“Decent Stay in Sitka”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This hotel was booked as part of a fishing package I'd purchased. The fishing lodge was full so they put us at the Totem Square. I'd called ahead (a couple times) and requested a water view room, but when we arrived, they had no record of my request. The girls at the front desk were in no hurry to check us in, or to be helpful for that matter, the surly attitude was even more effective after a 10 hour flight. The room was small and not very nice. You know how they say a mattress only lasts 7 years? This one was on year 8. On the 3rd day I paid $100 more a night to upgrade to the 2-room suite, well worth it! The bed in this room was slightly better. We even had a pretty water view! The hotel is in a good location, walk to everything but still quiet. There is a restaurant there called the Dock Shack, that's another review (and not a good one). By the last day, the surly girls were even friendly! Sitka is a truly beautiful town, and this hotel was fine in the end. I wish I'd booked the suite for all nights, but it turned out OK.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and book the 2 room suite! Well worth it!

We had a comfortable stay here but would not need to put it on our "must stay again" list. We were lucky to find accommodation in Sitka as the place books up early with travellers off to discover Alaska. The hotel is in a central location of Sitka so handy to all spots in town.

I have now stayed at every hotel in Sitka and conclude that they're all disappointing. The Totem smells funny and has just acceptable rooms. The industrial dispensers for shampoo and soap are a turn off. Plus, it's expensive. If you're visiting Sitka, do yourself a favor - skip the hotels and book with one of the many fine B&Bs in this town.

Only spent one night there on business. Room was clean but small. Ok for a single traveler on business. Nothing fancy. Front desk was friendly. Great location within walking distance to town. I would stay there again.

I was really surprised at how nice this hotel was. I was in Sitka for a conference after the tourism season had ended and the Totem Square Hotel was very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a small fridge and microwave in the room. I have stayed at many hotels all over Alaska and my room, the lobby, and the restaurant were all impeccably clean. The staff at the front desk were all welcoming. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends headed to Sitka. The bed was a little too soft and I could have used more desk space, but those were the only negatives.

Room Tip: I asked for a marina view room.

Well located, clean and comfortable. Good option for a fisherman overnight. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy parking and access to airport.

Make reservations at least a week in advance since they have large groups from time to time.

Ask for top floor

Very comfortable and the staff was friendly. There was some noise issues on the one weekend night we were there but I turned on the wall fan and was able to leave the window open. The fan created "white noise" and sleep was easy.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet side but be aware of the wall fans that help keep the circulation of fresh air going a...
