Saint Andrews is a very beautiful OLD city! The wife and I stayed at the St Andrews Motor Inn with my brother and his wife. The room had two queen sized beds. The bathroom was verry verry small. They advertise private decks for all rooms....This is not really correct. Although it is private from the sides, there are spaces between the boards and if anyone is on the deck above or below, you know it, (heaven forbid you spill a drink or something)....Lookout below!!! There was a musty smell in the room. My wife complained of the pillow smelling. They told me when I made the reservation that we were entitled to full use of the pool and breakfast. It looks like breakfast is a muffin and coffee!! There is no phone in the room. The door locks are kind of shadey! The staff were friendly and helpful. I was not asked whether I wanted a smoking room or not when I made the reservation. I am a smoker. There was a sign posted on the door stating "NO SMOKING". There was a sign on the bureau that if you smoked in the room, you would be billed $100. for air cleaning. ?????"!!! We smoked out on the deck, but really,....I would like to see the "air cleaning"!!!!!! " Also, if they charge the credit card without authorization, I would be really pissed. I have read that this has happened before at this establishment.
As for the hotels on Water Street, where all the action is; This is the place to be. Once you get your car parked, you can wander anywhere from here. (In other words......Great Location!). I have never stayed at another hotel in the area, thank god! However, on the way out of town we seen several hotel/motels, which looked much more modern and clean than the one we stayed in. If I had it to do again, I would go find myself a parking spot somewhere on Water St. and do the tour, then get in the car and move on to another location for a hotel. The only things I have good to say about this establishment is that the staff was great, the view was excellent, and the location was great. Definitely not worth the $169.00 it cost for one night for the 4 of us. There were not enough towels in the room and we had to go for more. The person on duty gave us lots.
I am from New Brunswick, and I find that this place and it's rivals on Water St. are tourist rip-offs. I would suggest that people shouldn't pay more than $30. for a room in this building and even less for it's competition on Water St. The "Picket Fence" looked good from the outside on the way bye.
