Your Suggestions for One night Only on St. Thomas

Hi. Planning last night of vacation after a week aboard a sailing vessel. Looking for nice place not too far from airport where we can feel a little spoiled, enjoy a great meal and not pay a fortune. Don't need wifi or a pool. Your suggestions are much appreciated.

my suggestion is to stay at the marriott in the morning star section. have dinner in their restaurant havana blue. it's about 15 mins to airport unless ships are loading or unloading when you need to go through town.
havana blue is one of my fav island restaurant. excellent food in a delightful room.

Try Best Western Emerald Beach. Great prices, great service, location close to airport and every room amazing ocean view, very clean, great airconditioning and nice way to clean up post charter. Italian Restaurant in the evenings is also very good.

The past 2 years we have stayed for 1 night post sailing charter and have been extremely happy. You'll see why when you visit the website, look at the pictures and notice the price! Can't beat the value! In fact, already booked there again next year for a post charter stay!

Just want to mention the location is great for your needs. But if you want to head into Charlotte Amalie, you'd need to take a cab into town. But you really don't need to do that considering you have all you need at the hotel after a sailing trip, long shower, air conditioning, nice bar and restaurant and room with a view.

Oh yeah and did I mention price???!!

After spending 2 weeks on ST John, we wanted a place in St Thomas for our last night so we would be close to airport for our early morning flight.

We stayed at Island View Guest House. It was a good choice. The room was not luxurious, but it was clean and comfortable. They do have a pool that overlooks the harbor and a great public space where they have an honor bar. We opted to have dinner there and had a huge steak dinner. We actually split the steak, it was that big! They arranged for a taxi to take us to airport in the morning. We weren't able to have the breakfast that was included, since we left so early. We got a deal on the room too.

Run by a nice family and it was just what we were looking for that last night.
