Excellent Hotel for it's Category
Posted Jul 7, 2016 on Hotels
The Inn at 87 is a great choice for a mid-range, budget hotel where you accept fewer amenities to get a good price. It is well maintained, clean, comfortable and very friendly.
The staff is excellent. They are attentive and always available. Unlike many hotels in this category, the desk is staffed 24 hours.
The rooms are not too small, quite clean and Spartan but comfortable. The WiFi is strong and reliable, the TVs are quite adequate and the beds are comfortable.
The hotel is quite safe with barred windows and a 24 hour buzzer on the door to manage who enters. I never had to wait to get in at any time. The neighborhood is generally safe, even after dark.
They offer coffee and tea in the morning and have a kitchen to prepare fresh breakfasts for purchase.
The area is nice with plenty of restaurants, local bars, a grocery store, coffee shops other services. It is a short walk to the large Queen's Park where you can have a morning or evening stroll or jog with the many locals doing their fitness regimens. It is also a comfortable walk to the zoo and botanical gardens. The walk to downtown Port of Spain is not bad either at 15 to 20 minutes.
Over all, I definitely recommend this hotel as a great option for a budget hotel with minimal frills. It was perfect for my two night stay and I will stay there again when in Port of Spain.
