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

I am currently staying in this dump of a place and not only is the staff rude, don't care about the people staying here, but all they care about is taking your money....... the air-conditioners are loud loud loud and needs 24hours before it begins to cool down...... I complained after the second night not wanting to sound like I... 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

I stayed at the Inn for Carnival 2K13 and was very pleased with the accommodations. The Inn is in a great location and walking distance or a short taxi drive to most places. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and tidy and setup for a comfortable stay. The internet service was fast and I never... More

Ok, it's not the Hyatt, but it's much cheaper and great value for travelers on a budget. Centrally located, clean and tidy and in a safe neighborhood. Very close to Queen's Park Oval to watch the cricket too. I would definitely return here next time I am in Trinidad.

Almost like a hostile, but cleaner and nicer. Good location right by local cuisine as well as a Rituals Coffee Shop, internet cafe and an America Sports Bar. It's not a standard hotel with pools, landscaping and all that but it is a great place to stay if you are on a budget and looking to be a traveler and... More
