The Gilmore is a perfect choice when visiting the town of Ketchikan. Right on the Main Street, close to everything. Beautiful,older hotel. Yes, there are no elevators, but the few steps are not hard to manage. The ladies at the front deskwere friendly and very helpful. Very glad we choose to stay here while visiting.

Some of the charm was because it looks so old and outdated, but some updating around the front desk would be good because it is crowded due to the layout of the entry. Service at desk was helpful, but slow getting info processed. No elevator. The room door stuck, and it made us think that the key was faulty,. which... More

We had a room with a harbour view which made it more interesting. Because it's a very old hotel it has basic amenities, but it is clean and comfortable. No breakfast or cookies as advertised, but tea/ coffee available on the second floor all day. Excellent location.

Anywhere Else I would have given 2 stars, but for Ketchikan there's a kind of quality curve. Room was clean, small, no view, but I was trying to cut cost. I'm sure if you're willing to spend more, you'll get more. Also note, there is no elevator at the Gilmore. And you can walk to just about anywhere you need... More

We had to stay in Ketchikan one night before our float plane could get us out. I was very impressed with this place. They pay for a cab to shuttle you back and forth from the airport. That was a pleasant surprise. This place is a historic buildings and it shows with the rooms. They are clean though and very... More

A waterfront hotel in downtown Ketchikan, well located for access. Historic hotel, but facilities have not been upgraded, and not charming. The front desk staff varied from being helpful and friendly to unfriendly, brash, and rude. Expensive for what it provides. No welcoming feature. Would look for a different place next time.

Price of $180 per knight was far to expensive. As others have already said, it is a very old hotel .Its a motel.The staff not very helpful but not rude everywhere small rooms . The motel is located near the centre of the town.
