The hotel is an older place but decent. The room wasn't large and even there it was for three I wouldn't recommend more than two. The bathroom was small but ok. This hotel reminded me of the ones from 20 years ago but it was sufficient for the two days. The staff was friendly and there were on-site rental cars....

This is run by locals who enjoy what they are doing. The owner has passed away, and they are doing a good job keeping it up, until it goes thru probate. It has a fine story of the owner who passed away. The rooms are very comfortable and you can expect fine service from this local place. Beds are good....

We had a great few nights at this motel. The rooms were comfortable without being luxurious, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. A limited breakfast (raisin toast/muffins/croissants) was served in the lounge/bar each morning and there was always tea and coffee available. Lovely views across the water to the mountains. A convenient guest laundry on the...

I was sent to Haines for work and was provided a rental car through the Captain's Choice Motel. They picked me up right after my fight into Haines and had me in my rental car (a very nice and clean late model Subaru Forester) within minutes. Very pleasant interaction and I would highly recommend.

While traveling through Haines we wanted to stay in a fairly priced motel that offered a continental breakfast and was close to the ferry terminal. The front desk staff was nice and helpful. The location is great because it is close to the ocean while still being close to stores and restaurants, with the ferry not too far away as...

I lead a group of seven classic cars and 15 souls from Fairbanks, Alaska. We have stayed here before and were once again treated very well! The facility has some age but is clean and convenient to restaurants, museums, etc. - all within walking distance. The staff were very helpful and friendly. And there was plenty of off-street parking.

So i didn't have extremely high expectations for lodging knowing that I was going to an extremely remote part of Alaska. Though quite outdated inside, I thought this motel was just fine. Everything was clean, the staff was very friendly and the views right outside the door was droolworthy. It's very close to the water and situated well for walks....

The room was adequately furnished and equipped, and the bed was fine. The views from our room were outstanding, the kind where you feel like just sitting by the window and looking out over the mountains and the sea. The complimentary breakfast was ok, just a shame that they no longer offer a restaurant service for other meals. Not a...

Hello Martin I am glad that you were happy with the location and the view. Just to clarify on a few comments: We never did have restaurant service. We had a lounge that we voluntarily closed for we are still under probate since the death of the owner. As soon as we are thru that process the Lounge will reopen....

The property is years past its prime. The glue down carpet was filthy and coming up, the sheets were the tuck in type, not contour, the TV was one of the first ones with a remote. My wife and daughter--in-law both woke up with bites on their legs, and they were in different rooms. The ceilings were not much, if...

Hello I'd like to respond to your comments at this time. We have a staff on for 24 hours so if there was a problem I would have appreciated that you let us know. As to bites perhaps it was because we tell our guests about the bear viewing at the Chilkoot and you do get bitten by the insects...
