Not knowing what to expect when we booked this lodge online, we were pleasantly surprised. The location was very convenient to restaurants and the highway ran right past it. The view of the river and fishermen catching salmon was a bonus. Room was large and comfortable, as was the bed. Clean too.

All rooms have river view. They also had fishing poles and bait available and a walkway down by the river. Rooms were good. At night they had a fire pit which we enjoyed sitting around. They also had gas grills if you wanted to cook but it was sprinkling a bit so we didn't do that. We were able to... More

I showed up at 11 AM- check in is at 3- the young woman at the desk said my room was ready and I could check in early-it was pouring rain and cold so that was great-she took time to show me around the place as well. Also gave me tips on dining and sightseeing options. Room was basic but... More

Room was hot even though we turned the thermostat down. We had to sleep with the window open on the 12th of September. We could hear the local traffic as well as the guests above us who sounded like several children & moving furniture until well after midnight. The toilet hadn't seen a brush for at least the last few... More

The location of this hotel is great for fisherman! My favorite fishing hole in the area is about a mile away, but there is also fishing in the back of the hotel. This was great for my husband and son who were not ready to stop but I was seeking a comfortable bed and a warm shower. The outdoor area... More

We stayed at the Kenai River Lodge for one night with 4 adults and 1 baby. Our room had 2 queen beds, and was a little cramped but otherwise fine. The room had clearly been recently updated and included a mini fridge and microwave, which was very nice. We chose the hotel because of it's proximity to the Kenai River.... More

I normally don't like staying at places with doors that open directly to the outside due to security concerns, but I didn't see that info on Booking. Besides, it's Soldotna, not NYC. The location is great, right next to the river, but you're also right next to the main road and bridge, so you hear the traffic. You also hear... More

I stayed here one night and the room was okay. VERY spacious and a great view, but the rooms are older, and the shower/tub was not that great. No breakfast, no room service, they did have a fridge in the room. Staff was friendly, no elevator that I could find, so carrying my bags upstairs during rain was a blast.... More

I've stayed here a few times on the drive between Anchorage and Homer. The rooms are comfortable, large enough for all of our gear, and it has been quiet every time we've stayed. The view is beautiful and there are a variety of dining options nearby.

We stayed here for one night. We are not fishermen but we enjoyed being on the water & watching others fish. We had a nice view of the river from our room. This is an older hotel but it was clean & well maintained. There is no AC but they do provide a fan. With the window open & the... More
