“First Choice for Alexandria Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

Lucky for me that I can travel any day of the week. This hotel was very difficult to find a room on the weekend. I chose two nights during the week, and the rate was a lot better than the weekend rate. Called for a reservation because the online reservation system did not have a room available. Reservation agent was courteous and friendly. Check in was easy and the room was ready at 12 noon. Room #449 was fine. This room is upstairs and has a harbor view. River view and castle view are much better views and more expensive. The room was clean and comfortable. It makes me happy when everything in the room is in working order. I liked parking the car and walking to all the attractions, shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: I suggest calling the resort directly and asking for the view you prefer.

This was our 8th Labor Day weekend attending the annual Blues in the Bay . We always reserve a main channel room to take advantage of the views. On past stays, we were always impressed with the cleanliness of the room. This year was different. Our bed sheets were stained and covered in hair from the previous guest. The balcony was covered with dead bugs and cobwebs. It had not been broom swept for quite some time. We cleaned the balcony ourselves. The overall quality has slipped. Over the course of our 4 day stay, the pool bottom was covered with sand and never cleaned. The pool deck was covered with leaves at the far end and table umbrellas were piled in a heap. Come on owners! Walk around your property and bring your resort back up the standard we saw in years past! Kudos for adding the room fridge and hairdrier this year.

Just returned home from a beautiful weekend in Alex Bay. My wife and i found this resort property to be more than we expected . clean rooms,sparklingpool & surprisingly quiet,
though located next to tour bout docks.Front desk service was very friendly and accomodating. No car needed here, walked to everything. What a Gem.

Room Tip: ask for upper harbor building or channel building for best views

We stayed at this property in conjunction with a fire fighters' conference being held locally in Alexandria Bay. Our travel committee chose the venue and did a great job. The view from our room.....looking across the Saint Lawrence Seaway to Boldt Castle ... was simply spectacular. The property had ample parking and friendly staff. The room was clean enough and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would return to this property if the situation arises.

If you want to stay in a nice hotel within walking distance of all that A-Bay has to offer, this is the place to stay. Rooms are clean and well decorated. Staff is extremely friendly. Rooms are priced according to view. All have free wifi, balconies, refrigerators, and coffee makers. They have the "I forgot it" supplies on hand. (ie. razor) Parking is right by your room. Handicapped rooms are available. Uncle Sam's Boat Tours is right next door. There are several places to eat right down the block. No place to get a quick breakfast close by. For the price, a continental breakfast would have been nice.

Room Tip: Harbor View Rooms are a bit more expensive.

We enjoyed our stay at Captain Thomson's Resort. The room was clean. Friendly staff. We stayed two nights in June. The view of Boldt Castle from the balcony was awesome. The balcony was also a great place to watch the sunset. The resort is very convenient to Uncle Sam's boat docks, restaurants and shops. We drove the car only once and that was to see a movie at the local drive-in. We will definitely return for another visit.

We stayed for the initial 2 nights that we had reservations for, we were having such a wonderful time that we extended our stay an extra night. Had a fantastic view from our room amd spent many ours on th balcony watching the ships. Had a direct view of Bolt castle. Hotel is convienent to everything, we parked and walked everywhere. Staff is extremely helpful and courtious. Room was clean, had a refrig and coffee maker. No iron or ironing board or microwave. We are already planning to go back next year. take the 2 hour international boat tour and make sure you get off on Bolt Castle. Worth the trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river, and don't let whats available on the web fool you, call the hotel d...
