Wound up in this place since the Best Western was booked. The nicer rooms are about the same. However the attached restaurant is a great breakfast joint. Be sure to ask for the Alaska resident discount. Be sure to walk to the harbor where the better places to eat are.

Was very impressed with the suites. So much room and privacy. Came from Whittier AK on the Alaska Marine Highway ferry and was so happy to be staying at this hotel. Had a great breakfast the next morning. Thank you and we will stay at this hotel again! Also, all the staff were helpful and friendly-such a pleasant experience.

Had a great stay. Food was fantastic. Service was exceptional, especially Seth, who was very helpful and personable, and Hannah, who was fun, adorable and a great waitress. I would definitely recommend the Totem Inn.

My husband and I stayed two nights at Totem Inn at the beginning of a 10 day Alaskan road trip at the end of June. Our experience was very good from start to end. We stayed in a suite in the Orca building, which was a very nice suite with kitchen. The cleanliness and tastefulness was very good. They had... More

As a business traveler I've stayed at dozens of hotels and properties through the years; and I've stayed at the Totem twice now (each stay was over 30-days) and Pam at the front desk has always gone the extra mile for me to insure that I'm taken care of. The housekeeping staff is top notch and very friendly and the... More

We had planned on staying in a cheaper motel, but that went bad. I explained the situation to them and they gave us all that was available-a suite- at base room rates, it even had a washer and dryer in room. They saved our trip to Valdez

Not very happy. Made a rez 6 months ago for a cabin. When we arrived was told it was not available but would upgrade to a suite. Put us on second floor w/no elevator. I have a sprained ankle and we have a dog that needs to go out during the night. Accomodations nice but not what we wanted.

We have come here for breakfast every morning we were in Valdez. The staff is amazing, very friendly & attentive. The food is top notch. The totem Benedict was awesome. Lots of variety on the menu. Also great pancakes.

We were in Valdez for two days and ate at the Totem Inn twice. Both times we had dinner. My husband had the halibut and I had the shrimp the first night. The portions were wonderful and the service from Jimmy was excellent. The second night we both had Prime Rib dinners. Excellent cut of meat and portions again were... More

I was surprised how large this suite was; more like a 1-bedroom apartment. It had a full kitchen, with more cabinets than you would ever need for a short-stay suite, and a living room separate from the bedroom, with a 2nd TV. The bed was a bit squishy, but that's my only complaint. Our room, on the south side, had... More
