Not a upscale hotel. Not close to beach. Please do not choose to stay if your a single female. Many beggers in lobby of hotel and outside. Staff are all nice. Septic odor/plumbing system needs upgrade.

Thank you for taking time out to inform us about your stay at the Downtown Hotel! Firstly, we are 5 minutes away from the nearest beach and central to everything from bakeries, supermarkets, banks, church , diamond waterfalls and so on. Many of our guests love staying at the Downtown Hotel because it is close to everything! Secondly, since our hotel is secluded at the top of the building with 24/7 security personnel, there is no way that vagrants or beggars are allowed on our property. We have never had any complaints from single travelers or those traveling with others due to our 24/7 security surveillance and security personnel, not to mention the town of Soufriere is relatively safe. Unfortunately we do not have control over beggars on the street so we advise our guests to simply refuse any request for money.
