Reviewed 29 January 2012

I have a preference for owner-run small hotels, but it can be difficult to find ones where the atmosphere is relaxed and happy, the staff friendly and caring and the rooms clean and comfortable. St. John's Inn has all of these qualities in aces. It is close enough to town to pop out for dinner, but not so close that the noise would keep you up. Complimentary Breakfast and Rum Punch at sunset facilitate meeting your fellow travelers. The grounds are adorable, the rooms well appointed and the bed was more comfortable than many more expensive hotels that I have stayed at. In other words, St. John Inn is a gem on a most precious island. I can't wait till I can return.

We stayed the weekend of Jan. 13, 2012. Awesome! We will go back to this quaint Inn. You feel like an Island "Be-longer" here! If you want to feel and see the many wonders of this amazing island, then you will love this little Historic Inn tucked away in the hills of St John. Wonderful view. Clean, covenant, friendly staff. David, the owner was like an old friend and sat and chatted with us. He has many more plans to make this little sweet Inn even more sweet! Thanks David!

If campgrounds, villas and expensive resorts don't excite you, the St John Inn might be a good choice. The rooms are modest and a little on the small side, but clean and comfortable. In St John terms the prices are reasonable. Rooms have TV's, AC and wireless connection is available on the deck. The price quoted includes all taxes, breakfast and sunset rum punch. Breakfast is coffee, juice, cereal and milk, bagels, bread and muffins. The sunset happy hour on the deck consists of rum punch or byob and good conversation. The staff and owner are very friendly and helpful. If you are a dog lover, there are three very freindly dogs to pat. The location is just out of the center of Cruz Bay and only a five minute walk to the ferry dock. If you are traveling light, it is an easy walk to the Inn from the dock up a slight grade. If you are carrying a lot you can get a cab at the dock. There is a local BBQ place (Candi's) at the end of the street that serves big portions of good food at a reasonable price. You can eat outside there and chat with the locals or take it back to the Inn and eat on the deck. If you have a room with kitchenette, there is a small fridge, microwave and one burner hotplate. There are two grocery stores nearby. We stayed four nights and had no complaints. We would definitely stay there again. Reserve early if going in peak season because they fill up fast. Same thing if you want to rent a car. When reserving a room ask the inn about the 10% discount on rental cars.

Stayed for three days over the holidays before moving to a housenin coral bay. Staff was super friendly, including the owner David who was there the entire time. As other reviewers have said, new owners and working hard on constant improvement and upgrades. We loved the st john inn and have stayed at the westin many times before. Our take, would rather be here. Close to town so no taxis needed, walking distance to some great beaches if dont mind a short hike. St john inn provides breakfast, chairs, ice, coolers and happy hour. Need i say more? That is all you need to enjoy st john. If you are looking for a plush resort, then this is not for you. But if you want a simple, clean, friendly and safe space because you are out enjoying all that st john has to offer, then there is no better value to be found. We will be back.

If you are looking for a small boutique hotel conveniently located for your stay in Cruz Bay, look no further. ( If you want a Holiday Inn Express, move on.) Breakfast served outside every morning, nice deck area, wifi, rum punch served every evening. Rooms were comfy, AC was fine, wouldn't change a thing. Truly loved the experience and would go back.
It's easy walking distance to downtown for the evening. Rental car agencies are next door. We rented a Jeep for the day and the Inn supplied us with coolers and beach chairs.
The staff was just incredible and made us feel very welcome and comfortable.
We highly recommend it.
