“Affordable digs in Nassau”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Towne Hotel was a nice little place with an international and local vibe. Many Bahamians, Americans, and Europeans stayed there during the week I was there. The $85/night price tag included a small continental breakfast (toast and jam, sliced ham and cheese, tea and coffee, orange slices, hard-boiled eggs) and wi-fi. Compared to the larger, more expensive hotels it was a great deal.
My room was a bit dusty, the floor needed a thorough sweeping, and the windows were old with cracked screens but that was easy to get used to or ignore. The pool area is charming for sitting around with drinks as they have little white holiday lights strung up and umbrellas for shade. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect, centrally located in downtown Nassau.

This was the cheapest in Nassau and not your luxury all inclusive. The room reminded me of a typical caribbean bedroom out of the 80s lol But was very comfortable and was centered in the middle of Nassau. so i though.

Only issue my friend and i had was a trail of ants in the bathroom other than that this place wasnt too bad. I only slept in it anyways. Happy travels my friends!

I stayed here for 3 nights with friends and we had problems right from the start.
despite having paid for the hotel in advance, when we got there they claimed not to have received our reservation or payment. after an extemely long wait with lots of "bad attitude" by hotel management, we were finally given a room.
the room itself was an ok size and mostly clean however the bathroom was another story. very tiny and it just looked a bit grimy.
the free breakfast is basic(toast, eggs and cheese),,
in terms of location, we didn't have a big problem because it was right up the road from the straw market and the water taxis which take you over to paradise island.
it is not far too from public beaches and maybe a 10 minute walk from the famous Arawak Cay fish fry.
overall, we had a good vacation but it was because of the great expreinces we had outside the hotel. I would return to the Bahamas in a heartbeat but Towne Hotel won't be on my list of places to stay.

Thank God I just had to stay one night at this place. And thank God I had packed a sleeping bag for the following steps of my trip. In a word: Towne Hotel is DIRTY. Sheets had a collection of left behind hair, the bathroom was disgusting, the place stinks.
I wouldn't be acceptable to pay 50 bucks to stay here, but they charge you 95 USD with those taxes and gratuities...
Its location is fine but it is not worth, try somewhere else!

I don't really recommend staying in downtown but if you you do this is an almost decent place and it's pretty cheap. The staff was not friendly, the free breakfast was not very good. The lobby was very nice and offered free wi-fi. The pool was tiny and super cute. Your a few blocks from the beach and some nice restaurants. Loud local children were always around. You get what you pay for.

What a surprise when our taxi pulled up to this little hotel in downtown Nassau. It was exactly what we were expecting. Atmosphere with flags outside, quaint and CONVENTIENT !!!!

We could walk to everything, even the local grocery. Don't be late, it closes at 6:00 and everyone in the shops seem to leave at that time.

Getting back to the hotel, it was very clean, the pool was not the cleaness, but you have the ocean. Breakfast was included and good. Best of all, it was the island decor and most of all, Max, the Blue and Gold Macaw met you in the lobby. He loves people food, but don't feed him cheese, the owner does not like that. (Parrots do like cheese and the calcium is good for them, but I didn't own the bird, I only breed parrots for 25 years !) Have fun and go with the flow!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor, there was noise, but an election celebration was happening until 12:00...

Book another hotel - It's just not worth it..

I booked the room at hotels.com and taxes and all charges was included, we thought. The owner had us pay an extra 22$ for "tax" on the actual room price of 89$. The only reason we payed it was that we arrived very late and had no other place to go.

The room was just awful - an aircon that didn't work, dirty toilette and high noises from the big road next to the hotel buildning are some examples.

Save your self some trouble and book another hotel,
