Very disappointed, after paying over $180, to get such a shabby place. Very tired and grotty. Similar to some of those small-town motels so common in the US. Large rooms, but tired decor, shabby. Desk staff who looked totally disinterested. I will certainly avoid.More

I'm sorry you had issues with your room. Our inn has a small-town feel, and that comes through in the style and decor of our rooms. However, if you ever have problems with your accommodations, we want you to feel free to contact our front...More

Stayed at this hotel in July and would not recommend it. If you are staying on the upper floor the floors are thin and you can hear considerable amount of noise. Front hospitality is a little below average. Hotel is suitable for short stays only.More

We're sorry you had issues with noise. You can always contact the front desk with any noise complaints you have, and we'll try to make sure our other guests are reasonably quiet. As for the service, our front of house staff is usually very kind...More

We do have one special rate called the "Alaska Resident Rate" that requires an Alaskan ID, but our other special do not require that. We have many rates available directly on our website, check it out and see for yourself.

Just let us know that you are travelling with a pet, that way we can be sure to reserve a designated pet room for you. Pet fees are $10 per pet, per day.
