The staff was more than helpful. The Hotel was kept in fantastic condition. It was nothing but a positive experience. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans on visiting Kodiak Island. Thanks!

I visited Kodiak Island Resort with my 74 year old dad and we both said it was the ultimate fishing experience. Allen and April are gracious hosts and the lodge was super comfortable (especially the beds!) spacious and clean. Even though it was just a short walk to the dock, April gave my dad a ride down everyday, which I... More

Our family of 5 headed to Kodiak Island Resort in August 2014 looking for some fun and a little adventure. We didn't know exactly what to expect so we were very excited to arrive. Upon arrival we were very pleased with the beautiful lodge and a very welcoming crew. Allen, April, Joe, Jim, Brandon, Emily and chef Chuck. We wanted... More

I would not call this a hotel; I would call it a superb fishing destination and attraction! I never had a Bucket List, but as I aged I always thought about trips that would be very special when reminiscing in my old age rocker. A few years ago, I took the plunge and went to this lodge (owned by folks... More

Love the place, the people, and the fishing. I had 8 days of pure fun and relaxation. I have been to the lodge 3 different times now, the food is excellent, the owners are great people, the staff delightful. Being a small business owner, I respect the work and efforts put forth by the owners to manage the place. I... More

Where to start.....My sister, brothers, and father went as a large group of 8. One brother had a last minute medical emergency and could not make it. So there were only 7. Somehow they only planned for 6 people to fish. After some lively debate as to who was at fault for not having the proper fishing accommodations, arrangements were... More

Had a great "first visit" to Alaska with the Kodiak Island Resort lodge - hosted by Allen and April; with their son Joe as the ship's captain and a great first mate of Nick! Really enjoyed the entire experience--from the incredible food, beautiful accommodations and truly enjoyable and exciting fishing (Halibut, Rockfish, Seabass, Cod, etc.). As they say: Pictures are...

I had previously stayed with KIR two years ago and wrote a post about how fantastic my experience was with my boys. So it wasn't hard to pony up the money to come see Alan and his wife April again this year. Only this time in additon to my boys I brought my father in law who had always wanted... More

If there is truly a fisherman's heaven, it would be Kodiak Island Resort on Larsons Bay, Kodiak Island, Alaska. However, if you aren't interested in catching 100+ pound halibut, or, 40+ pound ling cod, or, 20+ pound yellow eye rockfish, or 5+ pound black sea bass, or, 10+ pound pacific cod, don't even think of going there. I took my... More

My husband and I booked this trip based on tripadvisor reviews as well as the resort website and phone conversations with Allen Washburn prior to booking. We arrived on Tuesday evening July 2 and left on Tuesday afternoon July 8. First off I want to say this...the lodge is very nice and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable which... More

Pam, We are always deeply concerned when our reputation for five-star service may not have met the expectations of a customer. I do wish you would have contacted me with your concerns, instead of simply posting a dissatisfied online review, but we still appreciate your willingness to express your feelings. We certainly apologize if any of our fishing assistance or... More
