“Excellent Accommodations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

My girlfriend and I decided to book a trip down to St. Maarten at the beginning of August and chose to stay at the Liberty Inn after we read some great reviews online. We weren’t looking to stay in a large hotel and thought that the Liberty Inn would more than satisfy our needs. After a long travel day, we were thrilled that the Inn was only minutes away from the airport. Upon our arrival, the two lovely owners, Susan and Diane, happily greeted us. They were very friendly and showed us to our room. When we saw our accommodations, they exceeded our expectations. This was not just a hotel room. We had a small kitchenette, homey furniture, a beautiful porch over looking the lagoon, and best of all, an authentic French bakery right below our room. Our week at the Liberty Inn went by way too fast--we didn’t want to leave. If you are looking for a nice, cozy place to stay, don’t even waste your time considering another place. We are planning to return again next year and won’t be staying anywhere else!

We really enjoyed our week at the Liberty Inn. Excellent staff made us very welcome. Room was extremely comfortable, attractive and clean. Good wifi service, air conditioning, dinghy dock out back on the lagoon- a kitchenette was very useful. Location is also perfect and close to restaurants on the Dutch side. It was a pleasure to stay at the Liberty Inn and we plan to return.

We discovered on our trip back from BVI that most places will not consider a one night accommodation . Thankfully Liberty Inn will, and with a spacious and well located room. We loved the close proximity to restaurants. We also tok advantage of their special rate for a small boat around the lagoon while waiting for flight home.

Room Tip: We choose a balcony room but did not get a chance to benefit-restaurant very close and noisy next do...

We had the opportunity to stay at the Liberty Inn for one evening before we set sail on our cruise. Susan met us and showed us our room, the room was clean and very nice. The bakery downstairs was very good and we ended up having breakfast in the morning there... very good! When we left Susan came out and got us a cab the next day... If we ever get the chance we would most likely stay there again... There hospitality was excellent and high on our list.....

Wonderful place to stay. Susan and Diane the best. Good location. French Bakery out front that is unmatched on the island. Boat rentals for some excitement located on the property which is on the lagoon. Our family will be back.

Room Tip: Loved our room facing the Lagoon.

We had a lay over in St. Maarten on our back home to Canada from Tortola, BVI. I was looking for something other than the usual hotel room fair and found it in the Liberty Inn. We arrived very late, and after a quick call to Susan from the airport to explain the delay, she had everything arranged so we were able to check ourselves in, which was fine with us. The rooms looked like home! An eclectic mix of furnishings, nicley appointed kitchette, big bathroom with shower, air conditioning and comfy bed. Our room had a roof top deck that overlooked the Simpson Lagoon and across the street there was access to the Simpson Bay Beach. The French Bakery located at the front of the Inn was still open so we were able to get fresh croissants for breakfast the next morning and enjoy them on the patio behind the Inn. As long as you're not looking for the Hilton (or their prices!!) - you won't go wrong staying at the Liberty! Thanks Susan and Diane for a wonderful end to our holiday!

Room Tip: We liked the room with the roof top deck!! Lots of live music on the busy street on Saturday nights...
