“nice enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

we were on a HollandAmerica tour of Alaska; all of the hotels like the Westmark were owned by HollandAmerica is my guess. They were generally very clean, comfortable beds and spacious rooms; we were only here one night but I would recommend the hotel and especially since it appears there were few other choices in this typical small Alaska town.

One of the best beds we had occasion to enjoy on our six week adventure. The room was clean and comfortable and within walking distance of about everything this quaint little town has to offer. We would have liked a mini-fridge to keep cold drinks, but it was very nice. The staff was very efficient and although we only stayed one night it was reasonably priced and quiet. We didn't know they had a shuttle, so we walked the quarter mile from the ferry terminal to the hotel.

Room Tip: We were across the street from the main hotel and it was quiet.

We were so pleased with this quaint hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. The young man from Central Michigan University who waited on us in the dining room was super friendly. We had a great breakfast and dinner. It is a shame that it closes in the winter.

My dog did a B&E (break and exit) from the room through the screen well we were out. The staff was so amazing and helpful!!!! Thank you for all you did to help find Tia :) Your kindness made my day! From everyone at the desk to the housekeeper who knew to call the puppy jail. Your efforts were greatly appreciated.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is just a few blocks from the cruise ship dock in the middle of Skagway. The room was clean but rather small. It was a bit cool so we turned on the heat. Nothing seemed to happen but in the middle of the night it was very hot - the electric baseboard heater was right beside one of the beds and really heated up that bed and the room. For convenience and price would stay here again. We didn't spend much time in the room or the hotel we just needed a place to stay before heading to Glacier Bay in the morning.

We stayed at the Westmark for one night before hiking the Chilkoot Trail. The hotel is a classic northern hotel - somewhat dated, but with lots of character. Rooms are small, with 1970's dark wood panelling look, but functional. There is a great lounge area on the second floor for killing time, which is helpful as there is not much to do in Skagway! The best feature for trail hikers is the bountiful breakfast buffet that opens at 5:00 a.m.

We stayed for one while on our Alaska ride. The staff was great, the room very comfortable with great bedding (although a little small). Except for the dark paneling in the halls which gave it a very dated look, is was a good experience.
