So i didn't have extremely high expectations for lodging knowing that I was going to an extremely remote part of Alaska. Though quite outdated inside, I thought this motel was just fine. Everything was clean, the staff was very friendly and the views right outside the door was droolworthy. It's very close to the water and situated well for walks....

The room was adequately furnished and equipped, and the bed was fine. The views from our room were outstanding, the kind where you feel like just sitting by the window and looking out over the mountains and the sea. The complimentary breakfast was ok, just a shame that they no longer offer a restaurant service for other meals. Not a...

Hello Martin I am glad that you were happy with the location and the view. Just to clarify on a few comments: We never did have restaurant service. We had a lounge that we voluntarily closed for we are still under probate since the death of the owner. As soon as we are thru that process the Lounge will reopen....

The property is years past its prime. The glue down carpet was filthy and coming up, the sheets were the tuck in type, not contour, the TV was one of the first ones with a remote. My wife and daughter--in-law both woke up with bites on their legs, and they were in different rooms. The ceilings were not much, if...

Cheryl K, Manager at Captain's Choice Motel, responded to this review

Hello I'd like to respond to your comments at this time. We have a staff on for 24 hours so if there was a problem I would have appreciated that you let us know. As to bites perhaps it was because we tell our guests about the bear viewing at the Chilkoot and you do get bitten by the insects...

My parents stayed during my mom's 70th birthday trip on the Alaskan Coast Marine Highway. My mom's card was hacked, after they had already left. Many hotels would not let them stay, because they had no working card. This motel went above and beyond to make their trip wonderful and a memorable experience. Thank you for your warm hospitality.

We loved this place. The view from our room was to die for. The rooms were just fine and they were clean. Amenities included a refrigerator, microwave and a coffee pot. Staff was nice and friendly and the morning breakfast was great. The hotel also offers ferry shuttle service. We would definitely stay here if we returned to Haines.

We stayed in this hotel June 2015 and thank goodness it was only for 1 night. The only reason we chose this hotel was because it's the cheapest and we literally just had to sleep and shower in this hotel, nothing else. They don't offer free wifi, so we had to go to a restaurant that offers it so we...

Although our trip was short, and if we ever had a choice we would choose somewhere else to stay. The walls were insanely thin and we could hear our neighbour. TV was small and old. The bathroom was neat but the bathtub had a couple of hairs in it which was really gross. The soap didn't smell good at all....

We stayed here for 2 nights in late september. On arrival we were pointed in the general direction of our room which luckily was on the same level as Reception and had views across the harbour. The room was dated and basic but fortunately was clean. Haines is a small town and the motel is within easy walking distance of...

The hotel is very dated but the staff is very nice. We arrived late from the ferry. There were no parking spots left when we arrived but we could park in a lot across the street. The view from our room was beautiful. The room itself was very dated the decor was straight out of the 1970s. The lounge looked...

First of all, the photo up there? It's not the Captain's Choice. It's a bar and restaurant across the street....with that said, the CC is a very basic room. It was clean and somewhat comfortable. I just needed a place for the night while I waited for the Ferry. Besides smelling really weird, it was fine. The front desk staff...
