“Welcomed Bedraggled locals”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We turned up absolutely soaked through to the skin after having driven on a motor bike from Las Galeras. We unfortunately caught the tail end of a tropical storm and were closer to Samana than home so we continued with our journey. When we arrived, we were provided with a good clean room and, best of all, hot showers! (Something we don't have in our house. Bliss! The guys offer cheap, clean accommodation with a smile for everyone!.

There are a few good things about this hotel: it's very close to the whale watching and bus stop, it's relatively clean, and the tv/air-con worked. The not-so-good aspects were: no screens in the windows (although there were no mosquitoes when I was there in Jan), very noisy area and hotel (bathroom opens into hallway at the top, so there is no noise barrier from crying babies, etc.), but the worst was no water. When we checked in, I checked the water and there was at least pressure in the shower, but no hot water. We were told when we wanted hot water, someone would turn it on. Next morning there was barely any water coming out of the shower...a tiny drip down the wall essentially. Went downstairs to ask, and the guy said 'the woman isnt' here' to look after it. Said she'd be in at 8, but it was already past 8. We had to go, so we never did see whether the water actually worked or not. I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't sleep near the entrance, as it's even noisier than the back!

Clean, simple, secure and central; you can't ask more from an in-town hotel in Samana. Anyone traveling through the Samana region who wants to spend one or several nights in Samana's main city will appreciate this spot right in the middle of everything, steps from the pier (and whale watching departures), one short block behind the oceanfront Malecon promenade, close to restaurants, bus stops and services. Staff is friendly and accommodating, everything works including the wifi. Enjoyed it, will return...
