The boat tour was great. The speaker was very knowledgeable and keep you interested. The boat was very dirty on the inside. Need a good cleaning.

This is a 1 star hotel in a 2 star area. The hotel was clean, but needed some TLC. We had a beautiful view and that is the selling point. It does need some fix up though

It's cool to eat on the floating restraint. The staff was nice and the food was good. The selection wasn't that large or special. Overall it was nice. :)

Great customer service by General Manager Diane. Our room had a picture perfect view of Boldt Castle and the ocean bound ships. Rooms are a bit dated, but the customer service of the whole staff is great! Didn't like how some guests choose to ignore the non-smoking policy. Ramps going to hotel rooms need improved wheelchair access. Great resort to... More

The room was like any other hotel room, but the hotel is located at the end of the main street in Alexandria Bay, so we were near everything! And at the end of our hotel block, there was an amazing view of Boldt Castle. Fabulous view of the water!
