We stayed two nights in the Totem Inn and found it very comfortable. Upon arrival I was wondering what we were in for because it looked so old, but we stayed in the newer Chugach Suites, located behind the restaurant and check in area. The suite we were in was spacious, cozy and very comfortable, with lounge and a well... More

I was in Valdez for a night on my way home from working at a remote hatchery in the sound. Unfortunately, the Best Western was sold out, and I had to stay at this place. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was rude, unattentive, and everyone seemed like they would rather be anywhere but at work. The room wasn't bad... More

This is the first time for me to stay in Totem Inn. It is expanded hotel, so you need to check in first at the restaurant area. Staff seem to be busy serving and taking care of customers who come to eat at the restaurant more than the customers who come to check in / check out from the hotel.... More

Called for a recommended room to stay in as the Best Western of Valdez was full. Couldn't believe anyone would recommend it! Our room was in the front building. We entered a room which had a hole under the flooring joint of the front door. Coffee cans at each door for cigarettes. No fan in bathroom nor air conditioning in... More

My family stayed at this motel on July 31st. It was a gooed experience. The room was clean, and it was spacious. The hair dryer didn't work, and the staff replaced it as soon as I brought it to their attention. Everyone was friendly and accomodating. The bathroom door needed some repair, it didn't shut tight, but that really wasn't... More

We stayed in one of the little cabins for two nights. They are set up well, with a small kitchenette, and a decent bed and sitting area. Service was good, as was the food in the restaurant, and reasonably priced. Nice lounge with affordable drink prices. Our only issue was that the Wi-fi didn't reach the cabins from the main... More

We had a series of fishing charter days lined up and needed somewhere comfortable and casual to crash each night. Totem was in the middle of town, had a nice restaurant build inside and free wifi around the grounds. Suites were terrific and very comfortable, including full washing facilities and kitchen to cook up our fish. Staff very friendly which... More

We got a last minute room in the main building which is with the restaurant. The rooms were very old, and had the bare minimum. Figured it would not be too good when we pulled in. The place is rather run down and aged. The staff would hardly put down their lunch long enough to check us in. But figured... More

My husband and I stayed here during a conference. We stayed in a suite. The room was spacious, with laundry right in the room, a full kitchen, a big screen tv with DVD player, and a fully appointed kitchen. The restaurant in the main building was always quick and tasty with all the basic breakfast, lunch, and dinner items available... More
