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

We actually really enjoyed our stay here. It was close to where we were fishing, and the staff was really friendly and accomodating. There isn't much to do in town...other than the river walk, and museum. The river is very pretty, we sat on the swing at the lodge with a couple of brews and watched the sunset. We were... More

Very clean and the view is special. What fun to watch fishermen catch salmon right outside your window. There is no air conditioning which would not be a problem most years. The mattress on our bed was lumpy and extremely uncomfortable. Don't plan on turning around in the bathroom and count on soap and shampoo but nothing else. No breakfast.

My son, who lives in Alaska, and I were on a fun trip around Alaska, with Kenai River Lodge as our salmon fishing headquarters. Our day of arrival in Soldotna began in Denali National Park, ran through Anchorage where we dropped off our RV and picked up fishing gear. By the time we had stopped to fish the Russian /... More

I have stayed here in the winter before and it was always great. It is even better in the summer. Fishing is right out the front door on the Kenai River and it is very conveniently located close to stores and places to eat. The rooms have apparently recently been remodeled and are clean and nicely decorated and equipped. The... More
