referrals.

cjw--and as Kathie suggested, tripadvisor and the thorntree might also be useful/helpful.
