Next to Pal Beach (quite expensive, and definitely not worth it) as Taverna Sunset, run by Yorgos, a retired postman and a delightful chap. He has five rooms, each with private bathroom and fridge, maybe with a hotplate as well. This is on the more quiet stretch of the road, towards the castle: the only significant noise can be the garage at the back, run by his son.
Neapolis is in the same building as the post office, next to the junior school. This is another good place to stay, with smaller rooms downstairs and two bedroom apartments upstairs. My recommendation is to get a room away from the school if you like a lie-in.
Immediately after this (going away from the centre) is Poseidon. We have never stayed there, but have had drinks and so on, and generally heard good reports.
Finally, the next place is Zygos, run by Vangelis and Fifi. They do the best special ice coffee, with big dollops of delish ice cream, in town. Rooms are at the back, mainly in a newish complex, in a very nice garden.
Both Posidon and Zygos tend to be filled up by the likes of Kosmar, but have the occasional vacancy. There are a few other places, including the Elman Hotel (bit more expensive, and may even have a pool), but these are the places that we are most familiar with.
Unless you're going in the height of the season (late July to early September) then I wouldn't book - turn up, see what goes, and strike a deal that everybody can be happy with.

They did well "grosso modo", thank you.
Yes I noticed too late that what Sheila really wanted was personal advise.
I must have had a black out.
