My husband and I were in Nassau for two days on a bureaucratic mission. Our preferred form of accommodation is definitely not the big resort type and so we went for the low-budget Arawak Inn, located on the edge of downtown. It's actually only a 5-minute drive from the centre of town.
The inn has fewer than 10 rooms. Our room had one double bed, one single bed, a little kitchenette and a bathroom. It was not brand new but it was in decent condition. Likewise, it wasn't eat-off-the-floor clean, but neither was it dirty. Service was very good and friendly, check-in and check-out was simple and you can't beat the price.
If you aren't looking to spend a long time in Nassau and you don't want the big anonymous resort feel, consider the Arawak Inn.
