I arrived to find a friendly staff person ready with my room key. My room was beautifully clean and ready for my arrival. Comfortable bed; spacious bathroom with nice shower/tub. The location is great, as it's just one hill up from the wharf. I had a side room, so was sad I couldn't access the deck overlooking the docks (those... More

Rum Runner in is a small hotel - I believe 13 rooms - with several of the rooms overlooking the UNESCO listed Harbor. We stayed in Room 5 which has one of the best rooms in the Inn with a semi-private deck with an expansive view of the town and the harbor. Do not expect a Marriott. This is a... More

The food and service were both excellent ! I had sushi and then came back the second evening for fish and chips. Loved the view while dining on the deck and the executive chef was most welcoming as he asked for my opinion on the meals. This restaurant and hotel is located right by the water and the sights of...

Room is clean and adequate, nothing special, but the view of the harbor made up for that. We had a great glass-enclosed balcony, and it was fun to sit and watch what was going on at the harbor. This inn does not have any common space and does not serve breakfast. All in all a good stay.

I recently went to the Rum Runner restaurant for dinner with a friend and we were thoroughly impressed! The new chef gives options very different to anything in the area. The spicy Salmon sushi was perfect and full of flavor. While the chicken masala (Indian dish) was excellent! A beautiful layout, good portions and delicious. I would certainly recommend to... More

Stayed one night then transferred to Smugglers Cove Inn due to lack of vacancy available. The room here was nice, the view was great, but the air conditioning wasn't working properly and during the hot, humid night we stayed, we really missed it! Staff was very accommodating and friendly, ( helped to set us up at the Smugglers Inn for... More

We had a well appointed, large room that was tastefully decorated. Great location within the UNESCO site. Views of the harbor. Everything is within walking distance. Try to book rooms 5 or 6, so you have access to the waterfront balcony. I experienced two negatives which caused me to give this hotel a 4 instead of a 5: light breakfast... More

We didn't stay at the inn, we just went to supper at the restaurant. I walked in as one of a party of 13 people without a reservation. As a past server, this is one of my worst nightmares. However, the staff never made us feel like we were an inconvenience or they weren't prepared for us. There was a... More

Well worth the little extra cost because of the location. Front desk help was excellent. I did not eat at the restaurant and they don't serve breakfast. They gave us discount coupons for down the street-very good food but small selection. Off street parking was a pain to feed the meter. Rooms were very nice. Comfortable and look out on... More

The staff made our stay very comfortable. The room was great, clean, and comfy. Right by the waters with a great view. Convenient location that's on one of the downtown streets with lots of restaurants, shops, and close enough to the waters for attractions.
