So very reasonably priced. Has decent sized rooms with serene views. I was so pleasantly surprised. Even has a small one-site restaurant which was convenient. My room was also very clean. Front desk agent was pleasant and friendly. Would definitely recommend if you want a nice place to stay, with a canal view, and if you're okay staying in a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bell Channel Inn and left knowing we will return again. The property is an older one but, is comfortable. Our room was clean and the service was excellent. We had a 1st floor room that opened out to the pool area. We also had a lovely view of the water . It was... More

Spent the first day/night at Bell Channel before heading to the eastern part of the island. While not a "looker" on the outside, the Bell Channel was a great place to spend a night. The rooms were nice and spacious and each room had a balcony that overlooked the pool (which was great!) and marina.The bathroom could use a little... More

If you want the freedom to plan your own vacation on Grand Bahama, this is the place to go. cheaper than the resorts, and thorough personal attention in all customer service. Not all-inclusive, so you are free to plan your own meals however you want them (there is a restaurant in the hotel if you don't want to go anywhere... More

I visited Grand Bahama Island for the third time in April 2015, and again stayed at the Bell Channel Inn. Most of the staff remembered me from previous visits. The rooms are basic, clean and spacious. A broken latch on the bathroom door was fixed in less than an hour while we were at breakfast. This older hotel, with a... More

My girlfriend and I decided to go to freeport for a vacation/birthday celebration. We chose the Bell Channel as it was number one on trip advisor and very reasonable in price. Here are the pros and cons of staying here. Pros: inexpensive under $100 per night verses $150 plus for nearby hotels. Very quiet in general as it is on... More

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 The room itself had outdated decor.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
