I spent a night here when the B&B I prefer had new guests coming in. The location is ideal, close to everything. The room was spartan and motel-ish but clean, and I had a good night's sleep. The rates are not cheap and, compared to the many B&Bs around, not great value but it is perfectly adequate for a night or two.

Nice, clean, accomodating hotel. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Shuttle service to and from Petersburg Airport. Located in the small downtown area, and within walking distance to dining and shopping. A fish cleaning station and large freezer are available for anglers to use. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: There is no elevator to the 4th floor, not sure if you have to walk all the way or if you can take t...

Pleasant staff very responsive re request for pick up at Ferry and transport to the airport.

Good downtown location close to everything.They will rent a car for 60.00 per day.We did not
do so but other guests traveled to local lakes where they said free unattended row boats made for a pleasant experience on the water in this beautiful setting.
King size bed was comfortable.Bathroom was clean.

"Continental breakfast" consisted of three items (coffee,OJ,muffin).At check out we owed 3.00 per day for WiFi.The reasonable cost did not bother us but we wish hotel staff would have informed us of the charge when they gave us the password.
Overall it was a good experience and we would stay at Scandia House again.

The Scandia House was a clean and comfortable place to stay with friendly staff and a convenient location. They provide complimentary shuttle service to and from the ferry and airport. We had a very late/early morning ferry departure. The Scandia House stored our luggage for us and then welcomed us to stay in the lobby for the few hours prior to our ferry departure. Even though we had to leave for the ferry at 1 AM the desk agent very willingly provided us with a ride to the ferry. The Scandia House is a wonderful place to stay in Petersburg.

Room Tip: Take the complimentary shuttle service to the airport and then walk the road a short distance to San...

Loved Petersburg. Check out all the bald eagles hanging around the fish processors. Folks are real friendly. So why is the the management so gruff and rude at this hotel? We checked out on the second day and spent the next two days at the other hotel up the street (see my next review).
All I asked for was an extra towel!....really didn't expect to get smoke out of the managers ears. Looking at the other reviews here I guess we were not the only ones who got this attitude. Also, we did not think the rooms were as clean as others here have said.

The hotel is clean, rooms are spacious, and staff is really nice/helpful. We loved the shower... outstanding water pressure and an extra high showerhead. (great for my tall Norwegian husband). The street in front of the hotel was completely shut down when we visited so it was hard to figure out where to go and park, etc. I called from the car and they were really helpful. We liked the room and the wifi worked well. You just had to log in several times. For us, the breakfast was not great. There is a large grocery store a mile away, so we just ate in the room. The kitchenette was great.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Scandia House. The staff was helpful, the rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and it is in a great location within walking distance to most everything in town. Thanks.
