The Fred is a funky hotel with a Key West vibe right on the beach. While they were still in the middle a complete renovation it was still lovey. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a great masage at the attached spa. Close to the pier, restaurants and the

Brian and the staff did an excellent job. The ownership is smart because staff can make all the difference. The rooms are very nice and many are right on the water. You can sleep with your windows open and listen to the waves.

Good Afternoon Becky E: As someone who has fallen asleep to the soft sounds of an ocean sound track for many years before moving to St. Croix, I can certainly identify with your admiration of the "real thing". Nothing beats it and we're glad you get it! Thanks for helping us spread the word. You're the BEST!

The Fred Hotel is an excellent place to relax yourself. The decor is adorable, the staff excited my expectations, restaurant and beach around the property, everything is walking distance. Another plus, if you want a little more action; you can take a Ferry to Saint Thomas Island.

G'morning Damaris K: Thanks for the terrific review. We agree the ferry is a terrific tool to get you island hopping, especially if you're on a budget. The average ferry ride is just $50!

Good Afternoon Andrew C: Whoa what a thorough review! This is really terrific and we certainly appreciate the amount of time you took to leave such terrific detail for us and our future guests. Not much longer now on all of the construction. The pool is scheduled to be open before the end of April and the bar is not far behind that. The restaurant will open later this summer and our last 10 rooms will be added just before next season.

"If there was a bad room I didn't see it. Several rooms have unobstructed views of the ocean because the building is on the beach"
"View the rooms on line or ask the staff. We loved the Rachel!"
"Don't choose the Inn on Strand street as it is truly a dump. Sleep with Fred and thank me later:)"
"Since we did not spend the night, we are unsure. The rooms are well appointed. Love the unique decorative accents of each room."
"Choose The Rachel for stunning beach front views and sunsets"
