Thin thread-bare sheets needed replacing years ago. Cheapest possible, thin, old spring mattress they could find, smaller than a twin, just bigger than a cot. Floors falling apart. Not clean like it was. Very disappointing. In dire need of a remodel. Stayed here six years ago and it was much better then. Gave it 1 stars for price but would... More

then it's fine. Great location and friendly staff, but we're talking about barking dogs behind the inn at 2,3,4a as well as cocks going off throughout the night (which is super common in the VI). The room reminded us of being in the hull of a ship as every time the wind would blow, the roof creaked like there was... More

This was my 7th trip to St. John, and first time staying at The Tamarind... and now I know where I will stay during future trips! Stephanie and her staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Monday afternoon and realized Tuesday morning that there was no hot water, I mentioned it to Stephanie and she quickly found... More

The Inn was very good by island standards, remember this is not eh USA. For a solo traveler it was perfect. A room to sleep in with ceiling fan, screens, and window AC. Shared shower with hot and col water. Good location. Will recommend this to all I know traveling toSt. John. If you area a light sleeper, bring earplugs.... More

Close to town location, yet not noisy. Friendly staff. Includes simple breakfast. Dining courtyard/bar is pleasant. A tad pricey, but it's St. John. Two blocks from Starfish Market and most restaurants.

So easy to get around from the Inn at Tamarind. Great place to stay with modest accommodations. Close to grocery store, bakery, park and ocean. We walked to Solomon and Honeymoon Beach. We had new beds that were comfy, cozy. Staff was very helpful and kind. The water pressure wasn't great, but adequate. Most of our friends stayed at high... More

My second trip to St. John was completely different from my first. I stayed at the Westin the first time because I didn't know any different. If you want a resort far from town and all the fun that it has to offer, then stay at the Westin (or on St. Thomas). If you want more of the local flavor... More

After my 5th stay at Tamarind Inn, it's the only way to go. I liked the location because you don't have to have a car on the treacherous roads in st .john. The staff, and Stephanie could not have been more helpful, they know this island! Food is served with a different cuisine and chef nightly, it is a great... More

On an island overpopulated with über-expensive villas and condos, The Inn at Tamarind Court is a welcome find. If you are looking for luxury and ocean views, look elsewhere. If you want a convenient location, away from the bustling downtown scene with a friendly accommodating staff, nice bar, beautiful garden and restaurant - check this place. The vibe is very... More

To begin with my initial impression was that they found my check-in inconvenient. Maybe it was just a bad hair day but I didn't receive a very warm welcome. The room was Ok though dingy, sheets threadbare and stained. My ceiling fan was hanging from its wires and I feared it might come down on me in the night but... More
