The Bell Channel Inn overlooks the Bell Channel harbor. The rooms are large enough and clean. The room had an overpowering small of chlorine-based cleaning products. We tried leaving the doors open, but it never dissipated. Their restaurant was just slightly above average. There were no fresh fruits or vegetables on the menu, and most menu items were fried.

Loved this hotel! It's small but verrrrrry personable. Everyone makes you feel welcome--from the events lady to Adom at check-in to our cleaning lady SaraLee (I called her Miss Cake) to the bartenders at the hotel restaurant. Location is good: across Bell Channel from Port Lucaya Marketplace that has restaurants, bars, and entertainment that are an easy 6 block walk....

We spent 5 nights at Bell Channel over the New Year's Eve holiday. Now, let's be clear with one thing: the island is recovering veeeeery slowly from the huge damage of the hurricane. Why "veeeery" and not just "slowly" (or "fast")? I guess it's a Bahamian thing... The hotel is not 5 stars quality (it doesn't claim it, anyway) but...

We are a family that stayed at Bell Channel over the holidays. Genie was so wonderful and was able to provide us with great recommendations for activities and restaurants! All of the staff were very warm and inviting. This is how service should be everywhere! We highly recommend!!

We stayed here on a dive trip and was pleasantly surprised. Everything we had was excellent, all week! Servers are the best, the bar is great as well. It's a local hangout for a reason, family owned and the care for guests really shows. Highly recommended.

Lovely family run hotel. Stayed there recently after hurricane matthew and couldn't have been treated better. They certainly knew how to help two damsels in distress!! Lovely bar upstairs whereby locals and tourists both sit having cold beers (by candle light due to the hurricane). Extremely helpful...even drove us to the airports.

Stayed here from the 10/10/16 to 12/10/16 post Hurricane Matthew, our booking agent gave us no reason to doubt that Memories where we were booked was unaffected, even sending us a welcome text on arrival at NAS. Moving on to arrival at Grand Bahamas the island had suffered greatly and in the main no power, no water, no telephone and...

I was thinking about two places to stay as I was travelling with my 13 y.o daughter and wanted security and friendliness with of course, a clean pool, friendly bar and restaurant. I chose the Bell Channel Inn which was recommended to me by a friend. WOW I don't regret my choice because this place exceeded all of my expectations....

I booked both my flights and his hotel for a little under 700.00 for two. I was under a tight budget as I was mainly visiting Freeport due to a family emergency.
