The room was clean, cute, and everything worked well. If I were going back to St. John I would definitely stay here again. Our friends stayed at the Westin and had a sink that didn't drain, a toilet that didn't flush, and their parents room had broken AC as 10 women were getting ready for a wedding- including the bride! The grounds were pretty, but it was far away, had to take a taxi everywhere and some of our wedding party couldn't get a taxi back to downtown after the wedding reception ended at 1am. I would have been really upset if I didn't stay at the St. John Inn. I even accidentally broke an entire bottle of sticky liqueur on the tile floor and they cleaned the stickiness for me. Very impressed for the price!

The St. John Inn was a wonderful experience. We showed up an a whim in Cruz Bay and were directed to the St. John Inn by the tourist booth near the ferry dock. It was so centrally located we could walk everywhere (and the price was fantastic!). The staff were friendly and engaging. They suggested sights to see and some fantastic restaurants. The overall welcoming atmosphere of the place made for very fun happy hours with the other guests. My party and I will definitely be staying there again next time we visit St. John.

The St. John Inn is just what it say's on the tin - this should be their tag line!
This isn't a Hotel it's an INN so don't expect the Ritz.
Other reviews on here are slightly annoying and the customers obviously expected a Hotel.... go figure.
We stayed here for a week in June, we live on St. Martin and wanted a week away just for some much needed relaxation.
Scheduling our stay was a breeze via emails, the website could do with a 3d tour of the rooms but the photos are generally good and replicate the level of quality.

The rooms are basic, comfortable, quiet and have an lovely warm feel to them. You get a TV, Fridge, coffee facilities etc...

The bed was great and we slept really well. The owners are obviously Eco aware and this is a really nice touch. Conserve water, turn AC off etc... yes it saves them money but we should all be doing this.
The St. John INN is located about 3 minutes from the ferry port, beautiful restaurants such as Rhumb Lines and also close to the Markets.

Every member of staff is welcoming, talkative and they spend time explaining tours and attractions, not a hard sell - it appears they want you to enjoy yourself and have a great vacation. Free rum punch at 5pm, breakfast included and we were upgraded due to our 5 year wedding anniversary.

Thanks to all the staff and will definitely stay here again.

This place is awesome and highly recommended.... but don't expect the Ritz.....!

This cute and fun hotel was a great place to stay. Had one night before we checked into our villa and I booked two rooms here. Got the double room and a single. Check in was a breeze and the rooms were so cute and tropical. Earlier reviews picked everything apart. I saw some of the same repair issues but it just gives this place character! They had breakfast ready for us in the morning, where we got to talk to other guests and hang out on the beautiful deck. We had a few hours before we could check into villa so we borrowed the hotels beach gear and they even provided us with ice!
I would definately come back here, great location, cute rooms and good service!

If you are just looking for a comfortable bed in which to sleep on St. John, you will be satisfied. Although the rooms are a bit Spartan, the beds are quite comfortable. I like animals, so the roosters crowing and the resident dogs just added to the ambience for me. Being able to walk to the Starfish market and to restaurants in town was also a plus. However, the many levels and steps to climb, deferred maintenance, lack of water pressure, and indifferent staff would prompt me to look for other lodgings on my next trip to St. John. Overall, I would rate this accommodation as just "average". The island, on the other hand, is wonderful!

My husband and I took our second trip to St. John for 10 days in early April. The St. John Inn was the perfect choice for us. When we travel to the USVI, we want to spend our time on the beaches, snorkeling, and hiking. We look for a place that is convenient and comfortable. St. John Inn fit the bill perfectly. The staff give you excellent advice for where you should spend your time. The Inn is located in a great spot. It is off a quiet road that includes some local hangouts and is walking distand to the main part of Cruz Bay. It is also close to 2 grocery stores. They offer a continental breakfast which is simple but does the job. They also have a Rum Punch happy hour which is a nice refreshing way to enjoy a drink or two or three before heading out to dinner. They provided us with clean beach towels daily, beach chairs, and a cooler, which ended up being fantastic! Having a cooler to pack food and beer for the beach was perfect. We highly recommend the St. John Inn! We had a perfect trip and can't wait to return!

My partner and I stayed for a week in one of the suites -- the whole experience was great. The Inn is an easy walk from the ferry dock....it is also an easy walk from the EXCELLENT Starfish Market and the wine/beer/liquor store....and it is an easy walk from lots of good restaurants....AND it is an easy walk to the foot of the trail that goes to the North Shore beaches. We loved the casual, homey atmosphere....rum punch on the upper deck with the proprietor and/or the manager and whichever of the guests also wanted to watch the glorious sunsets.....the grill and picnic-table-with-umbrella on the back deck, where guests can make a meal and enjoy it among lovely plants.....

The service was great -- restaurant reservations when we needed them, suggestions for activities, directions, whatever we needed.

The sleeping was also great -- fan OR AC or both, everything worked -- and we loved having a kitchenette. Whenever we didn't go to a restaurant, we served our meals on our own little porch or on the deck at the picnic table. The suite was a spacious foyer, a kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom...plus covered porch with front railing and two chairs, overlooking the back deck. The indoor decor/furnishings were basic but just fine for active people like us who came for the OUTDOOR scenery! That said, nice local artwork was being installed in the rooms as we left..... And the back deck area was truly a beautiful "outside room" with a tiny oval pool for visual accent and for cooling off, gorgeous plants all round, and fun lights at night. Staff were busy every day tending the pool and the plants....the well-cared-for ambience was a real treat.

This is definitely where we'll stay next time we go to St. John.....
