Have been to St Croix twice in the past 3 years, stayed at the HOTC both times. We are staying there again with 3 other couples from last year, again next month. It is a little dated, but appears to have a serious renovation plan constantly taking place for the whole facility, and the improvements are obvious. Most of the people we've talked to think that is one of the best beaches on the island (people from the cruise ships rent transportation to come across the island , and pay the $4 dollar ferry ride out to the beach - no ferry cost for hotel guests).
The ferry ride is only about 500 ft and take about 4 minutes, so thats no big deal. You can have breakfast or lunch right at at a small restaurant on the little island, or take the ferry to more than a dozen good restaurants less than 2 blocks away, a number of them are right on the water.
Our friends & us think that it is one of the best lodging deals on the whole island.
