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!

What a wonderful way to stay at the 1000 islands. The motel is literally on the water. You look down form your balcony and see waves. Love the view of Boldt Castle form our room! We stayed in a suite on the main channel. It was fun watching the ships go by our room. You are next door to the... More

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
