Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really disappointed with the room. Needs an urgent refurbishment. Stayed 3 nights and beds not made, towels not changed. Shower needs a thorough deep clean. Room faced the motorway so was very noisy. Restaurant and bar was very good. Seemed to have private parties during Christmas.

Deserved 3.5 really, was a great option when flying early. Check in staff very good and staff in the restaurant were amazing, especially Candice. Rooms were functional, comfortable, and the restaurant pool in the centre of the hotel is a feature. Close to the airport is a bonus.

Let me start by firstly saying this was my 10th wedding anniversary and I booked the meals inclusive package, which would have included dinner, breakfast and lunch. Check in is supposed to be 3pm and check out at 12 noon. We arrived at the hotel around 4:30 pm only to be told the room was not quite ready. This took approx 45 minutes to be finished. The room was clean and spacious, however that night was live dj entertainment so the music was very loud and disturbing. Dinner was from an a la carte menu which is very minimal. Choices include a burger, or a salad bowl or a rice bowl. My wife choose a rice bowl which included fried rice, vegetables and chicken, only to be told their is no chicken, so she choose beef. The beef was very chewy and stiff. Breakfast was buffet with a very limited option. Not even a fruit. And lunch was the same boring Ala carte menu from dinner. A lot of flies could be seen in the dining area.The pool is in the middle of the building with very little privacy. Would definitely not recommend this place. Check out was supposed to be 12pm, only to realize around 11:30 when we tried to use the key to enter the room we were unable to do so. That was the icing on the cake. Will certainly not be staying at this place again.

If you are looking for great customer service, cleanliness, peaceful environment, please stay at the Holiday Inn Express that's 2 minutes away from this awful hotel. I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel.

I’m a Trinidadian businessman who lives in Atlanta GA I saw this hotel advertised on social media and I decided to give is a try. As a businessman we always want the best our money can buy. Yes and it did happen that way. I had a wonderful stay the staff was very helpful and courteous they never bothered me in anyway. I never had any negative treatment from anyone of the staff members. Even the security staff was great. I will definitely recommend this hotel to everyone that I know heading to Trinidad weather for business or pleasure. I want to give a very special thanks to everyone for your excellent hospitality and I want to say yes my next stay will definitely be with you guys. Thank you from CEO of Flaveney Enterprise.

My wife and I booked a room at Runway Hotel Piarco for the night of 28th May, it was right after our wedding and we were due to fly out the following morning. We'd arranged for a special 'honeymoon' package for the room we were staying in. We arrived at the hotel at around 2am and upon entering my father in law asked to use the restroom, to which he received a rude response from an employee by the name of Keiron; "well this washroom is not for customers, put down the seat when you done." Understandable, the delivery of this statement was less than friendly but we let it slide. Father in law came out of the washroom and again was rudely accosted by Keiron saying "yuh flush the toilet??" We immediately took offense to this, as we are not apes, we understand cleanliness and hygiene and this is not the way to advise people, especially people out to spend their money in your establishment. Runway Hotel please train your staff on proper customer service etiquette, you can do better. We stayed at another hotel.

I wish I had read the reviews first I would have avoided this stinker . I visited the restaurant and was not a guest in the hotel. What hits you first is an air of indifference, no-one seemed to care that you were there. I thought I was invisible and eventually had to wave for attention. I should have worked out what this indifference meant, made my excuses and left. Strange that it was such a struggle to get any attention as I was the only person i the restaurant and there were lots of staff (which again should have been a clue). I realized the staff were clueless as well as indifferent when I asked for a glass of wine. The barman reached for a bottle which had the dregs of half a glass which had been sitting there he said for 'only' a couple of days. He went to pour it into a glass from a freshly opened bottle. When I said the dregs would taint the fresh wine, this seemed to him to be a bit of truly esoteric knowledge. The food was so awful I left 95% of it. I did eat the shrimps on the top of the dish, so they charged me 50% of the bill. Horrible experience. The only thing the reviews got wrong was on the rudeness of the manager. The reviews claim she is not educated and is rude. Neither of these were true on my visit. That manager has moved on. But the rest of the reviews are true. My boss said it was my fault for going. Why go to a Trinni restaurant and expect good Thai food? She has a point.

This is not an airport hotel but a discotheke. I was on friday and saturday. They told me that there would be music until 12 pm. Sure there was. I think this is not why you go in a hotel nearby the airport. You should have an early flight! It is very noisy. The place were they play the music are surrounded by the rooms. It's terrible The breakfast can be better. Coffee you must make yourself. The machine was not working. Doors of your room are closing bad. Airco's are working but are old and need to be cleaned. The people at the reception are helpfull. No complaints about that. Perhaps I was on the wrong days and is the music only on friday and saturday but I think even then....it's a hotel on 1.8 km from the airport. People come to rest, not to listen to music until 12 pm

We had a long layover at the Port of Spain (Trinidad) airport and decided to book the Runway Hotel near the airport. The most attractive point was the hotel provides a free shuttle from the airport. This was the first fraud of management. We tried to call the hotel from airport, but nobody replied. We had to take a taxi. The hotel management explained that there was an error on the EXPEDIA website and the hotel does not provide this service. The second fraud was the check-in time. On EXPEDIA website check in is at 14.00. The actual check in time is 15.00. If you want to check in earlier, you have to pay $10 per hour. Despite the fact that vacant rooms are available. The biggest disappointment was in the evening. Upon check-in, we signed a paper with the hotel rules and policies. One of these rules was that quiet hours begin at 9.00 p.m. The loud noise, loud music or loud voices are not permitted. The loud music from the restaurant started from 6.00 p.m. until midnight. According to the hotel policies, we asked to turn the music off. The administrator told us that these rules do not apply to the restaurant, although it is located 20 meters from the lobby and named "Runway". He advised us to leave the hotel in the middle of the night if we were not satisfied the hotel. In this case, we would get a refund. Our room was on the third floor, but the music was so loud that even earplugs didn't help. We really regret staying at this hotel. We just want to warn that you will not repeat our mistake.

I booked this hotel for 3 days 2 nights and when I got there for my check in, they checked me into the smallest room you could think of! When I saw the room I was given I immediately went back down to the receptionist and requested that it be changed cause I was not told I’d be getting such a small room for $800 a night! The manage came to speak with me and informed me that they didn’t have any other room available that night and that she would be able to switch my room the next day. I asked for a refund because my spirit was already deterred from even staying there but ofc they have a No Refund Policy so I had to compromise. Let me tell you abit about the room the bed was directly next to the door, it had a desk but no chair, the closet was directly next to the bed and one of the hinges was loose so it couldn’t close properly, the bathroom was extremely small, smallest bathroom I’ve ever seen at a hotel, they don’t offer any kind of small soaps or lotion like you get in other hotels, the tv was stuck in one setting where you couldn’t make it full screen and the walls were paper thin you could hear everything 🔥 The next day however was definitely an improvement, the room switch was absolutely delightful and they even decorated the bed with petals I guess that was as an apology for the first night. This room was way more spacious and held up the quality but as the other room this bathroom was even smaller so that is definitely a design flaw, it also came with a desk hit this one had a chair thank god and the tv was working properly. I must say the customer service of the manager and staff was quite pleasant so it was hard to stay mad and the food was absolutely delicious. I would not be returning to the hotel but I would recommend that if you are staying there ask to see the room that you’ll be getting first so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and don’t take room 44
