This is an old, historic hotel with a great staff, wonderful food in the Classic Annabelle's Restaurant downstairs.Great view of the waterfront and within easy walking to just about everything you would want to see or do.

On unhappily discovering that our flight from Seattle to Juneau could not go further than Ketchikan and we were going to have to spend the night, I selected The Gilmore Hotel from the list handed out at the airport. The night manager was caught off-guard at closing time with a constant barrage of phone calls from stranded travelers looking for... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Gilmore in July 2014 for work. This was booked for me through the office, so I had no idea of the accessibility. We checked into our rooms - we did wait a bit as there was only one clerk. She was very sweet and helpful. I had just been on the mend... More

I found the Gilmore hotel to be quaint. True it's an old property, but it has character and I didn't experience anything not working or being "run down". The price was reasonable (I believe we got a deal for staying for several days). If you want luxury, this is not the place (and you're going to need to pay quite... More

While the hotel is listed on the historical registry, it does not have the historic flavor. The rooms are very small, dated and tired. There is no elevator and the rooms are on the second and third floor however the staff will assist with any luggage. Front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. It is in the middle of town... More

The front desk was wonderful. They called a shuttle to pick us up from the ferry terminal, let us check in early, checked our bags at the end of the trip and where always around to help. The rooms were small and basic but clean and had character. Not super fancy but a decent hotel in the heart of town.

I've stayed here a few times over the last year for business. The first time I stayed I was greeted by a pillow sham that smelled like body odor when I laid down to sleep. I am not sure how frequently the bed linens are cleaned but it obviously hadn't been before my arrival. The room was also incredibly noisy... More

Stayed here on Aug. 12/13 2014. Worst hotel I've ever visited! BEDBUGS! Damp carpet, damp, musty bed. So bad I would not sleep under the covers, but instead slept on my sleeping bag atop the covers. Peeling paint on the walls, constantly dripping shower and a toilet that leaked on the floor. DO NOT STAY HERE if you want to... More

We are sorry this guest did not enjoy his stay, he booked two rooms for two nights and we were not aware of any problems with his stay until we read this review, right away we went upstairs and checked both rooms not knowing which one he was referring to, neither room showed any signs of bed bugs whatsoever, we...
