I stayed at this hotel once before about a year ago. I was over charged at the time, but didn't realize it until after I left and thought it to be a mistake. This time when checking out I signed the slip and as I was handing it to the owner realized I had been over charged again. When I... More

Here are the facts This guest actually stayed with us twice before. Both times she was given a discount as an airline employee. In fact, the last stay mentioned she was given a harbor view room for the price of an interior room. (a $40 discount (doesn't sound like overcharging to me)) With respect to this last stay, we received... More

I booked two rooms here in April for two of my clients. Their flight was delayed and they were not going to be able to get to St. Thomas the evening of their reservation. I called the hotel to cancel and was told that they would not refund the room fee which had been prepaid but would offer a 12... More

Again, here are the facts. We did receive a call to cancel the two reservations and we did offer the credit as a courtesy. We're not required to as we have a 7 day cancellation policy (as do most hotels on St. Thomas). The caller then changed her mind and told us to hold the rooms in case the 2... More

When arriving in St. Thomas we discovered that it was Carnival. We were pretty excited to see what it was all about. Our taxi driver Steve took us around the Island before he dropped us off at The Galleon. The steps seemed challenging but I figured that maybe they had a bell boy or someone to carry our luggage, in... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Galleon House and would definitely return again. My girlfriend and I brought her 9 year old son along with us. We used it as base from which to take day trips from. The ferry to St. John is at the bottom of the hill and taxis to all beaches are available immediately.... More

After our experience at the Holiday Inn/Windward Passage decided to take the advice of a seasoned traveller and stayed here for 1 night on our return to the UK. Its a long climb up steps from street level and further two flights of steps to the room we had been given. I don't consider myself unfit but carrying luggage from... More

The owners were absolutely wonderful and the view from the porch is breathtaking. The location is excellent if you don't mind the 99 steps to the room. It was bad enough without luggage, but with it, it's a killer. I'm not sure what the higher level, and higher priced rooms were like but I can't imagine them being as bad... More

The website makes this place look a lot better than it is. The people who work there are friendly and I have no problem with them. However...if you have ANY limitations what so ever...don't book here. My husband has limitations due to a stroke several years ago and I was told that I'd be able to make arrangements at the... More

I arrived at the Galleon House at 10:30 am.  Martha, the owner, said my room was not ready, which was understandable at that hour.  My plans were to spend the day on St. John and return in the evening for dinner.  Martha told me to leave my bag in the reception area with other bags; where as, I asked her...

Without going into a lot of detail, this guest attempted to get a discount from the start, claiming she was a local. She was not. Martha asked the guest if there anything she wanted locked up in the office as the reception area is a public area. The guest only requested that her purse be secured. At checkout the next... More

We stayed at the Galleon over New Year and I thought it was very good value. The room looked recently renovated, very bright and airy and a really good size. The airconditioning was new and not noisy at all. The fridge was a big plus to keep drinks nice and cold Patio doors to a balcony with table and chairs... More
