Fodor's Expert Review Gilmore Hotel

326 Front St., Ketchikan, Alaska, 99901, USA

Crammed between the large buildings along Front Street, the Gilmore is a rustic historic property best suited for travelers who value character over modern amenities. Thanks to its small dimensions, the late-1920s-era lobby has a European feel, and the front desk is staffed by friendly locals. All rooms are on the second or third floors, with no elevator. Downstairs, Annabelle's Famous Keg and Chowder House serves seafood, pasta, and prime rib. Upgrade to one of the marina-view rooms; otherwise, you will be facing the wall of the building next door.
