“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We were heading out on a 10 day bearboat sail and stayed at the Galleon House B&B both on our way out and on our way back in. The price is right and the place is conveniently located, allowing you to walk anywhere in the town or along the water front. It's not a 4 star hotel if that's what you're looking for, however if you want something inexpensive, clean and convenient Galleon House is your place.

This is the third time I have stayed at the Galleon House and I have yet to be disappointed. It is NOT a 3 or 4 star hotel but it is a clean, safe place to spend the night in the heart of St Thomas. The owners couldn't be nicer or more helpful. I showed up late, left early, and gave them steaks to be stored in the freezer overnight- no problem. I would highly recommend it to the budget minded traveler who in not looking for a resort location.

Great if you enjoy boutique somewhat funky places. Caribbean cool. Lots of steps up so not for anyone that can't haul luggage up. If you can you're rewarded with good views. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Some rooms have balconies that are worth the upgrade. Located right above downtown and just a short walk. Nice breakfast on outdoor lobby/patio. Pool too.

We'll stay again. Hope this helps

Stayed on business one night on September 19, 2012. Repeat visit.
Room was very clean and bug free (which is not easy in a tropical climate).
Tile floors, glass block shower, large bathroom with nice towels. In-room small fridge, Internet TV, and in-wall air conditioner that worked exceptionally well with the ceiling fan to cool the large room (Queen bed plus twin bed). Good security. Fresh ice and bottled water in the common area with view over the harbor.
Nice compact swimming pool open from 8 to 8. Under new ownership in the past year and everyone was friendly and helpful. This is a centuries old bed and breakfast so don't expect luxury accomodations but you will be quite pleased with a comfortable environment right in town within a five minute walk of everything except a beach.

Room Tip: Book a larger room for added comfort.

Only stayed one night but were positively surprised about the uniqueness of this place. The view is stunning and the girl in the reception was positive and helpful.

The rooms are quite small but clean.

My wife and I stayed at Galleon house for 5 nights with the intention of finding out if we wanted to live on St. Thomas. Trish, Doug, and the entire staff were very helpful in providing all of the information we requested. I highly recommend this cozy B&B. It is located within an easy walk to downtown shopping and restaurants. There are lots of steps to get up to your room, so anyone with physical restrictions should consider this. There are 51 steps (yes,we counted) to the front desk and another 31 to our room! The payoff is the view was awesome! The morning breakfast was delicious, and Doug provided us with muffins for our early morning departure. The pool was always refreshing and clean. The room was well attended to and well stocked with the necessities. We didn't see any bugs in our room at all. The step down shower was unique and fun! Good times! We will be back!

The Galleon House is the best place to stay! Trish is a fantastic host; willing to steer you towards whatever it is you're after, from restaurants to great night life. The price is right, the air conditioning is crisp, everything is neat and tidy. I will never stay anywhere else on St. Thomas.
