I spent 4 nites at Sam's guesthouse during the spring break. The location is great! Only a block away from all the restaurants, bars, etc. It is also not far from downtown Port of Spain and many touristy sites. Polly and her daughter Sam are superfriendly! They gave me tips about where to go what to do etc. And Polly... More

We arrived at 6:00 am and woke up the tenant of the place, but she still welcomed us with a smile and told us to go to bed! We offered to pay for the room now but she insisted that it was time to sleep and that we could watch it later! We really felt that she was not about... More

My brother and I stayed at Sam's guest house in early Jan as we needed a place to stay whilst attending a family funeral. The guesthouse is ideally situated, just off the 'Avenue' where you will find several bars/restaurants and also across the highway is 'Movietown' where you will find a few other restaurants, cinema and shops. Polly was very... More

From the time I arrived at Sam's I felt welcome. I was greeted warmly by Polly and the accommodations were comfortable and clean. The guesthouse is centrally located, which made getting around a breeze; from downtown to the Avenue, etc. Never once did I feel unsafe, Miss Polly went above and beyond to accommodate me. If ever I visit Trinidad... More

Sam and her mother treated my friends and I just like family. We stay there during carnival and they helped us book transportation, but party tickets, locate the different camps, and even get fabulous carnival makeup done. It was extremely safe and everyone there is very nice and helpful.

I have family in Trinidad, but when I want a bit of privacy, I LOVE staying at Sam's Guesthouse! Pauline, the manager, makes you feel as if you're staying in her own home by creating a charming and hospitable ambiance. All the spaces, including the rooms, are clean and orderly. Also, the rooms are quite comfortable and are equipped with... More

A group of girls and I decided to go to Trinidad for carnival. One of the girls we were traveling with suggested we stay at Sam's Gueshouse. It turns out she ways sooooo right. Part of the reason we had such a great time was the relative short distance between the house and all of the action on the Avenue.... More
