We stayed here in December of 2013. We saw very few other vehicles in the parking lot, and now we know why. I stay in motels and hotels at least 100 nights a year for work, and this is the worst motel I've ever been in, in my life. Dirty-- carpet is dirty, the bathtub was covered with soap scum,... More

As manager of Alister Square Inn I was most surprised to read this Trip Advisor Review about our property. The description of the unit provided by the guest is alarming if it were correct. There are no rooms at Alister Square Inn that reflect the condition as documented by this guest. While there is coffee available in the front lobby24/7,... More

The Good - the front desk was nice and check in a breeze. I paid $49.99 so got a great deal. The Flat Screen tv, microwave, frig looked new. The full bed was comfortable, pillow very thin. Phone worked, blow dryer worked. The Bad - Was told all rooms were Non Smoking. Not true. The Handicapped room smelled like rank... More

Thank you for your comments as we continually strive to exceed guest expectations. It is true that we are a pet friendly accommodation but only a few units are designated for pets. Had the guest contacted management about these concerns we would have assisted the guest in relocating to another unit. Unfortunately the behavior of others we have no control... More

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend. We paid $80 a night for a room with two king beds. The room was fairly clean and served its purpose. The only time we spent there was to sleep. The beds were a little stif and the Internet did not work the entire time I was there (two nights). I don't... More

Check in was friendly and ;the rooms were large. Had a great air unit. Everything worked in the room and the bed was very nice. Parking was easy. Pool is... More

The first thing we noticed was a bug in the bathroom, we brushed it off not making much mind of it. Later that night, my friend woke up to a bug crawling on her shoulder. After jumping off the bed, we later saw a bug on the floor. We refused to get back in the bed and didnt sleep the... More

There is the adage "you get what you pay for" for a reason! We stayed here while my husband was in a fishing tournament. It's definitely older property, but the rooms and bedding was clean and the air conditioning workd so good we had to turn it down twice! This is a great place for people heading to Port A... More

I stay here everytime I visit Port A. Always clean and right in the center of town. You will have to drive to the beach but after a fun day in the sun, you can walk to any nightlife you want and not worry about drinking and driving. Not the Hilton but who stays in their room when you're in... More
