Room was okay.. Small TV WIFI worked. Fridge and microwave is always a huge plus! Kinda gross carpeting...didn't go barefoot. Typical toast/bagel/juice/coffee breakfast.. with a wonderful view! Room next door had a dog that barked and barked. I felt really sad for the dog being really unhappy alone

Hello I would like to thank you for the Review and the positive feedback on our beautiful view. I am sorry that you had a bad experience with a dog barking. Pet owners are supposed to be in the room with their pets but sometimes that do leave them while they go to eat. I am also sorry that you...

Our family stayed in the Jacuzzi room. It was very simple and a bit dated as previous clients have said, but it was clean and the staff was friendly. There was a bar and the patio had a beautiful view of the mountains and ocean. The location is also right down town right by restaurant stores and the ocean. really...

Hello I am glad that you had the opportunity to stay with us. The days of the "dated and simple" are gone. We are now under new ownership and the first thing we have done is taken out carpets on the wall and painted. New beds and larger flat screen TV's will all be in by next month to the...

The hotel is an older place but decent. The room wasn't large and even there it was for three I wouldn't recommend more than two. The bathroom was small but ok. This hotel reminded me of the ones from 20 years ago but it was sufficient for the two days. The staff was friendly and there were on-site rental cars....

This is run by locals who enjoy what they are doing. The owner has passed away, and they are doing a good job keeping it up, until it goes thru probate. It has a fine story of the owner who passed away. The rooms are very comfortable and you can expect fine service from this local place. Beds are good....

We had a great few nights at this motel. The rooms were comfortable without being luxurious, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. A limited breakfast (raisin toast/muffins/croissants) was served in the lounge/bar each morning and there was always tea and coffee available. Lovely views across the water to the mountains. A convenient guest laundry on the...

I was sent to Haines for work and was provided a rental car through the Captain's Choice Motel. They picked me up right after my fight into Haines and had me in my rental car (a very nice and clean late model Subaru Forester) within minutes. Very pleasant interaction and I would highly recommend.

While traveling through Haines we wanted to stay in a fairly priced motel that offered a continental breakfast and was close to the ferry terminal. The front desk staff was nice and helpful. The location is great because it is close to the ocean while still being close to stores and restaurants, with the ferry not too far away as...

I lead a group of seven classic cars and 15 souls from Fairbanks, Alaska. We have stayed here before and were once again treated very well! The facility has some age but is clean and convenient to restaurants, museums, etc. - all within walking distance. The staff were very helpful and friendly. And there was plenty of off-street parking.
