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.

Our second visit to the Historic Skagway Inn, the first fourteen years, ago showed some new improvements but no changes to the historical motif. The rooms continue to retain their turn of the century motif without sacrificing comfort. Some rooms now have ½ baths but one must still share showers in the hall. Breakfast is served downstairs at Olivia's, the... More

Glad you enjoyed the Inn a second time. As we work on the building we do try to stay with the Gold Rush theme, while adding modern amenities, like wi-fi and private baths, and courtesy van More

I decided, at the last minute, to attend the Skagway Writers Symposium and was fortunate to find a room at the Skagway Inn. Having stayed here in the 80's, I was pleased to find that the bedrooms still have the same quaint atmosphere of the Gold Rush brothel that it was but is clean, painted, wallpapered, and very cozy. Had... More

Skagway has one main drag (Broadway) where most of the shops, lodging, and restaurants are located and it's an easy walk from one end to the other, so convenient may not seem like a key criteria. But I apply this term not just to the Inn's location, which is central enough for whatever you are doing while in Skagway, but... More

My family and I stumbled on the steps of this historic little hotel along the main drag in Skagway. It used to be a brothel and the decor reflected the charm and character of the time. We truly had a great time. It was quaint and cozy and was the most interesting place we stayed when travelling through the Yukon... More

Lots of charm is the creaky old brothel. I had a chance to stay here in May of 2014 for work. On arrival there was no one at the inn to great us - the reservation was noted incorrectly, but the keep did have our rooms for us. My room was charming with a comfy bed done in the older... More

We ended up getting stuck in Skagway unexpectedly with out a place to stay for the night. Everywhere else was full so we ended up stumbling upon the Inn blindly and were willing to take whatever. The Inn had character for sure! The staff was very very friendly and helpful, always cheerful. The rooms we a bit smaller than a... More

We spent one night at the Historic Skagway Inn. The staff and the owners were very nice and friendly. The room was definitely too small and breakfast was average.. The price we paid was not worth the money. Before you go there make sure you want such type of accommodation.
