Sgt. Preston's Lodge
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Skagway
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2017

Not your standard, hotel room that you find in all of the chain hotels. But the beds are clean and comfortable, the rooms are well equiped and recently renovated. Mini frig, microwave, nice table by the window. Providing a very comfortable place in down town to dry off before heading back out for more sight seeing in this historic gold rush town that still has the feel that you might bump into SGT Preston just around the corner.

Room Tip: Hotel Owner is a great source of info on what you should not miss in town.

Don't judge by outside appearance. Booked this on line, but upon arrival, from the outside and the lobby, was afraid I had made a big mistake. Not so once inside the NEWLY refurbished rooms . Very nice, clean, new from the wall studs out. Not the largest rooms but plenty of room for two. Would definitely stay again!

Stayed: August 2016

Somewhere there is a sign that states "Alaska closed mid-September to mid-May. I was stuck in Skagway on my way home from Whitehorse, Yukon. Fortunately Sgt. Preston's Lodge is open in October. The rates are good for this area and the rooms are very nice. Clean and comfortable with a very good bed. I highly recommend staying with these friendly folks.

This is a really good motel to stay if you happen to spend the night in Skagway, Alaska. I saw two of their rooms and they were much better than what I expected. From the outside, it may look bad. However, you may be surprised with the excellent condition inside it. Small fridge in the rooms, spacious bathroom ( I really liked my bathroom!), cotton swabs and hand tissue in the bathroom, microwave, TV and a card beside your bed telling you all the channels. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, high ceiling. I strongly recommend this motel. I stayed at this motel September 2016.

On the other hand, wi-fi was /is weak. They gave me two passwords and they did not work.

Ps: A note to the owners if you happen to read this post: Do some work outside your property. It will certainly attract more people.

Room Tip: Do not rely on wi-fi, choose this motel to sleep.
