If you are looking for luxury this is not the place for you. It is targeted at those with a limited budget, and they fill this niche very well. The Inn is clean, safe and close to everything in St Lawrence Gap. The staff is super friendly and very responsive to questions and concerns. I stayed here for 9 days from February 3-12, and the only complaint I have is that a rooster woke me up each and every morning at 4.30 with its crowing. The management apologized for this, and assured me that steps have been taken to fix this problem. I recommend this place if you are on a limited budget.
