Sea View Beach Hotel
Ranked #9 of 12 Hotels in Philipsburg
Reviewed 17 October 2010

Overall nice hotel. Stairs from front street lead directly to lobby of the hotel. Lobby is minimal includes internet computer, snack machine and soda machine. Breakfast is available each morning from 7:30 to 10:30, for about $5. Room was definitely a 'Seaview' room...with 4 windows facing the beach. Views include port and cruise ship docks. There is no onsite parking, however there is a lot a few blocks away, not too inconvenient....The lot charges by the hour from 7am-8pm I believe...about $1 US per hour...with no charge for overnight. I only paid about $10 for my 4 day stay as most of the time there wasn't anyone to take my money. This hotel is definitely in the middle of all the action on front street.

This was one of the cheapest hotels I could find in Phillipsburg, St. Martin. It is directly above a casino, Parking in this area is a pain, no on site parking for the hotel. Run down looking lobby but the room was ok. Hot water, clean sheets, etc.

I paid $75 for sea view, other rooms were $60 low season

It is right on the beach, and there is a nice little restaurant a block down .

I have visited the Seaview on several occasions, it is ideally located with the front towards the main street and the back towards the beach.

The hotel itself is in serious need for a touch up, but if you don't mind things being a little outdated and needing a coat of paint, then this is your hotel.

Rooms are clean, sheets and towels are changed daily, there is no restaurant but who needs that when you live in the center of Phillipsburg??
oh, and the McDonalds is on the opposite side of the street ;-)

I am a travel agent. When I travel and stay in different hotels, I usually do an evaluation for my clients and fax the evaluation to the hotel for their quality assurance (no one ever knows that the evaluation is being done so nothing is ever staged or pre-planned). I entered into the hotel and climb up the stairs to be greeted by the owner, Mr. George. We paid $87.50 for four nights and stayed in room #50. The view was breathe taken. The beach was so clean with white sands. The view of the cruise ships coming into port was magnificent. The boardwalk was always clean. The hotel, located on Front Street, which is the happening place to shop, is lined with Casinos (their is a casino downstairs of the hotel). The sheets was changed everyday, clean towels, running hot water, cold a/c unit and they serve breakfast in the morning for $5.00. Taxi from the Princess Julianna Airport is $15.00. Tour guide wanted to charge us $60.00US for tour. Please remember that this is a tourist destination so they find a way to make money off of everything including the beach chairs (although they did it in a clever way, 2 beach chairs, 2 heinekens, 2 hot dogs, $15.00 US)

I enjoyed my stay at sea view. The location was great. In the heart of it all. (day time activites. Across the street from mcdonalds. The hotel serves breakfast for $5.00. The rooms are small. But for the price it is a great deal. The hotel is a family owned business. I would stay again. Close to bus stop to adventure the island.
