We stayed in the "cottage", which is actually a funky house adjoining the hotel property. We were surprised to discover that we had two bedrooms, full bath, dining room, living room and full kitchen at our disposal - all for far less than the price of a typical hotel suite. Parking included to boot! Having spent time trying to find accommodation in the area for two couples travelling together, I can safely say that this is a rare find. You could easily add another couple or kids using the sofa bed in the living room. The location is walking distance to the Inner Harbour, Beacon Hill park and Dalles Road. A full grocery store and other services (don't miss Serious Coffee!) is two blocks away. Hotel staff was very helpful and pleasant. The hotel gives guests a discount in their restaurant, and the food is good. Watch for the '3 course dinner special', a good deal that becomes exceptional when the discount is applied. JBI obviously has a good number of regulars that frequent both the pub and the restaurant. We enjoyed the whole experience. Don't get the cottage for the view - there is none - and be aware that it backs on to the hotel parking lot, so don't imagine yourself sitting in the back yard. The front yard, however, was enjoyable! JBI is not a luxury hotel, but if you're interested in atmosphere and want a clean, friendly place at a reasonable price in a great location, you've found it.
