“Our bed had bugs.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We just needed to spend 1 night in crazy, filthy St.Thomas and then catch ferry to beautiful St.John. So we thought we would book a cheap room being our flight was coming in late and we were leaving early the next day. Our bed had bugs and I think the bed support was stacked cardboard. Our room was a closet with a very used mattress. Spend more and avoid the bed bugs and horrible mattress. The owner recommended a restaurant called "The Tavern" I believe she gets a kick back from them. The food was below average, pricey and the service slow with only a few people in the place.

Room Tip: avoid all rooms

We stayed a night at this B&B while heading home from St. John. The Galleon is nicely located in the heart of the downtown district close to the harbor and walking distance to Yacht Haven. The views from the room are very nice, overlooking the harbor. While there are some steps down to shopping district or up to the B&B, it is not as bad as some previous reviewers implied. A little exercise never hurt anyone.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was nice and adequate. Many travelers there kept bags at the check in desk when arriving early or leaving late, without a problem, including ourselves.

The facilities could use some TLC. Our screen door had a broken screen. The bed could be a bit better. But the location is good, the price reasonable and that makes this a good stop for a night and explore Charlotte Amalie.

My wife and I were forced to stay in St. Thomas for a night when our flight got cancelled. We had stayed in a private villa all week in St. John, and a new friend who lives on St. Thomas recommended the Galleon. It is a nice clean place and the staff was very friendly. We had the room in the house with the best view or second best view and it was very comfy for the night.

My first stay at the Galleon House, great location for my needs. Clean and functional with a friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was very good and convenient. I was aware of the steps prior to my visit but I travel light and the challenge would not keep me away. I would stay again if I needed good access to the downtown area.

we spent one night here and thought the place was perfect.
the staff were very friendly, rates were great, rooms perfectly clean and a free & delicious breakfast in the morning served on a deck with a beautiful view. what more can you ask for. I was a bit concerned about what others had said on trip advisor about being so many stairs to drag your luggage up. But when we arrived it was not nearly as bad as some others had made it out to be. there are a few stairs to climb, it would be a challenge for someone in a chair or with joint problems. If not then the stairs are absolutely no problem.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat, hope it does not change.

Great location close to it all. This is nearby to 99 steps and there are a lot of steps, I think 87 to our room. Getting the baggage up was not fun. View was great. Breakfast was terrific. The pool is clean, we had a good nights sleep. We were able to walk downtown easily and then BACK up the hill to the 87 steps. I would do it again.

The room and grounds were very clean. The breakfast was great every morning there. The location is walking distance to the entire city. Chris and Gail were excellent. Had a wonder full visit. The one draw back would be the stairs in the middle of the afternoon. But the rest far made up for it.

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars extra and get one of the rooms with a balcony.
