My wife and I stayed here for a night before going on a 5 day kayaking/camping trip. The room was clean. The TV didn't work (but I wasn't there to watch TV). The bed was uncomfortable. If you aren't picky or like to save a buck, this is a fine place for a night or two. There is a really... More

The best things about the Inn at Tamarind Court are the price and the location. For accommodations on St. John, it is really hard to beat the rates here. If you just want a place to lay your head at night and would rather spend your money on other things, this property is a good choice. Also, the location is... More

This was the first time I stayed here and was quite pleased. I was looking forward to staying within walking distance to Cruz Bay at an economical price. Stephanie in the office was friendly and a pleasure to deal with when making reservations. She even made sure we knew where to get the beach towels and coolers when we were... More

First of all, this place is not the Westin and you aren't paying those prices either. The bed was a little on the hard side but it served it's purpose. I was in my room to sleep and that was about it, so it was perfect...not in the sense that the accommodations were perfect but it suited my needs just... More

For a 59 year old male solo traveler, this no-frill room adequately satisfied my needs for a couple days in St. John. While I promise that my wife would never have stayed at this place- the bar, location and restaurant made up for the rather austere cinder block room. The restaurant, which seemed to cater to a lot of local... More

We can't say enough about our short stay at the Inn at Tamarind Court on St. John. Our room was clean and spacious and it is a great location right in town. No need for a car as almost everything is within a short walk. Management is attentive and aim to please. We will stay here again as we found... More

This small hotel is located just a few minutes out of the busy downtown area of Cruz Bay, i.e. within easy walking distance of ferry and beach etc. Our room was average size with an OK bathroom with a good size shower stall. Towels OK but not better. The window AC unit was noisy and rusty, but did cool the... More

Typical island life for those who want to experience what it's like. Not for those who need pampering! I liked being close to restaurants and outfitters, and I was personally taken to the private beaches where I saw hermit crabs climbing trees. Stay here for the location and experience and you'll enjoy it so much more than the resorts.

The Tamirind was everything I was looking for, and more! I was greeted by the employees the minute I arrived, and made to feel at home. I stayed in the singles room with a shared bathroom. The room had cable that was not used much because the location of the hotel was right in the heart of all the fun... More

We have aways stayed at the Inn at Tamarind Court when we visit St. John. It is a delightful little Inn, it is clean, has a/c, a shower and a TV with cable. Also, it has wifi. The managers are wonderful and make you feel very comfortable and at home while there. They supply coolers, towels, beach chairs and snorkel... More
