    There was no parking, looked nothing like it showed in pictures. Weathered and worn in a commercial part of Philipsburg where all they want is to sell you something. Cruise ship rip off stop.

    Photos are nicer than reality. You are on the top of a casino. So noise. If you like to listen Bingo calling. That the perfect place. Bed are bad. No Internet available.

    This is a very basic hotel.We knew this and just wanted a one night stay as our flight left a day after our weekly timeshare rental ended. It was fine for that and the price was low

    Location is good and the staff friendly. The room was adequate for a short stay, especially if you plan to be out most of the day.

    This is a "Post-Hurricane Irma" Great Bay Hotel doing its best and getting better. It is currently a good stopover hotel that is clean and friendly. Great bonus is the reasonable $7 cooked breakfast they serve too. Chairs in front right on Great Bay allows you to enjoy the beautiful Great Bay without added costs. Congrats Seaview for being one of the survivors!

    Asked for quiet room with one queen bed. Got 4 single beds with only one side table. Loud people, bingo and banging music on check-in - was told it should quiet down around 10:00 pm. Went on until around 4:00 am. Therefore, I got no sleep at all. No elevator so had to carry heavy bag up and down long steep stairways. Wifi only free in lobby area, otherwise $5/day. No phone in room. Had to request hairdryer and there was no plug anywhere near a mirror. No safe - supposedly available for $5/day, but I didn’t check for one and don’t know how/ where they could securely put one in right away. Air conditioner was noisy and blowing directly at bed. Frig very noisy. Deadbolt lock loose. Light coming in from over and under door, as well as side door to outside which seemed to be unopenable. Bathroom was not clean and smelled of urine. Large rust stain in bottom of toilet. Windowsill trough full of used soap bars and weatherstripping. Tiles cracked/broken. Countertops worn and not cleaned. Walls need cleaning and/or painting. Vending machinesonly source of snacks/drinks) in lobby out of order, no store and it was very difficult to find a restaurant open. This is on a Friday night. Room rate posted in room said $134.50. I paid $154 on Expedia. Expedia rate went down to $134.50 two hours after I booked. I emailed Expedia but got no response.

    The hotel is located in the city and close to rhe beach which is great. But it’s also on top of a casino and you can hear everything that goes on. There is bingo every hour or so and you can hear the numbers being announced loud and clear. You can also hear people outside throughout the night. The wifi connection is very bad and when there are more than 3 people in the lobby trying to connect, it’s almost impossible.
