Utterly disappointing

I've traveled around the world, and have stayed in several hotels. This by far is the worst experience that I have ever encountered. My room had to be changed twice. The first room had no A/C on humid, 98 degree days and there were roaches. The mattresses were lumpy and linens had someone else's hair on them. We had to stay in the room because there was no PM receptionist to transfer us. The next day, they provided us a new room with A/C, but that was as good as it got. The rooms both had molded ceilings and showers, filthy unclean showers, moldy and stained carpeting, roaches and ants, doors that were previously broken into and not fixed, grimy light switches and on, and on. The ONLY great thing about the hotel was that it was right on the boardwalk and the employees were accommodating.

I was returning to my island of birth for the first time in 15 years. This hotel provided the luxury, location, and sea views that made this trip extra special. My Mother lived just blocks away, and was able to meet me every morning.

could have been better

I use this hotel because of the price and the fact that rooms had a microwave. Since I am working, I don't eat at regular hours. Having a little fridge and a microwave is perfect for my business trip. This time I did not have a microwave in the room but I had to change room for staying an extra night although I had notified it during check in.

Celebrate daughter's Birthday

The location of this hotel was excellent, the food was good. This hotel is old so this mean a deep cleaning should be done in the rooms. When you enter to the room bad smell and mattress were old. There were three construction panel underneath the bed. First day we open the room door and there was a giant roacher which I kill with my shoe. I left it in one corner of the room to see if next day maid will notice. I stay four days and when I left the roacher still in the same place. The location was great, the food but room cleaning FFFFF.

Perfect for people performing some work on St Croix

The fact that rooms have a little fridge and microwave is perfect specially if you are doing some work on the Island; you can warm your leftovers and save some money

Great Location

Hotel is in a perfect location, despite being old hotel with imperfections it's a good location if you don't want to get a cab to be near several restaurants or the tours for BUCK ISLAND....you wake up and you're in the boardwalk and can have your breakfast in front of the water....can't get any better than that.

Solid Stay

The hotel is conveniently located and offered just what i needed for a quick business trip. It was on the board walk and right near the "action" in St. X. It had free wireless and free parking. the room was clean though not lavish.I'd stay there again.

Clean, friendly, basic

Clean and nicely furnished rooms. Older style, but everything works. (Superior room, harbour view) Front desk service was excellent, helpful and friendly. Restaurant has great food but give yourself plenty of time as the service isn't great. Decent value for money and right on the boardwalk in the centre of Christiansted.
