No other choice as this is the only hotel in Petersburg! Breakfast room is very old fashioned with a very limited selection of items. No waffle maker which was broken and sitting atop an old refrigerator. No Coffee in room at all. Had to ask for a hair dryer from the front desk, which was also old and smelly when... More

I reserved this hotel for a business trip and couldn't be angrier. I had flown in from Buffalo, NY for two days of work at a local business. As I have hotel reservations in hand, I was informed that they overbooked and could not give me a room. This is prime fishing season, and rooms are not plentiful. I figured... More

I've stayed at the Tides Inn several times in 2015 as I pass through Petersburg en route to various remote locations for the filming of a National Geographic Channel television series. The staff at the Tides Inn are always really friendly and helpful with any questions I have. The breakfast in the morning is always plentiful and just right to... More

I have stayed at the tides inn a few times and the people that own and run this hotel Arne the best. They have always gone above and beyond to make my stay the best. The rooms are always clean and I will always stay at the tides inn when I visit Petersburg

Though not much to look at, the Tides Inn of petersburg, Ak provided a safe, calm and quiet nights sleep. The rooms are typical in size and layout to that of most places of its age. But upgraded linens, decent toiletries, excellent housekeeping make it a comfortable choice. Pricing is comparable to others in the area, and location to services... More

I stay at this hotel when on business in Petersburg. It is centrally located in downtown, so walking distance to most restaurants and shops. It is quiet in the winter months and a bit more noisy in the summer months when tourists are traipsing about. The walls are rather this so can be you can pretty much hear everything your... More

Sure it's a little dated but clean and comfortable, nice staff and convenient location. I think some people may have very unrealistic expectations when you stay in a 2 or 3 star hotel . Yes, it cost more than you would pay in many places, but that's Alaska!

This is a basic hotel but super clean and quiet.To me this is all you need since you will out exploring during the day. I will stay again when I am in town. Beautiful town, hope you get sunny weather but it is Alaska so expect rain.

We stayed here one night as a first stop on our Alaska trip. The inn is totally fine, nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either. Our room was standard; queen bed, desk, decent sized bathroom, everything was a bit dated but OK. Breakfast is included (waffles, syrup, coffee and not much else) and so is wifi.... More

Sorry to say it but we were very disappointed in the Tides Inn. The outdated furniture and old bed linens could possibly be overlooked. But, the smelly room and filthy carpet were disgusting. Then the toilet over-flowed to cap off the whole grimy experience. We asked to be moved to another room but that did not happen. Office staff seemed... More
