“Good for overnight stay by the Airport”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We stayed overnight at Carter's when our onward Liat flight was cancelled. Our room was basic, but very clean and adequately furnished, with a small kitchenette. The air conditioning worked well, the shower pressure less so. There is no restaurant, so if you arrive wanting dinner you are out of luck, though the manager offered to drive us to a nearby restaurant. Carter's is close to the runway, so you will hear the few night landings/takeoffs. The Guesthouse offers a free pick up and drop off at the airport which we appreciated. The service was fine, we were politely greeted and swiftly checked in by Miss Carter, someone carried our bags to our room, our wake up call happened at the appointed time and the driver was ready to take us to the airport at the very early hour agreed the night before. All for US$70 for the pair of us in high season.

Our stay at Carter's guest house was very unpleasant. The owner is an unfriendly grumpy man. The rooms are over a grocery store and you can hear the customers very early in the morning. And, it is right next to the airport, so you get the noise from the planes arriving and leaving. Please find somewhere else to stay.

I had to overnight in Antigua to connect with an early morning flight the next day and this Guest House was recommended to me by a LIAT employee in Antigua. On arrival at the V C Bird airport I made a call to the Guest House and about eight to ten minutes later, someone was there to pick me up. The check-in process was a breeze. The restaurant was already closed, but "the very tired young lady" in the office opened the shop and I was able to get a bottle of water and a vita malt (at 11:15 pm). Knowing that I would have been in very late, I had brought along a sandwich. My bags were taken upstairs to my room by one of the workers; I only had to tote them down early in the morning. The Guest House is situated on a busy main road and very close to the airport (you can actually see a part of the runway) but sleeping was not a problem. The room was very clean and well equipped for the price of $ 70. USD per night. A large fridge, stove, microwave, necessary cooking utensil, television, two twin beds, clothes closet, iron and ironing board, a large bathroom and air condition were beyond my expectation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative was that there was no television reception in my room. I guess this was due to the fact that cable service is not properly installed. Also wifi connection is not available in the interior of certain rooms, but is available if you go onto the porch/patio. All in all, a great place that offers complimentary pick up and drop off to the airport.Highly recommended.

We have stayed at Carter's on several occasions en route from Antigua to Montserrat. The accommodation is very clean, the staff are friendly and can collect you and return you to the airport free. If you want to hire a room for the day (if your flight is not until evening) then you can do this too. They have a small restaurant which serves delicious food. We have always found them most helpful. Very near airport, but we had no trouble sleeping.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage request a ground floor room, otherwise you will be hauling it up the st...

Traveling between islands decided to stay here , the lady in the office was very unfriendly, she wouldn't help me find anything , I needed to stay a hour for late check out all she said was check out is 12 and left me standing alone in the office. so i had to go to the airport 4 hours before my flight.
This place is far away from anything . There are no buses after 6 pm and the restaurant closes early so you have no beverages ice ect if you do not plan ahead . Would not recommend this to anyone!

Room Tip: Find a place closer to the harbor

We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations at Carters. The rooms are like a motel setting with your own large kitchen area/ living room, equipt with propane stove and a large fridge.The rooms are very clean, air conditioned and have windows with screens. You get picked up at the airport which is a 5 minute ride and delivered to the airport at no charge. There is a restaurant on the property which has an excellent cook. It is not opened late in the evening, but is a great place to eat lunch and dinners. Breakfast is also available with some notice. Although it is located on a busy road and within sight of the airport runways it was quiet. This is more suited to the adult traveller looking for short term accommodations, or a home base for travelling the island as it is in a central location. You can rent vehicles from this location or have Mr. Lesroy Carter taxi you to wherever you would like to go. This is a family run business with everyone being very nice and helpful to any needs you might require. This not a resort setting, so children would be bored. I will definately stay here again when having to make connecting flights to other islands.
