For the price this hotel has it all. When we looked to book a room for our St Thomas trip this was the second cheapest option on the entire island. It was also literally walking distance from the airport. If you landed at the STT airport with 2 bags each you would without a doubt not need a cab to get here at all. We stayed here our first 2 nights of a week long trip. It really worked as a good place for us to get our bearings. We were able to easily eat dinner in nearby Frenchtown and downtown Charlotte Amalie was close.
As far as the hotel itself, it has great location, very clean room. Nice hot showers in a perfect size bathroom. We were able to watch 2 final 4 games on the TV as well. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. Check in and check out were quick and a breeze. In addition to the standard room key card they also were trying out a new room key in the form of a rubber wristband. I personally wore it out swimming in the ocean for a day and in the pool and when returning to the room i put it up against the sensor and the room unlocked. A pretty awesome alternative to a room key. Our room was on the first floor and did not have quite the view that some of the others on the first floor had, but that was ok. When leaving the lobby you cross a small driveway and come to a set of steps that leads to a private beach area, swimming pool, and a bar that has bot food and drinks. And the pool is right on the water. The night time view of the lit houses on the hills is amazing from this area.
We paid about $140 per night for 2 weekend night stays from hotel dot com and thought it was a great value. We would definitely stay here again.
