The vegetation is amazing on this property as are the views from this establishment which is close to downtown Charlotte Amalie. The challenge is that there is no elevator and you need to pull your own luggage up 100 steps plus various inclines to get to your room. The place was clean, the inn keeper was available by phone (the desk not manned) and the breakfast was continental. A value if you are fit.

The Galleon House is perfectly located in the heart of Charlotte Amalie. The host's Sonia and Harry happily welcome you into their beautiful historical hotel. As you walk up the numerous stairs you immediately are enraptured with the exotic trees, flowers, plants and picturesque views of downtown. The front desk areas architecture looks as if it were carved right out of a cave. You can't help but take a moment and soak in the incredible panoramic views of the city below. While checking in Langley kindly shared delectables suggestions on where to find authentic St. Thomian dishes. He then brought our 3 large luggages to the room. He made sure that we were comfortable before closing the front desk for the evening. We stayed in room 333 (one bedroom private bath). Upon entering we were welcomed by the brisk winds of the much needed ac and fragrant scent of fabuloso(IYKYK). The room is clean, small, and quaint.  At breakfast we throughly enjoyed speaking with the knowledgeable hostess Sonia. She peaked our interest in learning more about the enchanted island and hotels history. Sonia spoke so lovingly and gentle about the natives and those who migrated there. The amazingly gorgeous prime location, Sonia & the staff informative & vibrant spirits,  and the  budget friendly and comfortable stay will make you a frequent guest. Things To Note: • Sonia & Harry took over the Galleon House Hotel at the onset of the global pandemic and hurricane wreckage. As the world begins to slowly opens up they will continue renovating. Please practice patience and consideration. • Keep in mind to travel lightly, St Thomas is the land of hills. When you reach the hotel call the front desk and they will help you up with your luggage. • Sonia & Harry are following the governments strict covid laws, in the future they may resume hot breakfasts, but for now they offer a delicious continental breakfast with fresh juice, water, and coffee. • The Galleon House Hotel is hundreds of years old. This was the slaves quarters before they were emancipated in 1848. Keeping the integrity and authenticity is important to Sonia & Harry as well as the community.

Enjoyed a quick stay here on the way home from St. John. The hillside location and all the stairs add to the atmosphere of this little hotel/motel. Very simple rooms, fixtures, furnishings, but you are surrounded by the history of Charlotte Amalie as you gaze out over the town and its harbor from your balcony or the patio in the front desk area. Very simple breakfast, packaged baked goods, coffee, fruit. Pool is just fine to cool off in. Setting, price, and helpful friendly staff more than made up for the motel-style accomodations. Use the money you save to dine out more or buy from local stores in the historic district , all conveniently close. This part of town’s economy has taken big hits from hurricanes and Covid- related drops in tourism. Go before the cruise ships return.

So if you like luxury of any sort and can afford it, I would recommend booking a resort, not Galleon House. But this place is a true diamond in the rough. The hosts, Harry and his Wife are so hospitable, they gave us rides when we really needed it and offered great tips on where to go and what to do around the island. There's a hostel part to the B&B with shared bathrooms and separate individual rooms with private bathrooms for others. Everyone was super friendly and the beds were actually super conducive to good sleep. Breakfast is continental so coffee, bagels and muffins or granola bars. If you have trouble walking or climbing 5 flights of stairs, this is not the place for you! Save yourself the frustration, there are loads of stairs because the B&B is built on an elevation. For us, we enjoyed the exercise and it made sleep that much sweeter when we reached our room. Overall, I'd recommend this place and but will likely be splurging for something grander on my next trip to STT.

I booked through Orbitz (book now pay later) received a call from Harry (property manager) two days later asking for 1 night deposit...he said the weekend I booked was going to be busy and if I didn't pay now he'd cancel my reservation. He did just that after I explained booking a room that says pay at hotel..he was very rude has terrible communication skills for a manager and isn't business savvy..it was most likely best he canceled the reservation after reading about this out dated dump of a motel.
