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... More

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... More

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.

Great location, amazing views, and friendly staff. It's in the heart of Alex Bay near all the shops and right next to the boat tours. Would totally stay here again! We stayed in a jacuzzi suite on the main channel. The rooms are a little dated, but they were still clean and lovely.

Check-in: Rude to people in my group, treating them as a child, when confronted was told busses take more rooms than us So your not that special. Rooms: One couple said... More

Great room with a view of Boldt Castle and the ships that travel the St. Lawrence Seaway. We had a package deal and had a nice dinner and glass of wine each. The cruise to Boldt Castle was also included. Fantastic! You have to see what has been done.

This is a nice hotel in an outstanding location. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the main channel and Boldt Castle, which was incredible. The property is a little aged, but pretty well maintained. The price was very reasonable when we visited in September.
