Our family in three rooms had a lovely stay for this 4th of July. With an outside campfire, swing and table set up, the kids had a lot of fun outside. They rented a fishing pole for a little fishing, though know that you do need a license - agents check regularly. Near a busy street, but this did not... More

We were disappointed this place was so close to the highway. Place is clean and dated. Check-in staff was very nice. View for us was of the river and highway bridge. Visitor center conveniently located across the river and easy walk across the bridge.

We stayed one night and found the room very clean and comfortable. All rooms seem to have a nice view of the river, so perhaps requesting one further from the road would be helpful in summer as you're likely to want to sleep with the window open. I think it had free wi-fi, and it had lots of parking. It's... More

We stayed in room, which is at the end closest to the road. The traffic is very apparent, but did not keep me awake at night. I loved the view of the river, and some of the outside accommodations, like the grills and fire pit. Sadly, the things that were objectionable were the black mold that covered the inside of... More

Had a great time for 4 days here. Sadly I timed the salmon wrong. The early run is in the upper Kenai. The late run is in July. I was there in mid June. The lodge was nice with great fishing access. There was a nice tv but never turned it on, always doing something. The only shocker was that... More

My family of four shared 2 double beds and we really enjoyed our stay. Staff was great. The construction was not a problem as we were up by 8am anyways. That said, dont stay here if you like to sleep in! So much to do! Fishing walking and just lounging by the river are all great at this hotels private... More

My husband and I stayed here three nights, and we thought it was a very nice stay. The bed was comfortable, and had plenty of pillows which can be hard to come by. It also had a microwave, coffee pot- which they always restocked the coffee when they cleaned, and a refrigerator with a small freezer! It was great because... More

Fantastic location by the Kenai river, with a great lawn & dock for hotel guests. Hotel staff were super friendly, even going the extra mile to give me a ride to a local business. The rooms are a little dated, but functional. The location is close to the bridge & the road is very busy this time of year, so... More

Great place and great owners. Wonderful piece of property with a great view and good fishing that is walking distance to food/shops. I can't recommend this place enough to my clients for it convenient location, good fishing, and great waterfront property

My room was clean, ample sized and had a coffee pot, refrigerator and microwave. It was nicely furnished. All rooms overlook the Kenai River and it is walking distance of restaurants. It was a great summer time price. I will definitely stay again
