After a 5 day trip to Ocho Rios we stayed at the Altamont overnite before our flight the next day. The Hotel was nice and clean. We had a bus load of people that was dropped off at this hotel. We had to go up to the 2nd floor to get to the lobby. The maintenance guy and the security...

Our room was clean and complete. AC in our room was noisy though. Someone accompanied us to our room and he checked it, so apparently it was up to the hotel's standards. The ladies at the desk and waiting staff in bar and restaurant did a proper job but felt very distant. Maybe this appeals to some people but I...

I visited over the Easter holidays as a last minute getaway with some friends. The rooms were basic and relaxing. Between the air condition, television and comfy bed I only left my room for meals.The staff was very helpful and nice. The food was basic and ok, nothing over the top. On the hip strip so walking distance to most...

I only stayed one night as a little get away from Ochi. I was pleasantly surprised. I called for a room and was checked in within 15 mins after my call. The rooms are SMALL but nicely decorated. I shared a double bed room with two other people. The A/C wasn't the best but the hotel is right across the...

We thank you for choosing us and for taking time out to give us your feedback. We want to let you know that only some of our rooms are small but several more are large, including a 2 bedroom suite. It seems our team may not have adequately exposed you to the available options. Sorry about that. We are constantly...

I'm staying here right now. The air conditioning is on, but it is not producing cool air. The room temperature is about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) which will make it hard to sleep. The room safe doesn't work because the battery is too low. The cable TV is flickering on and off. I called the front desk and...

Thanks for the feedback on your stay with us. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. I investigated your complaints and discovered that we were experiencing a "full house " at the time of your stay so there were no available rooms to which you could be moved. At the same time, we hope you understand the nature of electrical...

Very nice hotel for those who are not into the all inclusive hotels. Hotel is located on the "hip strip" so it is an easy walk to the beaches, restaurants and night life. The hotel is nicely decorated and the room sizes are adequate. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and although sparsely decorated had everything you need....

Thanks for your comments. We apologize for any disturbance you experienced from the road noise, (as the "hip strip" does usually get lively in the nights) and have recently changed the windows (for better sound proofing) in the rooms closest to the road so we hope on your next visit you will be able to tell us about an improved...

A relatively new hotel on the strip in Montego Bay. Clean, comfortable hotel overlooking the sea. A 'quick stop' lodging on your way to the major resorts or Negril. It is nicely decorated and breakfast comes with the nightly rate. Love the offerings of both local fare or continental!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Incidentally the hotel has been around since 2006 so we aren't really new (though we try to keep our product looking fresh).

I saw some pictures online and I was a little concerned whether I would like it and after my trip I can say that I loved it! Its low-key but with extremely friendly and professional staff.
