The staff are very helpful; the rooms are large and very clean; the ac worked well which was key at this point of my trip; the location was in central Soufriere. I had an overnight on St. Lucia and needed to go from one airport to the other. This was a beautiful part of the island.
The location means you will be followed by panhandlers, sometime for blocks. The hotel is located on the third floor of a building requiring you to climb stairs to get to the lobby. If you've a lot of luggage this may be difficult. The rooms are a bit rough around the edges but generally ok. The road to get to Soufriere is winding and slow. It was an 1 1/2 hours from the airport in the north and about 1 hour to the airport in the south. The total taxi charge for the two rides was $180 (a bit higher than suggested in guide books).
The value: Hotels in St. Lucia are expensive. The view: of the pitons and Soufierie bay Proximity to diamond falls, sulfur springs, etc...although taxis to get there are expensive. If you walk, you will get harangued by bums. You're better off renting a jeep.
The neighborhood: Downtown Soufrierie is not pretty--it's like the bad parts of Philadelphia, and this hotel has bums right outside haranguing all of the tourists. The mosquitos and ants: just a few, but I don't like critters
The personal touch of all the staff. They were friendly and extremely helpful. As a single woman travelling alone the staff were very caring and i felt totally safe and comfortable during my stay. Extremely good value and I would not hesitate to recommend the Downtown Hotel to my friends / family and colleagues.
My room was slightly noisy due to the catholic church bells accross the square, so maybe the doors could be more sound proofed however after one night and ear plugs this did not interfere with my sleep.
