Reviewed November 21, 2005

Please please listen to me and DO NOT stay at this property unless your life depends upon it!
I was forced to stay in this dump because of an error in reservations at another hotel in Antigua.
I was insulted by the front reception staff and told that the only room that they had in my "price range" ($99 USD without breakfast and $129 USD with breakfast!) was one without airconditioning!
To add insult to injury, I was also asked to leave $50 USD CASH in order that I could use the TV remote control during my stay! What planet had I landed on!!?? I did get this cash back the next day.
There is NO phone in this hotel and cell phones don't seem to work on the island.
I was worried all night that I would get bitten by some manner of bugs or have things crawling on me when I awoke. The room was clean-ish but in old, rough condition.
It is in a very impoverished and busy (vehicle traffic) part of the city with no view to speak of and seemingly no ammenities. $5.00 USD for a couple of scrambled eggs made me happy that I brought "power bars" from home!
I was not offered any hospitality and was frightened to be there and relieved to leave!
Heed my warnings oh friendly travellers and DON'T stay here!!!!
