You never have to worry about finding a place to stay on Tortola, whether you need a small room in a hotel for a brief stay before continuing on to another island in the chain as many people do, or if you decide to rent a villa for an extended stay. There is even a spot where you can do some camping if you're up for a little eco-adventure.  As a general rule villas seem to cluster along the west coast, spreading up along the north coast, and to the east to an extent.  When you hit the east coast, closer to the airport, and sweep down to the south, this is where standard hotels become more prevalent, especially in Road Town.  You'll notice that lodgings tend to stay along the coastal areas, and there are few to be found in the interior.
