John Inn in Cruz Bay US Virgin Islands
St. John Inn Cruz Bay US Virgin Islands Bed and Breakfast B&B Lodgings Accommodations
Host: Sarah Close
Address: Cruz Bay, St John 00831 U.S. Virgin Islands
Activities/Attractions: St. John is the smallest of the three U.S. Virgin Islands, only 9 miles long and 5 miles wide. Because the majority of the island is a United States National Park, you have the Islanders' guarantee for enjoying the unspoiled natural beauty unrivalled by its busier and more crowded neighboring islands. Through the years, its beauty has remained untouched; most of St. John appears as idyllic and pristine as it did when Christopher Columbus and his crew first sighted it about 500 years ago.
Its National Park encompasses two-thirds of the island and includes the remains of the Annaberg Sugar Plantation, another famed island attraction. Many Caribbean islands claim to provide a bonanza for water-sports enthusiasts, but in fact, few have such superlative scuba diving and snorkeling as offered on the waters surrounding the island of St. John. If one water sport is king on St. John, it is snorkeling. Most first-timers head for the famed underwater trail at Trunk Bay, just a ten-minute drive from the St. John Inn.
There are numerous hopping bars and restaurants located in Cruz Bay, as well as a few in the East end's Coral Bay. Dress casual for the bar hopping/mingle with warm friendly islanders making the night as bright as the sun filled days. One can usually find live local music on any given evening.
"This inn not only offers a convenient location, but also affordable accommodations with a touch of charm." - Fodor's
"... a great little place to lay your head at night. There is a bar with large screen TV and they do theme food nights weekly. The most affordable place to stay in St. John. Two minute walk to downtown, great for the traveler on a budget ... Rooms clean and comfortable."

"My wife and I have stayed here before, about 6 years ago. We knew the location was ideal and just hoped the place hadn't change too much. It was great, again-- continental breakfast, comfy bed, good linens, nicely painted, no bugs, A/C, TV, guide books and pamphlets, small pool, fridge, microwave, big bathroom and a cozy friendly atmosphere."
"The old Cruz Inn, the budget staple for the island was reincarnated into the St. John Inn. Accommodations have a light airy California feel, this is truly an inviting nest." - Frommer's
"St. John Inn is the best! You are going to love it! Sarah, her daughter Devin, the owners and Patricia, the wonderful housekeeper are so welcoming and nice. The rooms are wonderfully and comfortably decorated. The deck has a big screen TV, an ice maker, and every morning they offer breakfast from 8-10 AM. There are wonderful views from the deck and most rooms. Look in the palm trees between the deck and the pool in the morning and you will see large iguanas every day! On the walk from town (which is 4 minutes) you will meet Jean-Paul, his wife and their adorable puppy, Gypsy. They have the world's best chicken wings! Very affordable. Do Not Miss out on treating your self to the best of everything and anywhere in St. John USVI. I will never forgive you! In fact, I just got home last night and I am moving there in a month."
"My stay at the St. John Inn was great. I liked the small atmosphere and felt at home. I appreciated the friendly housekeepers and the great advice about touring the island that I got from the manager. They also have a large deck with a small pool, which is nice when you get back from a long day in the sun. I would recommend staying at the St. John Inn!"
