Good place to stay 1 night in CA?
      #1726335 - 03/12/17 01:26 PM (76.66.152.69)

Maybe on wrong forum but I guess enough of the members here have needed to stay one night in CA before flying out? Our flight is leaving 8:30 AM and we will have been in the BVIs sailing for 7 days and staying in a house on Tortola for another 4.

Decided to extend our stay by one night and leave on the 4th of July as the drop in ticket price is huge (over $300 per ticket w/ 6 travelling = big bucks!)

Anyway all that to say is that we are looking for a nice, place in CA to do some shopping and get some dinner before we depart early the next morning. Imagine that we won'tbe getting to CA until mid afternoon on the ferry from Tortolla.

So far choices are
- Bunker Hill Hotel
- Windward Passage
- Galleon House

Some of the comments stating that galleon house is not in a nice neighbourhood... so although seems like the best deal. not so sure.

Thoughts, comments, suggestion?

I really don't have an answer for you at this time. We have only spent one last night in St. Thomas as we used to take a reliable, now maybe not, ferry from Roadtown to Charlotte Amalie. Last May, worried about missing our flight due to ferry issues we booked Windward Passage. It was OK, and the room, while not having a great view, was only $160., which was cheaper than Marriott Frenchmans Reef, for instance. This year, however, rooms went way over that. Windward Passages web page had a price posted for two at $124. I called direct, that price was denied, and I was informed that one night for two would be $240. So, I started looking, checking in here and online, and decided, since it is just one night, we booked the Island Beachcomber near the airport at $140. for two with a waterfront view this coming May. After we get home I will post a review. Some folks said yes to the Beachcomber, others said maybe, or no. But, I think some of them were staying in the USVI for vacation, not just one night. We'll see what happens...

Check prices for "Emerald Beach Resort"..5 mins from the airport..if they are reasonable..and they do fluctuuate wildly, that is always our number one choice with a dinner in nearly Frenchtown..preferably at " Oceana"..

We've been staying at Windward passage for several times now. We used go stay near the airport on Lindbergh Bay, but we have had enough beach time these days when going home. An easy walk across the street from ferry terminal.

I agree Oceanis is a favorite. last week coming home they could not get us in until late so we went to Room With A View at Bluebeards Castle. It was one of the better dining experiences in last couple years.

You could also look at Island Beachcomber -- same beach as Emerald resort closer to the airport.
Green Iguana is a very good option worth checking out.
Island View Guest house and Mafolie Hotel are also good alternatives.
Bunker Hill and Galleon House are very close to each other if you are considering neighborhoods.

We had a similar schedule and stayed at the Mafolie last year. It was great. Pool was wonderful, views magnificent and the onsite restaurant superb. Very relaxing last night of vacation and they do a real breakfast i n the morning, although you might have to be up and out before it's available.

Emerald Beach Resort - if you can get a good rate.

Island Beachcomber is not as nice but we have stayed there too.

We're staying at Emerald Beach for one night pre-charter next month. They matched a $201/night rate I found on Tripadvisor. That's for a king size bed, ocean view.
