St. Thomas, USVI
Accomodation on St. Thomas island is not cheap but here are some Caribbean budget hotels on the island that I was able to discover during my stay there.
Island Beachcomber Resort: Lindberg Bay; www.islandbeachcomber.net; 340-774-5250.
Private balcony rooms, a lush tropical garden and a prime beachfront location are some of what the Island Beachcomber offers. Although I wasn’t a guest at this hotel, I spent many of my days in St. Thomas hanging out at this resort.
I found that the rooms could do with a much needed overhaul; but I simply could not get enough of the lush tropical garden and the white sandy beach. Most of the restaurant staff I encountered was also quiet warm and friendly; however I must warn you about the food…certainly not the best in St. Thomas.
The beach at this resort becomes populated on port days when cruise ships are in harbour. I think this is probably when the Island Beachcomber receives its largest crowd.
Overall, the Island Beachcomber is private and tranquil on non-ship days and whenever I’m back on the island of St. Thomas for a cruise and stay vacation, I know that I’ll be visiting this resort again.
Bunker Hill Hotel: Charlotte Amalie; www.bunkerhillhotel.com; 340-774-8056.

Windward Passage Hotel: Charlotte Amalie; www.windwardpassage.com; 340-774-5200.
This condo styled hotel is conveniently located a block away from downtown Charlotte Amalie.
Well known for its business services, the Windward Passage which is also the former Holiday Inn hotel is very popular with business travelers.
A combination of rooms and suites are offered, some with a view overlooking the harbor at Charlotte Amalie; all of which contain A/C.
A range of complementary services are offered including Wi-Fi, parking and free taxi service to Magens Bay Beach.
