My wife and I stayed here on our first night on the island. We arrived from the airport close to 10 p.m. and were looking for an affordable place to stay close to Phillipsburg before heading to the French side of the island for the remainder of our stay. At $90 for a one-night pitstop it was more than adequate.... More

Spent two nights Jan.8-9...clean property, good restaurant but...stone and concrete. Many steep steps all around the property, no way to avoid it. If you have any mobility issues this is not the property for you. There are also steep steps inside the rooms. The balcony had two wooden lounge chairs that were both broken, old and brittle wood. The property... More

We stayed at L'Esperance Hotel for 5 nights Dec 22 to 26, 2014 before moving to a time share resort. A great place to stay. The staff were most friendly and cooperative. The 1 BR unit was clean and well equipped for our stay. As noted in other reviews, the hotel is not on a beach, rather located in a... More

A nice little hotel which is kept very clean. Good value if you just want a place to sleep and maybe enjoy the pool. Nice staff and convenient to all points on the island. We rented the 2 bedroom suite and it was nice and roomy with a kitchenette and balcony. Not the greatest area on the island but for... More

We spent two days at L'Esperance hotel in advance of boarding a cruise ship in Phillipsburg. The price was very good for St. Maarten and only a 10 minute taxi ride to either the airport or cruise ship dock. Taxi costs varied from $ 10-25 depending on distance and luggage. The room we had on the top floor facing the... More

The room was very spatious and clean. WiFi didn't work so well. Had a full kitchen. The location is a bit odd and not in a tourist area. Felt uncomfortable walking there at night and even during the day. Was a trek to get to anything touristy. Got harassed by a lot of men on my walk I to Philipsburg.... More

I stayed here one night from 27-28DEC2014 and was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean, the staff were very nice, and there was even a mini-kitchen in the room, which I had not expected. The air conditioning was good, there is parking, and I would say the hotel provides good value. My only complaints would be that the wi-fi... More

We stayed at the L'esperance Hotel for only one night (extending a rental unit week elsewhere on the island). The Hotel was surprisingly clean, well kept, friendly, and picturesque...despite being located in what was otherwise an impoverished, lower-income residential neighborhood. Not really close to the beach (although you are never that far on St. Maarten), but it worked well for... More
