We stayed here for one night at the beginning of our week long villa rental and for two nights at the end. The first night we shared a two room suite with another couple and for the last two nights we had a standard room.
The good points- The Inn is right in Cruz Bay-you can walk everywhere and you can park easily in front of the Inn- otherwise parking is impossible or expensive in Cruz Bay.
The owner and the staff are all very friendly and helpful and willing to help you out.
The outdoor areas are attractive - this includes a breakfast deck and a cute pool area.The deck area for the two room suite was large with table, chairs, a big hammock and private.
Breakfast was very nice- apples, baked goods, cereal, juice, coffee.
Not so good points- Both of our rooms were sparsely furnished and were a little gloomy. There was no dresser if you were staying for a while. Our room in the two room suite had an air conditioner that was blasting cold air but the on/off button and dial to adjust the cold air was broken so we just pulled the plug. We kept the windows open and used the ceiling fan which was fine that night.
The single standard room had a very low ceiling with a ceiling fan. If I sat up in bed I was very close to that ceiling fan. The air conditioner controls did work in that room and we used it. There was a large comfortable bed and a large armoire but they were massive in a fairly small room. There was no dresser or place to store luggage- it wouldn't have been a comfortable room for a longer stay. The bathroom was large but only had a small sink and a shower and the sink didn't drain. The outdoor area was very narrow - pain was peeling from the wall outside.
The current owner has only owned the Inn for about four years and according to what we have been told and read about it, he has made a lot of improvements so he may need more time to fix it up. There aren't many places to stay for a few nights during the busy season on St. John so your choices are limited. St John is an expensive island- we paid almost $200 for the standard room and in the high $200 range for the suite.
