“Budget rooms with friendly staff”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

An excellen tsmall place to spend a night not two. Clean and comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to the Hip Strip, but choice of food was not good. Hotel offers no food or activities and their all inclusive ability is a limited a la carte menu. A 3 star hotel!

We needed a place to spend out first night in Montego Bay. Toby's was clean and was easy to get to the Hip Strip. I would recommend it if you were on a budget and needed a place to stay. Toby's is a fair place at a fair price!

Toby's is situated at the end of the Hip strip about one mile from Montego Bay airport. The location is a great place for either going up and down the strip or even walking into town. There is a couple of non private beaches within 200 - 800 yards which are used by the locals. The place is undergoing a needed plan of refurbishment but the rooms are a good size and the beds are big doubles. The rooms are cleaned every day and you can ask the staff to do some washing if you need for a small fee.The staff are all nice and there is 24 hour security. It has two pools and all rooms have air conditioning. For the price and location you will struggle to find better.

Room Tip: I prefer a second floor room so you can watch the birds in the trees in the grounds.

A German travel agent friend told me, "You can do better" when I said I was going to stay here. I asked, "For the price?" and he admitted, "No, probably not, not in Montego Bay." My advice? Pay more, or go elsewhere. It was clean enough, but the paint peeling off the bathroom door, the mediocre food options (there and elsewhere), and the unsettling chemical smell of the pool (not chlorine... bromide?) made me think -- shoot, I came all the way to Jamaica. I might as well have done better. The air conditioner worked great and the staff was marvelously welcoming, earning them 2 circles.

This was selected due to the good ratings on Trip Advisor. It is one of the better priced hotels within about 1 mile from Montego Bay International Airport. There is a security guard present on the property and the grounds are very nicely laid out. I felt as though I was on a small oasis the way the landscape and walkways were spread out. There were two pools and a small hot tub. It all stayed open until 11 p.m. And there is a pool bar that is moderately stocked. The rooms are a '3' on a five point scale by Island standards, on the moderate price end. The beds could use new mattresses, but were clean, as were the bath rooms. The air conditioning kept the room cool and was not loud. There was a small flat screen TV with a fairly large selection of channels ...but who wants to stay in the room in Jamaica. The hotel is located within a few blocks of the "Hip Strip" and a safe walk.

Room Tip: Do not stay in room 15. It is by the street and horns are honking all night long.

Stayed at this motel property and was surprised at the size, price and basic amenities. Rooms were clean, wifi Internet, Pool and garden court yard. House cleaning was great and cleaned room everyday. Front desk was able to setup taxi service, scuba diving, shopping, ATV 4x4, and travel to another city. Front desk was able to get a discount in every activity we wanted to go to and able to hire a driver for a day to take us around everywhere to our hearts content.

Security is 24 hours and is gate protected to limit only hotel guest in and out access. This motel is located 10-15 minute walk to Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville, private beach, public beach, other night clubs and casino. The journey from motel to activities has a lot of shopping.

The journey back and forth allows you save money and able to meet the local people. You are able to see all the shop workers and owners everyday. You start to feel like a local and get to know them. Everyone is very friendly and you might get hooked up with a discount.

Motel has a restaurant on sight but it does not have a private beach. Hotels' like Sandals have their own beach but you are stuck on the hotel site. The ability to go to a Private beach which is not affiliated with a hotel is a lot of fun and you can meet a lot of people. Public beach is no that pretty but its not as nicely up kept.

If you looking for an affordable place to stay, safe and secure. Not wanting to spend your whole vacation stuck in a hotel all day. Then this motel is for you. If you want to explore the city and all the great things it has to offer this is the motel for you.

It is a quick ride back to the airport from this motel so you don't have to worry about being late.

I got to MBJ Oct. 5th got a cab to Toby´s Resort paid him $12 he wanted $15 though. It's only 1 mile from the airport. Once i arrived the security guard came and greeted me with a smile unloaded my luggage and took me inside to check in. The young lady was greeted me with a smile checked me and welcomed me, told me a little about the resort and then security guard took me to my room. The room was cold and spotless. I heard the traffic from the patio and asked to be switched they did with no problem. He told me welcome and left. The resort wasnt packed at all. Very quiet and relaxing. I enjoyed my breakfast, lunch & dinner each time i ate. The staff made my stay very welcoming and i felt right at home the manager of the workers should be very proud of them and the great service they give to the customers that visit the resort. I will return to the resort again & again.....High 5 to Shane, Kevin, Steph, Suzett, Mikkaile, Ms. Icyline, Lisa, Sheldon, Chad, Reynaldo, Oshane, Shueucio, Mosha & Ms. Cloves. If a name isnt on the list i just didnt run into you or stop you for something, but the whole staff was great. Thank You All, Ramona
