The Long Ships goes back to the 60's or before. It is still operating as of 2023 and the reviews are excellent. You can indeed see the long ships going by from the motel.
From the website:
The Long Ships Motel, located directly across from the "Famous Soo Locks" in the Lock Side District, is within walking distance of most local attractions. Take a step outside your door and watch huge freighters from around the world lock through.
