My husband and I stayed at Capt. Thomson's for 3 nights and we couldn't be happier with the resort. Everyone at the front desk were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was located on the 2nd floor by the pool area. Housekeeping did a terrific job and there were plenty of towels, soap, shampoo, etc. From our balcony we could... More

We stayed at Captain Thomson's Resort the third week of September. Everything there was perfect. Our room was on the 2nd floor, main channel, which had a terrace directly over the St. Lawrence River. It was so peaceful and relaxing to sit there, watching both small pleasure boats and huge barges go by, and listening to the constant lapping sound... More

Must stay in main channel room to get wow factor. Balcony extends over water so feels like you are on cruise ship. Boldt castle across from hotel and freighters pass by your window all day. Don't let exterior fool you. Rooms are remodeled and very comfortable. Nice to have Uncle Sam's boats and village right there.

Our first trip to Alexandria Bay to celebrate our recent anniversary. Hotel is located right on the main channel and within walking distance of shops, craft stores, speciality stores (yummy fudge from Lil River) and a good selection of eating establishments. Rooms are dated but nice and clean and well taken care of. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Recommend... More

Capt. Thomson's is a good location for being able to walk to anyplace in town without driving. They are connected [not physically] to Riley's restaurant and I think Uncle Sam's boat tours so it could be a complete package for some. The rooms are okay but not top of the line for sure. Most rooms have a view of the... More

The hotel was very nice. It was a little old but very clean and an excellent location. We were right on the river across from Boldt Castle. We were very happy with the price. The staff was very helpful as well. I would recommend this hotel to others traveling in this region.

This lodging is adjacent to everything that you will need to enjoy Alexandria Bay. We had a queen on the second floor with a view of the harbor and Boldt Castle from the balcony. Up the street was an array of restaurants, all within walking distance. The boat trips leave right from the base of the hotel. The room was... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and it's a wonderful location, right ON the water's edge and directly across from Boldt Castle. I hadn't been to Capt. Thomson's for almost 20 years and the place was exactly the same. We even got REAL door keys! The room interior was very basic but a nice size and included... More

Have looked forward to going to A-Bay and staying at Capt Thomson's for a long time and finally got to do so. The views and locations from most of the hotels in Alex Bay are wonderful and Captain Thomson's didn't disappoint. We had a first floor room facing Boldt Castle and that view is just incredible! To be able to... More
