We recently stayed at the Lakeview Inn. I recommend using Star Ferry as you are less than a block from the hotel. Lakeview had a staff person to meet us at the dock and helped us with our luggage to our room.
We went with the lowest price room and were pleasantly surprised. Granted we did not spend very much time in our room. Our room exited to a balcony that overlooked the pool. We did use the hot tub twice. The pool area was very clean. My only complaint is that if anyone awakes early and we like to sleep in until 9:00 or 10:00 a.m., you can hear what the person in the balcony area is saying.
We had an appetizer in the sports bar (don't waste your time) and ate at Goodfellows for dinner (was great). The continental breakfast was good.
My advice to anyone considering staying on the Island, is that the property dates back many years. It probably was plush in it's day but not necessarily in today's world.
If that is a concern to you, stay off the island. I liked not having to worry about what time the last ferry went back. One night we went to a tavern to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs and stayed to listen to a band. It was a very fun evening.
