The name of our room was Kitty. It was comfortable but small. We got a peek of most of the 10 rooms at the hotel and they are all small but nicely decorated. Our host met us at the dock and transported us to the hotel. That was a big plus. The hotel is not that far from the dock... More

This cozy hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of Skagway's attractions and is appointed with interesting period pieces scattered throughout lobby, common areas and rooms. Guests are offered a home-cooked breakfast including eggs, bacon and potatoes or offerings from the breakfast bar. Proprietor and staff are helpful and willing to accommodate guest needs. Charming outdoor tables extend the hotel... More

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Historic Skagway Inn during our visit to the city earlier this month, and we really enjoyed our stay! Bear in mind, this is a genuine historic structure (from the Klondike Gold Rush days), and the owners have taken pains to restore rather than gut-and-update it. For that reason, most... More

This is the third time I have had the pleasure of staying at the Historic Skagway Inn, and I believe that if I couldn't stay here I would modify my travel plans so I could. Karl, his family, and employees strive to make your visit amazing. All of your needs (and then some) will be taken care of. Karl picked... More

From the time of booking (March), I knew we were in for a special stay as the proprietor was very friendly and most helpful with our plans. Upon arrival at the airport we felt like friends arriving for a 'holiday weekend'. "Cleo" room worked very well for us...comfortable with private bathroom and great towels. Ate at Olivia's (it was Sushi... More

It is a very interesting place to stay.. Like going back in time.. Children are having a lot of fun. Alice is a very good room, full bathroom inside (some rooms don't). Price I find it higher though.. Good attention, clean rooms, quiet and cozy,,

My wife and I just spent three nights at the Historic Skagway Inn. Specifically, we were in the Ida room (each room is named after a prostitute that used to work there during the Klondike gold rush of 1897-1899). First, it is an old, creaky building. The floors squeak a lot! The rooms tend to be small (people were smaller... More

We stayed at the Historic Skagway Inn after completing the Chilkoot Trail. The management and staff are incredibly friendly - during booking, the management was willing to be flexible and adapt the "Chilkoot Hikers' Package" to our needs. They keep bear spray and cooking fuel for hikers - a big plus if you're flying into Alaska and therefore can't bring... More

We stayed here before and after our Chilkoot Trail hike. Worked well for us as bear spray, stove fuel, a ride to the trail head, and also to and from the airport were all provided. Also stored excess belonging at the Inn during the trail hike. It all worked well for use. The breakfast was a nice touch. I will... More

My daughter (11) and I stayed at this inn during our travels through se Alaska. It was very nicely decorated and themed. Very pleasant place to stay. Carl was great with the shuttle to and from the ferry. Breakfast was a great treat compared to other places we stayed. We had a great time here.
