Admiral's Inn, St Thomas: Run down & messy

Jump to last reply

Based on lodging information listed in the 1997
Fodor's Caribbean guidebook I booked and stayed
for 4 nights in an oceanview room at the Admiral's
Inn in Frenchtown, St Thomas. While the room
was clean. I found the property to be littered with
dead air condioners, the pool in need of painting and repair, and the buildings and walkways in need of major remodeling work.

The Inn claims to have a tiny beach and area for
snorkeling. I guess it does if you have a death wish. Water in it's salt water "pool" never
got deeper that 2 feet and small boats and ferry's
create waves which would cause you to hit the
rocky bottom.

There are great restaurants in walking distance and the town is just a few minutes stroll away. But, unless work is done to this Inn I would not
stay there again. I would recommend the Hotel
1829 which is also in the same price range, listed in the 97 Fodor's guide and has a pretty
bar with great views of the harbor.
