Against a backdrop of Marathon Mountain, with views down to Resurrection Bay, the location of the Van Gilder Hotel is hard to beat. Sadly, that's the only positive thing I have to say about this dreary hotel. Our room was dark and musty with two queen-sized beds shoe-horned into the available space. The vinyl-clad bathroom was reminiscent of the worst motels. A dirt road running past our window (with unidentified plant life growing between the panes) seemed to attract every noisy truck in town. With an injection of cash and a complete renovation the hotel could be a gem, but it'll continue doing business as usual as long as it gets undeserved three and four star reviews.
