Nice, modern, clean hotel located right downtown. Flat screen, wifi, queen bed in period reproduction furnishings. Only 39 rooms so not noisy nor "busy". Good, inexpensive restaurant downstairs next to the casino. $59 for the night including all taxes!? Bonus!

All amenities right up to date in an older building with antiques everywhere. Very pleasant staff and we paid only $84.00 per night. I would have given it a 5* if breakfast had been included. Strange as there is a good restaurant in the building - we ate there twice.

Found this hotel on trip advisor, and glad I did. On the outside it doesn't look like much. I mean it still looks neat b/c it's looks like a boat but inside is very nice. Still has that old look but with all the amenities you need. No microwave in our room but who cares. Right downtown so nice to... More

Very clean hotel. The place looks like new but with a vintage feel. Friendly staff. We checked on booking,com and were able to negotiate a cheaper rate. Good value. Our room is decorated turn of the century with a poster bed. Really well done.

Hi Kevin, Thank you for the compliment on the overall cleanliness of the hotel.. The housekeeping staff work very hard to keep everything clean and take pride in their work so it is nice when guests notice. The newly completed renovations work well with the heritage theme to create a rustic but modern feel. I hope you will visit us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay here. The antiques make the rooms unique. The price was great. Nice quiet place. The outside of the hotel looks great at night when all lit up! I would definitely recommend a stay here!

Thank you for your kind review. We have rooms that are finished both with antiques and without, in case antiques don't appeal to you. When the hotel is lit up at night you can really see the stern wheeler style of the exterior. We hope you will visit us again on your next trip north. More

Room we had was basic but nice. Comfortable king size bed. The room was small though and anytime you sat at the desk you blocked anyone from moving by you. The bathroom didn't have a fan and the shower was so low you had to duck to get any water on your head. Staff were very pleasant and the hotel... More

Rob975, Yes the standard rooms are not large and with a king size bed are a bit cramped. All of the hotel rooms are on a central air circulation system so the fans are drawing air all the time but are quieter than regular bathroom fans. We do appreciate you bringing the water pressure issue to our attention so we... More

This hotel is right in the middle of town, the rooms are lovely, all different and mine had some lovely old furniture in it. The staff were really nice and helpful as well. The view out the window was not very special.

Hilary; thank you for taking time to write a review about your stay. Unfortunately we can't do anything about the view from the hotel but we are only two blocks away from a beautiful, river side walking trail. I hope the interior of the hotel and service provided by the staff made up for the lack of scenery. More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Parisian Room. We were astounded by how nice the room is, especially for the price.It had everything! A huge and very comfortable king bed with amazing sheets and blankets. A jacuzzi tub big enough for two. A walk out balcony with patio furniture so you can sit and relax outside.

Thank you for staying with us and providing a review. The Parisian is a beautiful suite, as are the other three, but it is the only one that has the jetted tub. It is so nice when guests check into one of the luxury suites they are pleasantly surprised. We do appreciate feed back from our guests to know if... More

After reading the reviews I figured it was a great place to stay. The rooms are unique and very clean. The hotel has a very homey feeling to it. We had arrived at 2am and our keys were ready for us as we walked in so all we had to do was hit the hay. We had one of the... More

Thank you for taking time to provide us with your experience during your recent stay. I am happy to hear that check in was quick and easy for you as you were probably tired arriving at that time of morning. The housekeeping staff will be pleased to know their efforts don’t go without notice. More

Over whelmed by the attentiveness, warmth and atmosphere of this hotel and every employee that we encountered. Our room was furnished in a "gold rush era" theme, as is most of the hotel aparently.
