“Average place, decent location, ok value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

it looks way worse from the outside, a bare concrete block. rooms are a decent size, there's cable TV in the rooms (on tiny tv's) and wifi available (for 5 BZD). pretty good value for the price but it's hardly the sort of hotel you want to hang around in. simply a good place to sleep in a dreary dusty town that only seems to be good for getting elsewhere (notably the trip down the New River to Lamanai ruins)

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. The location is excellent, just a couple of blocks from the main park where there are many restaurants, food stalls, and a bit further down - about another block or 2 is the bus station. The hotel itself is situated above a restaurant. The restaurant is quite quiet and has internet access (at a small fee). We asked for a double room and they showed us a twin with a shared bathroom for 30BZ. We asked to see one with a double bed and they took us up to the top floor. This room was next to a room that had a jacuzzi! The double room had a private bathroom, we preferred this room. It should have been 45BZ but they gave it to us for 35BZ. The room was small but it did the job. The bathroom is the smallest one I have seen. It is very narrow. As you open the door, the shower head is almost behind the door and then you have the toilet directly next to, infact, almost infront of the shower. The sink is in the room next to the bed.
The first time in the bathroom had a giant cockroach, after this we didnt see anymore.
The room had a fan, TV and also provided towels.
The owners are very friendly and will help you book tours if needed. They also have many books on Belize for travellers.

This hotel offers pretty much every travel necessity. It's cheap, and pretty convienient. price ranges from 8 bucks a night for shared bunk beds to some really expensive rooms with private jacuzzi and AC. (don't remember the price)

The hotel is close to the bus station, and there are several restuarants and general stores near by. There are internet /wifi in the hotel with computers in the lobby if you didn't bring your own. they have pretty nice showers. and even jacuzzi if you don't mind paying extra for the more expensive room, There are cable TV featuring HBO's etc. You can make international calls, do laundry, cooking using microwaves, beers, cigarettes. etc

the hotel people will help you book trip to lamanai for free.

I stayed in there with my partner (Kamateblackwiki) for 6 days, The hotel is very clean (which, unfortunately cannot be said about some of the other budget hotel in town that we checked out), it's VERY cheap (16 belize dollars, a night), The rooms are very spartan, but it does come with cable TV and fans, they offer wifi access,and you can rent bikes from them

hotel is owned by a japanese man, he speaks ok english but one of the staff cannot speak English at all and if you need something you might have to draw it on a peice of paper or wait until the owner shows up.

Stayed there a week while me and my partner went exploring in Lamanai, the place was extremely cheap (8 USD per night), and the room was spotless, in fact it even have cleaner than the "5 star" place i stayed in in Cancun. (the hotel exterior was ugly and dirty though, it's not even fully painted). Hotel has very powerful showers, high speed wifi (and computers if you didn't bring a laptop), cable TV, laundry, and it's fairly close to the bus stations, there is also a restaurant and a convenience store next door .

And i should mention, the owner was extremely helpful:.I had an acute asthma attack in the middle of the night, and he drove me and my partner to a private clinic and stayed there with us for several hours. (the public hospital are understaffed and generally offer slower service in emergencies). The owner is also queer friendly.
