That's a difficult question Jessica. What kinds of things are you interested in seeing? Mammals? Birds? Insects?
Would you be going for a day trip or staying longer?

Which park is not? Haha.
I love the month May.
Personally I believe it is one of the best times of year with the transition from hot dry summer to the wet season.
It's a good time for reptiles, birding is still good in May (quite a few birds nesting, some hornbills are still on the nest in May), and mammals are always around and personally I have been particularly lucky around that time of year even with the wild cat species (don't expect to see any, haha!!!).
The parks are generally quiet, few locals and also few foreign visitors.
So I would say all the parks that are known to host a wide range of animals should be great.

I want to see big mammals! We are only going 1.5-2 days and staying the night. Any places to stay or tours recommended?

Kuiburi (3hrs drive South of Bangkok) is good for Elephants, pretty much a certainty to see if it is not too dry, and maybe gaur too.
Other than that there are Kaeng Krachan and Khao Yai that are around a 2.5 hr drive from Bangkok. Gibbons, porcupines, deer, monkeys, hornbills, etc. Always something interesting to see at both parks
Down in the South the area around Khao Sok reservoir is good for mammal spotting.
