After a busier than normal week my partner and I decided to get away for a night. We ended up in Alexandria Bay - I had never been there before and he hasn't been there in over 20 years. What a little gem. Captain Thomson's Resort was just what we needed. The bed was comfortable; the washroom was large and... More

The location was the best. Room was clean, but smelled and is in serious need of updating. They should spend some of their profits on redecorating and repairing the rooms. Shower was half the size of a normal shower. We had some very rude people in the room next to is blaring their country music 24/7. My biggest complaint is... More

You can't say enough about the location of the hotel. Everything is right there. It sits at the end of town right next to Uncle Sam's Boat Tours. Just park your car and walk everywhere. We were in the main channel right across from Boldt Castle and what a beautiful view. The hotel is old but we expected that. It... More

We stayed July 9, 2014. Had room 105 on 1st floor corner room, with 2 picture windows. Great views of Bolt Castle and Seaway. Saw large ships going up St. Lawrence Seaway. Balcony right on Water. Clean Rooms and good beds. Excellent stay. Owners very accommodating. Tour Boat right next door.

A rare spontaneous getaway. While on a business trip to the 1000 Islands for our lil' company, Chef William Creations, we decided to celebrate Father's Day, our company's 2nd anniversary, AND our 30th wedding anniversary. We had the MOST relaxing wonderful stay at Captain Thomson's Resort. Everything was stellar starting with the gals at the front desk. We were shown... More

Had a fantastic time in Alexandria Bay. Scenery absolutely gorgeous! Stayed at Captain Thompson's Resort. My room was on the channel side, first floor. Left my channel door open at night and fell asleep listening to the waves. The town is so quaint and the people so friendly. Planning to return next year.

Very friendly and helpful staff in office, and very knowledgable about local attractions. Our room was very clean, bathroom immaculate and beds neat, inviting and comfortable. Gorgeous view from balcony- directly across from Boldt Castle. The sunset, the castle, the water, the islands and boats, (the ducks swimming by), were all too pretty for words. Very quiet and peaceful at... More

The room was fairly clean although we found old food in the refrigerator. The TV remote was under the bed. There was a nice view out on the balcony. I don't know what else to say because I really did not like Alexandria Bay. I have been hearing people talk about it for years and now that i have been,... More

We stayed here overnight in early July 2014. The view of Boldt Castle from our room was gorgeous! The room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and it was a short walk to the boat tours and restaurants. We found the pool area relaxing after a hot day touring the castle. We will definitely be returning to Captain Thomson's... More
