“Convenient, comfortable, accommodating”
Reviewed August 4, 2009

We stayed here in two different rooms, one night before our yacht trip and one night afterwards. The rooms were large and comfortable with the usual accoutrements of coffee pot, TV, Wi-fi, hair dryer. It is not inexpensive, but this is Alaska. One of the staff at the desk can be rather short and brusque, and the continental breakfast is limited to OJ, muffins, and coffee, but overall a good experience. Centrally located downtown. The Wi-FI charge is $3 daily and when it is down it can be down for hours (as happened with us) if there's a temporary power outage.

The room was perfect. We had a king bed, nice bathroom, separate lavatory outside the bathroom (a big plus for me), nice view of the harbour, great service, great price (about $110). Note, there is no parking associated with the hotel. We parked in a free lot across the street which was fine with me, but could be a problem at a very busy time of year. You cannot park on the street during the day for more than one hour. The town and its surroundings are very very pretty. Petersburg is a little short on restaurants. We ate everyday at the Northern Lights which was fine, but basic. The NL also has a great harbour view with lots of eagles flying about. The Scandia also rents outboard motorboats for a reasonable price, although we decided against this for this trip.

The Scandia house is one of the few places to stay in Petersburg. In spite of the limited choices the Scandia House is very welcoming. The hotel is fairly new and the rooms are nicely sized. There are strong Norskie influences in the area, and in the hotel's finishes.
The continental breakfast is some locally made, fresh muffins, coffee, and juice. There is a coffee shop next door and the two local beakfast places are a few blocks away. The waterfront and the piers are close by.
We got held in by the weather and discovered there was no room to be had. So, for lots of travellers its the first choice in the town.

  • Liked — Great location near waterfront, piers, and restaurant.
  • Disliked — N/A

WE greatly enjoyed staying at the Scandia House--large very clean comfortable room; exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. They let us store some things in their refrigerator. Even though it is a small hotel, we felt very at home and welcome. Parking was easy in the rear; my husband caught great halibut; we could walk to everything. I recommend it and would definitely stay there again.

The Scandia House is situated in a perfect location near Petersburg docks and the famous Sing Lee Ally. It was rebuilt a few years ago following a fire and is without doubt the most comfortable establishment in Petersburg.
I bring a group of Australians each year to Alaska with Petersburg being our first stop. The management & staff at Scandia House make us feel so welcome and excited to be in Alaska. The rooms are large, clean & most have kitchen facilities. They have a car rental available on site, which saves time searching. On our trip last year we caught a number of salmon & halibut and the manager of the hotel even provided her own portable BBQ for us to cook the fish on. If you are looking for a place to stay that provides clean, comfortable rooms, great management & staff in a downtown location I highly recommend Scandia House.
