We wanted a place to spend our first and last nights in Charlotte Amalie convenient to STT airport as bookends to a sailing charter and stay on St. John. The Green Iguana Hotel was perfect!

Just 3.5 miles from St Thomas airport (STT), we are convenient for overnight stays coming into and leaving the Virgin Islands. The Marine Terminal is just down the street and the ferry to St. John Island just down the Historic 99 Steps make it convenient for you to get to anywhere in the Caribbean!

We stayed at the Green Iguana for 1 night before beginning a cruise. I had read reviews online and I thought it might work for 1 night.

What a fun, funky little hotel in a terrific location for walking downtown. We stayed here one night on our return trip from BVI because we didn't want to risk missing our flight the next morning. Wanted something reasonably priced, without a two-night minimum, and close enough to town that we could walk for dinner, etc. - the Green Iguana... More

I think you are the only one to refer to us as "funky" but I like it! When you are on the first morning flight out, you have to be on St. Thomas to make it through the airport in time. We understand this and do offer single night stays, although we hope on your next visit you will add... More

Gwen and John manage and maintain this property and are the best folks you'll ever meet. The location provides a beautiful view of the Bay, Frenchtown and Hassel Island. Just a few minutes drive away is the Green Room located on the bay. John and Gwen turned us on to this place, FANTASTIC seafood with great service and atmosphere!

The Green HOUSE in Charlotte Amalie is actually only 7 minutes to walk for those who are not renting a vehicle. I remember our first night on St. Thomas when it was recommended we "start" at The Green House. It has been a favorite of ours for 15 years! No matter what you have the taste for dinner-wise, we can... More

My Boyfriend and I were on our way home from St. Croix where we had a quick layover on St. Thomas.

We needed a one night stay before leaving for a charter vacation. This was a nice stay; walking distance to downtown, clean rooms. John and Gwen (managers) were friendly and responsive. The rates are very reasonable. I noticed that they had beach towels, chairs, water toys and sunscreen for guests to use.

For our short stay we did not need lots of amenities, just a nice place to stay overnight. Green Iguana fit the bill.Hosts were very gracious, and its a short easy walk downhill to hill town, a short cab ride back if you tired from exploring town.
