Stayed only one night, but it was a great value! the neighbors were very loud, but that isn't the fault of the hotel. My biggest issue was that they gave me the WiFi password... only to find that the signal strength was too weak to work in my room.

I just returned from a 3 night stay which coincided with Thanksgiving. Although they have recently had an upgrade and renovations made to this hotel, the bed was uncomfortable and the neighbors were loud on Friday and Saturday night. I have to admit, though, that the night manager did call them and ask for them to quiet down. Management was... More

We came into town unexpectedly due to business. We needed an inexpensive place as we were paying our way and it was already after 5:00 on a Saturday. After trying several places who advertised one price and quoted another in person, we decided to keep looking. We saw a small place that advertised a vacancy and all rooms $49.00. We... More

If you are looking for a 5 star resort this is NOT the place for you but if you are looking for a simple, clean room in a great location this is a great place to stay! The room we stayed in even had a mini kitchen with a full size stove/oven and refrigerator. You would be hard pressed to... More

Stayed 3 nights this weekend. Nice room, great a/c, great wifi in room, nice towels and toiletries. Friendly staff and close to everything on island. If you are going fishing or just to the beach, this is a good location. Also, ice machine worked great!

There is a saying on the internet-- Pictures or it never happened. When I posted my review, I didn't post pictures, because--why? But when it was implied that I was misrepresenting my stay... well, time to add the pictures. We stayed here in December of 2013. We saw very few other vehicles in the parking lot, and now we know...

Alister Square Inn has completed a total renovation, including flooring and new furniture. It is true that breakfast is no longer offered during the spring and summer. In lieu of the breakfast management chose to reduce both week day and week end rates. A continental breakfast is offered during the winter season. More
