USVI-On-Line: St. Thomas Hotel, Resort & Villa Reviews
Best Western Carib Beach 08/21/01
Reviewers Rating: Fair
Let's start with what's good about this hotel: Most important (to me) was the fact that it's about the cheapest on the island. As an added bonus, you're literally 100 yards from the baggage claim area of the airport (so don't pay a taxi $10 to drive you - just walk). Also, since this hotel is a long way from most 'attractions', it's a pretty darn quiet area (the airport is pretty quiet by dusk).

That said, this place is a dump. I don't know how much Photoshop-ing went on with the promotional photos of this hotel, but it's really not nice at all. I'm surprised Best Western will allow their name to be associated with this place. I won't drone on about the poor service, because I found out that that's how everything operates in the USVI. However, the hotel is not clean or roomy or even nice to look at or sit in.

Of note: The free shuttle bus into town is just that - 'A' (singular) free shuttle bus 'into' town (not back). The free continental breakfast is 'a' bagel and your choice of juice.

If price is a concern, give this place a look. You'll be treated poorly everywhere you go on St. Thomas, you might as well not pay $300 a night for it.
