“unexpected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

My reason for staying was unexpected and unpleasant, I was on a cruise...got sick, had to get off the shhp to fly home. Was put up at Toby's for one night waiting for my flight home, at first glance late at night I thought "oh no!" We went inside the lobby and it was very clean, very quaint. The receptionist was also pleasant, after a not very happy afternoon this was refreshing. We were given a clean, comfortable, quiet room. They were very accommodating getting rides to airport in morning. If you are looking for nice comfortable place I highly recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The Hotel ist close to the airport and in direct neigbourhood to the hit strip. You can easily walk from here to town center without beeing bothered or anything. Just make sure, to tell the staff at the front desk and in the restaurant if you booked incl. breakfast/dinner or not. You will get another menue in the restaurant if you stay as a B & B-guest.
Rooms are a bit old, but always clean, the pool is clean and is the center of the cute garden. These were our first few days before starting a round trip and for this is was absolutely right!

Great place. Perfect for your stay in Mobay. Down the road from the airport, yet in a lovely quiet garden with pool and pool bar, ice machine next to it so handy.....
Room great, clean, spacious, lovely bed, bathroom, great balcony (garden or road side, which I prefer cos you can watch the local action). Lovely employees, good restaurant, bar, lovely karp pool with bridge and the best is the location. Out the door and onto the hip strip with Cornwall Beach and Doctor's Cave beach (entrance fee but all amenities), shops, market - do walk through! - and around the other corner 10 mins to Dead End Beach, wonderful, beach and bar to stop at and chat to the lovely locals. I always stay at Toby's when in Mobay.....

Room Tip: Garden if you want quiet, road side if you want a local show :-) (still pretty quiet too)....

The property was nicely landscaped, secure, always clean. The rooms were a good size and kept clean. There were a few small issues like no hot water one day and the sliding glass patio door could only be opened from the inside (one room.) But it was definitely a good resort for the price. The staff was friendly and responsive. The maid even did our laundry for a small fee. The property is on a busy street. I recommend asking for a room at the back. We were there for 9 days and the restaurant menu was somewhat limited, but that got us out exploring other venues. The location is excellent. We walked to just about everything in town and hired a taxi to go further. There are two pools. We only used the larger one. It was clean and had ample chairs for relaxing. The poolside bar was good.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property are quieter.

The holetal is small but very nice foir the price. The staff are very nice. the rooms are comfortable and clean. The fiurst room I was given, did not have a coffee pot, but come to find out that I had been given a standard room, by mistake, the problem was quickly solved and I was moved to the deluxe room that I had paid for. Some reviews spaoke about the noise level. but it was very quiet , except my room was not to far from the out door. It stopped about 11pm. but still was not so much that I would complain. I WOULD stay there again. It is a safe place. As was traveling alone.

Room Tip: room 39 if you choose a standard room, room 66 if you choose a deluxe

Stayed in this hotel for three nights in January as a family the front desk staff were very professional and very pleasured, always greeting you with a smile.

The hotel is right on the hip strip , that was very handy, also handy for the airport,used the pool for early morning swim

Hotel was clean, hotel ground was also well kept, we only have breakfast in the hotel which we found great, the JA breakfast was wonderful
We would stay here again no problem.

Room Tip: Alway lock you suitcases when going out!

The hotel offers quality service and good maintenance. We loved every meal on the restaurant, the pool, the room and the overall conditions. Most of the time the staff was friendly (one or other exception). The resort’s driver – Paul – takes you to several places by a good price and explain interesting things about the places in the way.
The only thing that bothered us was the nearby street, Gloucester Avenue. Too much harassment, as we never experienced anywhere else. But it seemed to us that this is Montego Bay’s characteristic: hotel – tour – hotel. We usually walk around the places we travel to, but this is not the place for it. So if you’re staying there, plan your trip and ask Paul to take you to your destinies!
