If you're seeking clean, secure and convenient BUDGET accommodations, you've found the best deal on the island. I stayed here in December for 5 nights, and loved it!
I did a ton of research, and narrowed my choices down to Maho's eco-cottages and this inn. My decision was based on my preferences and recent reviews, and the Inn exceeded all my expectations.
At check-in, I was informed there was no cable in my single room. So, the manager (Stephanie) surprised me with an early Christmas gift (a FREE upgrade to a queen & private bath).
Nice, large room with clean linen. Bamboo furniture with island feel. Cable TV. Daily housekeeping available. I preferred the ceiling fan, fresh air and sleeping to song birds over the A/C. No street noise, and a dog's seldom barking was not an issue. Free wifi & nightly bugs in courtyard. No wifi or bugs in room. Although my room was an exceptional value, I felt the single rooms with shared bath at $75/nt +tax were a bit too expensive.
Walk to supermarkets, shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. Hike to Honeymoon beach. Taxi to Cinnamon beach then taxi over to Trunk beach to compare. Take $1 Vitran bus to Coral Bay and explore & dine.
I recommend Starfish's bakery, watching both USVI tourist TV stations, taking the 2.5 hour island tour ($25), and the Beach Bar for live entertainment.
To summarize, I have nothing but high praise for both managers (Stephanie & Gina). Friendly, FIVE-STAR service. Thanks for making my stay a pleasant experience!
