Manager must have changed because the rooms my coworker and I received were great. Very affordable. Cool location, near the mall and close to the airport. We stayed here on a stopover. Would come back.

Great affordable hotel. I hate when people complain about lack of luxury at a budget PRICED HOTEL! Hotels in West Africa are expensive. Why I do not know, but this gem is affordable and comfortable. Hot showers, Cold Air Condition. The recent power outages all over Accra are a pain but the staff switches on the generator so you will... More

I visited here recently and management now only offers suites to all guests, while other rooms are being upgraded. Despite that, the rates are still super affordable. If you want a deal with all the basic amenities and great service, you should definitely stay here.

The stay here was outstanding, service was great, staff very friendly. Nice rooms, kid friendly with great places. Although we had no kids, you could hear them running up and down the hall. I would go back again and stay, and I hope to have a chance soon again.

I could have booked anything in Ghana. I booked this place on count of the complimentary airport transfers. Said so in the description on hotels.com. Even made a special request , with flight info upon booking. Since I hadn't gotten a confirmation from the hotel regarding my pickup, I emailed them with the flight info again. NO response. So what... More

Eric B, Manager at Hotel Obama, responded to this review

Hello Sir, We are sorry to hear of your experience at the hotel. Unfortunately, due to the extremely affordable price of our rooms, all shuttles incur a fee of $10. I am not sure why you were not informed of this by Expedia upon booking, but it does not dispute the fact that there is a nominal charge for the... More

I have seen this hotel's name on many hotel booking sites and even driven past it's signboards during my previous stay in Ghana but for some reason I have never really been interested. Well thinking back now maybe I should have been. I found myself at Hotel Obama due to a mix up with my room booking at my usual... More

I reluctantly accepted a change to Obama Hotel when the Hotel I was initially booked in had no space even after booking early. I was not disappointed. It was less than a 1 star hotel. The hotel though clean was in a state of disrepair. My toilet was flooded and the tv obsolete (CRT). Had to walk out of the... More

I don't know how they can legally affiliate themselves with Michelle and President Obama by naming their rooms after them, but it's a disgrace to my country that they do so. We read some good reviews about the place, so decided to check it out in hopes of spending a weekend here. We had our taxi driver wait outside for... More

I usually don't rate hotels if I only stayed 1 night. But I had to warn off people who read how great this hotel is. If I was in my late teens and backpacking on a budget with friends, it would be great. I ended up there as I transited in Accra on my way to next door Ivory Coast.... More
