I stayed at the Bell Channel for a night on business in Freeport. I didn’t need anything super high end, but felt I got an amazing deal here. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I think checking in took less than a minute. I got in later than expected and was hungry, convenient

Stayed here for 1 night en route to joining a dive boat. Pros: Staff very friendly, good food; Cons: Quite pricey (room rate and food/drink), rooms could definitely do with a lick of paint. Many thanks also to Genie for her advice on the area and help in keeping the local taxi dr

The first thing you will see in the lobby is Genie, the social rep. She won't see you because she is blind as a bat and the sweetest person ever. She will book fun things to do throughout your stay and even go with you in some cases. Rooms are roomy, bar is cozy and food is excel

This hotel has a great atmosphere with friendly staff and a central location. Fantastic "Upstairs Bar" and a good restaurant.
We stayed there for three weeks in October and were satisfied with that.

We will certainly stay there again the next time.

Hello, is there still a shuttle to Taino Beach, and is the beach free/public? Does the shuttle go anywhere else, for example, to Port Lucaya or Lucaya Marketpace? Are microwaves available at your hotel? Thanks in advance for answering my questions.
There was no shuttle when we were there in January. Everything is by foot, jitney or taxi. Jitney is the most economical if you have to go more than you're comfortable walking. We always walked to Port Lucaya and the Marketplace. It only takes about 15 minutes. We weren't interested in a microwave, so I cannot answer that question. They are pretty good about answering emails.

How far away is the beach. Can we bring a cooler to the beach and drink beer, does the room have a fridge? Thank you.
Hi Lori, We have several beaches nearby. If you want to bring a cooler with beer, you will have to use a public beach. I suggest Taino Beach, a taxi can take you there from Bell Channel Inn in approx. 5 min. As for your last question, yes we have fridges in the rooms. Hope this was helpful.

Hello, I have not recieved a confirmation on my booking at the Bell Channel. My reservation is for o4/20 and 4/21 and my confirmation number is 128809883537. My name is Kenneth Yetka. Please advise. JKYETKA@GMAIL>COM
I have been communicating with them since September until my trip mid March by email and never had a problem. Sometimes there was a short delay in response (a few days). I booked through expedia and did not have an issue. When I showed up they were expecting me and checked me in without any problem. I am sure they will do the same for you.

"best view."
"2nd floor is nice.. just get lucky"
"We stayed in B7. It was GORGEOUS"
"If the popular bar keeps you awake, try the rooms on the first and second floors on the south side."
