I remembered that restaurant fondly from years ago but when I recently went back I discovered it closed and abandoned. When we dined nearby and I asked about it I was told it has been sold and will be moved to a location farther west.

We were fortunate enough to get a wonderful room as a result of a cancellation! Second floor with the Boldt castle just across the river. I must say this is an old style motel but it is very clean, and the staff is friendly. My husband has a back problem and is sensitive to poor quality mattresses. Our beds needed... More

We could see the large ships on the river and all of the smaller boats etc. also liked that we could park our car... More

The resort is right in the middle of all the action. Beautiful little hotel, great views. Close to all sightseeing opportunities, the boat tours, the souvenir shops, fun restaurants.

This resort is right on the St Lawrence River in Alexandria Bay. Everything was right within walking distance of our room which was very convenient. The room was clean and there is a small porch outside to enjoy the view. The desk staff were courteous and helpful.

Wife took me on a romantic weekend getaway package to the Thousand Islands. Old hotel but clean and in a great location to Uncle Sam Boat Tours and Riley's on the river.

Probably the best place to stay in Alexandria Bay. The hotel is in walking distance to the town and ferry service to Boldt Castle. We had a nice balcony and had a view of the harbor and Boldt Castle.

We spent three nights at Captain Thomson's. We enjoyed the private balcony with a view of Boldt Castle as the docks of Bonne Castle and Riversedge. We were near the dock where the tour boats took people on tours of the Thousand Islands, Boldt and Singer Castle. Large ocean going boats also passed by. It was centrally located to everything...
