Totem Square Hotel & Marina
Ranked #7 of 8 Hotels in Sitka
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We stayed here for one night before our cruise. No problems, no complaints. Front desk was professional and friendly. Room was adequate. We requested a room with a view of the harbor which we got. Location was great. Breakfast was not an issue since a group breakfast was arranged.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor.

Clean comfortable hotel, very friendly and obliging staff. Nice Restaurant by water with great outlook. Not open for breakfast however. Food was good. Central location
There doesnt appear to be much to choose from in Sitka with regards to accommodation

The hotel itself is nothing to write home about: we had a double view room (of the harbor)--- very small and dated. We asked for no housekeeping (do not disturb sign on our door), but someone entered our room anyway in our absence (not to replace towels or anything....just entered!). Desk staff very friendly. View was very nice and certainly beat the alternatives: parking lot and road. VERY disappointing is that the restaurant downstairs (don't think part of hotel) does not serve breakfast. Always a hassle to have to get dressed to coffee and a bite to start the day. I did like that this hotel run by native Alaskans and would return.

Room Tip: When you reserve, specify view of harbor room.

First, your choices in Sitka for hotels (or anything else) are fairly constrained, especially if you are in town pre or post cruise like many others at the same time. This hotel was fine for what I wanted - a night before leaving for an inside passage small boat cruise. Rooms were clean and big enough, good shower, coffee maker in room (might have returned them after previous comments). Free coffee downstairs in little gift shop area. Very friendly and helpful staff and airport shuttle. No breakfast. Nice deck and food service/bar operation. We just had beers on the deck and watched fishing boats come and go. Nice. Our room faced the street and the bar across the street - there was some noise early on in the evening but due to jet lag and travel, didn't have trouble getting a good night's sleep. Other room locations would definitely be quieter. You do pay plenty to stay here, compared to what the cost would get you in most places in the lower 48. But that's the way it is.....

We agree with other reviewers that the workers here are very friendly. We stayed here because we needed the guest laundry after being on an Inside Passage cruise for a week. Nice location by waterfront, small sunny park, old folks home with pretty garden. No breakfast in restaurant--went to nearby Victoria's. Our room was noisy, as others report--a few slamming doors, and the airport is nearby (although not many flights taking off from this small town), as are floatplanes (every day at 5:30 AM and throughout the day during our 2-night stay). White noise machine available at front desk, if you want it. Decor is dated, spartan, yet clean (needed to air the bleach smell out of the room upon arrival). We stayed here during a heat wave and it was hot in our 4th-floor room. Strange that they wouldn't use the hotel van to take us to the ferry landing!! Why not? Very expensive for what you get, but this is Alaska and all of our hotels were expensive!!!

This is a hotel without breakfast, sorry. You have to go somewhere else to have a breakfast there. When you choose a room don't take the one overlooking the street, it gets very very noisy during weekends. Staff is nice though. There is nothing more to write about this hotel.

We knew that Alaska was expensive, but even by this measure the Shee Atika comes up short in terms of value for money. Everything about the hotel is ordinary; decor, rooms and service - nothing wrong with them but not worth $200+.

When one adds air conditioning that doesn't work; wi-fi that worked sporadically, and then an advertised complimentary breakfast that didn't exist then it is really hard to see the merit of staying here.

Judging by the quality of B&Bs we have experienced elsewhere on our trip and other comments on Sitka accommodations generally B&Bs look to be a preferable option.
