This is an interesting little place. Great staff, friendly and helpful. The property is located in a prime spot right on the beach. The rooms were clean and extremely basic. There was very poor lighting. We stayed for two days prior to our cruise and one day afterwards. We would stay there again. Included in the low rate is an... More

We stayed 22-29Nov14 while I was preaching for a local church's 38th Anniversary revival. From the moment we arrived until we checked out we experienced hospitality that was nothing but was professional, courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely helpful from the entire staff. Our room was cleaned each day with fresh towels and linens and we even had a few surprises... More

We stayed in October of 2014 for one night. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Air conditioner was adequate to the task. Bathroom was dated, if old. Room had a slight odor, as if it had been a smoking room some years ago. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Some vending was available in the lobby. Wifi was available.

Sea View is okay for the "budget" traveller. By day, this looks like a prime location - right on the beach in Phillipsburg. By night, I certainly wouldn't leave the hotel alone. Or with friends. Or at all. I would be more inclined to compare this property to a hostel than to a hotel. We had 3 single beds in... More

This hotel "is what it is", and I don't mean that in a bad way. It is simply a low end hotel. That being said in addition to having the best location in town: The A/C works, the internet works, and the room was clean. If you are a person who uses a hotel room as a place to put... More

I checked in on Sunday 3rd and I was tired from being delayed in Antigua by LIAT as usual. The rooms are big and clean and the staff is wonderful. They attend to u as soon as u request their help, and they do not delay on getting things done. The morning breakfasts were delicious and reasonably priced. I found... More

I stayed there for two nights in late Jun14 whilst visiting St Martin. It fully met the expectations I had from pre travel research. It is on the main street in Philipsburg and backs onto the beach. The rooms clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the front desk staffed form early morning to late night... More

This is a convenient hotel, located in town. Anyone expecting a beach resort will be disappointed. That said, the rooms were very clean and the staff was polite and helpful. The room rate was excellent, the room comfortable. There are no amenities like shampoo or hair dryers, so be warned.
