A co-worker and I stayed at the St. Andrews Motor Inn from March 26-28, 2007. There is a fabulous marine biological station in St. Andrews (this is the draw for off-season travel to St. Andrews). We admittedly stayed there because it was cheaper than the Fairmont Algonquin, which had decent winter rates, but this came in over $30 per night cheaper. The rooms are waterfront, all of them, and we were each given a non-smoking room without any trouble. The view of the ever-changing tides is mesmerizing even for those of us who take it for granted! The front desk was empty when we arrived, and though we were guaranteed an early check-in, we were denied it due to the rooms not being clean. The staff was apologetic, and offered a smoking room to us, but we decided to just come back later. There was a minor glitch with the bill, as they charged me double the quoted rate, but it was resolved without incident. The room was spacious, with two beds, a desk, nightstands, dressers, a couch that pulls out to sleep more people and an armchair. The bathroom was basic and clean. Each room also has a private balcony overlooking the water. The rooms need some updating, as noted in other reviews, but they were perfectly suitable for our needs. One disappointment was the difficulty of communication. We didn't have wireless internet, which isn't a big deal, but also the phones wouldn't call out, leaving us without any contact with the outside world. The front desk did allow us to use their phone (and stated they had been having this trouble for awhile), but it was a frustration that should be noted.
