We had a nice room which looked recently updated on the second level. The bed was so comfy and the linens and shower with massager nice. I liked all of the authentic Alaskan interiors and the location right off the water. This place made sense for our family as It was five minutes from Old Town Kenai, the Kenai Airport... More

I was travelling on business in Kenai, Alaska and a friend recommended this hotel, and I'm glad he did. What a great little hotel with big character. The rooms are big and comfortable and the people who run it have a great sense of humor. The best part is that Louie's Restaurant is at the front of hotel. Its walls... More

What a great surprise, everyone was friendly and helpful, the food was fantastic. The whole place was clean and in the perfect location for my business trip to Kenai. If I return to Kenai I am positive that this is where I will stay and I recommend it completely.

We stayed one night at the Uptown at the end of our AK vacation. Although our room was a little small, it was clean and offered good quality towels and linens. I visited the on site sports bar which had s nice selection of craft beers and food could be ordered from the hotel restaurant. The bartender was busy but... More

This is my preferred hotel when traveling to Kenai on business. I had a nice room with a king size bed, a refigerator and microwave. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and Louie's Restaurant can't be beat!

Don't let the unassuming exterior of the Uptown Motel dissuade you from staying here. It's a charming place with an interesting lobby filled with antiques and other Alaskan memorabilia. The rooms are clean, the service was good, and the location near the mouth of the Kenai river can't be beat. Other pluses include Louies restaurant which is attached to the... More

Having traveled to kenai alaska on numerous occassions, I can emphatically say that the Uptown is without question the best value to be found on the Kenai. The restaurent and lounge add to it's reputation. The place is run very professional and the staff is great. Louie's restaurent is on par with The Crows Nest, Simon and Seaforts, and Club... More

Not much to expect when in Kenai when it comes to hotels. The rooms are dated and you need to get one that is not next to the bar... they keep the door open and smoke from all of the smokers travels down the hall along with all of the noise. The restaurant is great to eat at for dinner... More
