We arrived in Haines about 5 pm on Sunday evening. The reception staff was very friendly. The rooms were very clean although a little worn. Beds were comfortable and the view is fantastic. They had good suggestions about places to eat since many of the restaurants are closed in winter.

we stayed one night. The carpet was old, worn and completely filthy. The bathroom was so dirty I had to get some cleaner and clean it myself before we could use it. Hair and dirt all over it. Disgusting and I will never stay here again. I even took a picture to prove it.

Stayed here 5 nights during photography trip for eagles in November 2014. Location/Motel: Haines is a small town and the Captains Choice is located in the central downtown area near local businesses, shops, restaurants, bars and grocery store. The motel itself is comprised of three separate buildings with the main building and lobby also housing the bar (Captain's Lounge). See... More

When you enter Captain's Choice, you immediately see the reception area and the bar (also used for breakfasts). To get to the rooms, you go downstairs. The rooms are a bit musty and dark, the size of the room is fine, but what is really good is the wonderful view.Breakfast was coffee and a packaged muffin. By the 2nd morning... More

We were charged $140 for this room. It was awful. Hair in the tub, baseboard hanging off of the tub, chairs that were stained beyond belief and lumpy, and a mattress so worn out, I literally could not stay in the bed. I kept slipping out. I complained the next morning when we decided to check out. The front desk... More

The Captain's Choice Motel was a very nice place to stay in Haines. The room was VERY spacious and had a wonderful view of the mountains. The staff was very helpful, even picking me up from the ferry. Since my husband had been called away on business, I invited a friend whom I had met on the ferry to stay... More

Not a lot to choose from in Haines. Normally this would be a 1 dot rating but due to its location we are being really lenient starting it at a 3. So we deducted 1 point for the horrible odor in the room and 1 point for the rope used for moulding around the 3 various types of beat up... More

Firstly, they need to change their profile photo. It is not a photo of the hotel, it's the restaurant across the road, which by the way is very good! The hotel has a bar in the middle which serves as a breakfast room. They have a computer for the guests to use, seems wifi in Alaska is hit & miss.... More

We got an end room that overlooked the water beautifully. This room was several steps above the ones we've stayed at the last couple of nights on our long Alaska Adventure. This room was very clean and had amenities I appreciate. Lots of plugs to charge phones, etc. Plugs and good lighting in the bathroom, decent linens and towels. There... More
