I stayed at the hotel with some friends. The location is very convenient to shopping, restaurants and the ferry. Lots to do within walking distance. The owners are friendly and make themselves available. Rooms were not big, but were clean and newly remodeled.

We started and ended our trip with 2 nights each at this hotel in downtown Cruz Bay. Very short walk from Ferry and all shopping/restaurants. The couple who own and run the hotel are very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that needs inexpensive, but clean and comfortable accommodations in Cruz Bay! The online reservation system worked well and the flexibility of a 2 night stay was just what we needed!

Having been to St. John a few times, I have already 'rented a jeep' for the day to see the Island, so I like to stay 'in town'. Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is an incredible place in a great location! Not 'blocks', but a block from where you would want to go in Cruz Bay. Comfortable, bright and clean, and Dave & Denise could not have been more accomodating. I've found my place to stay in St. John.

Our days started with breakfast on the covered landing - a nice variety of pastries, oatmeal, yogurt, juice & coffee. We enjoyed visiting with the hotel owners and other guests there. The hotel was convenient to shopping, restaurants, the docks, and nightlife at half the price of a resort we looked at. The hotel had recently been remodeled in island contemporary with nice furnishings. When we arrived, the rooms were open to the island air, but the a/c made things much more comfortable.

My fiance and I did a lot of research before heading to St. John this past March. We wanted something nice within our budget. After reading countless positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to go ahead and book Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel, and we could not have been happier with our decision to do so. When we travel to St. John, we don't spend a lot of time in our hotel room. This hotel is perfect for people who share that sentiment. The rooms are impeccable as far as cleanliness and comfort, but yes, they are on the small side. When we were in our hotel room winding down at night, we were completely satisfied with our accommodations. Staying at Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel feels like staying at a friend's house. The hosts are warm, friendly, helpful, and present. One of our favorite daily rituals of the trip was waking up in the morning and having coffee on the porch while chatting with fellow travelers or the owners themselves. My fiance actually proposed to me on this trip, and David and Denise (the owners) went out of their way to help my future in-laws help us celebrate the occasion. After a long day of snorkeling, we arrived back to our room and found flowers and a bottle of champagne waiting for us from our family. There isn't a FTD on the island, so David and Denise took it upon themselves to go out and get the flowers and champagne for us from our family. It was such a nice gesture and confirmed our already glowing review of the hotel. We are getting married in St. John next February, and we are definitely recommending Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel to our guests.

We loved it here. Denise and David are delightful!! The rooms are cozy with mini frig and flat screen tv. Our's had a little balcony overlooking the street, which was very cool. Denise was there to greet us upon arrival. Told us all about the $1 bus and other things we might want to check out while visiting St. John. We really enjoyed our stay and would defiiately stay there again when In Cruz Bay.

We were lucky enough to get a room here. The hotel doesn't have many rooms and they tend to book well in advance, and for good reason: the island accommodations are pretty much only at the far ends of the spectrum. All inclusive resorts on one end, camping at the other. Not only does this hotel fill a much needed niche, it does it with style. Situated 2 blocks from the ferry landing, the hotel is in the perfect spot to start your stay on St. John.
The young couple who own the hotel are very friendly, they seemed to truly enjoy the company of the hotel guests. They are also very helpful with tips about the island, whatever you need to know; from where to eat to which beaches are best to the finer points of hitchhiking. The small breakfast was lovely and the small patio offered an intimate setting to engage with other guests.
The one drawback is that the rooms are (or at least ours was) fairly small, but they are well designed and quite comfortable. But who's spending time in their hotel room when they're on St. John??
