Among Haines’ handful of local motels, Captain’s Choice is also my first choice. It’s got a central location and a pleasant seaside vibe. The nautically-themed rooms have ship’s lanterns, lots of honey colored pine, and a blue carpeting that climbs the wall like wainscoting. Ask for a room with view—it will cost the same as a room without view. If it's available, get room no. 26. It's an end unit with a private deck, and it's got the very best view in the hotel. This is also a good place for families, as there's a big family-sized room that easily sleeps 4.
