Rooms are large and rustic. Bar is a blast! Food in the restaurant is amazing! Molly is the owner and one of a kind! Hobo Jim is a legend and his show is a MUST see and he is there all the time! Summer time in Alaska is hectic and crazy. I personally had no issues but some others I... More

I have stayed at Hooligans many times over the years and always find it to be very clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and accommodating and the food in the restaurant is fantastic. I wont stay anywhere else on the peninsula.

Understand it's a fishing area and fishermen don't need a lot of luxury. The back side of the motels is tough looking so be ready for that. The room was pretty big but the furniture was rough and the floor was a little sandy and dirty, but what do ya expect fishermen drag in there anyhow. They had wi-fi and... More

Had a wonderful time until we returned home and discovered we were charged and extra big tip on top of the tip we already left. Called Molly multiple time and faxed her the receipts. No response. Pay CASH only!

I first made a reservation through Orbitz, then called the hotel to book a second room, and was assured that the rate would be the same. After a week, I found out that my credit card was charged at a rate 50 % higher than the one I expected. The manager refused to respect the initial rate, saying that it... More

The rooms were clean ,spacious and really cozy. The log furniture they had made it feel very alaskan. They offered free wifi, breakfast and the... More

They put us on the back side of the place, the part you don't see from the highway or the website (see attached photo). Pretty rough back there - gravel with potholes, generally littered outside with cigarette butts everywhere. The very drunk maintenance guy (legal disclaimer - just a guess or opinion on my part) passed out in the tool... More

I think the biggest problem with this place is that they are calling themselves a lodge (as many similar units in the area do), when, in fact, they are a motel. The room we had for 4 nights was very decent. 2 queen beds, table and chairs, frig and microwave. Very neat and clean. Room was made up daily even... More
