Positive Reviews

Affordable rates allow guests to save

Most guests loved the inexpensive yet high quality stay in the Bell Channel Inn. This is convenient, especially for those who are traveling on a tight budget, as the neighboring hotels cost way more than this hotel's rates.

A great dining experience awaits

The Upstairs on the Bay is a place where locals gather to eat because of the great food and quality service they offer. Many guests love the place, not only because it is convenient, but also because it's a place where they can meet other travelers while enjoying delicious cuisine.

Superb Bahamian hospitality!

Negative Reviews

Some rooms are in need of updating

Although the hotel is a favorite among tourists and locals alike, some guests pointed out that it is one of the older establishments in the area. The decor and wallpaper in some rooms are already in need of replacement, and some furniture and facilities are in need of updating.

Location is a bit far from the center

The hotel is located a little far from the Port Lucaya marketplace where most activities and dining establishments are found. It is within a 20-minute from the center - something that is inconvenient especially when guests are walking under the heat of the sun.

Loud air conditioning units

All rooms are fully air-conditioned. However, some guests complained of the air conditioning units being too noisy for them. Thus, many guests suggested updating the air-conditioning units to models that are more recent.
