Very clean, great flooring and furniture. Great self serve breakfast selection. Someone had done a fine job remodeling. Very surprised. Would totally stay here again. Pool is clean. Dining area adjacent to lobby appears professionally decorated. Ok for couples, great for families.

Older hotel, rooms were clean and front desk was helpful. Must say it was rather noisy so if you are a light sleeper best book something else. There is traffic noise and also ferry noise. There was nothing near to go for a meal and taxis do not like to come here as it is out of there way. They...

This could be a good choice for pre-cruise stays but definitely not for us. This is a pretty bare bones older budget hotel. No elevators, worn but clean room (except for heat/a/c unit with tons of dust). Our biggest negatives were 1. the really offense and pungent air freshener that gave us headaches and 2. the terrible beds - a...

Reasonably priced hotel. Front desk gentleman was very welcoming and helped point out local attractions as well as providing us with a town map. The room was clean, as were the grounds. Parking is good. However... if you're a light sleeper as I am, I do not recommend staying here. We knew we were right beside the ferry terminal but...

We booked a cruise one year in advance and decided to book a room at Scottish Inn so that we could board the ship rested. Two weeks before our cruise, we decided to drive from Oklahoma early, and wanted to stay 2 more nights, but the current price was so high we stayed at a different hotel. When we went...

Neat little place for the price. It's a really old hotel that's been nicely updated right by the ferry landing. The lobby area is especially nice. Rooms aren't fantastic, but they're clean with no carpet. We had a dirt-dauber (wasp) in our room, but we handled it. Beds are hard, but perfectly fine for a night's stay before a cruise....

We stayed here the night before our three back to back cruises and the night we arrived back in port from the last cruise. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and had our room ready for us earlier than we expected. Very clean and roomy hotel rooms. The cruise parking is in the front of the business and they have...

This was the perfect spot to stay the night before the cruise. It was clean and the staff were friendly. The room was plenty big and even had a microwave and refrigerator. Plenty of closet space and a nice looking pool. The bathroom was clean and the shower was hot with excellent water pressure. The bed was a bit on...

We stayed here the night before our cruise and the night after the cruise. It was ok for one night each time. The place is off of the beaten path and there is nothing close by in way of eating places. The guy checking us in each time was a bit odd and not really very helpfull. The person checking...

This hotel was clean and simple. It had a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and flat screen TV. Our room's bathroom had updated tile. The shower had good water flow. The mattress is laying on a box. It didn't leave my back in kinks. The grounds were well kept and the pool looked nice and attractive. It is the last...
