“Nice Hotel - Great Location”
Reviewed August 8, 2005

We ended up staying at this hotel after arriving at another facility that definitely did not meet our needs. The location is great, right on the harbor. And our room had a nice view of the harbor. I think this is probably the best place to stay in Valdez!

We called ahead to alert Harbor Inn that we travel with an assistance dog. They said no problem. We checked in and had no problem until the next morning. Desk clerk informed us that we couldn't stay in the room we were in because of the dog. Said we HAD to move to a smoking room. I can't stay in smoking room, I'm very allergic to tobacco smoke, even residual. We decided to be polite because I hate 'scenes' and we would just leave. We would stay at a different hotel, even though the clerk and manager were in violation of Americans with Disabilities Act law by denying access to a service dog. As we were leaving, my friend took a photo of the lobby. The staff called the police because, as she said in heavily accented English "You can't take me picture. No, no, no picture." She wouldn't let us leave until a police officer showed up. The officer who responded was very polite and quite puzzled by the whole situation. We had him watch as we deleted the photo that offended. We left, cutting our trip short and leaving Valdez with a rather sour taste in our mouths. We are both involved heavily in tourism; my travelling companion is an internationally known author on cultural tourism and marketing. We travel extensively and have international experience. We are (and were) very polite and non-confrontational. The episode was totally uncalled for, embarassing and humiliating. The hotel was also under construction, noisy, smelled of diesel exhaust from equipment working around building, and basically an unpleasant place to stay. We do NOT recommend this establishment. They need staff training on customer service, basic manners, and ADA law compliance.
