I confess that I have no leads allowing me to recommend any budget hotels in the Rayong Town area, but perhaps I can suggest some websites that offer you the most hotel options to check over.
Website Sawadee.com can be quite helpful, and it does give some idea on pricing. Note that not all of the hotels are strictly in Rayong Town — Koh Samet is included. Sawadee seems to have two separate lists of these hotels, but I don’t want to try and cross-match them to see if the content in one is different from the other. Thus, go here and here for the two website locations.
For sheer quantity of hotels, have a look at HotelsCombined — it claims to list 77 Rayong Hotels. The link is to HotelsCombined.com, but I would expect that the same collection can be found at HotelsCombined.co.uk.
Agoda (Agoda.com) came in as the second most abundant listing, claiming to have 60 in their Rayong collection. However, it is required to submit actual planned travel dates in order to see the full list, so I don’t know if you wish to take the bother — it’s of course up to you.
The third largest collection I was able to locate were the 51 Rayong Hotels at DirectRooms (DirectRooms.com).
No doubt, there are cut-rate places one could stay that are not included in these collections — places that might be little more than rooming houses. I have no information on anything like these. I would certainly welcome anyone’s suggestions or recommendations.
Anyway, as an August 21, 2012, edit to this post, here are a few further references that may or may not be of any benefit:
