“right on the river”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

you must like alot of people around and don't mind boat whistles (blasts) starting early in the morning.
this place is located right on the docks of the uncle sam's boat tours sooooo....you hear all the people talking and the loud boat sounds if you are in your room or at the pool

“Rock and Roll”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012

A different experience. Located on a barge in the St. Lawrence River. Sit by the window and enjoy the passing ships and boats passing by. Food okay. Nice for lunch or dinner.

“view awesome on the St Lawerence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Stayed at Capt Thompson's on a package deal -one night, 2 meals and boat tours of US and Canada+Boldt Castle. Went off season ( best deal and best weather). Place is easy to find, room right on the water, heard waves all night as boats passed by, little porch overlooked the River,clean , pleasant room,not noisy as mostly older folks there off season. Did lack a microwave but had fridge, good TV. Food located across street in a decent place. Totally pleased with entire package. Recommend again.

“Rooms with a view - pricey & mostly up to date”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2012

Centrally located, we parked & walked all over the place. Nice rooms with a view, well appointed & clean, all non-smoking with reminders at the front desk & inside/outside all the rooms. Our toilet ran all night the 1st night, we reported it to the front desk but it wasn't corrected for our 2d night either. The 'best' view comes with the 'channel rooms' so we were sure to ask for that: we saw the big ocean barges & Boldt castle across the water. You can fish from your balcony or the dock at the side, but space is limited if fishing gets popular. The pool & spa were closed after labor day, which seems early for a tourist town that wants to expand its 'shoulder season.' The front desk has posted a daily schedule for the big boats so you can look for them, a nice touch. Overall we were pleased & will return.

“Best "Buffalo Wings" in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

We are from Buffalo, and like to sample how the local resturants compare for Buffalo Wings. This place is amazing, it's like we never left Buffalo. Recommend it highly.
