Very nice place to stay

Would recommend Sun, Mar 9, 2014
The staff was great, helpful and friendly. the room was very clean. Had a little trouble with the room Wi-Fi. It is right on a main street so at night when you had the windows open it was a little loud, but all in all we would stay there again.

Bait and switch

Would not recommend Sat, Mar 1, 2014
Overall, our stay was fine. Paid around $114 for one night stay for the convenient location. The room was clean which was my ultimate goal, however I felt taken advantage of when learning that the $25 breakfast voucher I was supposed to receive was not a $25 breakfast voucher. Instead it was a limited selection of either eggs/bacon/potatoes, or yogurt/granola, or banana-Mac nut pancakes (worth $15 if you went to the restaurant and paid cash for 2 people). It was suggested to put down a $4 tip (for 2 people) in addition to the voucher. The food was good and had a nice view, but I don't like being told I am getting one thing and then finding out I'm getting something else. If I hadn't felt like I was being lied to, I would give a slightly higher rating. I chose to pay extra to stay at this hotel because of the value-add of the full breakfast, instead of staying at Uncle Billy's Hotel for $95/night with free contiental breakfast. So the room was clean, had to keep shades closed as our room faced the major road, but there was good laundry facilities, air conditioning, free wifi, the beds were comfortable and room was quiet even though it was right next to the road. Suggestion: if you are planning to stay here but check in after 3pm, call ahead and ask them to save you a parking spot. It is not "ample" parking like they say on their website and they are likely to run out unless they hold a spot for you. The free public parking down the street fills up quick because everyone parks there to go shopping or to the beach. People were constantly circling the lot like vultures, waiting for a spot to open.

Time saver

Call ahead to save a parking spot before you checkin. You will waste time on your vacation looking for a spot in the free lot.

Friendly, Clean, and Convenient

Would recommend Tue, Jan 21, 2014
This was my second stay at this hotel -- the last time was over 4 years ago. I was glad to see that the hotel looks just as good as it did before and I was quickly reminded how friendly and helpful the staff are. It's not a fancy hotel, just very well kept and efficient -- perfect for going out during the day to explore the island.

Good access to the city center with enough room space

Would recommend Thu, Jan 16, 2014
The access to the city center and shopping malls is quite good. The parking space is limited but nearby municipal parking is available. The room is comfortable and does not too much but sufficient for usual visit.

Dining

IN the shopping mall with KTA supermarket, there is a good Mexican restaurant.

Cheap and cheerful

Would recommend Mon, Jan 13, 2014
This hotel is older and basic but the fantastic location makes it a great value. The woman who checked after a late arrival was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and fairly simple. Only complaint is the small beds. Made a good base for a couple of days of exploring the island. The breakfast at the cafe next door was also a great deal.

Good location for getting around

Would recommend Sat, Dec 28, 2013
Staff lovely, friendly. Bed too soft, pillows too hard, sheets too short, but clean. Ocean is warmer than the pool! Restaurant cooking smells drift towards hotel, too smelly outside. Location for walking to shops, etc is good. Will consider a condo next time for conveniences such as eating in.

Money saver

Rent a scooter to purchase items from Costco or Target or Safeway-walk to these is far, uphill and way too hot any time of the day!
