“The Liberty Inn is perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Susan and Diane Yukon are fabulous hosts. They are as kind and welcoming as they are thoughtful and interesting. We spent hours gabbing with them and just getting to know them -- they are a touch of New England in the middle of the Caribbean. Their expertise in area restaurants and other places to visit is unsurpassed. The Inn is lovely and thoughtfully appointed in every way. If you are looking for location, this is the place to be, and not only because it is adjacent to the pastry shop! And the use of the private dinghy dock was the best in a city overrun with dinghies. Thank you Susan and Diane.

We were "stranded" in St Matrin an extra 3 days courtesy of the Blizzard in the Northeast last week. All rooms on the island were booked. Finally we found The Liberty Inn. When we arrived it was such a pleasure to be greeted by the nicest folks you can imagine. We were a bit stressed to say the least, and when we met Susan and Diane and they were so welcoming and offered us a glass of wine I almost cried! What we were lucky enough to experience was an immaculately clean room, a location within walking distance to some of the best restaurants on the Island, and the most welcoming hosts you can imagine. We really enjoyed our stay there, and will be back for sure!

This has been our fourth time to St. Maarten, and fourth time to Liberty Inn. Susan and Diane never disappoint us. They are always, friendlly, helpful with suggestions of special places to see and just plain lots of fun. Always one of our favorite places to stay!

Five women 48 to 63 rented an apartment at the Liberty Inn for seven days...located on the dutch side with the most fabulous pastry shop right in front...it is safe and clean and the owners Diane and Susan bend over backwards to accommodate...welcoming bottle(s) of wine (as one of the girls liked white wine while the rest of us wanted red)...I made a list of "please, may I have's" which Susan (who could do stand up) referred to as my "list of demands"...I'm still laughing...they made sure we had everything requested and then some...it is a warm relaxed place to stay...lots of hot water...five women back to back showering and never ran out...having coffee every morning overlooking Simpson Bay Lagoon and the Blue Heron and Egrets just hanging out...this is my second visit and won't be my last...they just keep getting better!!!! No matter what your needs may be Susan and Diane will do their best to make it happen...thanks again and p.s. (love you guys!)

Room Tip: Rented a two bedroom with small kitchen and spacious bath...one bedroom with queen bed and the other...

Extremely helpful & friendly. We urgently needed 2 rooms at very short notice which they managed to help us out with. Clean, comfortable, friendly & secure. Great location & great service. Thank you for making it so easy.

We were only at the Liberty Inn for one night during a layover to another destination. The owner made us feel very welcomed. Our room was large, had a balcony overlooking Simpson Bay, and had a well equipped kitchen. The bakery on the first floor was wonderful.There are plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance. There is also a great food market close by. This place was perfect for our needs and I would definitely recommend for those that do not need the amenities of a large resort.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Liberty Inn! It is located centrally on the Dutch side near the Simpson Bay Bridge, has water access to the Lagoon, many restaurants, shopping and Simpson Bay Beach! We think it is the best location on the island. The hotel is owned and operated by Susan and Diane and they are completely friendly and helpful at all times. We felt secure and extremely comfortable, and often sat out on the back patio which overlooks the Lagoon. Our spacious room had free wife, tv, kitchen, A/C and was roomy and clean. We will certainly stay here again!
