Just like the rest of St. John, the place is pretty laid back. The office may, or may not, open in the hours listed. I stayed in the budget single room and it was just what i was looking for, but no more.And that was good with me. To say the place needs a good updating or refurbish is an... More

I travelled alone to St John just for a short stay so i needed to find something economical. I stayed two nights in a single room with shared bath. The rooms were clean and I never ran into anyone else in the bathrooms hichc were also clean. I think it was about 3 single rooms per shared bath, so the... More

I came to St John for a May 2nd wedding for my son and had a wonderful time. I loved staying at Tamarind Court. I stay in a single. At first I was a bit nervous at sharing a bath, but found that the experience of it only added to the flavor and ambiance of the court and of my... More

I stayed for a week by myself at the Inn at Tamarind Court. After living on a cramped sailboat with 7 other people for a week in the British Virgin Islands, I was happy to finally have some privacy. There's nothing fancy about the Inn at Tamarind Court. It doesn't pretend to be something it isn't. It's clean, comfortable and... More

The over priced one bedroom apartment was small dark and poorly furnished. The "locals favorite" breakfast was not included and disappointing. Notice there are no pictures of their property on their site.

The Inn at Tamarind Court tries hard to do a good job for their guests, but the fundamental structure and location of the hotel makes it a poor choice for most vacation travelers. The rooms are very clean, freshly painted in a light yellow and have cute bamboo-tropical furniture. The outdoor bar-restaurant serves up good drinks and delicious breakfast. The... More

We stayed at the Saint John Inn on our first night and ended staying here. In comparison, we liked this place better. It's hard to find a easily accessible place at a better rate. Don't forget, everything is expensive on the island, so this isn't your standard $175 hotel level.

THe bad: the building is old and falling apart, and the room was very worn looking. Paint chipping, scary shower, ect. BUT, this is a island, and for budget lodging, it isn't bad. We stayed in the apt room, and it was surprisingly large. We found it weird that there was not a tv in the bedroom, but oh well,... More

This was our second trip to St. John, the first time we stayed at Garden by the Sea. Inn at Tamarind was a little bit cheaper, and there was a big difference in quality of lodging. If you are looking for something basic and convenient to Cruz Bay, this is your place. They cleaned the room daily, and the room... More

Great place, close to the ferry and all the restaurants. This inn is literally 5 minute walk to the center of Cruz Bay; taxi stand, a school, shops, bars (2 to Woody's), a church, Connections, etc. A little back story- I had booked a different place on the island which was a hovel (that review to come) and had to...
