Nice place, nice location. The view is wonderful. Making the reservation was pleasant and they offered us a nice room with a great view and deck. It is great that they serve a continental breakfast. We rented a car from the hotel which was about $75/day for a decent but worn vehicle. But the process of renting the car was smooth and we were glad to be able to do it. Also, we arrived at the Haines airport and called for the "courtesy shuttle" only to find that there wasn't one that day so we had to wait for a cab....the only cab in town that charged us $20 a person for about a five mile drive. The driver was gruff and said he had just picked up beer and the liquor store (that's comforting)....when we got to the Captain's Choice we realized there was an ongoing issue with the cab service because he is the only cab in town and rips everyone off. The clerk paid me for 1/2 the cab fare, but I had asked for the second 1/2 since they had promised me the shuttle. But don't let this stop you from staying at the Captain's Choice though....it is a nice place.
