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!

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.

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... More

Nice family owns this. We stayed in two different rooms at two different times. Very homey and comfortable. The newer addition in the back probably is in better shape, but my husband enjoyed all the carpentry work done in the older wing. Very nice!! It was like going to visit in your best friend's house. Lobby is open for coffee... More

Room was very nice, quiet and comfortable and clean. The office area was a bit of a mess but this adds to the character of the place. Office area has a fairly extensive "leave a book/take a book" area - nice! Staff are all wonderful folks. Overall, would definitely recommend Sgt. Preston's Lodge. Walking distance to everything. Oh wait, this... More

I enjoyed my stay at Sgt Preston's. If you like a small eclectic place and a chance to chat with the owners you'll be comfortable here. Nothing fancy but clean and cozy. I felt welcome. Hiked the Chilkoot trail so I started and ended my visit to Skagway here. Skagway is small and walkable and this hotel is centrally located.
