Only got out one day for fishing, but caught halibut and salmon. The wildlife was incredible while on the water. Humpback & Orcas and so many bald eagles that they became like our cow birds at home ... all over the place. Still, there is a magic about being at Salmon Falls. Rooms are large, but outdated. Would have loved... More

Salmon Falls Resort is all about salmon fishing. Comfortable rooms, great views, food that is worth the trip, and a staff that likes their jobs. Guided fishing is done by the best in the area, quality boats and gear. One boat came back this week with 84 salmon onboard! Family friendly but little to keep kids busy if they are... More

An excellent place to fish, relax and dine. The resort provided transport to town to see The Fish Pirates Daughter, a melodrama worth the trip. Guides were outstanding, they put us on the Pacific salmon and big one eyed monsters Halibut. Big, Big. This will be our third trip and we have made reservations for 2016. Brenda and Pete Kopecky

This was my first fishing trip to Alaska and the Salmon Falls Resort was a great choice. The best views including an Eagle's nest with babies right outside our room. The fishing guide Micah was fabulous. We came back to the dock everyday with lots of fish. The service was outstanding. Provided transportation to and from the airport.

My wife and I recently visited Ketchikan for the purpose of having a family fishing vacation. We found the entire experience very worthwhile --- as this family-run resort caters to your individual needs and wants to meet your expectations. We were greeted by Tommy at the airport, and from that point till being dropped off on our last day, the... More

Just back from another fantastic trip to Salmon Falls Resort. Once again, above and beyond all expectations. Fishing- If you want to slam the fish, go with Mikey P. He's born and raised in Ketchikan and knows the waters like the back of his hand. He WILL put you on the fish......and he's funny as hell. The guys on the... More

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
