“Helpful staff and very clean”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

The 24/7 desk and locked door made me feel totally secure, even if it's in a super safe, walkable neighborhood. Karen, the day clerk during our stay, was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, taxi info, and making arrangements for airport transfer. I really enjoyed her company and appreciated that she went the extra mile for us. Breakfast was good, room was super clean, and the rooftop was great for us smokers. I hope to go back!

Forty Winks was a colorful, clean, and warm oasis conveniently located in the heart of Port of Spain nightlife. Kind of a wonder that it could be both quiet and close to so much activity. Very safe and affordable with breakfast included to boot! Staff are very helpful with providing directions, calling you a taxi, and ensuring your overall stay is enjoyable. Also, the dining area is loaded with books on the history of Trinidad & Tobago as well as helpful tour information and nearby restaurants. Caters to an international clientele. I will definitely be back!

Spent 5 wonderful nights at the inn. The hospitality and customer service were excellent. Pam and her staff were great, knew me by name after day 1, and I have to give extra praise for their daily home-cooked breakfast every morning! It was so convenient to get everywhere and I felt extremely safe, which was important to me as a solo female traveller. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and friendly; I will be booking again my next visit to Trini.

Very clean and comfortable. Felt safe in neighborhood. When I checked in that evening I saw 3 English gents walking in neighborhood. Breakfast was fast. She's a gracious inn-keeper. No elevator, air works and decent channels on cable. Lots of local restaurant within a block or less. Hidden gem. Thanks Pamela ..

We stayed for 3 nights with our two teenage kids. Port of Spain is not luxourios city, so don't expect a president's suite here. What awaits you here, though, is a clean, colorful and authentically "Trini" place with extremely kind and helpful staff that will also help you contact local guides and places you may look for. warm breakfast is simple but fresh from the pot or pan and will be served with a motherly smile. Rooms are nice for one, good for two and still okay for a family of four if you plan to stay for only a few days. We loved it.

I spent one night at the Forty Winks Inn and it was a comfortable and relaxing experience. Karen was very accommodating and made a great breakfast for us. The room was clean and inviting with bright, tropical colours. Would definitely stay again.

Nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Well-priced and in a good neighborhood. There is an amazing Italian restaurant down the street. Cute patio filled with plants. Would definitely recommend this place to travelers that need to decompress.
