Fodor's Expert Review
Inland and about a 5-minute walk from Grace Bay Beach, this two-story inn is perfect for the budget conscious traveler. Rooms are smaller and simpler than the usual Provo offerings, yet comfortable and clean, and decorated with an island feel. Balconies overlook the palm-fringed pool. There is a bar on property, with an economically attractive breakfast offered several mornings per week.

A simple, unadorned lobby opens off the parking lot located in front of the hotel. Guests are immediately greeted by the staff on duty.

Balconies or terraces off of each of the rooms overlook the adequately sized pool, tucked between the hotel and an adjacent restaurant.
