Island Vibe in a great location. Comfortable, friendly, convenient, safe, quirky home-away-from-home. The St John Inn is a perfect place to stay during your visit to St John. The location is ideal, within walking distance from the ferry terminal /restaurants / bars / car rentals / groceries in downtown Cruz Bay, without being right in the middle of all the noise and foot traffic. Compared to other options on the island, it is a fantastic value with extra amenities to make your trip easy and fun — Breakfast in the morning, snorkel gear, beach coolers, chairs & towels, bug spray, sunscreen, etc. are all available for free. And of course, the famous rum punch happy hour is a must! We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The room was clean and well appointed. It had a microwave and fridge which came in handy for late night snacks we bought at the nearby grocery store. The beds are very comfortable — “Heavenly” mattresses, high-thread-count linens and soft pillows. The Inn is taking extra steps to help guests stay safe during the pandemic without impacting the quality of their stay — common-sense mask procedures, sanitizing rooms and common areas, serving food/drinks in an outdoor patio area. Perhaps the best part of this quirky little boutique hotel is the friendly and helpful staff. Always available to assist with questions, concierge services, or just friendly conversation. The St John Inn goes out of their way to make your vacation special. Do yourself a favor and give this boutique hotel a try, you won’t be disappointed.

A Perfect Spot for the Perfect St. John Visit We stayed here in a 2br villa for 4 nights. This was our first stay at the St. John Inn and now we have the place we will be staying at from now on and where we will steer all our friends. We checked in early in the evening and where met by Brittany and Mike (and their cute dogs), the hosts. It was an easy and welcoming check-in, and then Brittany took us on a tour of the hotel, showing us the patio area (grabbed a rum punch there that is their happy hour), the pool garden area, and then across the street to our villa. The 2br villa (we had Villa #1 I believe) had a colorful picket fence around it and we were able to park our jeep right there on the street. The villa is very large, with a sitting area with a futon sofa, a large TV with satellite, and a/c. The larger bedroom has drawers to unload in, a VERY comfortable queen bed, a/c, and a fan. I need to sleep cold and the a/c and fan kept us very cold, perfect! The 2nde bedroom has the same VERY comfy bed, but no drawers to unload the suitcase. Both bedroom open up to the patio that has a view of the water and a table where I would have morning coffee and afternoon snacks. There is a large kitchen with a full size refrigerator, stove tope, coffee maker, etc. There is only 1 bathroom though, but we managed through it. The St. John Inn is a very welcoming cozy spot in the middle of town. We have already booked our next stay in March. It's less than 5 minutes walking to town, and only about three minutes to our favorite spot, Woodys. No major hills to try to climb. We rented a jeep from Courtesy Rentals just a few doors down. Best of all Mike and Brittany are just the best hosts! We enjoyed their hospitality and friendliness. We cannot recommend this any better!

Great location in the middle of town! Had an awesome time at the STJ Inn during our recent trip. Brittany and Mike were great hosts and made the trip very enjoyable. Light breakfast was available every morning to get you going before a hike or beach day, then rum punch was waiting as soon as you got back for happy hour. Super close to downtown bars in Cruz Bay. Planning to return again in a few months!

Perfect Boutique Hotel Right In Town If you're looking for a boutique experience within walking distance from bars, restaurants, shopping, etc, this is your best bet! This tropically decorated Inn definitely makes you feel the island vibe. It's super clean and inviting. The staff is beyond helpful and they treat you like family. Be sure to specify if you want a quiet room as some are a bit more quiet than others. Enjoy the continental breakfast and rum punch happy hour to get to know everyone.

Great Inn on a pristine island! St. John’s Inn is well kept, quiet, charming and conveniently located in the heart of Cruz Bay. If you’re considering traveling to the islands and looking at St. Thomas please reconsider. St John’s beaches, restaurants and landscape far exceed anything you will find in the larger more commercial St. Thomas. Also, I highly recommend this hotel, they are very kind and amendable to customer needs. The staff is very friendly and easy going. They take many precautions to keep themselves and customers safe during the current COVID situation but don’t make it tedious. Jeep rentals across the street, two large markets within walking distance. Restaurants and shop nearby. Again, highly recommend!

Friendly, clean and great location! The St John Inn has a great location in Cruz Bay and is clean, comfortable and run by a warm and welcoming staff. Very much the St John island vibe here. The location is just a short walk from Woody's Seafood, the Quiet Mon Pub, The Longboard restaurant and the Cruz Bay waterfront. Rent a Jeep at Courtesy Car Rental just 20 steps down the street (super nice people) and you'll have easy access to a ferry shuttle.

Better than our honeymoon! We spent a week with Dave and his wonderful and very friendly staff. They were all great and made us feel at home. We are planning our next trip amd hope after COVID we will get to stay here. I cannot say enough about the great location, the rum punch, the visits, and the cats! They went above and beyond to help us enjoy our stay.

Perfect for independent travellers My family stayed last week and had a wonderful experience. Excellent value for a trip to St John. SJI is right at Cruz Bay and everything is walkable and the Parks are readily accessible via Jeep or safari cab. The owner and staff are friendly and available to assist with all your travel needs. Breakfast and rum punch happy hour are a nice bonus.

St. John Reef Bay Trail St. John Reef Bay Trail is a worthwhile hike to include in a vacation to this U.S. Virgin Island. There are two options. The trail begins on Centerline Road and is downhill for about two miles changing close to two miles in elevation. There’s lots to see beyond the obvious waterfall, petroglyphs and sugar factory ruins but you have to make the uphill return trip. We chose the U.S. Park Service sponsored hike which brings you from their headquarters to the start and picks you up by boat at the bottom. It isn’t cheap but a good Park guide makes it worth it and they will point out many things along the way. They keep the groups small and you can pack a lunch for a stop by the falls. Check it out if you can spare a five hour time block.
