I was skeptical when we pulled up because the outside of the hotel looks old. However I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were nice and comfy. The restaurant was very good and staff helpful. I would stay again if I was in the area.

This little motel is a great place to stay. We were happily surprised with this motel because the outside is not fancy in the least, but the inside has lots of interesting surprises. The decor is rustic antique and features a cool antique cash register when you first come through the door to check in. The connected restaurant features all... More

Upon arriving the gal at the front desk said our room number was 14 and was located on the first floor at the end of the hall. We got our bags from the car and headed down the hall, the room numbers only went to 12. We lugged the bags back to the front desk and she said room 14... More

We stayed our last night in Alaska at the Uptown Motel. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the hotel. We stayed in the main building. The rooms were small but bed was ok. Loved the fact we could walk to Louie's and enjoy a good meal. My only down is why is the sink in the room and... More

The Uptown Motel is a bit older, but is very charming and has a great restaurant. With a great restaurant that even the locals go to for their steaks and seafood, wonderful service, and some nice amenities in the rooms, the Uptown really is more of a hotel than motel and is full of pleasant surprises. Prices are reasonable, and... More

The Uptown Motel (UM) is located in a historic building in the center of Kenai, AK. However, the rooms have been updated and offer most modern conveniences. There are numerous antiques throughout the facility that make for interesting browsing without leaving the main building. The best restaurant in town, Louis, (according the all the locals I encountered) is adjacent to... More

Faced with a number of choices in Kenai and Soldotna, the Uptown may not seem like your first. I was greeted at the front desk by a friendly lady, who was very helpful. The room was tastefully decorated, with bathroom updates. Peaceful and quiet every night. I at at Louies Restaurant downstairs for one dinner, two lunches and three breakfasts.... More

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
