Without doubt, this was one of the best places my wife and I stayed at during our recent trip 6 week trip to Alaska and Canada. From the courteous and helpful staff, to the quality of the room, to the fabulous setting - this place ticked all the right boxes. A couple of indicators: 1) We originally had a reservation for 3 nights but had to cancel one night at short notice due to a ferry delay. No problem, and no cancellation charge. 2) My wife left her favorite hat at a local restaurant on our last night. When we mentioned that to the driver who took us to the ferry terminal the next morning (at 5am!!!) he said he'd fetch it and post it back to us. We left our credit card details to pay for postage. The hat was at home when we arrived back in Australia, but no charge to our card. Only small things, but it's often those that are the best indicators. The room we stayed in was clean, recently refurbished, generously sized and very well appointed. As noted by other reviewers there were some stairs to navigate that may not suit those with mobility issues, but for the average person, are no problem. We're in our 60-ies and had a couple of fairly heavy bags. Neither my wife nor I found the stairs to be a problem. What sets this place apart is the fabulous location on the old boardwalk. It's full of history and interesting shops, and is a photographer's delight. We were there when the salmon were heading up the adjacent creek to spawn - thousands of them - what a sight.
