Great Location!

Posted 26-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, location, location. Rates are competitive .
Cons: It is what it is, a dated guest house albeit comfortable and well located.
Location: Inner Harbour, Beacon Hill Park, Dallas Rd, coffee houses, eateries, downtown shopping, museum, churches, buses.
Perfect location. Easy walking distance to public transportation, shopping and restaurants in downtown area. Located in midst of quaint, historic James Bay with it's picturesque 19th century residences. The Inn was built in 1911 and reflects the design and amenities of that era. For example, there is no elevator, it's a three story walk-up. The on-site restaurant offers decent food at a reasonable price.

Comfortable and walkable

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Pros: Cheerful and comfortable
Cons: One has to ask for hairdryers at the front desk.
Our stay at the hotel was very pleasant. It is cheery and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was quite good with many options on the menu. It is located in a neighborhood which is walkable to the waterfront and other attractions

Safe, Comfortable, Friendly

Posted 11-Apr-2015
Pros: I like the friendly staff.
Cons: I don't have any improvements. I enjoy stepping through the door, enjoying the visual pattern of the carpets.
Location: Close to everything.
We've stayed here over 10 times in the last few years. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless. And the area is safe. I always enjoy the unique rooms. The James Bay Inn is located a few blocks from the Inner Harbour - - and easy stroll.

Clean, old but well maintained facility

Posted 29-Mar-2015
Pros: Clean and quiet.
Cons: Having a coffee and tea maker in each room would help. Also, a hair dryer would be great.
Overall our stay was pleasant but it could have been better if there was coffee and tea available in the room. Hotel serves complementary coffee and tea in the mornig in the lobby but there was no coffee maker in our room.
