We stayed here one night and thought it was fine. Our deluxe room had recently been redecorated and was nicely done. It was clean and comfortable. The only downsides were 1) it's fairly close to State Street, which is the street that all the semi trucks use when they come in to town, and 2) the wi-fi was not complimentary.... More

Stayed 2 nights and was very pleased. The room was recently updated, clean, quiet, and spacious. I am rating 5 stars because this place is outstanding for the geographic area. We selected the Deluxe room since the upcharge was minimal and were glad we did. The coffee in the lobby was very good and free as were tea, and hot... More

We only stayed one night, but they were one of the few places open during the "off" season. The lobby was older and musty, but the room we stayed in was newer. We had plenty of room and we were quite comfortable. I have no reservations in recommending them to other travelers. They will even meet you at the ferry... More

We stayed here for a few weeks for work and this place was nice. The rooms were very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. It was within walking distance of the downtown which was great. The name made me initially think it was more of a cabin but, nope. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. There... More

Very impressed on our one-night stay The room was exceptionally clean! You can tell it's a bit of an older building, but very well done inside & very spacious! Quiet setting makes for a good place to relax after the long drive we'd had! Shower head was a bit low for us ;-), but that's a minor complaint. We would... More

Skagway was our last stop in Alaska before heading to Whitehorse and the Yukon. We stayed only because we arrived too late to catch the bus to Whitehorse. Everyone told us Skagway is a really bad touristy place, but we thought it was really nice. We only had time to visit the Klondike museum and walk around the shops (which... More

Stayed at Sgt. Preston's in mid August,2014 for several days. The place was clean and kept up, and they addressed our accomodation requests very well. They are not cheap, but then no motels in Alaska are cheap. Given the rather limited motel choices available in Skagway, and the outrageous fees that are charged, we chose Sgt. Preston's as one of...

I wasn't sure what to expect from a place with a name like this but was pleasantly surprised. Room was clean, spacious and quiet, and a fridge was available in the foyer of my grouping of 4 rooms. Staff was very friendly , there were a couple of computers in the lobby for internet access as well as coffee and... More

I'm a repeat customer of the Sgt. Preston's Lodge - not because it is anything amazing, but because it is close and suffices. There's nothing really to the lodge. It's a motel in almost every aspect of the word. Though our room this time wasn't amazing, I've had some good ones before and I like the place's location. Staff are... More

This is a good hotel because the rooms are comfortable and spacious and it is very convenient to downtown Skagway. The people are very helpful and friendly and there is free coffee in the office. It doesn't have any special design or conveniences that make it especially "Alaskan", but it certainly serves its purpose if you are transiting the area.
