Yesterday, from the airport to to Sea View Hotel, I tried to checked in but, unfortunately, the hotel was closed for operation. I ended up walking with my luggage looking for a hotel nearby. I ended up staying at Horizon View. Otbitz should try to coordinate in the future with your hotel partners especially at this time of pandemic.

Staff was helpful and friendly except for waitress at breakfast. She was not in the cafe, but in a room, talking to others or on her phone. She hid the coffee in the room and took too long to serve it. Good coffee, though. Staff helpful with directions and carrying bags up steps. No toiletries except for soap - no problem - cheap and good location.

I liked this hotel is right on the beach. Gated from beach and locked at night. Room itself is old and kind of shabby, a little dirty. Wifi free in the lobby but did not work properly during our stay. Only here one night so all in all was ok for one day.

The staff were very helpful. We couldn’t share a breakfast table with our friends. My bed mattress was uncomfortable.

Right on the beach, great view. The AC works (that's a big deal) and everything else works too. The soap, sheets, etc are a little on the low-budget side. But for a bargain hotel on the beach, it's good.

Squeaky bed, too much noise in early morning among cleaning staff. Other than that, front staff was very pleasant.

The property was across the board walk and beach. Very convenient.

Room was clean but first room had no water pressure from shower and no hot water, second room improved but at night you could hear the microphone from the casino like it was in the lobby. Just bar of soap and with tile floors any talking early in the morning means you will not be able to sleep in. Room safe was extra money and it is so small it will not hold much plus they could not get it to work and second room had no safe at all. Condition of the courtyard was poor and altho there were lounge chairs it was not inviting. Unless they improve I will stay elsewhere next time.

Great location in Phillipsburg. The bar hops at night with a great band. The island is not totally back from the Hurricane but it has made great progress.

Very nice for an inexpensive room. On the beach boardwalk . Very convenient to everything.

This hotel is right on the boardwalk. The staff was very nice and friendly. It can get ruckus and rowdy at night especially if you're on the inn side and not the motel side. Staff was happy to accommodate us though to make up for the discomfort.

Cheap hotel, very limited amenities. Staff was very nice and a highlight but they were told they were interacting with us too much and to cut it out. (Not even kidding.) It's upstairs from a casino and right on the strip in Philipsburg. It's loud all day but quiet at night. There's nothing going on at night in Philipsburg so you'll need a cab ride out to the resort areas if you want to party.

The hotel is very clean, the 5 dollar per person breakfast is very good. The staff is friendly. The location is good, although in low season most of the stores are closed or do not open until past 5 pm. There is no parking but many places to park on the street. It's right next to the beach. Two nights we had loud neighbors drinking and shouting, we had to step out and ask them to be quieter. The manager gave us a discount at the end of our stay worth for our next travel to compensate for this (although I do not plan to go back to Sint Maarten, it was a nice gesture on her part). Philipsburg, other then the boardwalk and front street (shopping) is not a pretty place, there is a lot of ''thug'' looking guys walking around, although it appears they wont rob you or anything.

Loved my stay at the old Sea View Beach Hotel in St. Marteen. Room had an epic view, absolute center of the fun boardwalk, great a/c, windows also opened for the warmer sounds of waves crashing.....one after another, after another, after another. Very nice staff too, would be happy to stay again, can't beat the value!
