cheap hotel stay close to airport for last night with early flight

I would not recommend this hotel. No way would I call it 3 stars. I did not feel it was in a very safe location at all. The door looked like it had been pried open a few times. it did not look anything like the pictures. The suite/room was very small although there was a refrig and stove as advertised and a TV with avery gross looking sofa. It has been somewhat remodeled and the bathroom was clean. There were some bugs though. I would definitely not stay there again. For about the same cost- I would choose the Best Western Carib Hotel which is much closer to the airport next time if you only need one or two night.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The Pueblo grocery store is a good choice for food if heading over to ST Johns to stay. Pack a cooler, and take in your rental car over to St Johns. The small grocery stores are much more expensive on St Johns.

Not close to any thing.

The hotel was as advertized, a two star hotel. It was just ok but Deb the lady at the front desk was great. She was very helpful.

Great last night stay!

We booked this room on our return trip from Tortola as we had to fly out of St. Thomas and didn't want to rush of taking the ferry and flight the same day. Deb, tr property manager was wonderful! She upgraded us to a room with a lovely view of downtown Charlotte Amalie. The apt was nicer than we images. Loads of space and a great full kitchen. As an added bonus the property offered a nice breakfast buffet. Perfect for us to grab and go as we headed out! Great property, fantastic view and management. We would assuradely stay there again for our next Virgin Island vacation.

Overpriced and Uncomfortable Stay

This hotel is old and in need of a lot of updating. The room was small and stuffy and the bed was uncomfortable. The air conditioner worked but with a deafening noise and the TV was unable to show a clear picture. The bathroom shower was unable to produce more than 2 minutes of hot water due to its ancient design. Fortunately we only needed to stay for one night as we came in one day early for our timeshare. The best thing about this hotel was the view from the balcony which showed a nice vista of the Charlotte Amalie harbor. Definitely not worth $123 per night.

TrenchTownRock restaurant serves jamaican and vegetarian cuisine and located near the Royal Dane shopping center downtown. Nice ambience and good tasting food for a reasonable price.

Not the perfect spot

Personally we like the east end the best, but this location is right up the street from the airport. The staff is very friendly. Pool is very small. No room service or daily cleaning.

What a view!

We spent a number of hours sitting on the balcony watching the cruise ships and sea planes come into the harbor. It was the perfect location with the most gorgeous view. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location. Deb, the manager, was the epitome of graciousness. She made our visit to St. Thomas even more special with her recommendations and directions.

The price is right

If you looking for a good ,clean, quiet and safe and best of all ECONOMICAL - place to stay with no frills, this is the place for you. The location is fantastic but you NEED A CAR. We really enjoyed our time here. We wanted something economical and clean. This place is perfect for that. For the price we couldn't have asked for more. The staff was friendly. You must know that they don't clean your room out everyday. Its got a kitchen and a balcony (make sure you ask for the balcony.) Its just that -- a place to rest and feel safe. Don't expect entertainment or restaurants. The rooms are a bit outdated it but who cares when you are looking at the most beautiful beaches. I will stay again. I had the best time in St Thomas!!!

Good location for Charlotte Amalie

This is a good place. No, it's not real fancy, but the rooms all have a great view of the harbors and Water and Hassell Islands, and the location is 5 minutes by car from downtown Charlotte Amalie and just a few minutes more if you want to go to Havensight. It's situated up the hill from Charlotte Amalie, and you can get to the north side of the island easily from here. My room was clean, equipped with a kitchenette, and comfortable. Deb the proprietor was very nice as well.

Execellent Local Immerssion

This is not in the tourist district but in a relative safe place on the island. Renting a car is recommended. Property manger Deb is AMAZING! Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Internet is sketchy in the apt. Excellent value and would recommend staying there for a "local" experience!! Relatively close to airport, dining, shopping and beach. Grocery is nearby as well. Pool is nice and there is a grill for use on property.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take safari rides NOT taxis if at all possible. there are stops along the way and will cost you $1 or $2 per person vs 6-15 for a taxi.

hotel not motel

sorry to go off about a hotel when i know that good reviews will help with a bad economy but this is not a 2 star hotel....its a motel.the pics on this site gives a false representation of the true condition of the property.the clerk wasnt present and it was under construction that we deemed not safe.we lost money but stayed with members of our party that was at a resort which saved our vacation.
