“Worn, dirty hotel with noisy rooms, in central location.”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This hotel has much unrealized potential. It is located right across the street from the harbor and is just two blocks away from Kodiak Island Brewing Company.
My room was dirty and had a view of the parking lot, right at bumper level. The room was very noisy due to the old creeping floors. The bathroom was generally dirty and the tub didn't drain. If you must stay here, get a room on the top floor for less noise.

Large clean rooms. Friendly helpful personel. The best free buffet breakfast I've had in a motel. Convenient location. The restaurant serves very good food,may be a little pricy but it is Alaska What more do you need? I recomend it to anyone going to Kodiak.

If you wish to be downtown within walking distance of almost everything, this is your place. The property is a bit dated, yet not an issue. It was very clean and secondly most important very quiet. Breakfast is included (for us, anyway) which is a big bonus. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I do not recommend having dinner in the dinning room, but that is a topic for an additional review.

Very good hotel, convenient and friendly. Come on snobs, this is not NYC, the hotel was clean, comfortable, friendly. Kodiak is a working island not really a tourist trap - thank goodness. The restaurant was excellent the night I was there, I was quite surprised, I was expecting a good meal, but got a great one. You could walk to virtually the whole town, they had a free shuttle to the Ferry Terminal and/or the airport.

Maybe it's because I look forward to annual business trips to Alaska's Emerald Isle, but I always find this hotel to be very welcoming and comfortable. Great front desk staff. It's Kodiak's best for comfort, convenience and reliable wi-fi everywhere on the premises. It's also conveniently located to much of the business I need to tend to, All the rooms have thermostats that allow the occupant to choose how hot or cold they want to be, plus all those amenities that I never take for granted: coffee and tea pot, microwave, hair dryer, refrigerator, radio alarm clock and cable TV. All these make for a cozier stay when it rains in Kodiak, and folks, it rains a LOT. The hotel's restaurant has a good menu and also serves a complimentary buffet breakfast on the second floor, a great networking area overlooking Kodiak's beautiful harbor with fishing boats, and our incredible eagles flying overhead.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage, ask for a room where you won't have to do a lot of hauling down lo...

I stayed at the Best Western Kodiak Inn, during a business trip. I enjoyed the welcoming Alaskan decor of the lobby. Staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were clean and in good condition, but the bathrooms are uncomfortably small.

Parking is horrible. I visited during the off-season and found that parking near the hotel to be a rare commodity; I would dread staying here during tourist season.

I would also strongly recommend that if you stay here, that you should request a room away from the hot tub... I had a few nights with zero rest.
