"No way Man!"
My wife and I arrived at night in a very old run down all black part of town. Looking back on the first night now, I realize all the islands, save St Barts are composed of all black people and most of the towns are in very poor condition. We should have booked a chain resort or something of that nature. On the positive side the very old bed did have […] clean sheets and there were no bugs (we certainly looked). The air conditioner worked and the bathroom was was quite acceptable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hôtel super sur la plage!!"
Cet hôtel est génial vu le prix, en plein sur la plage et sur le boulevard principal de Philipsburg (front de mer). Mais il faut prendre une chambre qui donne sur le patio (il doit y en avoir 10), sinon si vous êtes à l'intérieur ça fait un peu lugubre! Antonio le réceptionniste est un amour et de très bon conseil! Voila rapport/qualité prix y'a pas […] mieux! Je recommande vivement. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Prima Low budget hotel"
Prima low budget hotel. Locatie op frontstreet en aan het strand ook zeer gunstig gelegen. Kamer voldoet aan de eisen van een 2 sterren hotel. Personeel is zeer vriendelijk/behulpzaam. Nadeel is wel dat er weinig pakeerplaatsen zijn in de nabije omgeving.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location and clean rooms but subpar service."
03/14/14 KaitMul Bar Harbor, Maine
The Sea View Beach Hotel is located on top of a casino overlooking Great Bay Beach. My husband and I walked from Dock Marteen (where the Saba ferry Dawn II makes port) with our bags in less than 10 minutes. While the hotel room surpassed our expectations as far as cleanliness and comfort went, the hotel staff is stretched very thin. We had trouble arranging a taxi to the airport, morning wake up calls, etc, and had to wait in a long line both at check in and check out. The staff seemed extremely competent, but was being asked to do far more than they should have been to appropriately handle the number of guests.
"Rooms with a view."

This is an older well maintained hotel across the boardwalk from the beach. It is directly across from Mc Donald's on front street. We were with a work mission group and opted for the lower priced interior rooms with 2 single beds. Both beds for some reason made a lot of noise when moving on it. You might want to check this out before accepting the room otherwise everything was fine.
"Decent central hotel"
02/04/14 Nattysimps Hamilton, Bermuda
Decent beach front hotel that is budget friendly. It is clean, has AC and wifi in every room. NO COMPLAINTS!! The staff are very friendly. It is centrally located on Front Street/The Boardwalk and is close to everything you need - duty-free shopping, bars/restaurants and is situated next to 2 casinos.
"Excelllent location and service"

Lovely hotel, inexpensive, convenient location both boardwalk & beach is the backyard of this hotel. Casino (next door),shopping,food & sightseeing are all walking distance. Excellent customer service and friendly staff.Nice rooms for all budget. If you are West Indian or From West Indian background use it at this and all local hotels. There is a different price for rooms (cheaper) than if u are from elsewhere. You will need a west Indian address which they usuallly dont verify. So u can use ur relatives info in neighboring islands.
"Good location; Fine accomodations on a budget!"

I stayed at the Sea View hotel twice (three nights total) during separate stays on St. Maarten while visiting other nearby islands. I was looking for a more affordable accomodation, clean and comfortable, centrally located...and that is what I got. My room faced the beach, and was clean and comfortable. The only caveat was the smell of "moth balls" but I had the hotel front desk mask that over with some room freshener...not sure if the smell is there all the time or possibly during the period of my visits, but was addressed upon request. The beach front pretty much closes early evening once the tourists from the visiting ships in the harbor go back to their berths. But there are still a number of restaurants (and shops) open in the area for dinners. Breakfast at the hotel is pretty basic...I'd recommend one of the "earlier opening" beach front resaurants as an alternative. The hotel is located adjacent to, and above the Rouge Noir Casino, up a stairway off of Front Street; no noises heard from below. It faces the beach and is centrally located to the core business area of Philipsburg so there are lots of options for meals, activities or simply enjoying the beach with a beer or two. Staff is friendly and helpful, though I did have to "poke them a couple times" via email to make sure my reservations were confirmed...otherwise no problems with reservations at all. A good place to stay if you're on a budget.

I Stayed there 3 nights. People at the reception are very friendly and helpfull. Free Wi-Fi in room and lobby. Italië works perfect. Great location, naar the beach and near the Frontstreet. Reception made the reservation airport transportation for me.
"Great for the price and location"

This hotel is right along the boardwalk and the beach. If you are not looking for a 5 + * hotel, this would be it. There are many choices for Restaurants within minutes of walking. My daughter and myself stayed here on a Scuba Diving Trip. Rooms are clean, air conditioned, the Breakfast is freshly cooked. Again, don't look for a 5* place, this it is not, but they never pretend to be one either.
"nice stay good location"

I stayed at the seaview for three nights in a double room looking out at the bay,room was very nice ,very clean ,comfy clean bed and bathroom/shower large and clean. good location in philipsburg as beach goes and shopping but at night the town is dead. one minor problem ,I was on the second level where there was a table and chairs in the walkway outside the rooms and people would sit there late at night and early in the morning talking loudly ,other than that i would stay again on my next trip to philipsburg.
"Great for the price"

I could fairly give this a 1 star or a 5 star review, but 4 seems appropriate. You enter through a simple narrow door from the street. The entire hotel is above a casino. The best way to get to the boardwalk/beach is to walk down the street from the front, then cut down an alley. They have a deal with the guy who rents beach chairs, so you don't have to pay the normal $8 or so they usually charge. I didn't experience any problems with water pressure. However, my toilet did overflow. They had it fixed within an hour. Wifi is spotty in the rooms, but great in the lobby. The room was simple, but nice, which is the way I like it. For reasons I can't explain, I got the best room in the house (at $90/night). Room 50: on a corner, with one window facing the beach and the other up the boardwalk. I left the windows open all night and listened to the surf (Philipsburg is pretty quiet once the cruise ships depart). Holland House is a big step up, with a nice lobby, etc. - but it's 2.5 times as expensive. I'm not sure which of the two I'll stay at next time, but this place was a great bargain.
