Good enough clean with enough room for 2 small dogs, a couple and a toddler. Wonderful view to the front picture window. Internet was slow and with a limit so you just had to grab another ticket to make it go again. It was free though. Had to use a towel to clog up the tub to give my son... More

I found the man at the front desk to be very unhelpful. We stayed in what they called a cabin which really was an old run down duplex behind the hotel. It has a kitchenette but the fridge froze the vegetables and the freezer compartment of the tiny fridge didn't work. The heat sucked it was either freezing or cooking.... More

It's tough to rate accommodation in places like Haines Junction. On the one hand, it's a motel providing a service; on the other, it's a motel in a remote location. As some reviews will tell you, the rooms are "tired". OK, that's true but you're in a location where the amount of traffic isn't going to be substantial so it's... More

There are several things that we think are most important in a motel room -- comfort of the bed, water pressure and temp of the shower, working TV, availability of wi-fi, towel quality, restaurants nearby, quietness. This motel scores well on most of these. We liked the bed, the shower was great, the towels were thick and the TV worked.... More

Clean room Comfortable bed Up to date decor and TV Coffee maker with very good coffee Spectacular view WiFi appeared to be available, but required a password. I never inquired, so don't know if there was an additional fee or not. We were on the second floor, while construction crews who all seemed to smoke occupied the first floor. Their... More

the room is large, but during our 1-night stay it was very hot. The airco didn´t work well, was very noisy and the windows couldn´t be opened when we tried to let some cooler night air in. The view though is amazing, the food in the onsite restaurant good and we could eat outside which was very pleasant. WIfi for... More

We had been on the fabulous Inland Passage ferry for three days and being back on shore came at a great time. Haines Junction was 155 miles from the ferry landing and great stopping point for the day. The Alcan Motor Inn was adequate for the area but not fancy. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. This part of... More

My sister and I drove from the east coast to Alaska and stopped here on night 9 of 10. Its a standard two story drive up motel. The room was clean and functional. Check in was odd. The office was empty with a sign to walk around back to an adjacent bar and check in there. On our way to... More

I am here tonight. The hotel is clean and warm. Internet speed is better than most on ALCAN. I like this place so much more because they have a restaurant and a bar on site. I dont have to drive in -20 weather for anything at all. Love it. And the hostess was nice enough to borrow her copy of... More

Make reservations or arrive early if you can, they sell out quickly. Spent Saturday 14 July 2012 there in room 210. This was my second time through Haines Junction, and the first time at this hotel; if I come back through I'll definitely try to stay at the Alcan. Was impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the politeness and... More
