veryyyy small room,LOUD old radiator for heat, which made clanging and banging noises entire time-is same for every room apparently-the fire sprinkler system is the old exposed pipe that is on the walls and ceiling, and you have to hold the handles for the sink(which require a bit of strength to begin with) so you can only use hot OR cold and wash one hand at a time, or else have someone help you which the bathroom is very tinty as well, just a stall shower. couldnt get the window open and could hear other people through the walls late into the night. We were here on the off season so anyone coming during the tourist season april to sept I cant imagine how much louder it would be with the local bars and such downstairs and next door. as mentioned by other travelers there is no elevator and no one helps with the luggage. Also there is only one small table in the room where the coffee pot and lamp are, barely big enough for a laptop and a notebook to sit there, not even a nightstand on either side, so that was weird and annoying.
All in all I didnt like this place and cant believe it costs so much, but of course everything in ketchikan is over 100 bucks, plus since alot of tourists come here once they probably figure isnt worth the effort to get repeat customers. Is very old and I doubt much has been done since the 1920's when it was built-definately still has the same heating system so I guess is no a/c for the summertime but I dont know that for sure.
The restuarant downstairs which is part of the hotel is way overpriced, was over 9 bucks for a cheeseburger, and the meals were 20-30 bucks for each person, just for the entree not including the drink or anything else. Will not plan on returning here.
