The Embassy Hotel is across the parking lot from the international airport. John and Judy run the place and are wonderful people. You can sit in the lobby and listen to interesting stories from the eclectic group, some who stay there long term.
The place is simple, clean and quiet. They had one of their guys drive us into town for a great dinner and he waited while we ate and took us back; all this for the price of a taxi one-way. Needless to say we tipped him nicely. I think the name of the place we ate was “Jack's”. John called and made the reservations and we had the most leisurely European type dinner you can imagine. We felt completely safe doing it this way.
I've stayed there 3 times, the first being the time we were evacuated from A/C for Mitch. I just checked their web page http://www.adventuresinbelize.com/acc-embassy1.htm
Prices range from $49 - $89 per night.
