The Annapolis Royal Inn is a motel in Annapolis Royal and is pretty much your only alternative to the b&b's in town. Since the two pet friendly b&b's were unavailable when we visited, my husband and I decided to stay here with our two dogs. There is no dog fee which is nice but the only room option available to dog owners is the standard room. There were no other visitors so it was a bit annoying not to be able to rent the "deluxe" room for a little more money. They charge $80 a night for the standard room in off season which still seems high for a motel. The icing on the cake was finding out that they do not bother heating the indoor whirlpools in the winter (which is not stated on their website) and they placed us in a room next to the road even though no one else was there.
Now for the really special part - when we walked into our room it was 35 degrees C. I had to look up what that is in F - over 90 degrees! I wish I had taken a picture of the thermostat so people don't think I am crazy but apparently someone had left the heat on high blast for a week without ever checking the room - turning the room more or less into a sauna. Looking back, we should have demanded being put in another room even when they didn't offer to move us. We opened the windows and the room eventually cooled off but we had to walk the dogs for awhile outside until the room was bearable.
And lastly, the wireless internet was not working when we were there. When I told the front desk staff, he said the internet does not reach the rooms near the road anyway, but let me borrow an ethernet cord which was nice at least. We also reported a problem with our sink making noise when the cold water was turned on and apparently someone had turned off the cold water under the sink.
In sum, this place is a headache and overpriced. Make the extra effort to stay in a b&b. The few pros - dogs are allowed for free, there is a large area to run around out back, and the rooms are pretty clean. The beds are so so in comfort. A continental breakfast is included.
