As the owner said "nothing fancy, just clean". Trinidad isn't especially cheap anyway, so this place is budget but not fantastically good value. We paid $75 per night for three person private room with private bathroom and AC. Location is near some restaurants and bars. Breakfast not included.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money this is a great place to stay. Helpful staff, nice restaurants close by. I'd come again. You can get to wherever you want to go in Port of Spain from here without too much difficulty and the rent cars as well.

Stayed there one night. The room was simple but sufficient to meet all your needs. A/C being the most important. It was quaint and satisfying. The room was pretty clean and everything else was good for the cheap price in its location. $65 us is what we paid. At night they locked the front gate and had a security guard.... More

I'm giving the Melbourne Inn a five-star rating because it is a great place to stay if you're looking for something in the budget range. I wouldn't give it five stars if I were stacking it against some of the other hotels in Port of Spain, however, I found it to be one of the better budget places I've ever... More

HOW I found this hotel :- I am a world traveler and am always staying in hotels in my travels. For this particular visit, I was staying overnite in Trindad before catching a onward flight to my main destination. This meant a stay of about 12-13 hours. I clearly did not want to spend too much money for 12-13 hours.... More
