The room was comfortable, the hotel was clean. I found Ketchikan's motels to be the most expensive on my trip in December 2003 through Southeast Alaska. At over $80 a night in the middle of the winter, all the places in town seem to be overcharging because once you are there it's hard to get anywhere else (island mentality). But, the Super 8 is probably one of the cheaper places in Ketchikan.
I am always a little bugged with establishments label themselves "motel", but you can't park in front of your room. Super 8 takes their name from a national chain, so they probably can't change it to fit the type of building they have. In Ketchikan is located near the Plaza, so they compete with parking spots with a lot of businesses. You're also near the McDonald's dumpster, so there are a lot of sea gulls and eagles looking for food around there. They make a mess of cars.
Unique Quality: They let you do the laundry in the middle of the night, and remind you with signs to leave other people's laundry alone. They decorate for the holidays and keep the kids entertained.
Also, the view of the Tongass Narrows is nice. But if it is windy, keep your windows closed when you are out of room! It rains sideways in Ketchikan and you might find your room full of water.
