“Excellent Overnight Stay”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I spent one night prior to staying at the fishing lodge, very clean, excellent service and quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lobby was very clean upon arrival, room was also very clean. Morning snacks and coffee were great. Highly recommend you overnight here while visiting Sitka.

We stayed here, for two nights, after a cruise w/ Alaskan Dream Cruises, before we headed to interior Alaska. It's nicely located: an easy walking distance from attractions. The rooms were clean and spacious. I really appreciated the washer/dryer on the first floor! Our room looked out on the Marina, and, with the window open, we heard loud partying well into the night.

My husband and I stayed at the Totem Square for one night before heading off on a cruise with "Alaskan Dream Cruises". It was a decent, basic hotel. The location is good, close to the cathedral, docks and historic places. It had a pleasant looking restaurant/bar, which we did not try because it was not open for breakfast (they directed us to another near-by hotel which did serve breakfast). If situated elsewhere, I would say it was expensive for what it was, but it was Alaska during the tourist season so it was OK.

This hotel was booked as part of a fishing package I'd purchased. The fishing lodge was full so they put us at the Totem Square. I'd called ahead (a couple times) and requested a water view room, but when we arrived, they had no record of my request. The girls at the front desk were in no hurry to check us in, or to be helpful for that matter, the surly attitude was even more effective after a 10 hour flight. The room was small and not very nice. You know how they say a mattress only lasts 7 years? This one was on year 8. On the 3rd day I paid $100 more a night to upgrade to the 2-room suite, well worth it! The bed in this room was slightly better. We even had a pretty water view! The hotel is in a good location, walk to everything but still quiet. There is a restaurant there called the Dock Shack, that's another review (and not a good one). By the last day, the surly girls were even friendly! Sitka is a truly beautiful town, and this hotel was fine in the end. I wish I'd booked the suite for all nights, but it turned out OK.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and book the 2 room suite! Well worth it!

We had a comfortable stay here but would not need to put it on our "must stay again" list. We were lucky to find accommodation in Sitka as the place books up early with travellers off to discover Alaska. The hotel is in a central location of Sitka so handy to all spots in town.

I have now stayed at every hotel in Sitka and conclude that they're all disappointing. The Totem smells funny and has just acceptable rooms. The industrial dispensers for shampoo and soap are a turn off. Plus, it's expensive. If you're visiting Sitka, do yourself a favor - skip the hotels and book with one of the many fine B&Bs in this town.

Only spent one night there on business. Room was clean but small. Ok for a single traveler on business. Nothing fancy. Front desk was friendly. Great location within walking distance to town. I would stay there again.
