Staying in USVI for work. This is a good hotel - not a modern luxury hotel but clean and nice, and in a great location. What lifts it above are the staff, who are really customer oriented and helpful. Special shout-out to Tara who truly went above and beyond when I had a laundry issue. Definitely recommend.

I think that major renovations are in the works. Right now it is a clean, quiet, pleasant older hotel on a great location near the wharf, the fort, many restaurants. The staff is helpful and nice; the rooms and pool area are spotless. Furnishings are very basic but everything works and rooms were available and affordable!

The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect. Our room was big, and from the balcony fantastic views to the sea, the harbour and Christiansted Castle. Rooms and decor are fairly basic. Service is basic too, but very friendly. Easy access to historical sites, beach, and shopping. No on site restaurant, but lots 1 to 5 min walk away. The price is reasonable, so for a 2 -5 day stay on St Croix it is very recommendable. For a longer stay I would prefer a full service hotel.

You are in middle of it all: City center, harbor life, tourism, historic buildings - and it is not noisy at all! From the balcony of rooms with sea view you can enjoy the view over the blue bay and the old Danish fort. The hotel is a bit basic, but okay: Quite big rooms, big beds, nice bathroom, everything clean. A small pool, a small dining place in front of the hotel. No private parking - must be found in the nearby streets.

I had a nice visit to ST Croix. My room was big and very clean. Of course like most of ST Croix this hotel is old fashioned and could use some updates. The staff here were all very pleasant. Right on the boardwalk made it easy to get around town. I would recommend staying here and the price was Great!

I didn't even stay here but was told a couple of days prior to this incident that we were free to stop by and use the facilities. I was sunburnt and needed to change into a tee I bought at one of the stores. Now, I'm a southerner and will greet anyone but this particular day, when I walked in, i could not understand what the girl said to me. She proceeds to chew out my husband standing outside telling me I need manners and that her manager wants to know who walked in. That so called "manager" refused to walk out herself. If it's such a problem, why were we told we could? If it's such an issue, why is there no sign? The pool area and restrooms are so nasty, that was enough for me to never stay here. I can only imagine what the rooms look like.

Let me say, I have low standards. I have been living in the Caribbean for years and have grown used to the ways that hotels handle the often less than optimum circumstances that surround them. This was an especially bad experience. When we arrived in St. Croix, we went out for dinner and drinks with friends. One friend had too much to drink and we invited her to stay with us instead of driving unsafe. When we requested a cot (listed as free in the description) we were told that although they had cots, no one was available to bring one. When I alternatively asked for an extra set of sheets, was also told no. Then subsequently insulted because we had been drinking. Told that I shouldn't be drinking, should "drink some jesus". Wifi was terrible, kicked you off every few minutes. We booked the room for three, only had enough towels for two. No beach towels provided. Hotel is on cistern, that's fine, but no free water, even though it is advertised as free bottled water. Elevator broken. Ice is in a cooler on second floor. Coffee maker but no coffee provided. Towels we did have smelled like old cilantro. The hot water took at least ten minutes to heat up.The advertised "premium channels" = ONE. Fan ridiculously noisy. further more, the free parking is where ever you can find it in Christiansted, which is hard, prepare to walk.

This is very old hotel that needs a lot of upgrades. Our room was small as was the bathroom. The bathroom door was hard to close. My husband tried to turn on the light in the middle of the room; it was frightening to see how it worked. He turned it off and we never used it again while we were there. The first day, the bed was not made but we were left with coffee for the next morning. We locked ourselves out of the room as we were not informed that we should not press the button on the door knob to lock to room which pushed the pin out and prevented us from unlocking the door. The second day no coffee was left in the room. No issues on the third day. The fourth day we had no coffee. The fifth day everything was done as it should. Once again on the sixth day we had no coffee. Overall the room was clean, but it became frustrating to constantly have to ask for coffee. WiFi does not work in the room; on occasion it worked temporarily while at the pool. There is an elevator however it is not operational. Fortunately, my husband traveled with me; he got my suitcase up the 6 flights of stairs to the third floor. We had a corner room with a view of the harbor. This was definitely a positive. We were not bothered by street noise except for one early morning with a garbage truck picking garbage cans. The roosters were present every morning; as we are early risers we were already up by the time they started performing. We liked the proximity of the hotel to the boardwalk.

My room was on the second floor. No elevator but the girl at the front desk carried my suitcase up. I was there 5 days. The first morning there was a wonderful view of the harbor right across the walkway. A small boat brings people to & from Protestant Cay and this boat landed right in front of me. The room was large, but old. The light switch for the bathroom was held in place with scotch tape. Constant problem with mosquitos, one day when I returned to room in middle of day I discovered why. The maid was mopping the floor in another room and had the room door and the sliding glass door open to dry the floor. That let the mosquitos in. Maid did a very good job at keeping room clean - no dirt anywhere, but room was old. There was no coke machine. The TV was off for two days, but that was the fault of the cable company (Innovative). New to me boardwalk along harbor goes from hotel west to sea plane. Many restaurants and bars on this well lit walkway. Felt very safe. Parking for my rent car was on the street and sometimes you had to be a couple of blocks away. I was there November 29th through December 6. The staff was very friendly, it is just a very old hotel that needs moderating.

This is a perfect in-town hotel. Great location if you want to be in town. A short ferry ride to Hotel on the Cay for the beach. Great restaurants and shopping all outside your door. The rooms are a little "tired". Some have been renovated, but not all yet.
