Lets get the negative stuff over with first so I can get on with the positives! Yes I would have to say that the room we stayed in was not stellar. Bathroom needed work. Moldy around the shower tiles. Toilet wobbled. I took a deep breath every time I went in there. The room itself had outdated decor. Ceiling fan... More

Loved this hotel. Let's just say they were some of the nicest people we meet in the Bahamas. All staff was always there to help you and cared about you. The hotel is a little dated, but for the price I could not ask for more. Genie was the best. She saved us so much time by scheduling everything for... More

We choose this inn based on the high review score here. I don't think it's an accurate reflection of reality, though. The staff is very nice, the location seems odd (but the private harbor it has is a nice touch), but the rooms are pretty terrible. The window AC unit is super loud, but it has to run all night...

I really wanted to give this place 5 stars but the physical condition of the rooms would not allow it. If you need a modern room with all the amenities, this is not the place for you - BUT you will be the worse for it as the staff make a stay here well worth it. Every staff member we... More

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
