    Are these sentences natural? April 27

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Is this the river we were going to live by? ( I was trying to ask if our hotel was by this river)

    2. What time do the stores open in this town?

    3. Until what time will you serve breakfast tomorrow?

    Thanks,
    MG.

    Sounds good to me, except I would say "stay" instead of "live." You stay in a hotel, you don't normally live there. (Unless you are on some sort of long-term assignment.)
