I was in town for a wedding and my friend booked here. Great location to everything and I just parked for the weekend and never used my car again.

Anything you may need, questions asked, he had the answer.... More

Smell? Musty. Carpet? Stained. Bedding? Throwback to the 80's and after just a peek at the mattress, I decided to stop. We pulled into the Ship's parking lot and it was extremely tight with room for just one car per room and if you have additional vehicles, you have to find parking elsewhere. Upon entering our room, we were taken... More

We have been staying here for 10 years, & will continue to go back. Due to some health issues the location is perfect distance for walking. Dean & the rest of the staff treat us like we r family. Thanks for another great year.

On the evening of Oct 4, 2013 I was heading to The Bay. I go frequently but rarely stay overnite. Heading on I-81, 2 miles south of the American-Canadian border I hit a large buck & wrote off my vehicle. Altho I killed a beautiful animal, I walked away untouched, thanx to driving a heavy vehicle. The local wrecker brought... More

I love The Ship! You're literally walking distance from every attraction in Alexandria Bay. Pat Simpson and Dean Honeywell are well versed on restaurants, tours, local attractions, and the rich history of this beautiful part of the world. Mr. Simpson is also a licensed NY fishing guide if you wish to go out for the best small mouth bass fishing... More

We come back here every year on motorcycles with a group and Dean has been extremely accommodating. They are located smack Dab in the center of the action and walking distance to all the nightlife. The rooms are very reasonably priced and have always been clean. We will be back and look forward to seeing Dean and his staff.

A great central location, interesting desk manager (Dean), and fair rates for this resort community. The manager knew all about local history in the 1000 Island region in Alexandria Bay since the 1950's, and enjoyed sharing stories with my husband.
