We were on a cruise last week and had taken a excellent walking tour with the Tourist Information guide and then needed some lunch. It was cold so we were looking for a comfortable place offering good soup! We found it! This has been a hotel for decades, starting when the Klondike hit town. The restaurant is quite small ,...

This Inn is my first consideration when I am working in Skagway. I had the pleasure of visiting again in July 2017. The Inn was a short 10 minute walk from the airport. On arrival I was given the keys right away for my room. I was in the Essie room this trip. This room has a double bed, and...

Great food, coffee, reasonable price and great service. Stopped in for coffee and end up with the best chowder and the nachos were huge. One serve will feed two adults easily and tasted delicious. An excellent meal.

Thanks for your comments, watch for our new menu for 2017. Mostly the same, but adding some new items to replace and improve on the slower movers. Cheers, Karl

We simple loved the Alice room. It was very nostalgic and comfortable. Even though we live in Southeast, Ak. This was our first trip to Skagway and truly a memorable one. The breakfast and everyone at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. We hope to see you next year!

Came in on motorcycles and the first thing the manager did is have us move the bikes to a small alcove behind the inn; this way they would be away from prying eyes. He also put us near a rear entrance close to our room. The rooms have great character; Dottie's room had the decor of its time- except for...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, the rooms were small but comfortable, quaint and had furnishings in keeping with the late 1800's, each room had a woman's name instead of a number, again reminding us of its former life! The man on front desk was very helpful when booking and offered us a lift to and from the train station, which...

Reasonable accommodations, considering the building is over 100 years old. The rooms are small and not all have bathrooms, but it is every bit as good as I expected it to be and I would definitely stay there again. The owner was very helpful and provided transportation to trail heads and the airport. The rooms are on the second floor...

The Bistro is connected to the Inn but accessible from Broadway. Good selection of dishes at reasonable prices. Both of our main dishes were very tasty and plentiful. Finally the Bread Pudding was some of the best I have had in a long time. Well worth a try.

Though I enjoyed the the hotel ambience, Carl and his staff were absolutely fantastic! Ride to the ferry? No problem! Ride to the helicopter pad? No problem! Hotel food? Delicious! It was just a fun, relaxing time. I would absolutely recommend the Historic Skagway Hotel and I look forward to my return visit!

We were here for the day from a cruise ship & a tour of White Pass & Yukon. At end of day spent walking through town for about 2 hours before getting back on ship. Wanted an adult beverage but bigger "watering holes" were jammed. Happened upon this Inn which serves meals as well as drinks inside and outside. As...
