I'm surprised to see negative reviews here, since we had a pretty decent experience overall. Yes, there was no Internet - but for a one night stay, that isn't a catastrophe. The restaurant was elegant and again, for the island, reasonably priced with decent food. My prime rib special ($25) wasn't outstanding - a bit undercooked, and a smaller portion than expected - but my companion got the Fisherman's Platter, which was a good portion and well prepared. My room had both a harbor and mountain view - two double beds, very large. Key problems with the room: smelled a bit musty/moldy at first, but this dissipated once A/C was on awhile. Bathroom fan is noisy, and you can't put the lights on in the bathroom without the fan. Main problem was the awful lighting - one lamp didn't work, one over a round table had a cracked shade and missing bulbs, and the bad lighting made the room feel dark and depressing, especially at night. The pluses here are the caring staff - nice people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome, including getting us a cab back to the airport and helping us with a variety of small headaches on our arrival. Another is the central location within town, so you could walk (if you wished) to a McDonald's, or to the local market (which operates late), Internet cafe, etc. Overall, Sadie Thompson Inn was as good or better an experience that we expected coming in - we would consider staying again, and having dinner there again, if in the area.
