I was in St John for a wedding and only spent one night at the Island View to catch an early flight the next morning. I arrived at 10:30pm and Beth and Ron were there to greet me. Beth quickly arranged for a cab for me to get to the airport, packed me breakfast for the morning, and even arranged... More

My spouse and I stayed for one night before our Seadream cruise. We were not disappointed. Ron and Beth are indeed the most gracious of hosts (friendly, helpful and funny). The panoramic view from the verandah (as well as our balcony room) was, in and of itself, worth the price. The common verandah area is covered so you won't fry... More

All of the positive reviews of this place are true. I chose it because of the reviews. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Ron and Beth and pretty much the whole crew were very gracious hosts and were very helpful. If you're going to go snorkeling, I suggest you set it up with Ron as his rates are much... More

We needed a place for only one night, and the Island View was just perfect - clean, comfortable, great view, friendly. Dinner was very nicely prepared. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

We only needed a place for one night in Charlotte Amalie and chose the Island View based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed.

If you need the sterile/generic rooms of a chain hotel, this may not be your place. But, if you want to experience island atmosphere and enjoy friendly surroundings at a reasonable price, this is a great place to stop on St Thomas. What a fantastic view!! I stayed 2 separate nights and in two different balcony rooms. Both clean and... More

The Island View was a great deal. The rooms are pleasant. The small pool is refreshing. The view is awesome. And the owners are helpful and friendly. Plus, they cook up great steaks and pretty good shrimp too. The self-help bar is a treat and, like the rest of the place, a bargain. It's not as easy as I'd hoped... More
