As other viewers have noted, the Gilmore is old (built in 1927), the rooms are small, there is no air conditioning... This is all true, but if you want a room downtown there are very few choices. Over 95% of visitors to Ketchikan bring their rooms with them on cruise ships. Some tips on the Gilmore--the rooms in front can be noisy in the mornings because it is on Front St. and there is a lot of bus traffic picking up cruisers. The rooms in the back have a view of the wall of the building next door but they are cooler and not as noisy. The staff is friendly and helpful but especially at busy times, a bit disorganized. There is no elevator, so get some help if you are on the third floor. Our joke was that the stairs was the fitness center. Breakfast is included but very basic (coffee, cereal, rolls..) nothing hot. Annibel's next door is the best restaurant in Ketchikan.
