Room was very basic, clean, had what we needed, however there was NO hot water in the morning, not sure what was going on since no one was available in the lobby and it was quite early we did not want to disrupt anyone's sleep.

Room was what we needed. I would recommend staying here. I was surprised our room #8 was updated (I wasn’t expecting that) it had everything we needed. The only downside is, the walls are thin so you can hear all your neighbors and anyone running outside you hear them.

There was no wifi in the economy rooms (only room available). I thought that since the restaurant closed at 10pm we wouldn't have to worry too much about noise, but the music was loud until much later, it actually got louder after the restaurant closed. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean other than a weird stain on the carpet. I will not stay here again...maybe if I was more of a partier...

New and clean rooms. Centrally located to all attractions. Staff was friendly and nice. The restaurant attached had a great breakfast and the bar on the other side, the "Happy Endings" (named after the owners father apparently and a fun play on words) had a cornhole setup in the backyard which was really fun. Had a great time and would definitely stay again. I love a place with a good sense of humor. Side note, the restaurant seems to be a favorite with the locals and is open all year round. A+

These digs are tops! To be greeted by the familiar warm hospitality of the feeling of friendship was really special. The Morning Wood Hotel does an excellent job of attending to all the details. Amenities galore! Yeah; central location, refreshing, clean, brand new rooms; power outlets everywhere, temperature control, quality coffee, clean-ingredient body care products. On-site lively restaurant with beer, wine and spirits. Thanks!

Phenomenal! The courtesy, hospitality and the genuine down to earth care was wonderful. They went above and beyond to help me when I came into town. If you have the chance to stay here I highly recommend it, if not, go to the Station next door, grab a beer and some food and you will be equally satisfied with the service. I have never felt so welcomed to an establishment, town or state as I did on that day.

After a fun night out at the Happy Endings Saloon, it was so nice to be able to climb into a comfy bed at the Morning Wood Hotel’s new wing that’s just a few steps away. No need for a dedicated driver or having to fight an almost hopeless battle with the gusty wind in the dark trying to get home. Door locked, curtains drawn, TV on, comforter over me; I was a happy camper. After a night's peaceful rest in the Wood, I had breakfast at the Pizza Station before checking out and start another new day. It’s so rough to be a local in the winter here in Skagway.
