We are used to staying in the harbor area when visiting Sitka, but on this trip down to enjoy the Summer Music Festival, all those hotels were booked solid. I found this little place via internet search and we were pretty happy with the experience. It's very clean, the in-room amenities better than average (including a little individually packaged luffa scrubbie), and the breakfast choices were way beyond the usual "continental" choices and included many organic options and a hot protein each morning, such as scrambled eggs. Beds were comfy, shower pressure good, with lots of hot water. The view from our room of the bay and beach across the street was OK, even better was being able to walk right to it across the street in less than 2 minutes.
We found most of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We had a rental car, but we heard staff arranging free shuttle pick ups for guests arriving at the airport, ferry and cruise ship docks even in the middle of the night!
All rooms are on the second floor and we were a little disappointed that there was no elevator for our son with cerebral palsy, but he was able to climb up and down the stairs with assistance. the only problem we had was with a plugged toilet late at night and with no staff available to give us a plunger until the morning we had to sneak down to the first floor and use the normally off limits staff bathroom. Not fun.
I would definitely stay here again, and look forward to checking out the other shops such as the natural foods store and movie theater in the mall area the next time we come down.
