This is a clean and comfortable hotel with good views of Ketchikan Old Town and two of the cruise ship berths. The funicular from the hotel provides easy access to Creek Street and the downtown area. The hotel is next to the civic center so it is a good location for meetings and conferences.

Things can't really get any better than this! This hotel excels in all things: customer service, cleanliness, up to date fixtures, access to restaurant, espresso in the a.m., you name it! It has a world class view (on the "water" side) of Revillagigedo Channel and even boasts a trolley that will bring you up to the hotel lobby from the... More

Dear Strideforth Thank you very much for the insightful review and the thoughtful suggestions. I appreciate and concur with all of them.

The ocean view room has spectacular views and using the tram to get down the hill was great (when it is working). Don't expect anyone to be helpful in any way. The shuttle will pick you up from the ferry, but that is it. Every time we asked to go anywhere else, they were too busy. Our room hasn't been... More

Dear Anm1234 Thank you for recognizing what a unique location the Cape Fox Lodge is. I must agree with you we do have spectacular views. You forgot to mention the Shuttle is free.

This place is beautiful and nicely decorated. The scenery can't be beat but at all times of the day it sounds like there are a heard of Elephants walking around everywhere. The doors slam very loudly... but I was happy with the cleanliness of the hotel. But they should put some shelving in the bathroom or something. No counterspace to... More

Dear PHtraveler2015 Thank you for your kind review and suggestion about adding shelving in the bathrooms. We often look to our guests to assist us in making our property better. I must admit it was quite a culture shock when I moved here; getting used to the insane delays in shipping for major equipment and supplies. Thankfully, 23 days and... More

We enjoyed the staff, restaurant, cleanliness and especially the location (on top of the hill) of this hotel. The cable car ride down the mt. side to Creek Street was easy, fast and put you right into town!
