Stayed one night at the Cape Fox Lodge before a Uni Cruise trip. The room was comfortable with a wonderful view over Ketchikan. The hotel is done a disservice by it's staff and food. Our check in was appalling - we were at the front of a group of 50+ arriving at the same time; surely the hotel was expecting... More

We were booked in here for a couple of nights with part of our Un-Cruise tour who use it as their Gateway Hotel.Bed rooms were comfortable with super views and access to the Deer Mountain Trail is very close by. Reception Staff were very variable but one lady in particular was very friendly and most helpful. We did have an... More

The Cape Fox Lodge is the very nicest property in Ketchikan and the great deal is that it is located downtown. Some of the other properties are a few miles out of town and with summer traffic that is at least a 20+ minute drive. I always get a kick out of reading other reviews and when someone states a...

We were not hotel guests but our group of 6 were strolling the streets and my parents decided to get tickets to ride up in the tram. My husband and I were not ready to go up so we stayed behind. When we were ready an hour later we approached the lady at the bottom of the tram. She didn't... More

It seemed like a good idea to book the family suite, instead of two rooms. My elderly father came up with my sister to move me. We could have booked two rooms, but opted on the suite so that we could visit. The living room area is huge, with a couch and two chairs. The view of the harbor was... More

We arrived at Cape Fox Lodge at 9.00 in the morning on completion of an Un-cruise adventure cruise. We were able to get an early check-in which we really appreciated. Our room was huge with fabulous views over Ketchikan and the waterfront marred only by the oversized cruise ships which dwarf Ketchikan. We ate both lunch and dinner and both... More

Amazing hotel half way up the mountainside but don't worry they have a courtesy bus and also free cable car to get you down into town and back again! Fantastic views over the city from room and restaurant...fab food too! Salmon added to Caesar salad was sublime and filling and only about 11 dollars and big glass of iced water... More

When our group arrived, only one young staff member was available to check us in; it seemed to take forever. No bell hops were on duty so we had to lug our bags a considerable distance, then up two flights of stairs to our room on the upper level. The room was well equipped, but the decor is now rather...

There is so much we absolutely loved about this place but there were quite a few disappointments as well. Our experience started with a 50 minute wait time for a shuttle pick-up from the airport ferry terminal, which is about a five to eight minute ride from the lodge. That said, fast forward to our last day: we missed the... More

Maybe it's just Ketchikan, I don't know, but this "classy hotel" is not much better than an average Best Western. I'm not sure why people are so impressed unless they usually stay at a Super 8, Nothing was horrible, but nothing was amazing either. The room had a funny odor and was Spartan in its decor. If every place else... More
