Located in Charlotte Amalie, this hotel is within a 10-minute walk of Magic Ice Gallery, Fort Christian, and Emancipation Garden. Blackbeard's Castle is 0.7 mi (1.2 km) away.
Pros: We were using this hotel as a one night stay before we cought our plane next day. It's OK just to stay in for one night I just wish I had tile floors I'm not a big fan of carpets and the beds were not super luxurious a average hotel for a great price. And absolutely within walking distance of shopping.
Pros: The staff is so friendly, there is a restaurant/bar on the premises, and it is easy to get around. Walking is easy and near to other fine dining, and there are taxis available. The shuttle to the beach is great.Cons: No room service. If that had happened, I could have given a higher rating.
Perfect for catching the ferryPros: We landed in St Thomas to catch the ferry the next morning to the BVI. This was right across the street and about a block down from the ferry. Can't get closer to this. Stayed both on our way to BVI and our way back. Had breakfast the first time, small portion and not anything to rave about. Had dinner the way home and it was very nice - good pasta dish. Cons: Upon arrival - late afternoon after 4 pm - we were told that our room wasn't available. We waited a few minutes with a few others in the same situation. Then we asked again and another lady found a different room that was available. Not sure why they made us wait, and would have continued to make us wait.
Cons: We paid over $700 for 3 nights. That is definitely not value for your money. And we did not eat or drink anything there because it was so costly.
Not the same as beforePros: Location for business is good. That's it!Cons: The bathroom was yucky. In fact I did not use it..it was that bad. A/c was noisy. The hotel has again gone to the dogs over the years. I would not ever stay here again being on the main street it's is noisy and I am sure in this day and age they can make the rooms quiter.
Very close to airport, as well as the Road Town FaPros: Proximity Cons: Restaurant space was not nice, food was not great, coffee was week and over priced
Wouldn't stay here again , but it wasn't horriblePros: Has a pool & bar, easy access to safari and shops downtown, a feery is close by. NOT RED HOOK!Cons: I saw a roach in the bathroom, walls were dirty, comforter on bed feels rough. One of the ladies at the front desk gave me the wrong information for the ferry and I had to cancel my excursion in St.John.
Across the Street from Ferry TerminalPros: If you're coming or going to the BVI, hotel is across the street from the ferry terminal making it perfect for crash and dash. Nothing spectacular about the hotel. Clean, quiet, what more do you want? Walking distance to Frenchtown where there are several bars and restaurants.
Cons: Dirty cockroach infected and lousy air conditioning. 200 dollars for this?
Only positive across from ferry dock.
Pros: Location near the ferry dock and seaplane base.Cons: Water front room exceptionally noisy. Saturday booze barge party passed the hotel a 100' off the sea wall until midnight with blaring music that seemed to rattle the Windows. Also the light show all night on the facade of the building made me feel like I was in Vegas. Do not spend the extra $ for water front.
Pros: The location is convenientCons: The wait to check in was ridiculously long. Even though it was 5.00, way past check in time, a lot of people were being told to wait as the rooms weren't ready. Our keys didn't work, or so we thought - turned out the door was so warped we had to literally put our shoulders into it to open the door. The room was very worn generally. Lukewarm water in the shower at best. About an hour after we arrived, the door to the room flew open - another group had been assigned our room and given keys to it. The pool was dirty with black mold and used band aids floating around. The staff were nice enough, but they are battling against impossible odds here. This place probably needs knocking down and rebuilding from the ground up.
decent stay...Pros: great location, pool and bar were niceCons: bathrooms could've been cleaner and we experienced a leak in our ceiling and had to be moved to another room...
