Ocean Terrace Inn

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great view, great staff, room was nice; but needs an ice maker on floors so one doesn't have to walk all the way to the restaurant to get ice.

Check in took way tooooo long. I had made a reservation only an hour previously but check in still should not have taken 30 minutes. I was exhausted and standing at reception for that long was killing me. I did receive a nice welcome drink and a cold towel...but still, check in time needs to be quick. Hotel has a nice view over the bay. The room, while small, was clean and the AC was cold. The pool was nice and empty in the morning.

Great customer service!!! I have no complaints. Price was reasonable.

Stayed at OTI as an alternative spot to Frigate Bay. Very much met our expectations as an alternative, but, still work to do at OTI. Had two rooms. One was pretty clean and nice, but, the other had big needs. Staff seemed somewhat inattentive. Not resentful, but, not entirely engaged. Friendly, but, slow to respond. Quite expensive based on what you got.

Arrived late and room was ready, nice touch filling ice bucket in fridge. Lots of steps to restaurant and other areas of hotel, ok unless not physically fit. ac was on when we arrived, many hotels leave off and you have to endure a few hours till room cools down, thank you for the ac. Nice room for price and friendly staff.

My time at Ocean Terrace Inn was etremely pleasant, the staff was very kind and attentive, i really enjoyed my stay. If there was one unpleasant moment, it was the miscommunication about the use of the phone in my room. On Aug 6 i called the front desk to inquire about the cost of local phone calls, i was informed by a staff member that any local phone call would cost me 21 cents per minute. On Aug 12 when it was time to checkout i was told that local phone calls did not include cell phones although they have the same area code and that i was being charged $2. 48 cents per minute, when i expressed my disappointment and tried to split the difference i was not accommodated. It cost me $96.51 which i did not appreciate and for that reason alone i will never book a stay at Ocean Terrace Inn again. Thank you for your concern.

First time in St Kitts for Music Festival. The hotel location were a great advantage as we did not rent a car the first day ; we were at 5' walking distance from Basseterre. Great view from our room but no Wifi coverage (only at the frontdesk). We had a bit of water on the floor due to A/C condensation. Good restaurant nearby for dinner.

I stay for two nights and the room was ok but need some cleaning. No bad for few days.

Quick weekend trip to explore the island and plan a bigger adventure. The OTI has a beautiful location, away from the beach, with commanding views of Basseterre and the harbor. The hotel is dated (older 60's era premium hotel, with 90's decor), but the property was clean, comfortable and very quiet. Not a nightlife hotspot, but a great value for the money. If you want premium, go to the Marriott. The OTI is a great place to come back to at night, sleep quietly and relax. I would definitely recommend it if you want a peaceful and relaxing setting.

great bar at Fisherman's Wharf

The hotel was close enough to downtown that you could walk and Fisherman's Wharf is right in back of the hotel. The staff were very accomodating and the food in the restaurant was good and cooked just right.

I independently set out to discovered the island; I felt safe and the hotel staff was friendly; they eagerly provided all the help I needed....OTI a wonderful place.....

Hotel is much improved from when I stayed there years ago...The room inside was very clean and the air conditioner worked well...Very peaceful environment. Staff was helpful and friendly....I would stay there again because of the home away from home feeling...Love the Sunday Brunch a must have ..
