Fodor's Review

All guest rooms in this lovingly restored historic building are tastefully decorated with antiques and quilts. The building was used as a women's dormitory during the farm colonization of the 1930s, and it still has a bit of a dorm vibe to it. The small café ($–$$) serves lunch and dinner. Be sure to try one of the homemade pies; the recipes have won blue ribbons at the Alaska State Fair. Inn reservations and check-in are handled at the Valley Hotel, at 606 South Alaska Street.
