We spent one evening here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We booked at jacuzzi room through a 3rd party booking service. When we arrived it was Biker Weekend and that room was not available, we were disappointed but the staff worked quickly to remedy the situation and cut our rate in half and presented us with vouchers for both the...

The view is beautiful from this room, a little outdated though. The carpeting needed to be replaced or cleaned, a lot of stains. The bathroom had a lot of hair, and the back of the toilet had not been cleaned in some time. I mentioned this at checkout, and I just got a "shrug". Again, the place is beautiful and...

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment in regards to your recent stay with us. Your comments are being shared with our house keeping and front desk staffs. We are in the process of ordering all new furnishings for a major makeover of our rooms for 2017. That being said, there is no excuse for the lack...

We stayed 2 nights. Very nice and clean. I believe every room had a view of the St Lawrence river. It was the very end of the season for all the attractions but we made it! The tour boats were basically in the back yard. The town was very quite, looked almost deserted. Probably really busy during the summer. The...

This motel has a great location on the water with an unbeatable view from a private balcony of Boldt Castle. The room was clean and comfortable and reasonably prices. It is close to restaurants, boat tours etc.. Will definitely stay there again.

The hotel itself is ok, nothing to write home about but each room has a small balcony overlooking the river. Our room was facing straight at Boldt castle. The view is like something out of a fairy tale! Hotel is clean and staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Location is great - right next door to the boat tour place....

We had reservations at their sister property that is ok, but not near as nice a room or location. We ask to extend our stay and they moved us to here, because they wanted to close the other property for the season. We got a rate from the other property of $61/night for three nights. Great views from our balcony....

This is an older "motor inn." The rooms are clean, But some things need a little TLC. But it's all about the view. The resort is right on the river. Try to get a room in the channel view section. Your room will look right at Bolt castle. Sit on the small patio and enjoy the view. Another plus is...

The location was perfect Couldn't have been any better. Within walking distance to everything. The rooms were well kept and clean. Price was very reasonable. Would defiantly recommend this as a place to stay.

My wife and I spent one night there recently. We had a room on the second floor with the water directly under our balcony. While the hotel is slightly dated, it was very clean and the staff is very polite and professional. The view we had of the castle was top notch. It is centrally located to the downtown area...

Staff was very nice and courteous. Room and beds appeared to be clean. However, it appeared to me to need updating and repair to the wooden decks and outer surroundings. Great Location - directly across from Boldt Castle.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are in the process of ordering all new furnishings and have already excavated part of the parking lot to install a new sewer and water line in preparation of putting new black top down. 2017 will have a new look at Capt. Thomson's.
