Decent place to stay
Rooms and bathroom are dated, but everything works and is clean. Wifi worked great, and so did the air conditioner. Good location to stay if you want to be down town Philipsburg.

If desperate
I picked this for one night because I wanted something at the low $100 price point for one night. We flew in late, so I understood the registrar was not in the office, but didn't know how to find her. Room had closed jalosy windows, very few working electrical outlets, & bathroom shower did not look clean. Window AC barely cooled. When checking out, no staff available, so owner of shop downstairs said he was supposed to take our money. Who knows? Seemed shady all the way around. Be prepared to carry your luggage up two tall, narrow flights! If you have size 13 shoes, don't go here!

Not open for late check ins
Booked a reservation for here. Put in the notes for the reservation that we would need a late check in (11:30 or midnight). (Never heard anything back from hotel and hotel didn't have anything in their listing stating that we had to check in before a certain time). We arrived around 11:20. The place is above a market and the market was closed. Walked up to office for the guesthouse and it was also locked up and closed. Knocked several times and waited for 20 minutes. Still no answer. Called them. No answer. Called hotels.com and they also called them. No answer. Needless to say we had to find somewhere else to stay with hotels.coms help and it took over an hour to find somewhere. So, we didn't get to our room for the night until after 1 a.m. HORRIBLE!

The real adventure: Josuhua Rose Guest House
In the nineteen eighties, it was common to see the average tourist, genuinely interacting with islanders. Then came all-inclusives (and the fear and coercion inspired by ubiquitous news networks), and we all stampeded to sterile resorts. Today, if you want to plan your own vacation, wake up on your own time, manage your diet, catch a bus to Marigot, for the St. Bart's ferry, or to Maho for a beautiful walk on the beach, if you want to sample the best St. Maarten barbecue, Joshua Rose Guest House is the place for you. If you want to stay around people who look, think, and consume exactly what you do, if you want to be waited on hand and foot, only to return home without having seen the authentic St. Maarten, by public transit--then you're missing the Joshua Rose experience. I highly recommend this guest house. My children experienced the 'working man's vacation,' and the 'Back Street posse,' was extremely helpful, very friendly. As one resident insisted, "You're in St. Maarten! Never a problem." Nadia at the Joshua Rose front desk is very friendly. Please extend thanks.
