Super friendly and hospitable Pauline runs this lovely Irie inn. It’s wonderfully clean has hot water and clean sheets. Pauline can also have breakfast delivered in the morning. It’s a great place to stay and the owner is a lovely boy…hihi don’t miss this super interesting stop and it’s close to clubs you can just walk home to your lodgings and in walking distance from Hussain Bolt restaurant, local maket, food stop- hot food and a wonderful free beach …wow it’s lovely and very near the airport. Pauline can send airport pickup for you. At Montego bay Airport. We loved our stay there. The hospitality is unbeatable ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏโญ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I stayed in Room #1. The Irie Inn was great! Free AC and free high-speed internet. TV with Netflix, fridge, and microwave all included in the base price. Definitely the best value in the most walkable part of town. Comfortable beds and pillows, clean sheets, and probably the coldest AC in MoBay! (My room, #1, got down to 66 degrees f/19 degrees c in no time. I had to shut the ac off even with heat indexes over 100f/38c outside). The host, Pauline, is an absolute gem and will have your room spotless before you arrive. I came a little early and she was scrubbing the floors on her hands and knees! This hotel comes with security and a nighttime gate, which is nice since it is such a busy part of town. ๐Ÿ‘‰A cab should be $15 from the airport, though it’s only a 30-40 minute walk if you insist. ๐Ÿ‘‰This is one of the closest hotels to Margaritaville. It’s the US equivalent of a “two block walk.” ๐Ÿ‘‰Just in case, bring earplugs. I did not need mine as the club noise was not as loud as I expected, but know that you will hear club noise from 9 pm to 6 am and you might need earplugs to sleep. ๐Ÿ‘‰There is a free, perfectly swimmable beach directly across the street. ๐Ÿ‘‰Doctor’s Cave beach, paid entry, is a $5 cab ride or 10 minute walk down the street past Margaritaville. You can snorkel in that beach, too, so bring goggles! ๐Ÿ‘‰The best cheap food I had on my stay: the Sunset Bar and Grill next door (meal, drink, and dessert for just 1300 JMD), and the 24 hr Irie House just past Doctor’s Cave Beach with the best fried chicken you’ll ever have for only 1200 JMD. ๐Ÿ‘‰Go to Harmony Beach Park and parasail! It’s only $75! The Irie Inn is a fantastic value for the budget-conscious traveller.

Great stay! Cheapest private room in the area and close to everything. 3-minute walk to Margaritaville, the Pork Pit, and other bars and restaurants. 2-minute from The Pelican Grill restaurant. It’s located right off Jimmy Cliff Blvd. Niko was also a great host! Will stay again next time.

Renee Smith

Been staying here since 2003. In Mobay I will never stay anywhere else. I love this place more than home. It is very convenient place to stay on the hip strip in the heart of everything. This is my home away from home. Never any worries. Pauline is a more than wonderful person. Always smiling making sure your stay is peaceful. I always advise people to stay here. Never have to worry about crowds of people, never have to worry about safety. This place is a Diamond in the rough. Nick will see you soon! You can never go wrong with this place, I promise you that. 2003 to 2017. I highly recommend this place and guarantee you will return after staying once! Love and miss you all!!
