Capt Thompson's is right at the end of James Street. Can't think of a better location to celebrate Pirate Days. It's not fancy but is clean and is right in downtown. Very adequate and comfortable. Has a nice pool area and is reasonably priced. Nice diner style restaurant is across the street. If you want upscale, Cavallario's is a very... More

I had read the reviews here before my visit and I was a little concerned about what I'd find. The resort is right at the end of the short strip of shops and was very convenient. The pool was nice but it didn't feel heated. The room did have a bit of a stale odor. The carpet was a very,... More

Capt Thomson's has a fantastic location. It is at the end of James Street near where the Uncle Sam's Boat Tours load and unload. It's very easy to walk down James Street to the various shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Upper Harbor wing of the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. It had a private balcony that...

As mentioned in other reviews, a bit dated, but clean. The bed was comfortable, but the king fitted sheet didn't fit well and always ended up untucked and crumpled under us by morning. Our balcony overlooked the St Lawrence river and I understood why there were signs in the lobby "no diving from the balconies" because it looked like one... More

Rooms all have a private balcony. A little worn but clean and A/C worked well. Caution on Harbor side rooms, Tour Boats are idling right under balconies during the day. Staff were all pleasant and wanted to be helpful. Pool was nice. Would stay again but try to get room on the Main channel.

The rooms are clean...a bit dated, but large and clean. Fridges are in each room. We had a great view of the river with a balcony. The hotel is right next to the US Sam's excursion boats that you can take to all of the castle tours and view the million dollar homes along the River.

I regret I didn't read negative reviews before I booking this hotel. I stayed in main channel, the most expensive room. The only thing good is the view. The room is stinky, dirty stained carpet and chairs. Outdated bathroom. Dead bug on pillow. I found bugs on me twice at night. I didn't sleep whole night afraid of the bugs.... More

We stayed for two nights in a riverview room, with a great view of the St. Lawrence river. The room was very clean, and appeared to have been recently updated. Even though it was fully booked, the hotel was quiet. Saturday night we watched the sunset from our balcony and as the light faded a large heron landed on the... More

Its very nice. The pool is crystal clear, clean and temperate. We had a King bed room overlooking the river with a view of Boldt Castle. The room was very nice. Very clean white spacious bathroom. There were a couple minor stains on the carpet, I assume from someones wine. The room was wonderful overall. The front desk was really... More

The rooms were big, clean and had a fridge. The pool was great for the hot days and was nice - warm with plenty of lounge chairs. Our balcony view of the river and boldt castle was gorgeous!! Bonnie castle across the way plays music which is nice to sit out on and listen to. I'd definitely stay again.
