A location directly on the Christiansted waterfront within walking distance of the seaplane base makes this well-managed inn a convenient choice for business folk. The amenities are admittedly sparse (no pool, for one), but the small-to-mid-sized rooms have been nicely refreshed in a sunny palette of pale greens and yellows and feature better-than-normal beds (at least in this price range). Some overlook the hotel’s tropical courtyard, while others offer views of the Christiansted harbor.
