The lodge was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were excellent, the staff friendly and the restaurant was one of the best I have ever had the pleasure to eat at. The menu was fantastic and the presentation was excellent. We stayed at the Lodge as part of a fishing charter package. I am anxious to return, if only... More

Great view, comfortable rooms excellent service and perfect location. How could you go wrong. Make sure and ride the tram. The hotels sits on the hill just above downtown Ketchikan so the view of the bay and town below are amazing.

Dear BMP68 Thank you for your very kind review, our advertising brochure could not have put it any better; and to top it off our ownership is in the middle of planning an incredible upgrade to our already amazing lodge. Thank you once again for your heart felt review. JWM-GM-CFLKA More

Stay here annually for a fishing trip. Rooms are comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant is very good; nice place to eat when you are tired from your day activities. Again, staff very friendly.

Pew were on our way to a fighting lodge on Prince of Wales Island, but due to foggy rainy weather, our floatplane was grounded. The hotel offered accomodations at a discounted rate to those of us stuck in Ketchikan for the night. The rooms were standard comfortable rooms with nice beds and nice towels. The trek to the room was... More

Dear Jrcdsharp I see you were able to experience Ketchikan’s famous ever changing, never predictable weather. I am glad we were able to accommodate you and get you a room at the last minute. You are right our restaurant does not open until 6:30 AM. However, Numshee Jitters our Espresso Bar opens early AM and has fresh Muffins, Croissants, Cinnamon... More

I can't rate the rooms since I didn't stay here but let me share my overall experience and impression. I was wandering Ketchikan, Creek Street specifically, and found the tram. I decided to pay the $2 for the all day ticket and rode to the top. I was surprised to find the Lodge since I was not expecting much beyond... More

Our family took up 4 rooms and stayed 4 nights. We loved the food and staff at the restaurant, the lounge areas, and coffee shop right in the lobby. It was great to have the trolley take us down to the Creek Street shops and the hotel shuttle available for trips through town.

Dear Cheryl B. Thank you for your kind words and appraisal of our Hotel and staff. Being located “On Top of it All” right above downtown is a convenience for our guests and as you noted, the complimentary one-of-a-kind Funicular provides easy access. We are glad we were able to help make your Alaskan vacation a little more memorable. JWM-GM More

We stayed here one night during our stay in Ketchikan and have good service. We have a little issue when we wanted to check in early but it eventually worked out. Rooms were good, elevator slow, food was good. Nice lobby except when cruise ships are in town gets really crowded.

Dear Mr. Psari Thank you for your review, I agree it does get crowded when our small town grows by 10,000 people in less than 2 hours, but that does tend to happen in any tourist destination worth visiting, like Ketchikan and of course the Cape Fox Lodge. I commiserate with your wanting to check in early but as our... More

My wife and I were having dinner in the lounge at Cape Fox Lodge. We were seated and ready to have a great meal prior to leaving Ketchikan the next day. Although the lounge was nearly empty, we had been waiting several minutes before we were greeted by our waiter, or had any water delivered to our table. Luckily, a... More

Spent one night here after a 7 day fishing charter. The king bed was a welcome sight after the bunk I'd been sleeping in. The hotel is old and a little rough around the edges. Maintenance needs to do a better job around the common areas. The floors in the halls are terrible. The bed was fine but the rest... More

Dear Gage S. Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. A Lodge of our size with 4 separate out-buildings as you noted takes a lot of maintenance and I admit sometimes we miss things. I appreciate you letting us know about the heater so we were able to get it fixed right away. The counter space is an... More
