My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Captain's Choice while touring through SE Alaska. Next time I would check into one of the B & Bs in town. Our room was "rustic" with old fashioned wood paneling, an uncomfortable bed (unless you like very firm mattresses and flat pillows), tv, toiletries, hair dryer, microwave and fridge, and basic furnishings. The pipes were noisy when people in other rooms were showering etc, and you could hear folks moving around because of the squeaky floors and thin walls. The place could use some soundproofing.
The "continental breakfast" was the skimpiest I'd ever seen with a few muffins, some cinnamon bread, bagels, coffee and juice.
On the good side, ask for a waterside room because the view of Lynn Canal is awesome, especially from the upper floor. You can watch the cruise ships go by, eagles flying over, and the sun over the mountains. The staff were helpful and pleasant, and provided a shuttle to the airport when we left. We also rented a car for a day through the hotel, and there are laundry facilities on site which we used.
