We were completely impressed with our 1st floor jacuzzi room. The view was breathtaking and so peaceful. We loved it! The bed was super comfy and the staff was exceptional. Everything was walking distance and we had a great time. Cant wait to come back next year! Thank you!

We stayed over Labor Day weekend, as we have previous years, also. Our stays have been to attend Blues in the Bay, however, that was canceled this year, but we chose to go regardless as we enjoy Alex Bay. Each time we have stayed our room has been very clean and well appointed. This year the decorative pillows, etc (unnecessary items) were removed from the room which was to be expected. Every area of our room literally shined. I mentioned that to both Erik and Lisa (front desk) as I wanted them to know housekeeping did an amazing job. I had a phone conversation with Lisa prior to arrival and she was extremely pleasant and helpful. Lisa was as pleasant and helpful when we were on site. She's a real asset to Capt Thomson's! I would also like to give Erik a separate shout out as he was very welcoming and pleasant upon our arrival. He was the same whenever I had contact with him throughout our stay. That being said, every employee we came in contact with were very friendly and if we had a question, they were very helpful. A job well done, by all! We love the location as it is on the water and we are able to park our car and walk everywhere throughout the weekend. Our room was in the Upper Harbor. We love the views from the Upper Harbor. We had a view of the Castle, up the Main Channel, and the Bay. We also enjoyed being on the balcony in the evening, listing to the music that was playing across the water at the "Pointe". That was a real bonus this year as Blues in the Bay had been canceled. Just and FYI - we did not hear the music from inside our room. We highly recommend Capt Thomson's and cannot wait to return next year! Already booked :-)

This is our 11th year staying here and it gets better and better. Everyone from front desk to house keeping are kind, friendly and very helpful. A BIG shout out to the manager Lisa, she goes above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable s possible. Looking forward to next years stay. Thank you again for making us feel like family.

I would not call this a resort but a nice motel. The staff was nice, uninformed on the area, I asked for a restaurant recommendation & was sent to a place that is closed for the season. The Sunset room was WELL WORTH the additional cost. The room faces the lake with a private balcony to watch the ships & sunset. The front desk could have done a better job of telling us about the property, there is a gazebo that we found on our own, a fire pit that we found out from others is part of the “resort” The fire pit should be moved to the pool area this time of year so guests could actually use it. The room is a good size & very clean. There is a love seat with coffee table, a desk & chair, a good size dresser. The mini fridge is the best of any place I’ve stayed. We had no issues with not having fresh towels each day, nor our bed being made. If you want these things you can have them by asking. Alexandria Bay is a bust this time of year. Quite a few places are closed or close by 5:30 or 6 in the evening, which is ok if you’re doing nothing all day but if you tour the area & come back “shopping” is out. Only 2 restaurants & 1 bar/restaurant open for dinner & 1 for breakfast, no place for just a coffee & muffin (on a Tuesday & Wednesday) Capt. Thompson’s is worth the money as long as you get a room with a view. If you can’t then stay at a less expensive place that is just as good. Don’t expect a resort We were in the area the 2nd week of September & stayed a Monday & Tuesday night
