We stayed here for three nights last month. Our spacious upstairs room overlooked the channel, which made for a nice view. Too bad the guardrail for the balcony was of a closed design which blocked a lot of the view. A car is a must during your stay here, the only thing within walking distance is besides the restaurant/bar in...

Our stay at the Bell Channel Inn was fantastic because of the staff and the services of Genie, the Excursion Coordinator. She was more than accommodating for all of our needs, no matter how big or small. The hotel's accommodations as a whole was moderate. The rooms could use some upgrading, but overall good for the money. The food at...

Management response:

Dear Jessica B, I sincerely apologize for the condition of your room. The room was actually taken out of commission pending renovations; however a situation arose where a travel agency sent unconfirmed guests to our hotel, and we had no choice but to take the room in use in order to try to accommodate the number of guests sent to...
