We had let the Rum Runner know we would be arriving late (touring and wanting to see all that we could in a short week). When we arrived at 10:30pm, there was a note for us with the key. How very convenient. We found the room (#1) very clean and comfortable. In the morning, we spoke with the hostess and... More

We stayed one night at the Rum Runner Inn (wanted three but had to settle for two nights at the Dockside). The Dockside was just ok for the first two nights, but the Rum Runner was excellent. We had an ocean view king room that had an enclosed (glass) balcony.The view was awesome and the room was very clean, brightly... More

We didn't expect much from this little inn, but were pleasantly surprised with the very spacious room-number 4. The service was great, as they were accommodating with all of our requests. The location was fantastic, beds Very comfortable, and surprisingly quiet!

An excellent place to stay in Lunenburg. Well located, excellent staff, helpful and very courteous. A great room for the price. Just what I wanted. Was looking for an economical place with a nice atmosphere and handy to everything. Definitely recommend Rum Runner Inn. The only minus might be that they do NOT serve breakfast at the Inn (just lunch... More

We had a lovely time during our stay in Lunenberg and it was due to the service and delightful accommodations at the Rum Runner Inn. The bed was very plush and comfortable and the screened in balcony facing the water was nice. We will definitely stay here again if we're fortunate to visit the area in the future.

We booked a queen room online and we expected a room with a view as the website didn't say otherwise. However when we arrived (peak season July 2014) and were given our keys we were more than disappointed at our room. It did indeed have a queen bed but the room was very small, one window that faced a building,... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our most concern is keeping our customers happy. I did checked our website again and the queen size bedrooms do not indicate that they have water view. Our queen/double bedroom has water view. This might be the reason for some misunderstandings. I... More

Though the inn room itself was nicely appointed, my husband and I did not have a waterfront view as the website led us to believe we would. When I got on the Rum Runner Inn website in October of 2013, what I saw led me to believe that the rooms overlooked the water. However, there was no panoramic view for... More

Thank you very much for your comment. We are very sorry that your stay with us was not as you expected. Our website indicates very clearly that we have rooms with panoramic water view and rooms without water view. This is also reflecting in the price. The next time, visiting Lunenburg, we would be very happy to show you our... More

Excellent location on the waterfront, great bay views and walking distance to many attractions, shops and restaurants. Comfortable beds. Friendly and accommodating staff. Some rooms offer deck patios with sea views.

Had an overnight stay here in late July 2014. It was a great location and close to all downtown amenities. Our room had a private balcony and overlooked the harbour. Bed and pillows were very comfy. The ladies on the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. Parking in Lunenburg is an issue so we had to park a fair... More
