“Clean and convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stayed the night before our bare boat charter started. The room was dated but very clean and quiet. We checked in late after a very long day traveling and the bartender stayed open for us after closing (midnight) so that we could unwind with a few drinks. We had breakfast in the morning which was very good.

Maria's is quite the plain hotel smack-dab in Roadtown. It sits right on the waterfront and has a nice view of the harbour, but that's about it for aesthetics. Though, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention the hotel is currently being renovated and looks promising. I stayed here one night for business and it was a bit pricey, but it was peak season. The best part of Maria's is its location. It's close to everything in Roadtown. Pusser's and many other shopping destinations are all in walking distance. The prices will probably skyrocket when the updating is finished as this place sits on prime real estate.

As with many others, stayed one night on way to pick up a charter boat. Location is great for being walking distance to a couple restaurants and the ferry dock, but the price is high for what it is. Tripadvisor's range is also too low- check their website for the real $$$ rates. Rooms were icky and dated- perhaps the major expansion that is underway will be worth it once it's open. The beds were, in a word, uncomfortable and the sheets were old. We didn't have any problems with construction noise, but the door key system was new and wasn't working right and ultimately they had to give us a normal physical key to the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful, however. While the hotel is close to the ferry dock, it is not close to Wickham's Cay II, so an extra taxi ride will be needed. We left our bags at the hotel while we did our grocery shopping, so the extra round-trip taxi ride to get them basically wiped out the savings over staying at the Moorings hotel.

Room Tip: we stayed in the cupola/tower-like building at the back of the old part of the hotel in order to sta...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I am giving this 4 stars for what this hotel is... a great first or last night on your way to somewhere else. We started our day in CT and after a long day of traveling it was nice to arrive to a clean, large room, conveniently located, on the water, with a very friendly staff. We swam in the pool, ate on the patio, slept with the door open to hear the sea, and left the next day for our BVI charter. Not plush-- but an excellent choice for our purpose.

Room Tip: we stayed in a deluxe room with a balcony over looking the sea $200

4 of us stayed for one night in 2 separate rooms in early ' 12 prior to boarding a catamaran. Location is not far from the main cruise terminal but requires a taxi to get to the sailboat marina. The rooms are quite basic and seemed to be in overall poor condition. The beds were quite "springy". Floors looked unclean and walking on them felt the same. It did appear that some renovations were being made to the entire complex. For a one night stay is was ok. Price as expected is more than what it should be.

Quite a basic hotel but in a perfect location, just a few minutes walk to the ferry terminal. I had a standard room, which comprises a large room with two double beds and a reasonable sized bathroom. Hot water was intermittent and ranged from cool to scalding, could not get it to keep at a constant temperature. The bathroom had quite a few small biting ants wandering around. Good air conditioning. Standard rooms over look the parking lot. Free wifi, and a restaurant on site, which was reasonable. There are much better choices not far away, including the spectacular Dove restaurant.

We stayed here one night before picking up a BVI Charter. Our third floor room was large and had incredible view of the harbor. You can walk here from the ferry, through the parking lot and quaint colorful shops. They are expanding, so expect construction detour to front desk and some noise. We had a nice lunch on the patio and enjoyed the small pool. Taxis are always available. Very reasonable price.

Room Tip: We had the last room on top floor of existing building, with a deck and beautiful view, for not much...
