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

I loved this place. The food was excellent and the attention to detail was superb. I recommend the catering very highly as well as the service if you are hosting a meeting or just need a weekend getaway. I will be back!

Checking in was the beginning of the hassle, it was an hour long process as our "confirmed reservation" didn't matter, because they didn't have a room available. It continued going downhill from there. No Courtesy van, the new front desk manager was unpleasant about everything. She spoke to other employees about our frustration and from then on we got horrible... More

Thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. I have looked into this and I am sorry a room was not available for check in when you arrived that morning however, I am glad we were able to get you checked into a room a couple hours prior to our 3:00 check in time. More

We had done a fair bit of searching with Tripadvisor to select Cape Fox Lodge for our two-night stay and from what we saw of the main alternatives, we made the right choice. This is a comfortable, pleasantly casual, timber-built hotel perched above central Ketchikan with a good view across the harbour and parts of the town. You can take... More

I asked for a mountain view, and I have to say, the fog between the fir trees was beautiful. My room was cozy, not too small and nice. The night stand had residue on it (?) and so I put a towel over it, instead of calling housekeeping. It was the bath I had issue with. The bathroom was small... More

Cape Fox Lodge is beautiful for sure and I am hoping that what we experienced was just a bad day for them. We stayed at cape fox one night after finishing an Un-Cruise (which was wonderful). Cape Fox handled our transfer well; however, when we got to the room it had dirty washcloths hanging in the bathroom and used towels... More

Thank you for writing a review, your comments help us improve. Yes, summer is a hetic time at the Lodge, but that is no excuse for what you experienced. It is our policy to check the rooms before a guest checks in so this should not have been missed and I am sorry this happened to you. I am glad... More

I've been staying at this hotel for years, and the service is great, the staff very helpful and accommodating. The courtesy van driver very willing to pick me up and take me wherever and whenever I need to go in town. The view from all of the rooms are great, whether it is of the mountain or the water front.... More

I must admit we didn't stay at the lodge but we did take the gondola up from the lower streets to the lodge (only a couple of bucks to do so). We enjoyed the small display of items from Alaska, I guess you could say a 'mini-museum' and the totem poles on their property as well. If we were staying... More

While in Ketchican, we took the short trip up by gondola to this lodge. From the gondola we got a really good view of Ketchican & our cruise ship, HAL Statendam, at the dock On the grounds is the excellent Totem Circle called the "Council of the Clans" carved by Lee Wallace.

The Cape Fox continues to be a special place and a wonderful gateway to Alaska. It has a warm feel to it, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, outstanding views and the best ride in town to take you up the hill, for free when you are a guest (on the funicular). If you don't know what a funicular is, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funicular.... More
