“Reasonable, central hotel”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

If you need to stay in the centre of Road Town, this is a good place to stay. The rooms are clean and spacious. The air conditioning works. The service was reasonably good at reception and very good in the restaurant, which served a very good breakfast. I was there on business and did not use any leisure facilities. The wifi was intermittent in my room.

We stayed here one night, and chose it based solely on location and price. We were catching an early morning ferry, and wanted to be close to the dock. The price was reasonable, the room was nice with a view of town and water, and the walk from the hotel to the ferry is less than 10 minutes. The hotel is also close to shopping and restaurants. We walked back from dinner at Pusser's at night and I felt perfectly safe. We did not eat at the restaurant in the hotel, but had a drink at the bar, and the service was good. I would stay here again either for a night or an extended stay.

Simple but clean hotel. Has a restaurant and pool and is within walking distance of Ferry and The Dove (best restaurant in Roadtown). Nice large rooms, with balconies and good AC!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room with a balcony - worth the view and larger rooms.

Just prior to and after our catamaran trip of B V I we stayed at Maria's by the Sea and it proved quite comfortable, clean and good a/c! It was close to restaurants and shopping so we could walk! The Patio restaurant was also convenient for breakfast. Everyone was friendly and we would go back!

A lovely way to start a vacation. We stayed here before we boarded our charter boat for the week. There are stores to replace forgotten items and Pusser's nearby. They are renovating, as usual, and now have a lovely deck and outdoor/indoor restaurant. There was a wedding while we were there, which looked nice and did not interfere with our stay at all. This was a lovely hotel, with wifi, clean tile floored balconies, and seating areas next to the routers for a good connection, at no charge which is perfect for letting those back home know that you've arrived. Good menu in the resturant, we a a yummy breakfast, eggs benedict and an omelet. I will stay here again, and recommend you do too!

Very clean and comfortable room. Wonderful location right in town on the water next to the ferry terminal, which was great for us as we traveled from St. Thomas on the fast ferry.

This was a combined business and pleasure trip. I had an ocean view room, which cost a little more, but was worth it for the view. I'm not particularly interested in beaches, so the lack of a beach didn't bother me. Everything about the hotel was great, except the the hotel restaurant, which was OK, but rather dull. There are plenty of interesting restaurants in easy walking distance. Construction on the big building next door appears to be in final stages and did not create any bothersome noise or dust.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms are worth the extra cost for the great view.
