This hotel is very inexpensive, especially for the Bahamas so I was weary of what to expect. The reviews all said that the rooms weren't anything special but were very clean. I was prepared and that's exactly what they are. Nothing fancy at all but very clean and good size. The bed was ok, not great but the linens were... More

This hotel is on the opposite side of the canal to the Port Lucaya complex. The rooms are a little dated but ours had a modern TV and excellent A/C. The room was large, had it's own fridge and a coffee maker was provided when we asked The balcony faces the channel and was basically but comfortably furnished. The staff... More

We arrived at the Bell Channel Inn by taxi from the ferry terminal, it cost us $30 between 3 people which wasn't too bad. We stayed for 5 nights, and would have stayed even longer if we could! Very warm welcome from the lady at reception who checked us in quick and answered any questions we had. Beach towels are... More

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

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
