We stayed at the lodge as we were doing a grizzly bear tour. It was the perfect location right along the river which we could see from our room. If you enjoy your fishing this is the place to stay. They have everything at your finger tips. The shops were nice and close too. Room was comfortable. There were four... More

Thank you so much for your understanding in our needing to leave before We could complete our stay. So unfortunate. Our room was extremely clean and appointed with all we needed. Nice to have a large refrigerator in the room. We will be back! Beautiful view right out our window too! Thank you for your GREAT customer service.

I usually stay in Kenai when I am in town on business but because of a Fire Fighter's convention, I booked a room here. The only room available was a two bedroom suite with a full kitchen. It was nice having a view of the Kenai river, but it is also close to the highway so it was a bit... More

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
