In walking distance to Queens Park Savannah, Botanical Garden, Great Seven, Downtown, etc. After a walk the balcony is a perfect place to relax. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed staying there while being in Port of Spain.

friendly staff and a big, clean room. Was not possible to walk to the centre of town, which required a short cab ride. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space in communal areas. Would happily stay there again.

People who is in charge are kind and open to help to costumers. It is well located, less than 4 kms to downtown, the bus terminal and ferry terminal are close enough to go by walk. It is at 3 blocks from Queen´s Park Savannah and several of the embassies are close. Just turning the block there is a nice... More

This place was OK. The rooms were OK, the location was OK. More or less the safest area of town, so no worries of walking at night. Loads of people constantly running round the park. Was good value for money. Grumpiest receptionist in the world though. Absolutely useless.

First I like to say that I already reserved my room for Carnival 2k15. The Par-may-la inn is a great place to stay for carnival time. I was within walking distance to everything. The location is perfect. I played with the band TRIBE and on carnival Tuesday morning as soon as I left the guesthouse, my band was down the... More

I stayed at this hotel overnight as I was in Trinidad for a couple days and just needed somewhere to stay. The building from the street looked very pretty and there is parking on site. However in reference to the parking, it does become a bit of an issue during the day as there is an office also located on... More

We stayed here for a week while completing a Habitat for Humanity Global Build with a group of 13 people. Although this is not a five star motel it was very comfortable, clean, a great location, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Geeta the receptionist made us feel at home and went out of her way to make our... More

Good location for touring the city and near the Savannah park. We had so early departures so we did not had a change to try the breakfeast. Upstairs rooms can be a bit hard to sleep if people are spending the evening in the communal space since there is practically no sound proofing. Ask for a downstairs room or a... More

The Barbados U19 Rugby Team arrived on Sunday July 7, 2013. The staff immediately made us feel welcome, even though many of our rooms were not quite ready. The Inn has free wifi, cable TV in every room, and is located near the Savannah and the Oval. Definitely no frills, but the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and must... More

It is very sad to read false accusations by ADULTS. Firstly,payment was made on registration by the agent who brought Mr. Clifford, Dirk and Shelly Ann to our property . We had no talk of payment with any of the 3 guests Mr. Clifford can attest to that. Secondly, no complaints was made by the couple on the 1st or... More
