Only views from Main Channel rooms

We were here 2 nights with a tour group. We had been promised a view of the river and the Boldt Castle, and when we arrived the rooms we were given did NOT have a view of either of these but of the marina - with a big tour boat right outside our balcony. Also, our travel company said that... read more

Just saw this place, it is listing now and on a windy afternoon was bouncing around ominously, and someone with inside information indicated that rumors of it being moved are not taken seriously as it is clearly going nowhere. Not a good thing to have moored next to an operational motel.

Great location at boat tour docks. Had a nice and comfortable room with excellent view of castle and of St. Lawerence (which was literally below my room balcony). Freindly check in. Relaxing stay.

We were there yesterday, closed up tighter than a drum, the building was all blocked off, everything is all stacked up inside, the docks are all closed and the entry is all blocked off. Very disappointed, hope it's just for renovations, great spot, spoke to other folks who were also surprised by it's closing, they didn't know why either! It... More

The boat tour was great. The speaker was very knowledgeable and keep you interested. The boat was very dirty on the inside. Need a good cleaning.

This is a 1 star hotel in a 2 star area. The hotel was clean, but needed some TLC. We had a beautiful view and that is the selling point. It does need some fix up though

It's cool to eat on the floating restraint. The staff was nice and the food was good. The selection wasn't that large or special. Overall it was nice. :)
