“Good choice for a couple nights”
Villa Olga is a fantastic place if you are looking for a spot in St. Thomas for 1-2 nights. In Frenchtown, walkable to Charlotte Amalie downtown and shops. Frenchtown has many great restaurants, awesome coffee shop and a good local feel (yes there are chickens running around...this is the Caribbean). The couple running Villa Olga are extremely nice and very helpful with lots of recommendations on where to go. The location of the hotel is what makes this place, especially if you need to catch a ferry. The accommodations are good: beds are comfy and clean, flat screen tv with all the channels, pool area is nice to hang out after dinner or during the day. There is a little cafe on site for lunch that we tried and was quite pleasant. And while there is no beach, the view of the harbor and bay are fantastic. For the money this place can't be beat.
“Good value - great location for the marina”
St Thomas hotels are very spendy. This is a great alternative if you need to be near the marina and not too far from the airport and you don't want to spend an arm and a leg. The proprieters are very friendly; the rooms could use some maintenance. Great location - wonderful view and right next to a great restaurant, Oceana. Be aware - lots of steps to get to the rooms. Don't book this location if you are mobility-impaired or rely on a wheelchair.
“Great view, but have to climb lots of stairs”
A nice room convenient to airport, and with a lovely view. But be prepared to climb the equivalent of four floors of stairs to get to it! There is no porter service.
This is more like a family-owned hotel. Everything was very well maintained. They had microwave oven and fridge in the room. The hostess was nice enough to give us an ocean view room with no extra charge and the ocean view was fabulous! The AC was a little bit old and noisy, but overall we had very good experience over there.
“Service was a ten star but it was a very old hotel.”
There were a lot of stairs, would not recommend it unless you are willing & able to climb at least 5 flights a day. This hotel was older. The owner was soooooo nice & helpful. Recommend staying in the ocean view room; the "harbor rooms" were not the best. Located right on the water. Next door to a really good restaurant & down the street from an awesome bakery. It was located in Frenchtown, a lot of people sat in their cars at night "and smoked" by the water. Would recommend anywhere you stay on St. Thomas if you can stay in different hotels/areas to get the full experience.
“Such a great manager!”
This hotel was clean and exactly what one would expect for a 2.5-star hotel. It was halfway between downtown Charlotte (where the carnival partiers were too loud) and the airport (easy to get to in the morning--by taxi). It was a 25-min walk to the ferry dock (we went to St. John). There were several restaurants and bars close-by, and even a McDonalds for emergency early-morning coffee. Stacey, the manager, was soooo helpful to us. She is an experienced hostess and really took care of us, getting us all the info we needed (it was our first time to the USVI). Thank you, Stacey!!
“Motel 6 in St.Thomas”
It was a motel atmosphere, air worked, hot water, cable tv and a decent bed. Built on the side of a mountain, plenty of stairs to climb. They did have a pool recently redone and with no swimming hours. It was located in the french quarter area with some local restaurants nearby, 3 minutes on foot. Also located on a beautiful point, overlooking the bays next to a great restaurant that was closed for low season. The manager was super friendly and helpful to us. The place does need some more tender loving care, but suitable for the costs per night and near to the main shopping areas. We spent most of our time out sight seeing and snorkeling the best beaches, Coki point is super but a trip to Meagen bay beach is a must see. The Swishers
“Adequate for one night near ferry”
This is one of the lower priced hotels in the area for good reason. It's adequate for a one night stay before taking the morning ferry to the BVIs. The rooms are in need of repairs, and were not as clean as I would have liked. The beds weren't in great shape. However, the hotel manager was very friendly and accommodating, and I felt safe there. The hotel is walking distance to several restaurants and the ferry terminal. If you're looking for a bargain and don't mind roughing it a little, I would recommend this hotel.
“Never going back!!!”
The staff was very nice, but the rooms were dumpy. There were stains on the sheets. There was a hole in the wall where it looked like someone pulled the towel rack off of the wall. They gave us a room where the deadbolt didn't work, so I had to ask for another room. Then the toilet wouldn't flush. The area was dumpy and felt unsafe. I would not recommend this hotel at all. The "restaurant " district that it was described as being in consisted of 4 or 5 shacks with chickens running around everywhere.
“OK for just one night”
If you are staing in St.Thomas to catch the charlotte amalie ferry the next day, then this is a good choice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, but in various states of disrepear. Blinds were broken, sliding door off hinges, issues with windows, handles for water in the tub were loose and would fall off. There are also many, many stairs to climb to get to the rooms, so be prepared for that. All ofthat said, the staff was very kind and helpfull, the location is great (convenient to the airport and ferry), Frenchtown is nice and the view fromt he oceanfront rooms is very good. There are nice decks on the oceanfront rooms. I would stay again to catch the ferry the next day. It's a good option for that purpose considering the price.
