We booked a waterfront/view room which was very nice, however, the room was very, very small. There is a bar just down the street from the hotel so expect some noise (well into the night) from the groups of people making there way to/from. The hotel has a FREE airport shuttle which made it very convenient getting to/from. There is...

We were a bit disappointed at how high priced the rooms were for how small they are. Not sure how the other hotels in town compare room size/price but I'd research that before we make another visit. The wi-fi didn't work the 3 days were were there, luckily it worked fine in the business center. Everyone was nice & accommodating...

We stayed at the Totem Place for two nights. That was more than enough. The room was pretty basic and in great need of updating. Everything worked, but it wasn't pleasant. Staff was pleasant but not the friendliest we met in Alaska. The best thing about this hotel was its location. It is right at the beginning of the main...

Had a nice stay. Room was clean w/ great view of harbor. Front desk staff was very helpful, thanks for letting us use some freezer space over night. No AC just open a window. The bar / restaurant seems to shut down early every evening so went someplace else for dinner and drinks. Yes there's a local pub on back...

My friends and I stayed one night. The place is by the marina, is quiet and the rooms are spacious. The staff is friendly and helpful. However we believe that the rooms are over priced. Sitka is a small town and everything is within walking distance.

We stayed here for one night which was more than enough! It was in a good location for starting our expedition cruise which docked beside Totem Square hotel. The first room we were given was appalling with a broken toilet that has the plumbers tools left in the room and the room was small and out of date. When I...

Friendly, helpful staff. Hotel interior a bit shabby with dark alcoves, very messy toilet and plain as possible public spaces. Room acceptable with few amenities but there was an in-room coffee maker. The hotel neither added nor especially detracted from our interesting visit to Sitka. Hotel restaurant was disappointing. Service was interesting and very good (interns from Jamaica) but the...

Room had a nice view, restaurant was closed. Beds were comfortable. Stayed over a night after a small ship cruise. No complaints, expensive, but consider the choices. Received a discount from cruise company.

It was nice having a courtesy van to pick me up and drop me at the airport, but the room was a little disappointing-no hair conditioner, no lotion, no shower cap or shoe shine cloth, no guest folio and no customer comment card, and all but one theft proof coat hangers that can't be moved to use for drying clothes...
