I live on island so we did not stay at the lodge itself, but went to the restaurant that is supposed to be one of the best on island. If you want something 'special' with great food and all that, Salmon Falls was supposed to be the place to go. I was taken there to celebrate the completion of my... More

While I'm sure the hotel portion of this resort (not aptly named) is almost okay, the restaurant is not worth the trip. While the wait staff is pleasant - one might say cute - the service is slow and sloppy, the menu is limited and the cooking is atrocious. We were taken to dinner by friends so I didn't want... More

We had a wonderful time traveling here with friends. We went out fishing everyday for about 8 hours with their private fishing guides. The fishing was great and we also enjoyed some crabbing too. The views were spectacular. If you want to see Eagles this is the place to go. I saw hundreds daily at the resort. I also saw... More

Nice resort, beautiful views. Relatively clean, most of the hotel staff were very friendly. The food I think was ok, expectation was high based on other posters reviews but was somewhat disappointed. Not really all inclusive, have to read fine print - appetizers are not included in dinner. Also, I believe it was the same menu every night that we... More

Salmon Falls Resort is the best place to stay when in Ketchikan. You’re away from downtown and all the tourist trappings, especially the cruise ships and gift shops. Not that those things are bad, but I prefer to feel like I’m in the ‘last frontier’ and closer to nature. The resort itself is almost at the end of the road... More

I had went to this resort first in 2009 with some friends and had the time of my life. The people running the resort bent over backward to make sure everything was top notch. I decided to make the trip again in July 2012 and it was completely different. Some of the same boat captains were there, but the attitude... More

This restaurant had been highly recommended by a local, so I expect the food is good, and I also expect the service must sometimes be better. However, our experience was poor. Four of us were there on a Tuesday night in mid July. We were seated fairly quickly, and then apparently forgotten. After about 15 minutes we asked for menus... More

Salmon Falls Lodge, located on the inside passage in Ketchikan, Alaska, is a beautiful, incredible, insanely majestic place to vacation. Specializing in guided Salmon and Halibut fishing, they also offer freshwater options. And, you don’t have to be a fisherman to stay here and have a fabulous time! The fishing grounds are close, the wildlife is spectacular, and the scenery... More

I had to cancel my trip because the owner quoted me a price and then sent me a bill for $1000 more than she said it would be over the phone. When I called to correct the bill, I had assumed the price was so much more because the bill was showing for full-guided when I had chosen self-guided. She... More

Lodge and Restaurant sit on one of the most impressive and scenic locations I have visited. Eagles soar at eye level as you dine. Your view overlooks an ocean inlet and a magnificent waterfall. We have been a dozen times and the fishing has been excellent. Last year my family (4 of us) brought 420 lbs of salmon and halibut... More
