This hotel IS within walking distance of the airport on St Thomas (turn right after the car park pay booths, up a slight hill past government offices and you are there - about 200 metres from the terminal!). Hotel is a bit 'tired' with the bar and restaurant down steep steps next to a small pool and the shore (not really a beach but there is some imported sand - this is a yacht collecting point so you can have a beer when waiting pickup!)
The restaurant is better than it appears at first sight and is good for watching planes come and go - the noise level is not great. It is worth renting a car but watch the bumps; Avis were happy for us to take our car to St John and we had no problems.
We were lucky to get a terrace cottage close to the bar, etc and at the foot of the steps.
