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

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.
