St. John is quite expensive so we were happy to find this hotel at a reasonable price in a good location. We ended up in two different rooms during our stay (which we knew in advance). One room was very tired and very bare bones. The second room was nicer but nothing you'd gush over. As many have written, you're... More

My boyfriend and I recently had a 4-night, 5-day stay with the folks at Tamarind and it was perfect for our trip. We didn't spend much time at the end and did a lot of traveling aroud the island, but it was comfortable for what little rest we needed, including AC and cable for those lazy moments. The location was... More

The Tamarind is a convenient & casual place to stay in Cruz Bay, with an outdoor restaurant/bar that offers excellent seasonal dinners on the premises. The ferry dock, many restaurants, and two grocery stores are only a few minutes walk from the Inn. Two laundries are located next door. Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned rooms are geared to meet most budgets, from... More

We were last in St. John twenty years ago and we remembered the Tamarind Court as a vibrant place. Deciding to finally revisit the island, we booked a room for 8 days. I want to stress that we are not travelers that can afford to spend $500 a night on a room so, at $148, the Tamarind looked like a... More

I would first like to apologize for the issues you had during your visit. Everyone on staff is more than happy & willing to fix problems that should arise; we just need to be informed about them while you are here so they can be handled immediately. There is absolutely NO excuse for tattered linens since there are plenty of... More

Weather/flight issues caused us to need an extra night and this was the only place with a vacancy. I read all the reviews before booking so I knew this was a budget motel and had minimal expectations. I will say the only positive was the location and the price. However, after staying here I felt like we overpaid. This place... More

I love this place for its convenient location in Cruz Bay and its restaurants and shops. The breakfast and dinner served is incredible and the staff is helpful and knowledgable.... More

I stay at the Inn at Tamarind Court everytime I'm in St. John and it feels like home away from home. The staff is always welcoming, the food they serve for breakfast and dinner is INCREDIBLE, the price is great, the location is great. I can't say enough good things about this place. It's enough out of the main part... More

I expected a budget hotel and I don't require much to be happy but the bed was ridiculously uncomfortable, towels old and cheap. They claim to provide beach towels but I practically had to beg for them and they were in terrible condition. The owners put zero effort into the room. The location is the only plus. Pay just a...
