“Great place to get stranded”
Reviewed 29 April 2010

We were on the last flight to Saba and it had to turn around and come back to St. Maarten. Too windy to land. It was just dark. Everyone on the plane had to rebook for the next day. The lady at the Tourist Information booth called Liberty Inn and booked a room for us. The ubiquitous bottle or wine was waiting for us when we arrived. Lucky for us the Regatta had just ended and everyone had cleared out. Otherwise, I don't know where we would have stayed. The kitchen is stocked with more than the usual extras. You can tell these ladies love their job and work hard to make their visitors feel welcome. Thank youl.

Definitely a place that you want to see if you get to the simpson bay area. Susan and Diane definitely will look after you. The rooms are clean, well-appointed and the rates are reasonable. Great location too so you can walk to all of the nearby hotels.

Plus, their local boats for rent give you that other option to see the island on your own terms!!

take a loo, you won't regret it!!

What a welcome we had at Liberty Inn ! (when air France canceled our flight) - my husband & I were greeted with 2 vases of wine to calm our shattered nerves.
We had a king-sized bed set in a large comfortable room. we had advice on where to eat - particularly for a good breakfast - and a most welcome ride back to the airport.
many thanks Susan & Diane.

In this day and age everyone thinks that you can't get stranded with phones,
debit cards, credit cards, etc.

Wrong. I missed my flight in St. Maarten to Miami last month and had just changed
my banking from Bank of America to a credit union. couldn't get any cash and had to
wait for the next flight the following morning at 5 am. You can't sit in the airport in St.
Maarten as it closes for the night. What to do?

They took me in at the Liberty Inn and even loaned me $20 to get a cab back to the airport. Susan and Diane who own the Liberty Inn really know the meaning of the
long lost art of hospitality. They saved my life that day and I am happy to know
that there are still folks out there who care about a stranded traveler.

Thank you Liberty Inn!

My friend and I Arrived in St. Maarten January 10th with no place to stay. The airport information desk gave us this hotels card so we decided to give it a try. When we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly suprised. As soon as we walked in the owners Susan and Dian warmly welcomed us to their establishment. They gave us a tour of the hotel and had a bottle of wine waiting for us in our room. The rooms have full kitchens great air conditioning and comfortable beds. This hotel might be one of the cheapest on the island but it certainly competes with the more expensive ones. Also if you stay here they give you half off on their boats to take out in the lagoon... they even supply you with fishing equipment. This place is a hidden Gem. Highly reccomended.

Susan and Diane are awesome! Great location...not your ordinary room or even kitchenette. It has a full kitchen so it's great if you want to make some of your own meals. So many personal touches, well equipped...like being at home when you arrive. There's even a bottle of wine to welcome you. The location is the best. Can't say enough good things about it!
