One night in St. Thomas

Hello all... We have 1 night in April in St. Thomas in advance of a BVI catamaran trip. There are 4 of us (2 adults/2 teenagers)

We won't really have much time... we arrive on a Saturday at 4pm, and need to be at Red Hook by noon Sunday.

Ritz and Marriott are both $800+, so we've ruled that out.

Looking for some advice and thoughts... does it make sense to stay at one of the cheaper resorts (i.e. Bolongo Bay) or perhaps find a B&B or small hotel in Charlotte Amalie to have something to do at night and the next morning. One which is popular here (Olga's) is sold out already.

I know this is somewhat personal preference, but just looking for some thoughts as lodging doesn't seem super plentiful in St. Thomas.

Thanks.

How about Secret Harbour? Close to Red Hook and on a pretty little beach.

What part of April? Carnival is toward the end of the month and much of the reasonable places get rented by extended families of locals coming back for reunions and fetes.

We'll be there first week of April. After looking at lots of options, we're going to stay within walking distance of Charlotte Amalie at a small hotel (Green iguana).

OK. You are correct that lodging isn't plentiful. Since Irmaria in September, 2017, two of the largest hotels (Frenchman's Reef and Sugar Bay) have not reopened. Some day...
