We stayed at the Totem for several night s while visiting family and sightseeing in the Valdez area. The rooms were very nice and clean. The bed was a little soft for my comfort. They serve a full breakfast buffet every morning with both hot and cold selections. Staff was very helpful.

Exceptional hotel, new, spotless rooms and very friendly staff, quiet, view of harbor and Prince William Sound. Excellent variety at breakfast. Before I arrived I looked for a 'pet friendly hotel (which always makes me cringe), but trip was planned on a whim. I need to take my pet, too cold for her to sleep in the car in Valdez in September. No sign or evidence of any animals on the grounds or inside. Very reasonably priced at $200. Will remember this place and stay next time for sure. Room a bit warm but I'll take that over any other thing that could go wrong. Guess they try to keep out of staters cozy. :)

After walking away from our pre-booked accommodation, we received a warm welcome here. A lovely large clean room, great location to walk downtown for food but without excess noise. Great choice of freshly cooked breakfast.

This building is new, as the old one burned a year or so ago. Very clean, spacious rooms. The chairs in the lobby are recliners! No issues at all. It's walkable to many places around town, restaurants, the marina, beautiful scenery. Be sure to walk out to the road & get a photo of the Valdez sign!
