We had a comfortable stay here but would not need to put it on our "must stay again" list. We were lucky to find accommodation in Sitka as the place books up early with travellers off to discover Alaska. The hotel is in a central location of Sitka so handy to all spots in town.

I have now stayed at every hotel in Sitka and conclude that they're all disappointing. The Totem smells funny and has just acceptable rooms. The industrial dispensers for shampoo and soap are a turn off. Plus, it's expensive. If you're visiting Sitka, do yourself a favor - skip the hotels and book with one of the many fine B&Bs in...

Only spent one night there on business. Room was clean but small. Ok for a single traveler on business. Nothing fancy. Front desk was friendly. Great location within walking distance to town. I would stay there again.

I was really surprised at how nice this hotel was. I was in Sitka for a conference after the tourism season had ended and the Totem Square Hotel was very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a small fridge and microwave in the room. I have stayed at many hotels all over Alaska and my room, the lobby,... More

Well located, clean and comfortable. Good option for a fisherman overnight. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy parking and access to airport. Make reservations at least a week in advance since they have large groups from time to time. Ask for top floor

Very comfortable and the staff was friendly. There was some noise issues on the one weekend night we were there but I turned on the wall fan and was able to leave the window open. The fan created "white noise" and sleep was easy.

We spent 3 nights and it was really comfy, a lovely view and would recommend it. Jacob on the desk was extremely helpful. The only thing missing is a fridge, but there is an ice machine on each floor. Sitka is such a tiny place, that it's only a short walk anywhere.

We had specifically booked a room on the "quiet" side of the hotel but they did not honor that. It had recently changed management and the new owners just don't seem to understand customer service. I would look for somewhere else to stay in Sitka next time.

Clean, friendly staff, beautiful view of the harbor, walking distance to most places. My wife and I recently crusied SE Alaska, and had our hotel reservation made by Alaska Dream Cruises. We were very pleased with the accomodations. We were permitted to check in at 9 AM, and enjoy the day before our cruise's departure exploring the beautiful town of... More

More than adequate. Walking distance to other restaurants and local attractions. Staff very helpful in picking up delayed bags for us at airport and dropping us and bags at cruise start/briefing location. We were 3 couples in town for small cruise ship pickup. We liked Sitka, too, especially the totem park at other end of town - with nice woods... More
