Dirty and loud, skipped soundproofing. No nice hotels here. Just another place cashing in on a building built 50 years ago and not updated. No service amenities. Only thing going for it is it is close to downtown and a liquor store. I would not stay here again if I had my choice.

the room was great with a full kitchen available. When we arrived at 2am from the ferry on our motorcycle we parked out the front of the office (as we do at all hotels) and the guy behind the desk came out and said "You need to move that! the shuttle is coming" there was plenty of room for a...

Basic, low cost lodging within walking distance of downtown and the cruise ships. We found all staff to be helpful and friendly; there is a van that will pick you up at the airport or ferry and drop you off. Driver, an older man from New York, is a hoot to talk to and has good information to share. Hotel... More

I stayed here for 5 days and was very comfortable. I choose this Hotel for walking convince to Downtown area. I was pleasantly surprised on how clean the rooms are and how friendly and knowledgeable staff are. The price is right. The Hotel provides a complementary shuttle to and from the Airport and Ferry. We arrived to the Airport and... More

Very basic older 3 story hotel. non-smoking rm 117 overlooking parking lot and beautiful mountains, tub shower combo and tiny toilet area. Room we chose did not have fridge or micro. Grocery stores nearby. We stayed on first floor because of mobility problems. Physically fit could easily walk to tourist/cruise ships, restaurants and shops. Car parking in downtown area limited....

We stayed here for three nights before getting on a cruise ship. They had a free airport shuttle and even went back to the airport for me to collect my suitcase when it arrived on a later flight. There was free coffee and tea in reception and also in the room. It was unseasonably hot on 14-17 May 2014 and... More

I stayed here for three nights to attend a conference. Very close to the conference center and a very short walk to the main downtown drag. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the WiFi was pretty shabby. Occasionally would work, but often not happening. Good breakfast place downstairs and a pretty basic... More

I was in one of the un-renovated rooms, not suites. Also management has changed so things may be evolving. The location is great, downtown, plenty of uncovered parking (a problem in winter). The room appeared to be from the 60s and could use a facelift. There was no thermostat so one played with a dial located on the baseboard heater.... More

We stayed in for 3 days and they provided airport shuttle service. That is really helpful. The location is close to the main city attraction. It is 5-10 minutes walking distance. The price is affordable compared to the other hotel. The appearance of the whole establishment is ok. It's quite old and can use beautification/paint job. The inside room has... More

We stayed here for eight days and it was ok for what we paid. We stayed on the third floor and our room was a good size but in need of a bit of redecorating as it is bit jaded. There was a kitchenette but it had very little in the way of pots and pans to cook with. It... More
