This professionally run place may look somewhat unprepossessing from the outside, but features clean rooms with all the modern conveniences, some with impressive second- and third-storey views of the bay that Maumere overlooks.

Rooms are smallish but fit that international bill, with a minimum of style but plenty of efficiency and cleanliness. Small semi-private porches outside of all the rooms with deck chairs help make this, for the money, one of the best choices in Maumere proper. There’s an on-site restaurant with a good breeze coming through, a good free internet connection, and a large pool table adjoining the eating area. They take credit cards, which is a relative rarity for the area. Downstairs, a travel agent can help you book and arrange both flights and overland travel. There’s no beach access, although it’s a short walk to the concrete walkway that goes by the ocean and through town.
