“Not much to choose from.....”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is a hotel with a good location, dinner at restaurant was good.....that is about all I can say positively! Room was VERY SMALL.....hardly room for luggage....maybe 9 x 9 without bathroom! Staff was pretty blah....not very helpful. Water spout fell off wall....rusty underneath, looked like it was glued on. Restaurant did not serve breakfast....a real bummer....lots of fisherman stay there...and need breakfast before going out. Free coffee is office.....granola bars for sale!

Yes the carpet in the hallway needed shampooing and we were disappointed when breakfast wasn't included (as noted online) and it is sort of bare-bones for the price, but... It is Alaska and you should expect getting a little less than elsewhere for the money. The hotel is well located for exploring the town on foot and the restaurant on the first floor is quite good. We had a second floor room facing the harbor, which was a nice location.

Room Tip: Go with a room on the top floor to avoid noise from above and get a room on the harbor side.

We had to book a room last minute and this was our only option. We paid $225 for one night for a tiny 10x10 room with two standard beds. The room smelled slightly like vomit which we didn't really notice until after we unpacked, and we probably should have tried to switch rooms, but didn't want to deal with switching rooms. The decor was nice enough and it had a small flatscreen TV which we were excited to watch after camping for two days, but the signal was very poor. Overall, the staff was fine, but we were disappointed with the smell, size and tv signal for the price.

There apparently is not much to choose from for places to stay in Sitka. This is in the center of town and near airport but expect a 1950's quality room and facility. Like the soap is mounted on the wall and the temperature control is windows.

We were booked here by Allen Marine for a stopover before an 11 Day cruise and had been quoted a special price by them. Fortunately I had my paperwork with me as when we checked in the rate was much more than we had been quoted but was quickly changed when I pointed out the discrepancy.
Rooms are comfortable and the hotel offers free wifi and a laundry which is very handy for anyone who has been travelling, fishing, cruising or participating in other Alaskan adventures. On site restaurant only open for lunch and dinner has basic but decent offerings. Breakfast at Fly In Fish Inn just down the street was delicious if a little slow on service. Overall a decent option in Sitka with a convenient downtown location on the marina where you can easily walk to anywhere in town.

A good location in the centre of town near Marina and Airport and room was ok. However, noisy from people moving around on floor above, hall carpets looked as though they need to be changed. The worst thing is that this " Hotel" does not serve breakfast and instead promotes the one served at their sister Hotel a 5 minute walk away.

I spent one night prior to staying at the fishing lodge, very clean, excellent service and quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lobby was very clean upon arrival, room was also very clean. Morning snacks and coffee were great. Highly recommend you overnight here while visiting Sitka.
