Booked this hotel through an Expedia package and was very pleased with the great price and quirky charm. Loved the old glass windows, creaky stairs and panel furniture. My plane trip was delayed by one day due to weather and the James Bay Inn desk clerk arranged with Expedia to give me a refund for the night, which I appreciated.
I requested a quiet room on the top floor and was given exactly what I wanted: room 324 (back of hotel, top floor). It was clean and the plumbing had no problems. My bed was extremely comfortable and I slept well all 5 nights. The wireless connection was reliable. I enjoyed the Seafood Chowder from the downstairs pub for dinner. The service at the restaurant was friendly and efficient (thanks, Lisa!). It snowed the day I arrived, but the room was warm and comfortable.
I agree with the other reviewer who said this is *NOT* a Westin --- if you require a modern setup with starchy linens, chocolates on the pillow, an elevator, coffee maker and combo hair dryer/telephone in the bathroom, go elsewhere! If you are looking for something a little different, though, the James Bay Inn is a unique place to stay.
