Recently spent a couple of weeks in Alaska and my wife and I's favorite town was Sitka. Amazing hiking trails, great restaurants by Alaska standards and just a great little town in a beautiful setting. Not as much cruise ship traffic as some of the other alaskan towns, but still enough in the way of restaurants and things to do to make it worthwhile. We both wished we had spent more time here. I've also heard the fishing is amazing, but we didn't do any until later in the trip.
The Totem Square Inn was a great place to stay in Sitka. A nice modern motel with the standard conveniences (no air conditioning anywhere in AK that we saw), great location (right on the water, downtown), clean comfortable rooms at a fairly afordable rate and friendly knowledgable staff. They also had inexpensive coin-operated laundry downstairs which was very nice after a week of living out of our suitcases. Free Wireless in the rooms and computers with printers down in the lobby were another bonus.
The hotel is also right around the corner from the Pioneer bar and liquor store and just a little further to Ludvig's which was the best restaurant we visited in Alaska. You really couldn't ask for more in this cool little town.
The only knocks I had were a loud exhaust fan from the kitchen right outside our window, and the restaurant itself isn't great. However you're only a few blocks from pretty much every restaurant in town so not much of a problem.
I would definately recommend this place to others and I'd stay here again if I was in Sitka.
