This hotel is in a great location. It is right on the harbor and walking distance to most of the incredible sights Sitka has to offer. However. The rooms could stand to be updated/. The elevator is small and cramped, not to mention slow. The service was less than spectacular at the front desk. I stay here when other options...

Spent one night here on our return trip from a few nights spent at a fishing lodge. The rooms are outdated and small, but we were still comfortable. There is a restaurant right on site and the hotel is close to downtown Sitka. The hotel offers shuttle service to the airport.

Stayed one night while waiting for a cruise, the reason I rated this as poor was mainly because of the price. Hotel is basic and needs a little TLC. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has a shuttle which picked us up from the airport. The hotel restaurant and bar is on the waterside which was a nice touch,...

Loved the location , the view and the bar! I enjoyed being downtown. Perfect location and they will shuttle you to the airport. Not the fanciest place , but perfect for my needs. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room and bathroom not clean, no help with luggage (I'm a senior female), major expensive (249.00) for single. Adding to the insults bar waiter made a $130 mistake on our bar bill! Few options in town but look elsewhere first.

The room was okay, but the smells in the hall and common areas were not appealing. On top of that, our bathroom had hair, I'm assuming from the previous guest, all over it. When I approached the front desk about it, they informed me that housekeeping had left for the evening. It seems like there should have been someone there...

A very basic room but clean. We had a fan in the room which was excellent for drowning out noises as hotel was noisy. Enjoyed having coffee and tea available all the time. Restaurant did not serve breakfast. The views from the restaurant were excellent! Only ate one dinner there and food was mediocre. Th hotel was convenient to walking...

Utilitarian. Very, very small room, dusty & not that clean. Very expensive. No AC, assume this is because for most of the year the temperatures don't justify the expense; in fact, there's been no expense spared because there's been no expense expended, e.g. soap & shampoo are provided by means of public convenience type dispensers which is poor given the...

Fabulous views. That is the good news. We ordered drinks at the outside bar. One was s wine spritzer which the server had never heard of. We had to explain. 20 minutes later it shows up minus the spritzer. Server apologizes and goes to bar to rectify. 40 minutes later shows up with nothing and we just ask for the...

Maybe it's because I stay in hotels quite often that I'm giving this a much lower review than all the rest that you'll see here on TripAdvisor. I'm not picky, but if I'm paying north of $200 a night, I expect some basics which are totally lacking here. The truth is that this isn't a horrible place to stay --...
