Wonderful Service

Although this property could use some more updates, the staff was great and the pool was nice. The beach is right across the street. We were able to take bus 10 into Nassau for the straw market and also to the fish fry.

Not what I expected

The hotel is very close to the airport but not really that close to anything else around. You pretty much have to eat at the hotel unless you want to walk or taxi somewhere. It was quite confusing to get the info we needed. We only stayed there one night but that was enough for us. No towels when we got there and the room definitely didn't strike me for the price but that may be reasonable in Nassau I don't know. The whole place was quite unorganized. There was not really a clear idea of what to do when you got there. If you haven't been there before ask questions everywhere and if something doesn't seem right make sure it is before going on. Wouldn't really recommend this place but for a one night stay and that's about it.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The only restaurant anywhere there is their own ran by a couple people that work there. It is a very limited menu. Food wasn't that bad but could use some touch up in some places

good value

This Place is a little past it's prime and dare I say Bohemian. However many things make up for that. The owner is charming. The location near the airport and out of Nassau proper are appealing. While not directly on the beach it has proximity and views. The Bahamian food served is reasonably priced and excellent. It's an excellent overnight for people traveling to the out islands, or for and inexpensive trip to paradise during a long winter. I highly recommend provided your not looking for "Atlantis".

Good value as a stopover and for scuba divers

This is a cool place, good funky vibe and very friendly helpful staff. Honor bar and great food, especially the pot roast and cracked conch. We love stopping here before getting early morning flights to Bahamas Air to the Out Islands. Like a home away from home.

Not bad for the price

This place was clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was home cooked and reasonably priced. The vibe was quite, stick to yourself. Also it is a $30 cab ride to downtown so factor that in when considering price! The owner was super friendly and helpful.

Rat Trap

They should not charge for the rooms, they are so bad. We stayed there for no more than 3 hours, packed and moved away. It was scary. The rooms did not have light fixtures, they were exposed bulbs dangling from wires. The pool was green. The owners' restaurant was their house. Doors did not lock, bathrooms were grungy, Uneven sidewalks with ragged grass. We tried, but just could not lower our standards. Lost a night room $, but well worth the change. Went to the Sheraton, and walked in. Not the cheapest, but at least you felt safe. "Beach" was down the hill and across the road. No sand. Just hard coral and bushes. Not sure these other folks stayed that rated it acceptable. Its Not where I visited.

charming setting

Convenient stopover for outisland destinations. Charming setting above a beautiful beach. Simple but adequate accomodations set in lovingly tended garden.

Creepy

We stayed one night here because it was the closest to the airport and we were leaving at 5:30 the next morning. The owner and people that work there are very friendly and run a home-like inn that has a bar that's on an honor system. The dining room was closed the Saturday night we were there. The facility is extremely old and tired. The room was less than basic - the bathroom was very old, tiny. The walls are paper thin - we were up all night thanks to the couple in the next room. At $150+ the only thing we saved was cab fare. Definitely would not stay here again!
