Nice little motel. Very clean. Well kept up. Rooms were a little cold temperature wise. "Heat" seemed to just be blowing air. But maybe that is seasonal? Great location. Park the car and leave it there. Felt very safe. Would recommend. Nice place to sit outside your room as the sun sets, have a drink and unwind. Close to Cdn...

Quaint, but clean and adequate for a few day stay. We could walk to anything. The boat tours to the castles were an say walk away. The town was nice with shops and eateries. If you're looking for a no-frills place to stay, this is it.

Perfect location. Walk to anything in the bay. Dean was the consummate host. Would stay there again, no question. Clean, convenient, reasonably priced. What more can I say? If you are staying in Alex Bay, look no further.

Excellent downtown location - close to everything. Marinas, food and shopping less than 2 blocks away. Rooms are clean and well maintained - dated but in good condition. Staff is outstanding - everyone is very friendly and helpful. We would go there again.

One room left when we arrived and did not have any reservations... We took the room and had the best few days with my partner.. We were able to get to where we wanted without a car and got to do a lot. Can't wait to go back to Alexandria Bay again and hope to make the trip this summer......

This was a great spot to stay. You can park your vehicle for your stay as everything to see and do is within walking distance. Great room. Ice and coffee available in the office and Dean makes you feel at home. We will certainly be returning. :)

This motel is PERFECT for a quick getaway. No frills, but clean and awesome location! Central to everything, coffee available each morning, great host and the room had all that we needed. I would recommend this place to anyone who isn't looking for high, end, just wants a great price and convenience.

We have been here twice. Both times were Great! Wi-Fi was not very good, but if you sat outside, you could get it. Very Clean, Great for the price! It was so convenient to the boat rides and tours........walking distance to gift shops and restaurants, but I wouldn't go the restaurant across the street, bar/grill........Expensive and not very good food!...

I stay here every summer over Labor Day week for an awesome blues festival put on by the local Chamber of Commerce. The Ship is right downtown off the main drag, James Street, and couldn't be more convenient. Literally all local attractions are walking distance, eliminating a need for a rental car. It's clean and well maintained and the staff...

We stayed here 7 days along with another couple. It is a great location next to the active and busy Alexandria Bay down town. We would stay here again. There is no pool or breakfast but all the coffee you can drink.
