I arrived at The Cape Fox Lodge shortly after my husband arrived on business. The location is beautiful! The tram from Creek Street is free if you are a guest at the hotel, which I liked very much. Riding the tram you will get some beautiful pictures. Also this hotel is close to everything that you could possibly want to... More

Just stayed at Cape Fox in August 2013. Lovely place, everyone real friendly. I had a nice view of the port, some of the town of Ketchikan, and all the cruise ships. Ketchikan is a gem. The town reminded me of a old west town but with paved streets. A lot to see and do.

I recently stayed at the Cape Fox Lodge after finishing a fishing trip with my family. When we arrived, we called the lodge so that they could send the courtesy van. We were told that it would take 5 minutes... 20 minutes later, the van arrived. We arrived earlier than the check in time, so we had to wait. However,... More

Normally I don't write reviews unless I receive unbelievably exceptional service or I am exceptionally disappointed. Unfortunately this hotel falls in the latter category. Location and Dining were superb - I highly reccomend the Reindeer Mac & Cheese and the seafood chowder. Rooms are very dated and in need of a refurbish. Not nearly worth the $210.00 price tag. Unfortunately... More

August 15, 2013 We arrived ketchikan last week via cruise ship and wanted to experience Cape Fox Lodge restaurant. Beautiful setting, they were very accomodating with a table out of the sun. The meal was very good but we realized that our coleslaw wasen't brought out so I asked for it. I was told that it didn't come with coleslaw.... More

Thank you for writing a review of our restaurant. I am sorry that your experience was not all it should have been. Coleslaw does come with many of the entrees on the menu so I'm not sure what you ordered. Regardless we strive to make our guests happy, and the server was correct in giving you the coleslaw without question.... More

We spent two nights at the Cape Fox and highly recommend it. Views over the bay are spectacular, room was spacious and comfortable. Front desk was a little slow and somewhat inept, but pleasant. Our room was quiet and clean. We paid nothing extra for an ocean view but got it anyway; most rooms have views. Restaurant breakfast very good.... More

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room, with plenty of power outlets and good internet access. The cable car ride to town is a must do! Location is right next to tourist attractions. Restaurant menu selection and staff are excellent. I would gladly stay here again.

Had to have a place to stay overnight in Ketchikan and having stayed at this property previously I booked again. it is in a good location. The rooms are quite basic but the surrounding area makes up for all this. The only comment is that the restaurant takes last orders at 8.30pm. I arrived at 8.20pm, The restaurant Manager was...

Stayed here while in Ketchikan on business for three days. It's a great place with nice views, and serendipitously right beside the municipal conference facility where I was working. I paid the extra $9 for an ocean view room, and it was a nice view. While we were there, they were having staffing shortages and turnover, so the front desk... More

Had a recommendation for the Cape Fox Lodge and decided to spend the extra $$$ for a room overlooking the water. Ended up with an awesome corner room and loved the extra space. Food was really good despite the carpet in the dinning room being well past any chance of recovery. Interesting in that a co-located bar had smoking allowed,... More
