We got off of the ferry and walked up the hill to the inn. We arrived way before check in and were warmly welcomed. Our bags were stored and we were invited for breakfast even thought we hadn't checked in. The staff was fantastic and very helpful in every way. The tropical feel of the buildings and grounds was very well done. Breakfast the next couple of mornings was very nice and relaxed. The inn is easy to walk to and located with in easy walking distance to all areas of downtown. Rooms are modern and have the quiet wall A/C units that you can easily sleep with. We have stayed on the island several times. The inn is great if you don't want to rent a house for a week or stay at a pricey resort. Really have nothing bad to say about our stay and we will be back next year.

We went back to St. John over Thanksgiving with our daughter to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We wanted some place that was more like home instead of the expensive hotels, which you are not in half of the time. We have stayed in a few other places in the past but this was definitely a hit!

This was truely an excellent experience, especially having a 13 year old with us (we had a two bedroom). We did have a jeep but it is a short walk to everything in town.

Definitely enjoyed the favorite local spots recommended by the staff. The staff, well, no words to express how great they were. We actually got to cook (along with others) a Thanksgiving dinner by the pool! The continental breakfast and happy hour cocktails really got us spoiled!

3 minute walk from the Ferry dock, on a quiet street with street parking, great staff who will spend time giving advise on what & where to do what you want, has beach chairs/coolers for the beach, good continental breakfast each day, little pool to cool off in, lots of COLORS on the walls/floors, close to everything in Cruz Bay, reasonable rates for the islands. If you want a fancy hotel with a big dining room, long hallways, fitness center and loads of people milling about don't stay here. We stayed in St John almost 20 years ago before and though it is somewhat more developed it still has it's charm and staying here makes it feel like some things haven't changed.. Don't forget to go to the Baked in the Sun bakery at the end of the street. Enjoy!

It was avery friendly place with open air and tropical atmosphere. The complimentary breakfast was really good too. A little far from the dock if you have a big luggage but on the other hand close to supermarkets so that is a plus. The only downside is maybe a little too pricy for this class of hotel??

Beautiful little hotel, excellently located, and with a lovely and engaging/informative staff. They were generous with tips about beaches for snorkeling and how to get about the island of St. John. Tropical colored and well-maintained building and grounds. We especially enjoyed our breakfasts on the deck overlooking one of the car ferries below, and the 'resident' dogs! ( - :

Simple but effective. Exactly what we were looking for when we booked. We travel to see the world, not hotels. Comfortable room with small kitchen was ideal. Breakfast and happy hour included. Staff directed us to the best restaurants, happy hour deals, and transportation options.

I would gladly stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here the last week of December. We stayed at a few different places between St. Thomas and St. John, we enjoyed this one. I would recomend this place to anyone. The continental breakfast was a great addition to our stay, walking distance to the port area as well as restaurants and the shops. The staff can help you line up tours or excursions. We did the Bad Kitty BVI tour and it was great. St john is smaller and safer then St. Thomas so if you are looking for laid back island living try this out.
