“Great little hotel on Saipan!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2009

Now, I've been to Saipan several times and have always stayed at one of the larger hotels. But since I was traveling with my grandmother, she insisted we stay at the Summer Holiday, which is her regular Saipan hotel. Anyways, the hotel is next to the Federal Court building and the Garapan Church. The beach is across the road from the hotel. There is a Thai restaurant in the building right in front of the hotel. I recommend staying on the third floor. You can see the beach from your hotel door entrance.

Now for the hotel room. The hotel room is worth every penny. It isn't fancy but it is very comfortable. The beds, pillows are comfortable. There is a little kitchenette with a built-in electric stove, over-head vent w/ light, a mini-fridge, and a sink. It isn't fancy but it is perfectly clean and workable. There is a balcony that goes onto the shared lanai area. It is very windy during the day and the night. The hotel comes equipped with fresh water in a pitcher in the refrigerator, and a little bar of soap in the bathroom. The bathroom is not fancy at all, it has 60's decor and definitely needs a remodel, but the bathroom is clean except maybe the floor of the bathtub but it isn't that bad.

The only bad turnoff about this hotel is that the water that comes out of the faucet is salty. Saipan lacks an aquifer system therefore the water is salty. But some other hotels have water purifiers that take out the salt. But the water is manageable.

There is also a Thai massage parlor on the second floor of the hotel and they charge something like $10 for an hour. HEAVEN!

Would recommend this hotel to anyone!
