Stayed there with my family, and there was a work crew staying the summer there, we couldn't sleep until 3:30 am.. We were so tired and the bed was horrible! The bed frame was broken, the phone didn't have a phone cord going to it, I had to use my cell phone to call the front desk. The light also... More

We had one night to stay in Ketchikan after an Inside Passage Cruise and this Inn provided everything we needed. The room was quiet and clean. The bed was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The on-site restaurant was convenient and continental breakfast very convenient.

Several years ago, I spent one night there, it was summer, and the sea planes started taking off very early in the a.m., VERY loudly! I was not pleased with how small the room was, either. I do hope all rooms aren't that small! Since I don't drive, I'm restricted to riding the bus, or getting free rides on the... More

The reception staff were rude and often found asleep at the desk. The owner abused us as soon as we arrived and entered the bar area. The food is disgraceful and the photos on the internet are nothing like the hotel in reality. Couldn't wait to leave!!!!! Would never recommend.

The rooms are pretty average but clean and servicable. The food in the restaurant is very good and they are very accommodating. Breakfast is excellent. They have a shuttle that will take you anywhere you want to go. All in all a nice experience.

I can't review this hotel like I would in the Lower 48. Alaska is different. While the outside of the hotel looks like it is someplace for fisherman only (not really pretty), it actually is a very good place to stay. We had flown all day to get to Ketchikan and were pretty tired. While the hotel is a little... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The bed was a big saggy where (apparently) everyone who has ever rented the room has sat. Our room was a queen-twin 2-bed room and it was a tight fit, but adequate since we didn't spend much time indoors. Temperature was comfortable with a heater and thermostat, no AC, but the sliding door to... More

Nice comfortable bed, pleasant staff, seemed clean. I liked the fan in the room and the breakfast was enough. We didn't have any problems. I haven't stayed in another Ketchikan hotel so not sure of other options. They are all expensive!

Tiny grungy rooms! Food and restaurant experience negative! This almost seems like a place that has outlived its life and is about to close! We tried it for its proximity to the water. Would sleep in the airport and eat from vending machines before this again!

We stayed there one night. Next time, we would pay a bit more and go for one of the other places in town. There was a VERY smelly chair (upholstered) in the room - I thought the terrible smell was coming in through the open window, then finally figured out it was embedded in the fabric of the chair I...
