After my first place(separate review) fell thru, I ended up here. It is right next to a casino but did not have any trouble with noise. There is a Mikkie d's within 2 min walk but does not open until 10am so no breakfast. There were other restaurants around it and on the boardwalk. within a 5 min walk they... More

First time the reviews lead us astray. I'll start with the positives: room with sea view, generous breakfast for $7. Now the negatives: our reservation "didn't exist" until I showed the email confirmation received 2 days earlier. Greeter went up to verify requested room was in order, spray can in hand, before she gave us the key. She had turned... More

This was my first trip to St. Maarten, alone. Being a lady travelling alone one must be cautious and leave no stone unturned. So prior to my arrival, I had called the hotel on several different occasions to inquire about the electrical, proximity to the beach, travel between the airport and hotel, shopping, restaurants, nightlife etc, each and every time...

Spent one night here on return from Dominica. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is easy access to beach/boardwalk which can be busy by day with cruise ship day trippers but beautifully peaceful by evening. Great place for people-watching. Older room but sufficient. Clean and quiet. We would stay here again.

Good location, right next to the beach/boardwalk - although not all of the rooms technically have a "sea view". The room was acceptable for what I paid. Disappointed that they didn't offer any food options, however, as the whole town basically shuts down at 6pm when the cruiseliners leave. In all, it was a good place to stay, although I... More

Was at the place for 15 min before checking out, this is far from what the pictures show. Plus, they could not find one of the reservation that had already been paid for weeks before arriving in St. Maarten, they had one but not mine. Even after showing the confirmation e-mail from Orbits, they still didn't believe it, but let... More

This is my stuck in St Martin waiting for car part to arrive that is late or missed last ferry home place. They offer good rates for West Indian residents and decent small old rooms, but clean. Halls can resonate with late arrivals, but only once was that an issue. Breakfast for $5 is a great deal and such nice... More

This is a nice very basic hotel, but no frills. Location is right on the boardwalk and beach. We did not hear the attached casino on a Saturday night. Free wi-fi and many American tv channels. If you don't plan to be in your room and just need a place to sleep, this is a good bargain compared to the... More

I booked through Hotels.com. I booked an ocean front and got a room with barely a view of the ocean. The room was clean, but noisy throughout the night. The room just had a bed, bathroom & desk. The positive was that there was free wifi. I paid alot of money for 3 days incredibly disappointed.

If you are interested in being in the heart of Phillipsburg Boardwalk and Front Street at a reasoable price this is the hotel for you. It is clean with friendly staff who make an effort to refer to you by name. The room is checked as you arrive to ensure it ready and smells fresh. It has lovely views of... More
