Forgot my foamy or I would have camped in the car. Should have anyways for how comfortable the bed was. I stayed here a month ago and the room was much better and more comfortable. Maybe don't stay in the annex on the bottom? Convenient location to walk home from the bar

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. Someone picked me up at the tiny airport and they stored my luggage until the afternoon when I could check in. You can walk everywhere in Haines from this location. The rooms are pretty old, but you know what, it's reasonably priced and it's clean and for a traveler on a budget,...

Their ad states "The Captain's Choice Motel is one of Alaska's finest motels" NOWAY ! it's old and out dated so much so that the furniture is falling apart.

I travel to Haines frequently and always try to stay at the Captains Choice. The staff is friendly and willing to help out with whatever they can. They offer free shuttle rides to and from the airport and ferry terminal at any time of the day or night. The hotel has a simple free breakfast with bagels and pastries. Wireless...

First off, if you have an extra two days or so while traveling the Alcan to Alaska make sure you make the drive from Haines Junction, Yukon to Haines Alaska on the Haines highway 3/7. This road meanders along through the Yukon, BC and then into Alaska, high up in the mountains, skirting along Kluane National Park. High mountain passes...

We spent 2 nights here as part of a 10 day trip around the Inside Passage. There aren't many options in Haines and, being September, there aren't many bargains to be had in Alaska. One of the main reasons we picked this hotel was the fact that they will shuttle you to and from the hotel. We flew into the...

this was an absolutely marvelous visit to a place and a town that just make you feel at home... accommodations rustic and maybe even, admittedly a bit shopworn, but that's all the part of the charm, and what better than a fresh plate of local smoked fish put out as "lagniappe" in the morning... we were fortunate enough to stay...
