We stayed at the 1000 island hotel in Clayton the night before. That was a wonderful 4 star hotel and cost 10$ a night more for a king Waterview room. This is a small queen room with a balcony in the sun looking out at a empty dock. The room is very old, with overhead lighting, uncomfortable chairs, and only... More

We had a room with a view of Bolt Island and the river . Private balcony was nice. The staff were very helpful parked there while taking a Island cruse the next day. Glade we payed extra for river view you can walk to evey thing in town from the hotel.

As the title says it's a little old but nice. Staff is nice. Very clean but I couldn't ask for a better view. Walk in the front door and can look out at the bay. I would have to say if you want peace and relaxation avoid . Pirates weekend!

Location! Location! Location! Very clean Hotel with wonderful views of Alexandria Bay. Close to Restaurants& sightseeing. You look right at the Boldt Castle! A step back in time. Would definitely go back! Balconies look at on the Bay! If you have mobility problems ask for 1s floor!

Calling this a resort is a bit of a stretch. More like a motel with a pool. But it does have a great location, next to Uncle Sam Boat tours and directly on the seaway. My room had a balcony that overlooked the seaway. I had a great view of Boldt Castle. This is nothing fancy, but it is very... More

Hi, It was our sudden decision to visit 1000 Islands. We visited on week days. We had this property in mind with its tag "resort". Few observations: 1. Great location. It is at a perfect place with walking distance to downtown and boats. 2. Don't go by name. It is simply a motel and not a resort. Just having swimming... More

We have stayed at Captain Thomson's every time we come to A Bay, nearly every year. Our experience has always been very good. The staff have always been polite, and we have always loved the rooms with a view of Boldt Castle. Try and come during the week, as any resort area gets very busy on weekends, and the noise... More

The GM (Chuck Palmatier) was very accommodating despite a very late request by myself for a room and the fact that they were extremely busy with tour buses arriving etc...understandably it's this hotel's busy season. In fact, it's the town's busy season. The room was clean and comfortable. The view was very nice. The staff was polite and helpful but... More

Everyone we dealt with , the manager (Chuck Palmatier) the front desk clerk, Megan, the housekeeping staff and others were all very friendly, and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and well kept. The view is like none other at the Bay. It's location lends a wonderful view of Boldt Castle and all the boat activity from ships to speed boats.... More
