The Ship Motel
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in Alexandria Bay
Reviewed 22 January 2013

Group of 12-14 of us will be visiting Alex Bay for a weekend this summer (two years in a row now) and will be once again staying at the Ship Motel. The owner/manager, Dean, is extremely friendly and helpful. Love the fact that it's right in the middle of town, so it's a nice easy walk back to your room after a few drinks. Cannot beat the price for the middle of summer in a tourist town!

stayed there in Sept. 2012. great location, less then 30 second walk to the main street.Clean room and the man at the front desk was very friendly. The price was reasonable and you are very close to all the bars and restaurants. That was our second time staying here .We were pleased.

What a disappointment. Although a two star AAA rating, our bed was awful...sit on the edge and slip right off. Was clean. Room was tired and worn out looking. When I asked about a coffee maker, they indicated I could get it at the office in the morning. What they didn't say was that the office didn't open until after 9.

Room Tip: Make sure you try the bed before you take the room.

The owner was very hospitable and flexible. I like this place because they are very reasonable and make you feel at home. They don't try to overwhelm you with rules and additional charges. This was our second year there and we already booked our room for next year!

We stayed at the Ship Motel with a group of 6 couples for a quick overnight getaway. The price was reasonable, the accomodations were clean,and the location was prime. You're right in the centre of town, steps away from restaurants, bars and the marina. On a weekend, you shouldn't expect it to be a quiet place. A-Bay is a party town, and many people are getting back to their rooms late at night after many drinks. The hotel was clean and adequate. Definitely dated, but the beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked, and our needs were met. Some "upgrading" could make a world of difference at this motel, but I imagine the prices would go up to accomodate the upgrades. The proprietors were friendly and accomodating, and had fresh coffee on in the morning. It felt like a "mom and pop" roadside motel from my childhood - and there's nothing wrong with that. Would definitely stay there again.

The room was average but it was a good price for being right in town. No view, flat screen tv, only coffee in the morning. Accommodating proprietor.

We ended up here after our americade ride. We were welcomed and provided clean rooms at reasonable prices. It's right in the heart of the restaurant/ bar district very close to some of the best. We will make it a staple of the bike run.
