The Bistro is connected to the Inn but accessible from Broadway. Good selection of dishes at reasonable prices. Both of our main dishes were very tasty and plentiful. Finally the Bread Pudding was some of the best I have had in a long time. Well worth a try.

Though I enjoyed the the hotel ambience, Carl and his staff were absolutely fantastic! Ride to the ferry? No problem! Ride to the helicopter pad? No problem! Hotel food? Delicious! It was just a fun, relaxing time. I would absolutely recommend the Historic Skagway Hotel and I look forward to my return visit!

We were here for the day from a cruise ship & a tour of White Pass & Yukon. At end of day spent walking through town for about 2 hours before getting back on ship. Wanted an adult beverage but bigger "watering holes" were jammed. Happened upon this Inn which serves meals as well as drinks inside and outside. As... More

Overall we had a wonderful stay, the service and quality were excellent. We really enjoyed the historic feel of the Inn. They had beautiful gardens and the service was very, very good. The owners and management have done a great job to preserve the historic elements of the building right down to some fine details in the room. It's a... More

The Owner greeted us upon arrival and allowed us to use room earlier than normal check-in. The room was clean. The on-site Bistro, run by daughter of the Owner had excellent food and nice atmosphere. The Owner's wife helped us with local travel information. They provided transportation to the ferry at the end of our stay. The rooms are small... More

So much fun staying in a renovated bordello! Carl the attentive innkeeper met my at the Fjordlines although I though I had forgotten to ask him too. Olivia's Bistro has great food and the bar has good selection wine. Always enjoy the old time feel of Skagway will return next year perhaps stay in Birdies room! Thanks!

Stayed at the Skagway Historic Inn for a total of two weeks this spring while working in Alaska. Absolutely loved the friendly, laid-back atmosphere and the fantastic personal service that Karl provided for our crew. He picked us up and delivered us to the airport, along with all of our gear, got up at unbelievably early hours to make sure... More

There was thick dust and grime on every surface from the bedside table (only one in a double room) to all the "historic" knick-knacks (read tat). The en-suite half bathroom was not only lacking in a bath or shower (UK English and US English are really two different languages), the wash-basin didn't even have a plug for the plug-hole! There...

If you are a national-chain hotel lodging fan, well, Skagway and all of rural Alaska is a place you should visit vicariously through travel logs/blogs whatever. Ok, so you are an independent traveler? Good because the Historic Skagway Inn is a place you probably will like. This is a historic building so the rooms are cozy (rooms were smaller in... More
