“I am speechless”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

You have no privacy or security at this establishment, with everyone who works there down to the cleaners all up in your business and making inappropriate comments about the guests! When you are in the room, there is no added security of having an inside chain or lock, and no privacy sign if you do not wish to be disturbed or have your room rumaged through if you go out. There are no security cameras on the premises and the door is opened to whoever rings the doorbell day or night. Why should I have to pay top dollars for a hotel room only to have my room key demanded back from me everytime I go out like I am a child? The front desk receptionists doubles as cooks and do not even wash their hands before preparing meals which leaves a lot to be desired. They claim to be a small hotel but charge big hotel prices, so it's is only fair that they provide big hotel service and security! I will refrain from commenting about the eccentric character who resides there.

The Inn at 87 is an intimate, sophisticated Boutique- style establishment with 1 main active entrance and exit. It allows for much better control of traffic and by extension security, than larger hotels with their multiple entrances and anonymous public trekking through the vast public spaces.

We know who is in and who is out, and holding room keys when a guest is off compound is in itself a security measure practiced by many hotels internationally.

The main door is kept locked at all times and opened only when staff have taken sight of the visitor, bearing in mind that no hotel in the world can assess the intent of anyone who enters its space.

This client exposed herself and the Inn to risk, by her admission of various unauthorised persons into her room over the period of her stay. This undesirable exposure was of concern to both the management and staff of the Inn.

Carnival is the busiest period of the year in Trinidad. In the hospitality business, resources are typically strained at this time, and it is not unusual for front desk staff countrywide, to get involved with ensuring that the breakfast service is not compromised.

As testified by the previous writer, our rates reflect the price increase inherent in peak time occupancy, and are the best value for money anywhere in Trinidad at this time. We stand by our price offerings at this and any other time of year.

Valentine is the eccentric ‘character’, who does odd jobs around the Inn, escorts clients around - day or night, and is of priceless benefit to the establishment.

We are very disappointed at this individual’s attempts to malign and sour our reputation at this early stage of our operation, because we expressed concern over her behavior as our guest at the Inn.
