I have been staying here for several weeks now and am truly impressed. It is not the most modern building but it makes up for that in spades. The place is very clean, the staff genuinely friendly and the bar/restaurant is a favorite with the local ex pat community. Nothing is too much trouble for these people and Yolanda in... More

This Inn is an older property, but I can say the staff are very friendly. When you arrive, you must take the time with GENIE from concierge. She is very informative and knows a lot about the island. She goes over all the tours and ins and outs! !! She is absolutely a lovely woman. They have a restaurant upstairs... More

If you're looking for a local hotel in the Bahamas instead of staying at the sometimes overpopulated resorts, this is it. Rooms were spacious and air-conditioned (thank goodness), and there was a great restaurant Upstairs. My only complaint for staying here versus staying at a resort is the walk to Port Lucaya and the beaches. It's only about a 15... More

I was never in need of anything. Whether it was towels, directions, assistance, someone was always there to help in the most friendly ways. Miss Gene who handles the excursions was awesome. She truly listened to what we wanted & made sure it happened. She would even call on her tune off to be sure we had a good time.... More

Dear JCKellman, The title of your comment “The staff made us feel as if we were the most important guests they had.” is probably the best compliment you could have given us. That is the goal of every staff member. We truly have staff that genuinely wants everyone to have a great experience in the Bahamas. We can’t wait to... More

I stayed there for about two weeks and it was a very nice and quiet stay and the picturesque Port Lucaya (with a typical Bahamian market, casino, beach) is only a 10 minute walk away. The staff is very friendly and the view on the water is very nice and there is a good restaurant.
