This small guest house is located on a hilltop across from the entrance to Montego Bay Airport. Free pickup and return are offered by the delightful owner, Colin Tatum. He is amazingly friendly and "at your service," while maintaining a really professional attitude. Our room was clean, spacious and well-appointed with two queen-size beds, cable TV, easy chairs, desk and good lighting, and a plain but complete bath. We arrived in mid-afternoon and the air-conditioning was off. It took till late night for it to really cool off the room. After that is was fine for our two-day stay. Colin gave a free tour of the area in his van and also made our bus reservations to Kingston, taking us the day before so we could buy them at a discount. He drove us to the terminal at 4:30AM, too. There is no food served, but a college cafeteria and very Jamaican restaurant are adjacent. It's a long but doable walk to the restaurants, clubs and beaches of the strip. Taxis tend to be very expensive and the bus service hard to use. Higher-end restaurants and resorts are farther away, but Colin also drove us to one for a special dinner our last night. I enthusiastically recommend Colin Tatum and his Ridgeway Guest House.
