Nice place to spend a few days

Posted Feb 22, 2014
I have been to Belize before and just passed the City by on my way to the islands. This trip I wanted to see some of the interior. I was looking for an inexpensive hotel for 3 days and Bachelor Inn fit the bill. When I arrived, I was a bit unnerved by the neighborhood and the remoteness of the hotel. It is in Belize suburbia and not close to any thing. I warmed to the management who was always willing to help and upgraded me to a two bedroom with full kitchen and living room at no charge. By the second day I was jogging into town along the water front and ordering food from the local joints. I never once felt threatened, even at night. Cab to the ferry terminal was $5 and the bus comes by every 20 minutes for fifty cents to town. Bottom line... If the locals scare you stay in the tourist district. If not, it's a cheap, comfortable place to stay.

You get what you pay for

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: The roof and the hotel owner was friendly enough.
Cons: EVERYTHING could be improved.
Location: Not very close to anything fun or interesting to do. The small convenience stand downstairs was nice and had cheap drinks.
We only stayed here our last night in Belize so we could be close to the airport. Hotel is located in sort of a crappy section of Belize City, in the middle of a pretty loud neighborhood. Hotel owner was very nice and showed us to our room and told us to go and see the roof (great view!). This is pretty much the end of what is good about the hotel. When we got to the room the door was PADLOCKED (as were all of the other rooms in the hotel) and it looked like a low rent apartment. The beds were made up with sheets you'd find at your own house with no blankets only a top sheet. When we first arrived at the hotel the beds were missing 1 pillow each. A random hotel worker was sent with replacements (along with toilet paper and 3 bottles of electric green soap). The shower had the flimsiest curtain I've ever seen and no water pressure, I literally bathed under a trickle of warm water. The "kitchenette" was a gas hotplate complete with a propane tank in the room. Everything was very run down. The definite icing on the cake was the Mormon missionaries who knocked on our door the morning we left. For a one night stay the hotel was decent enough, I guess, but I was glad when we left. I would not return here.

"Yes, I DO have a reservation."

Posted Jan 19, 2014
Pros: Finally getting into the room.
Cons: Service?
Location: Get to the airport.
Talk about hostility! After a day of traveling, I could not remember offhand whether I had gotten my reservation via expedia--and I was treated like a VILLAIN for this. "You forget website, I forget reservation" was the response. When we asked for the wireless password so I could check my e-mail to confirm, we were ignored. Eventually she navigated her way through her email to find my reservation, then gave us a room with more beds than we needed. Yuck. The decent amenities, I could deal with, but to be treated like a criminal? When I had already paid for my reservation? This was unacceptable.

Close to municipal airport for transfer

Posted Jan 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Good, cheap and clean room. We stayed here to catch our flight the next day at the municipal airport. Really close. Had AC and fan, only wish there was more hot water for a shower after travelling all day. Very friendly staff

Last option hotel.

Posted Jan 9, 2014
Pros: Nothing, really.
Location: Just go to the islands or other sights as soon as possible.
Hotel is too far away from city center (which btw is pretty awful, too).

Hmmm

Posted Sep 14, 2013
I would not return as this hotel was not within walking distance to eateries or other needs. I was surprised by the fact that the door was padlocked from the outside when not in use and grateful for the 3 deadbolts from the inside. Once inside felt safe, but so much outside of room.

Greeting from the Bachelor Inn guest house. It is unpleasant to hear of your stay. Here we use padlocks as a work system for our house keepers as there are many rooms and padlocks cause less confusion. However we have 24 hour security system. We cannot change the environment we are located in. Sincere Apologies!

Nice hotel for people on a tight budget

Posted Aug 30, 2013
Our stay at the Bachelor Inn was overall good for the price we paid. I knew it wasn't going to be fancy, but I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. A sitting area, sleeping area, bathroom, and kitchen area ( no stove ). The view was nice but could have been better. The hotel does have a roof you can walk on or even lounge on. It has a good view of the Caribbean Sea as well as the city. Some negative things about the hotel were the street it was on. Very local, but poverty is present and makes it look dirty. The fridge did not smell very pleasant and a shower curtain was missing. The room had a fully functioning air conditioning unit and TV as well. Unfortunately there were no luxuries such as a pool or even meals to eat.

The Clerk was clueless.

Posted Aug 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
The clerk was clueless and couldn't even find our reservation. She had sweat running down her entire body. She promised our room had air and it did. It took a while to cool it down though. The other guests at the hotel gave us more info than the clerk did. There were no brochures like you normally find at hotels as to the activities or taxi and bus services. The outside of the door was locked with a padilock. On the inside there were at least 7 different forms of locks which only 2 work. There is a small store nearby that has nothing in it. No place to eat in the area. The room was clean but would still suggest staying in a different location. If the guests hadn't given us some pointers about the bus service it could have been a nightmare.
