On arrival met by the totally disinterested receptionist with a face set in stone and who's command of English was little more than a grunt. we called her "The Plank" ...and even a plank has arguably more personality than this person. On getting to our room it is hot and stuffy and the air conditioner does not work....so open the...

The rooms were very basic and the price was high. It appears that there is not competition in this town for hotels...I don't think that they change the mattresses much as the two rooms we rented were inadequate. One of the nights we stayed the local bar closed late at night and we heard the party continue for another hour...

Rooms are very small and basic. It felt like being in a dorm. No dining facilities. The location on the water front is the only thing going for it. A lot of street noise and very expensive. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Sitka itself is a quaint town.

This hotel has decent rooms in a good location. We were warned to get a room on the Sitka city side, not on the north side, to avoid noise from the nearby bar. Our dinner there was OK, and the breakfast was also OK.

Rooms are fine but bath is small somewhat worn. Vanity very low and small. Room included small refrigerator and microwave. Just don't let the price cause your expectations to get too high. The attached restaurant and bar are only open May to Aug.

We stayed one night before a Nat geo cruise and if you can fly in on the day the cruise starts, do so. The rooms are basic, small and a bit tatty. Breakfast was poor and the one server was run off her feet. One good feature was they have a guest laundry.

Room faced the marina and was reasonably quiet. We were here during excellent sunny weather and room was very warm. Fortunately the window opened. This pretty much a two to three star hotel. Location is great and Sitka was spectacular. Fully booked. Restaurant was closed so maybe that helped keep the noise down.

My room was large enough for me and my charter boat picked me up right at the hotel's dock in the morning. The dining room opened at 5:00 am enabling me to have breakfast every day prior to going out to sea. The hotel is right next to Lincoln Street and all the shops running through the center of town....

Our one week stay at the Totem Square Inn was a bit different experience than a lot of the reviews I have read here. I was a bit anxious about how the one week stay for three of us would go after reading all of these negative reviews. I think some people need to realize that Sitka is primarily a...

My stay at the Totem Square Inn was an enjoyable one. The room was well appointed, roomy, and comfortable. There is a nice café in the hotel that has a breakfast buffet in the morning. The café looks over the small boat harbor. A very nice place to stay in Sitka.
