Has anyone stayed at the Ol' Works Inn on Tortola?

Thinking about booking a room at the Ol' Works Inn in Tortola, for 3 nights. The rates are reasonable. Is this a good place to stay? Any information on the Inn or Tortola would be greatly appreciated.

I stayed one night at Ole Works Inn on Cane Garden Bay and thought it was nice and and worth the money. I ahd a big room with a nice bathroom. Ask for a room not facing the road or you will hear the music from teh restaurant across the street. Or if you get a room facing the stree tyou get a balcony. The restaurant across teh stree had great food and entertaiment and is right on the water.

Shawn, I think Ol' Works is in a great location and definitely a good buy. It's on Cane Garden Bay (of Jimmy Buffet fame, a very beautiful and laid back bay that features calm waters, friendly people, and a nice view). As Kay said it's on a road, but picture a narrow 2 lane road that is best described as "sleepy". Heavy traffic might be a car a minute. And since the hotel is on a sharp curve traffic is moving slow.
I think that the restaurant across the street is Rhymer's. It's got good local music most nights and looks out over the Atlantic. It is a low building and doesn't in any way obstruct your view. I'd opt for any room that has a seaward view.
The North Coast Rd. goes from nowhere to nowhere. The towns are on the S coast. Ol Works and the N. Coast Rd. really is the area where most of the better hotels are with the exception of a few. It's a very quiet area, as I said, quite laid back. I strongly recommend you arrange for a 4WD for your time there and take advantage of the many beaches on the island.

The restaurant across the street is Quitos, and Quito owns to Ole Works Inn. It's nice, and even nicer are the Lighthouse Villas, which are 65 feet up a driveway that is next to Ole Works. Lighthouse is just a couple of years old and is owned by Quito's sister. It's really nice. I stayed there week before last and loved it.

Yeah, Quito's is the name of the restaurant. His last name is Rhymer. Quito Rhymer. Food is pretty good. Liked Quito's self-accompanied music.
