Just a few minutes walk to front street it is at the perfect location when it comes to the beach, shopping and bus stop at the door step. This was my second stay there and it seems to need a some TLC when it comes to appearance (paint,sheets,tiles) and some of the furniture could use upgrade. This is a good...

Booked a reservation for here through Hotels.com. 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...

First we asked for a late check in due to flight arriving at 10:00 pm. No one was there called the number no answer. Knocked on the door nothing. This place sucked no answer no coustomer service. We where stuck no motel. What a nightmare. Do not use these guys. Go with a more reputable hotel.

I wanted place near the centre of Phillipsburg in St Martin just for one night as I was joining a cruse the next day. As disabled I aske via expedia for an easy room if there wasn't a lift! Little did I know just how difficult it was.. The "Reception" was a surly lady sitting at a cash desk in...

A 2 minute walk from the beach and boardwalk, Joshua Rose Guesthouse is perfectly placed at the entrance to Back Street, an easy place to catch a bus or a taxi. Unlike most luxury resorts, this guesthouse is family run and has the charm of a Florida beach hotel from the 1980's in the heart of the Carribean. There is...

We spent a night at Joshua Rose Guest House and were not too excited. The bed linen and towels were clean but there was no toilet paper and the room was a bit dirty. The fridge was filthy and probably hasn't been working for some time. The room was a bit noisy because of other guests passing by. The corners...

So, This is NOT a 5 star hotel, however I found that it met all of my needs adequately..... but then again I only need a hotel room to sleep in and don't spend tons of time in the room. That being said there are some downsides.... there are only 8 or nine channels on the TV. The staff will...

This is bare bones... less than 8 channels on the cable, a little noisy,could use a coat of paint, and new sheets. I give a very good rating for overall. The staff was welcoming and helpful to us. The proximity to the front street shops,beach,restaurants and bars is less than 5 minutes walk. We did our diving at Caribbean dive...

If you book a room on expedia or Travelocity you get a charge on your credit card even "payment is due at check-in". (Fyi they only accept cash there) Neither travelocity nor hotel could track the charge. (it was about $55 in my case) We still don't understand why the rate was a lot more than it says on Travelocity....

The rooms are quite large, have decent beds and a decent airconditioning. There was no daily cleaning or breakfast, but you can call if cleaning is needed and you can have breakfast at the boardwalk. There is free wifi. The location of this guesthouse is perfect, on Backstreet, just behind Frontstreet and the Boardwalk. The area wakes up early and...
