We stayed here for one night while TS Bertha blew through the BVIs. we booked over the phone, never saw a member of staff while we were there - picked the keys up from Quito's Restaurant across the road. Room was huge, sparsely furnished, with very big, clean bed. It was raining hard and the roof leaked in our room... More

The Ole Works Inn is a great place to stay as long as you understand (and are comfortable with) getting what you pay for. It is one of the least expensive accommodations on Cane Garden Bay (which IMO is absolutely the bay to stay on in Tortola) and the Ocean View rooms have an amazing balcony view. But with such...

Was in Tortola for 10 days with a couple of girlfriends and I have to say I had a great time. Stayed at Ole Works Inn. Great location in Cane Garden Bay. It's dated but it definitely served it's purpose, convenience and price. We stayed in Room 111. The ladies Nicole (front desk) and Trisha (housekeeping) were on point. They... More

We stayed one night at the Ole Works Inn (April 3) at the end of our sailing vacation before heading to St. Thomas on the Fast Ferry and home. The setting in Cane Garden Bay is simply spectacular and the views are amazing. Labeled the most beautiful bay on Tortola (righfully so) and maybe one of the most beautiful in... More

New and improved Ole Works Inn.....Newly refurbished, nice, clean spacious rooms with breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding luscious mountains. Perfect for family getaway. Great service from warm and friendly staff. a vacation at Ole Works Inn will have you booking your next visit the day before you depart from this marvelous place.

I had wanted to stay at Quitos because of it's history and the fact that it was a sugar mill. I had to call this hotel for about 3 days to finally speak with someone to make a reservation which had been frustrating. The location is great. You are directly across the street from a beautiful beach (Cane garden Bay)... More

I hated this place. The room was dismal and sad looking. Closet was falling apart. Bathtub was missing spout. It was so bad we did not even stay the night. We ended up staying with a friend and lost our money. It was worth it just to get the heck out of there. I didn't even care about loosing the... More

We stayed at Ole Works Inn from a recommendation. It wasn't bad, it was just OK. We have travelled around the caribbean many times and know what to expect from low cost rooms to high cost rooms. This was charging a lot for a medium priced room. The views were great, the people are great the room was a little... More

I selected Ole Works Inn because 1. all of my top choices were completely booked back in August 08 when I booked this trip, and 2. location on CGB 3. Price wasn't so terrible that I'd be annnoyed if it did not live up to my 'standards' I don't understand the complaints, but maybe the other reviewers stayed in a... More

We picked the Ole Works Inn based on two things.....(1) location and (2) reviews from Trip Advisor. Our experience, the location was perfect....Cane Garden Bay is beautiful and it is a short taxi ride to Road Town for ferry connections. However, this is where the charm ended. The staff was not exceptionally happy to see us, no help with the... More
