Dont take the tours or offered through receptionPosted Jun 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Inexpensive, The A/C worked. The area seemed safe but residential with loud dogs next door. Cons: The Wi-Fi rarely functioned. Door lock was an interior-type with was no pick-guard. TV reception was bad. Airport shuttle advertised but it’s just a $25 US cab. On my return, I took a local hotel’s shuttle for $15. No room phones + the lobby phone cost $2.50 a minute. WARNING: DON’T TAKE the tours offered through reception. Advertised as ½-day tours including lunch but prices more than double of other companies. When the guide arrived, complained that he doesn’t take single people. I said I’d go elsewhere but he said “no problem” and got me into the van. After a few miles, he complained again and suggested that I take 2 tours to make it worthwhile. I agreed to the zoo and cave-tubing tour. The cave-tubing tour involved me running after the guide as he ran past the other groups during the hike to the caves. I found him by the river. As other tour guides explained the caves, my guide dragged me past all the other group tours. Including the hike, it took about a half hour. The 2nd tour was the zoo: 1 hour. He saw a woman and his friends and charged them for a trip back to Belize. My two 1/2-day tours amounted to 5 hours including travel-time. At the hotel, the price for my tours went from $130 to $180 US because I now had to pay entrance fees to the zoo because he doesn’t normally take one passenger. Arrange for tours at a local hotel or buy a sim card and call yourself.

Decent for the pricePosted Jun 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
My friend and I needed a cheap place to stay before our early flight, and this place did the job. It's not fancy by any means, but it was clean and the air conditioning was lovely. The neighborhood didn't seem to be the greatest, but the hotel staff gave tips on where we could get dinner within walking distance.
for Overnight Stay Before Destinationby A verified traveler
Not badPosted Jun 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Rooms were decorated in an odd shade of orange and lime green, but were clean and comfortable. Staff were generally helpful and friendly. Due to the security situation in Belize City (advised not to go out on foot after dark), the front door was always kept locked. Not a problem, as there should always be a receptionist sat on the desk to unlock it for you. Annoyingly, one evening, the receptionist preferred to be sat in a back room. Twice I waited more than 5 minutes to be let in, banging and shouting at the door. They really need to install a doorbell, or else give customers a key.

Works in a pinch.Posted May 18, 2014
I got just about what I expected, having lived in Belize for 10 years. This hotel provided the bare minimum for the price. Not for a family stay nor for a romantic getaway. For the seasoned single male traveler or adventurous couple looking for an economical place to stay in a pinch. Clean and adequate; staff helpful. I would stay there again if need be.

Breakfast could be better.Posted Apr 18, 2014
Breakfast is very overpriced for what you get. Half a sandwich and a piece of stale pastry with some juice for $12bz a head. I don't think the coffee jug had been cleaned in a few days either. Nice place to stay with clean bedroom and bathroom, friendly and helpful staff.

nice hotelPosted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
I would recommend this hotel. The price was affordable and the room was very clean. The only bad thing was it was hard to find the hotel and neighborhood was a little sketchy.

A traveler's hotel with little to offer but staffPosted Mar 26, 2014
Pros: Price and staff. Good high quality towels. Save.
Cons: Better quality toiletries, tell the truth in the web listings on the various sites. This is a 2.5 star hotel at best but rated on some sites as a 4?
Location: As I mentioned everything is a taxi ride from the hotel. There is a great restaurant called the Riverside Tavern located within walking distance.
The hotel is located in a pretty run down area of town however in all fairness it appears that the area is improving and we found a great restaurant-bar within walking distance. We are travelers not tourists so we intentionally choose lower cost places and have lower expectations but, then again, there are basics. The hotel advertises a restaurant for example. While technically they have a restaurant, it is not open... EVER. The room was clean and plenty big in size. They offer and did have hot water with decent water pressure. The have A/C in the room, however the unit in our room (110) is not big enough to properly do the job. Anywhere you want to go from this hotel is a cab ride away.

It was okPosted Mar 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
we were under the impression that there was a shuttle to the airport. There wasn't. We had to take a taxi which cost 25.00
