The Hotel On Pownal certainly has an excellent marketing team...I'll give them that.
What I saw and booked on-line was definately NOT what we got. We had driven 2000 kms and just wanted a nice, comfortable room to sleep in for our three night stay. To start, a shoebox of a room that we had to climb two sets of stairs to get to...no elevator...carrying a carload of stuff. If we were both walking around in the room at the same time we were tripping on each other...literally. A window air conditioner that was covered by curtains so that we either got zero air or had to move a chair over to raise the curtains to get airflow. Don't look out the window either! Unless you would like to see an alleyway filled with garbage cans. Our wi-fi did not work at all the first night and by the second night, the connection was only strong enough sitting right at the door, just inside the room. When we spoke to the hotel staff about this, they just shrugged and said they had no one on staff that knew what to do. The deluxe breakfast was just any other ordinary complimentary breakfast and far from their advertising of "deluxe"...nothing special...except for the dust bunnies on the shutters above the toaster. Save your money people and book somewhere else! Luxury hotel prices for a motel room just don't cut the mustard! Although a beautful island and the people we met were amazing, I would rather sleep in my car than stay at the Hotel on Pownal again.
