Totem Inn cabin stay

We stayed in one of their cabins. There was plenty of room for the two of us. It was very quiet and clean. The restaurant at the Totem Inn is great with generous servings. Many locals eat there, so that's a good indication of quality and value.

cancellation

Had to cancel our reservation as the AMHS is not a very reliable means of transportation and could not make our booking at the hotel. The hotel was very gracious in accepting our cancellation.

Best in Valdez

I travel to Valdez for work at the Alyeska Terminal often. I have stayed at most of the hotels in Valdez. The Totem Inn is by far the best! Big rooms, nice staff and they have an excellent restaurant on site. The only time I am not happy is when they are booked!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Take a Helicopter Tour of the Columbia Glacier with Vertical Solutions. I took my wife when she came up with me this year. It was truly a once in a lifetime amazing experience. I thought I had seen it all, but no. You can actually hear the glacier moving down the mountain and the calving events are awe inspiring. Words cannot describe it!

It was good.

It was a fishing trip. Although we did not catch any due to fact that it was raining the whole weekend, we just stay in the hotel most of the time and rest.

Pricey but clean

The hotel is conveniently located to the downtown area. We stayed in one of the standalone cottages behind the hotel. It was acceptably clean, although not spotless. The bed was a bit saggy. The staff I encountered were all very nice and helpful. Our dog was allowed to stay for an extra $10. We had a great dinner in the restaurant. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend, so even though it seemed expensive at $180, we have to consider the location and the time. Valdez is a beautiful city to visit, and it's swamped over the holiday weekends. We were allowed to check in almost 2 hours early, so I appreciated that after the long drive down from Fairbanks.

Not recommended

Room, hotel, restaurant had heavy smell of mould. We got only one towel in the room, and in the morning housekeeping supervisor was after us blaming us that we took towels! Though, she apologized when we told her we got only one towel. Room carpet was covered in stains. In our room we could completely hear conversations from the staff room, noisy. Food in the restaurant was good.
