    • Older travelers

      Located in the heart of Lunenburg.

      The room was cramped and the associated restaurant was mediocre at best. Don't believe what's listed on the menu.

    • Couple

      The close proximity to the sights. The hotel was also very clean and comfortable with a simple current look.

      While our room was comfortable, the description is not 100% accurate.

    • Older travelers

      in the heart of the downtown.

      it was advertised that contenental breakfast was included but this was false advertising as they gave a $3 coupon discount off the beakfast price.

    • Older travelers

      The location was excellent, the staff was very friendly and gave out really good information on interesting locations to visit. One of the staff members even offered to put money in the parking meter for us while we were away.

      The one thing we didn't like was the fact that the restaurant wasn't open for breakfast not even a continental breakfast. We were given a $3.00 discount voucher for the Scuttlebutt, however, we were not happy with this restaurant and would not return the following day. The tea was only lukewarm and when we asked to have the pot heated the waitress said she would if we promised not to sue her! We have travelled to many places and never experienced that tone either. The eggs were suppose to be over easy but were overcooked. The next day we went to the Dockside for breakfast and it was excellent even the tea was hot just like many restaurants we have visited.

    • Single

      The location with the water view and proximity to shops and restaurants.

      No breakfast service. Poor TV cable sevice.

    • Couple

      I would return to this hotel the location is very convenient and near of everything

      I didnt like that we needed to wait to 9 am for check-out because nobody in the reception before 9am, and free breakfast was not served..that's all

    • Older travelers

      Room was clean and very comfortable. Great Location in Lunenburg. We had warned of a possible late arrival and the Staff had arranged for keys to be available for us if we arrived after the latest check-in time. This was the case as our flight was delayed.

      The description on stated that the cost included Continental Breakfast. Rum Runner Inn do not provide a breakfast and we had to purchase this from a local cafe! This added c$25 to the cost of the overnight stay!

    • Family with children

      The location was great. The inn is right by the harbor,across the street from the museum and steps from restaurants. The room was adequately cleaned daily.

      However, for a tacky motel type room with no sound proofing and a leaky veranda, I would say that our room in this less than two star hotel was outrageously priced(close to $200cdn with tax) As well, staff were completely indifferent and unhelpful. The less they saw of you the better. I certainly would've appreciated the location if the accommodations were fairly priced

    • Group of friends

      Great location, comfortable room

      Booking included continental breakfast but the hotel said they no longer provided that and gave us a small voucher ($3 each) for poor quality local cafe instead. We said we weren't happy and asked for a reduction in room rate and they eventually gave $10 off per night.

    • Older travelers

      The unique down home atmosphere was just what we pictured when planning our trip to N.S.

    • Older travelers

      In striking distance of many sand beachs. In the heart of a small town with many tourist attractions. Good retaurants nearby. Room is small and basic but exactly what you need if you are just there to sleep. Two rooms look over the habour and golf course.

      Seasonal rates are a bit steep. But that you pay for convenience. Would not want to be couped up there in the rain. Very much like a newer type motel.

    • Couple

      Even if in the reservation was clearly stated that the breakfast was included, actually thay provided a discount coupon for 3$ for a breakfast in a restaraunt of a "twin hotel down the street". After I pointed out that the breakfast should have been included they discounted 10$, because of a broken chair in the room. However the room was nice, clean and comfortable.

    • Older travelers

      We looked the location and ease f parking.

      We did not understand when booking that the balcony was not for all the guests.

    • Older travelers

      Great location.

      Lack of staff. The first night there was one (very pleasant, helpful) young lady in the ofc until late afternoon. The 2nd nite stay we were told by the ofc girl around 10am that she had to leave before noon to help in the restaurant downstairs. There was no one available in the ofc after that. Therefore no ice, no breakfast coupons as per their advertisement, no one to contact for any reason! The restaurant closed early aftternoon. The place was deserted. Access to the office and the building was open to anyone from the street all night. The price of the accomodation is high for the quality of the Inn. Not sure that we would stay there again.

    • Older travelers

      The location was very good, and the price was excellent

      The advertisement lead me to believe it would have a water front view, all we could see was the side wall of the house next door and the bed was extremely soft and the pillows hard lumps
