The reasonably priced inn is one of two restored 18th-century hotels in Nelson's Dockyard National Park (the other is the Admiral's Inn). The hotel was built by the British Royal Navy around 1783 as a dockyard storehouse for copper and lumber (as the name signals), and many of the 14 handsomely refurbished studios and suites still have the original brick-ballast walls. Outfitted in contemporary colonial reproductions, wood floors, and throw rugs, each room is named after one of Lord Nelson's ships. Every Friday evening is Seafood Friday, a popular seafood cookout hosted by the hotel—it's got live entertainment and a great seafood buffet, so don't miss it.
