The location of this lodge can't be beat! Walking distance to food and shops with invigorating River views from the rooms, this was a great place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable, but a little loud- nothing that earplugs couldn't solve for a great night sleep. The room was dated, but adequate and would be perfect for summer... More

Had a fun time fishing the kenai behind this lodge. Our room had a great view of the river. Nice to have some exclusive access to fishing there. Was nice to be able to warm up in our room (was cold and rainy when we fished)

This place is really for fisherman as there are places for gear and even a place to go down to the river to fish. I picked it because it looked nice on the web and we didn't know much about the area. Room was large enough, clean and just across the river from the visitor center.

Loved this hotel! Best bed/sleep of my whole vacation. Fan in closet very convenient. Walk right out of room and down to river. Bar onsite to relax after day of fishing. Near several stores and restaurants. Soldotna is a beautiful town. I could have stayed there a couple more days.

Such a pleasant place to stop and spend the night. Located right on the river, which made it fun for my daughter to go wet a line. Staff was super nice and check in was a breeze. Later that evening we went to the lounge at the lodge and although they do not have dinner menus, they do have some... More

This place was awesome! Grills and a fire pit right on the river. All rooms have a river view. Super clean. We enjoyed our stay watching people fish while we grilled steaks and had s'mores over the fire. They have huge freezers to keep your catch too!

Our room in the lodge was clean and comfortable. It had a nice view of the river, which is beautiful. There are good restaurants nearby. It's a great location for fishing, which we did not have time for on our trip.

This motel is incredible! Clean rooms, great customer service. Right on the Kenai river. Your own private fishing shore. They have a new bar overlooking the river. You can't beat this place for a slightly upscale place to to stay in Soldatna. If you don't sleep here at least come see the bar and deck overlooking the Kenai River

Great place to stay. Large room nicely decorated. Large bathroom. Microwave. Cable tv. You over look the river. They have several areas to bbq and gather the family. Fishermen love this place. They have a bar with a patio for guest and locals. The price per night was very affordable. Helpful and pleasant hotel staff.

This place was just perfect for us. We fished from the backyard for salmon, cleaned them on a cleaning station provided and cooked them on propane grill in picnic-like setting. Bald eagles soared out our window. Very accessible to fishing guide tours also. Reasonable and very clean. Would love to come back anytime. Great bar too.
