Comfortable room facilities and great location, terrific welcome at check in, friendly & helpful staff. Deserves it's status of 1 of 6 in town! Would recommend! Ask for room 7, it has a great corner aspect and glazed balcony! Room had shower rather than full bath, but that's being picky !

Centrally located on the Lunenburg waterfront and adjacent to the Fisheries Museum, the Rum Runner Inn was a nice choice for our 1 night stay. The room was modern and comfortable and the staff friendly. The restaurant downstairs was a good place to chow down. The Inn has no parking although street parking was available. WIFI was very strong but... More

The water-facing rooms are wonderful. The people who run the Inn are helpful and friendly. The location is great and Lunenburg is definitely worth the visit. There are great seafood restaurants nearby. You can walk to everything and the place is UNESCO Heritage Site cute.

Our second visit to this amazing spot. Great view of the harbor. Easy to walk anywhere in the olde town. The host/owner is always very helpful. Were there before peak season so the restaurant wasn't open, but there is lots of options nearby. Will definitely come back.

Nice inn friendly staff and very helpful about restaurants since it was pre pre season and theirs was not up and running yet...would like to visit again . If a view is important to you ask for the balcony rooms a little more expensive and the view is the only difference...we aren't in our rooms much so that was not... More

Centrally located in Lunenburg. Room very clean, a few with good view (not mine). Accepted pets. Host Eva very helpful. Easy to walk everywhere. Downside to hotel is the parking. Need to park on street, but need to move the car in the morning. Was lucky enough to find parking right outside the door.

I stayed here just for the 1 night, but I wish I'd planned to stay here longer. The room was clean, staff were very pleasant and helpful, and the location is great. For the price, you just can't go wrong!!!

We stayed in room 1. When we arrived, I had planned to go for a walk but instead fell asleep as the bed was so comfortable! Spacious room, harbor view from the side window, quiet (we could barely tell anyone else was staying there), smooth check in and out. Central so we were mere steps from historic sites, horse carriage... More

We spent our last 2 nights in Nova Scotia at the Rum Runner in Lunenburg on Sept 17 & 18 and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

We booked our trip on a budget, and chose the least expensive rooms at the rum runner and we're pleasantly surprised. Very clean, quiet, comfortable beds, they also provided a playpen for our daughter to sleep in. Great location, right on the main strip. The upgraded rooms had balconies overlooking the water, the looked beautiful!
