Walking distance to town, just across the famous foot bridge. This place is quite reasonable to stay considering you are near EVERYTHING. Just park your car and walk everywhere. The rooms are old but clean and comfortable. You can rent a fridge for just $5 a day and there is a coffee maker and AC in the room. They have... More

We recently stayed for one night. The main reason we tried Cap'n Fish's over our usual hotels was the cost and location. How can you beat a waterfront hotel on the harbor for $99 a night. The rooms are what you would expect, very basic but very clean. The location is outstanding. You are a 30 second walk to the... More

We had a harbor view room which was great. Best room rate for a harbor view. Room was very clean and comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Close to the footbridge to walk to town for shopping,very good restaurants and boat trips. Will definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Can't say enough good about it. The rooms were very clean and big. The staff was very helpful with any questions we had. We rented three rooms and they were all very comfortable. We had three dogs with us and it worked out great. The view was amazing. There is a restaurant on... More

We paid for the Effiency Suite...way beyond our expectations! I would recommend this to anyone. It is very large and very clean . We stayed in 52. 2 double beds, and a full kitchen! The couch is also a pull out. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly, especially the cleaning staff. The view was... More

Overall a fantastic stay. The rooms are very clean, although a bit dated. The staff is fantastic, and they are very pet friendly. Wonderful harbor views and close to everything. Would stay again without hesitation.

We have stayed here 3 times. The rooms are very clean and staff are friendly. It could use some updating but the rate is very reasonable. The hotel is right on the harbor with great views. You can walk over the footbridge to the restaurants and shops; quick walk.

It was a short walk (10 minutes) from Cap'n Fish to town via a foot bridge. Lot's of shops, restaurants and pubs in town. We had a nice room with beautiful views of the harbor. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at this hotel again.

We just spent a few days back at Cap'n Fishs for Windjammer days. Plenty of places to sit out and enjoy the views of the harbor and watch the boats. Rooms were comfortable and clean. It was also nice to come back after being out for a few hours in the morning to have them cleaned and not waiting all... More
