A special place, located in what was once a thriving cannery operation. Very interesting. Food was beyond expectation. Setting is magnificent. Christian is incredibly creative. Wonderful breads, salads, entrees, desserts. We stayed 3 nights and did one kayak trip. Former Cordova mayor Kelly was our guide and he was a treasure of local knowledge. The rooms are very basic but... More

Stayed 5 nights and 6 days, the 1st week of July, 2014 Furnishings, cleanliness and staff were average. Was no TV or proper insulation to help drown out noise from surrounding rooms. Lighting was poor. Kitchen staff and food was excellent!!! Scenery was beautiful!!! Boat captan, crew and guides showed no professionalism and the equipment needed to be replaced. They... More

Nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews since 2011 before this unfortunate bombshell...I really appreciate your comments regarding our kitchen staff, food, and amazing scenery but feel as if the rest of your review is pretty far off base. After serving thousands of happy customers throughout the years, we have learned that constructive criticism is very important to running a... More

As the name says, it is an adventure lodge. Just to be in Cordova by it self is and adventure, and the Lodge is different than any other average hotel/motel/inn, not meaning that it is a bad place to stay. The opposite! It is pretty much an adventure camp... So be aware that you're not entering the ritz carton, or... More

By virtue of going to Cordova, located in Prince William Sound, one needs to understand that this is in the bush, meaning the town is only accessible by air or water, so one should not expect 5-star anything. Once the individual understands that, then the fun begins. I was there as part of a family gathering in celebration of a... More

17 days was too short! We wanted to stay forever...our deck was so pleasant with an ever changing but always spectacular view of the sound, the bald eagles, the tides, and waterfall. The staff friendly, knowledgeable, and resourceful. The chef is five star. Airplane tours are a must!

I recently spent a long weekend in Cordova with a friend. We already had plans to sleep elsewhere, but we were looking for a place to rent kayaks for the day. Brian at the Orca Adventure Lodge was incredibly helpful when I called on the phone early in the week, and when we arrived to get kayaks everyone we met... More

The Orca Adventure Lodge in Cordova is phenomenal. I was born and raised in Alaska and travel all over the state for work. This lodge is as close as you can come to the true Alaskan experience. There is nothing fancy about it- kind of like Alaska itself. The rooms are very basic and definitely not "luxury", but if it... More

Brilliant place to stay. First thing to mention is the incredible friendliness of the staff - only too happy to help with anything and there was a really friendly vibe about the place. Room was comfortable and clean, and we were fortunate to get upgraded too :-) Food was great, home-cooked. Really nice touch to have homemade cookies, coffee and... More

Absolutely stunning location at funky cannery site. Beautiful 3 mile walk into town along ocean front road, with views of sea otters, etc. the entire way. Great food at the lodge, wicked sauna, and best place to see the Northern Lights. Great kayaking as well. I was there for Points North Heli Skiing adventure.

It's easy to recommend Orca Adventure Lodge in scenic Cordova, Alaska. Located a little bit out of town, Orca Adventure Lodge is a perfect place from which to base one's exploration of Cordova and environs. Due to the lodge's location, a rental car is recommended. My husband and I stayed in the newer lodge accommodations located in a building separate... More
