We stayed at this hotel in Jan and Feb 15. The hotel was not as advertised as the bar and restaurant were closed. There were small black bugs in my wife's bed and she received bites from the insects. There were no telephones and the wi-fi wouldn't work in our room. We stayed the second time because we couldn't find... More

This was at one time a very cool and popular place. Now, the hotel 1829 on the lower level is closed. Most of the attractions are closed or not open on a regular basis, the hilltop restaurant has been shut down, the rum factory shut down, and the bar permanently closed. Although the people who work here are exceptionally nice... More

Stayed here one night before taking ferry to Tortola. Property was not as advertised. Restaurant closed. Bar was closed. Breakfast was commercially baked muffins in individual plastic bags (like you'd see at 7-11 store), peanut butter toast and coffee. Cleaning crew was skeleton staff, rooms were not very clean and not very quiet. I asked for discount on our room... More

Lovely view, but please. The Bar wasn't open, the Restaurant wasn't open, we had to carry our luggage down about 40 to 50 stairs and back up again. The continental breakfast was a muffin, the Air Conditioning in the room sounded like a jackhammers compressor and the mosquito mesh around the window was ripped, hence I had to switch off... More

The rooms are nice but the staff is not existent. They are closing the doors in 6 weeks and it is evident. One person runs the bar, guest check in and security. The room is clean but the continental breakfast is fair. The staff is friendly enough though

The friendly staff at Inn at Blackbeard's Castle nudged my rating into the three star category. Tony, Michael, and Lima could not have been nicer or more accommodating and made our stay pleasant. We planned to stay one night in St. Thomas before taking the ferry over to St. John for a week's stay. After sticker shock at some of... More

I do not believe we have ever been in a hotel with more accommodating staff. Chris was the best and Tony seems to be able to make magic with the help of Mike. Even though the bar and restaurant have closed, Tony was able to arrange with a local establishment to deliver carry out of a magnificent dinner. Tony even... More

***The bar and restaurant have closed.*** Feels like an outdated ghost town, although a lot of potential! Be prepared to walk insane amount of stairs while carrying all your bags** We had reserved the Queen Terrace room off their courtyard. They put us 40 steps down into this dank bank of rooms that belong to Hotel 1826. So technically we... More
