“TERRIBLE AND FILTHY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

I checked in on March 21, 2014 at around 5pm, by 6pm i was already the hell out of that nadty filthy place.

A/C was almost non existen as is was hot, no hot water, TV would not turn on, toilet barely flushed, hospitaly? what hospitality? its null, nada.

We had to walk up two set of stairs with a verly large heavy bag. No elevators amd not even the courtesy to ask if we needed help up.


My advice, if you had to chose between this hotel and sleeping on a bus stop, if would go for the bus stop, hands down.

Unless you are used to filthy stuff
like this.

We stayed at Carib beach after a villa stay on St John in February for our last night prior to flying out. The proximity to the airport is great, literally walked to the terminal in 5 mins. The hotel itself was nicer than portrayed in some reviews we found the rooms clean with great views for a great value. Front desk personnel were polite and helpful. We especially enjoyed the Tiki bar/restaurant which was a great mix of local and traveling patrons which made for an enjoyable happy hour and ultimately dinner. The bartender and servers were all helpful and enjoyable. I have already booked for next year for first and last day of vacation in STJ. We will definitely take advantage of the sister hotel Emerald beach a short walk or shuttle ride away, something we did not take advantage of this trip. I wouldnt hesitate recommending this hotel to a friend.

Where do I begin

Pros: close to the airport, comfy bed, very nice hotel staff

Cons: far from attractions, no beach, very very outdated, have take a shuttle to actually get to the beach, no hot water, horrible bathroom scared to take a shower, restaurants is overpriced with limited menu, waitress at the restaurant has no clue at all

Don't waste your time staying at this resort should be called motel

We chose this hotel for its proximity to the airport for our final night in the Virgin Islands. We arrived early and were told one of the rooms where almost ready. Three hours later, we finally were able to get into our rooms, exactly 4pm. The restaurant was not open for lunch so we were offered to either shuttle to the much nicer sister hotel for lunch, or sit in the lobby with all the rest of the unhappy people waiting for rooms. I don't know why this is billed as a resort. There is a small unkempt pool with a very small beach area. If you stay in one of the rooms across the street, you have to drag your bags there, no porters here. The air-conditioned in the room didn't work, and a couple of light bulbs were out. The coffeemaker had missing pieces, including the basket that holds the coffee. The rooms are not soundproof so you can hear all the take-offs and landings.
Pros is the bed was comfortable and room was clean. It is literally within walking distance to the airport. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious and the service from the bartender and the waitress was excellent.
I'm not sure we would stay here again

We chose this hotel for convenience - and for that purpose it was perfect! We had an early departure from St. Thomas on Saturday morning, so we needed some place close to the airport. It is literally right around the corner! It took us maybe 5 minutes to walk to the airport. There is a concrete side walks the whole way.

You might expect there to be a lot of airplane noise, but we heard a few while we were outside dining, but not while we were in our room. The hotel is clean and decorated nicely; the bed was comfortable, too.

We arrived early to the hotel and knew check-in would be a wait. The check-in staff were professional and quite nice. They gave us a pre-check-in and stored our luggage while we went to their sister hotel (just across the bay) and enjoyed their small beach. They loaned us beach towels for free and called the free shuttle they use between hotels. It was the best check-in wait I've ever had!

I would book this hotel again because of convenience instead of the Best Western Emerald Beach. You can have access to the same beach and restaurants without the higher price.

Room Tip: Go out and enjoy the lanai - it's almost as large as the room!

Avoid this hotel like a plague! We booked it with priceline hoping that priceline wont be marketing a hotel that belongs in a 3rd world county. Yes it is close to the airport but the pros stop there. It is dated, it is ugly and the staff is rude. On top of that they call it a resort and charge you a 10% surcharge, hey how about a 50% dump discount? All we had to do was spend a night as we had a flight to ctach so we booked this hotel on priceline without much research. If I did my due research I would have read other comments. I am even surprised that Best Wester would allow such a dump to carry their name/logo. Take a look at the pictures if you dont believe me.

Stay ANYWHERE else!

If you didn't stop at the first sentence, then you obviously want more details. So where goes ...

I travel extensively for business and have written many, many reviews on this web site. Most are very nice, some not so nice ... this is the absolute worst!!!

Stayed here because it is close to the airport; actually, the airport check-in area is with walking distance. However, town is about 3 miles away, and St Thomas taxis have quite the racket going - travel from airport area to center of Charlotte Amalie is $10 per person. So if 2 go in a cab, it's $20; if 4 go in a cab; it's $40. BEWARE!!!!!

Check-in: Front desk staff were extremely rude (the entire 24 hours we were here) and simply couldn't care any less. My headache begins. Our group consisted of 3 couples. One couple has specifically reserved a room (via Expedia) with ocean view and a bath tub. At check-in, they were told there was no such combination as an ocean view with a bath tub; they were given an ocean view (which turns out to ony look on a small inlet with another hotel at the other side - no ocean!) with a shower.

No elevators, and no staff to help you carry your bags up the stairs. Headache just got worse.

Hallways and rooms smelled like industrial cleaning solvent; headache is now raging!

Our Room: outdated, fraying carpet; dirty bedspread; tile & grout in the shower could use a serious scrubbing; old worn-out towels; not even a glass in the bedroom or bath - just plastic cups; barely any water pressure. Headache has progressed to migraine. Good news - the water does get hot.

Friend's Room: no bath tub, as reserved; broken telephone; broken TV; room was dirty. Walked back to front desk and demanded another room. Given keys to another 'ocean view' room, walked in to find a bath tub (!); broken telephone; broken safe. At this point, they just wanted a place to rest their heads, so they stayed.

There is a sister Best Western, the Emerald Beach Resort (nice beach and restaurant with a nice ocean view) across the little bay. Shuttle runs between the 2 hotels every 30 minutes. We were standing outside NEXT to the shuttle; driver walks over to car, says nothing to us, gets in shuttle bus and drives to other hotel - never asks us if we're waiting for him - never asks us to get in - just drives off. So we walk to the sister hotel (10-15 min walk, nice). Have dinner there. Food was so-so (like all the food we in the BVI for the previous week); nothing to brag about; I give it 5 out of 10. Catch shuttle bus back to our hotel.

For $200/night, breakfast is NOT included in the room rate; shocking. Wait staff had same attitude as front desk staff.

Checked out of rooms and had hotel hold our luggage; no charge for this service. Went on an island tour for 3 hours. Returned to hotel to get our luggage before heading to the airport; front desk staff was busy, so we walked to the luggage hold room - door was wide open with no one in sight! Luckily our luggage was still there, but hotel demonstrated zero security concerns for our belongings.

NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
