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.

We stayed here for a wedding back in August 2014. What a great place with great views of the Kenai River. We came back to our room to see a Bald Eagle soaring down river from our window. The service and staff were wonderful, very helpful and courteous. The area is just spectacular to be in. Can't wait to get... More

Loved this place. The lounge was awesome! Beautiful view, cozy room and the girl in the office was not only nice and helpful all through out the evening, but hot too! Can't wait to come back next summer!

We arrived to find that we had great fishing is right outside the hotel! We couldn't wait to get started! The rooms were clean and we had a refrigerator and microwave. Clean towels each morning was very nice. We grilled our first catch and the front desk had extra condiments for grilling our sockeye salmon. They lodge is very accommodating... More

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
