I didn't stay at the Motel but rented a car from them during my stay in Haines. Car wasn't the newest or shiny/spotless, but a super-reliable roomy & safe Subaru Forrester - the BEST car for driving in rainy/snowy weather. Also, the staff were WONDERFUL, very friendly and flexible. I unexpectedly needed to extend my rental for a day and... More

First, the website does not reflect reality. This place is decades after its glory days. You do get a bed and a basic bathroom, but don't expect comfort. The place is depressing both inside and outside. For sure, you don't go to Haines looking for a high end places. There's a fridge... But all our goods got frozen hard, so... More

We stayed here in 2012 and like it .so we went back. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. We love the view from the balcony, of ocean and mountains. They have a little table and benches to set on the deck.

There isn't a lot of choice of accommodation in Haines, Alaska so expectations must be kept reasonable. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the room was perhaps the best in the motel (room 262 I think) that has a balcony with a great view of the mountains and ocean with an eagle circling overhead. Sure the rooms needed a... More

I stayed the night of the Bike Relay, so was quite pleased with the quietness of the room! I had heard stories of the place before, so was a bit wary, but I stayed in the lowest level, mid row, and below the deckand I didn't hear any noises other than a shower running in the morning and the place...

I couldn't stand how almost everything fabric in this hotel was so gross. The towels were some brownish color next to some white ones so im not sure if they where old or they changed brands. The carpets were so old you could feel the dirt. Decor is nautical and close to a real pirate theme. I definitely feel very... More

I stayed with Captains choice in November, when I was in Haines for the Eagle festival. It is important to remember you are in a remote location, so expectations need to be different. The room was clean and the staff were helpful and nice. There are few rooms in Haines, and I liked that others that were in the area... More

We stayed here in October, having come upmfrom Juneau on the ferry to go to the bald eagle preserve, which was amazing! This motel is very old, but our room was clean and as other reviews said, you can walk pretty much anywhere. We didn't have the breakfast which was just coffee and I think bagel or toast. But the...

Place charges 120 a night for a dump, but they know you have no where else to go so you pay. They have an unreasonable surcharge for using the Internet that did not work for us, it kept dropping in and out. Rooms look like they were from a 70s horror film, complimentary breakfast was a joke. Staff was nice... More

The staff here are great but the motel needs a major overhaul. The motel is kept as clean as it can be but carpet needs to be replaced, rooms painted, key cards install, new trim, etc, all which is probably out of reach of the owners. Internet is not free but the location is quite good, but given that Haines... More
