“Cheap, safe, but grungy”
Reviewed March 5, 2009

The Mikusa has a pretty garden exterior and it has wireless internet. The Mikusa is in a safe location and walking distance to Hope Road and Bob Marley museum. Pharmacy and grocery store at Sovereign shopping center are ½ mile walk. These are the high points. But, if you want a room comparable to a minimal budget hotel in the US be forewarned, this is not it. We stayed twice, for 2 days at the beginning and end of our trip to Jamaica. The first room was tolerable as a cheap place to stay. The second room we stayed in had little hot water in the shower, a drip of warm one day to dance in, and none the next. We ended up heating water on the stove for a sponge bath. No hot water piped to the bathroom sink. A general feel of grunginess. It took forever to boil water on the stove, which we did for drinking water (maybe water is Ok, but we didn’t chance it and did not get sick in Jamaica.) Their reservation system is not reliable – both stays we had to overcome some kind of issue. We reserved a 2-bed room and when we got there (second time) there was only a single bed. We ended up throwing a stained mattress on the floor for the second person. So, if cost is your primary consideration it’s a tolerable place to crash, but don’t be fooled by the pretty internet pictures.

We expected a nicer stay based on the price and the reviews. We asked for a king sized bed and paid $85. The room was big and included a kitchen. But our 'king' sized bed was actually two twin beds pushed together, which we couldnt see when we were initially shown the room. It's very uncomfortable when you're sleeping and you're slipping in the crack! Also, the A/C didnt work when we got there and it took the maintenence man 15 min to fix it. In addition, it had no remote and no buttons, and we couldnt adust it or turn it off/on. On the plus side, the hotel is in a residential area that is quiet and safe; the landscaping is beautiful and unique and they have a cozy, sezy gazebo in the front. They also have free wireless - nice plus.

Stayed January 2008
