The Swiss Alaska Inn was inexpensive for the area and average in accommodations. It was away from the noise of the small downtown area and very quiet. Everything in Alaska is expensive so if you are looking for a place to lay you head that is clean I would recommend. But plush it is not.

We arrived and went to check in, we were early so we didn't mind our room not being ready so we went for lunch as we were told to come back in 30 min. We were told we would be staying in the main building....but I had thought we reserved a cabin, but we were only staying one night so... More

We were booked in this hotel by the tour operator. As per our voucher, a service van will be waiting for us on our arrival at the train depot. No van so we called the hotel to pick us up as we have no idea where it is though it's near the train depot. 15 mins later still no sign... More

This is definitely one of the strangest places I've ever stayed. On arrival we walked through the main building/restaurant/reception/office/bar to check in at a little desk at the back. The woman was moderately friendly but it was quickly noted that it was a husband and wife running all operations of the property. You could see into the kitchen from the... More

All we really did was sleep and a quick bkfst before Denali but no complaints. Price was right, it was quiet and a short walk into town. Bkfst was expensive but try the oatmeal - fabulous. Cook/waitress were great. Bottom line-great for stopover; besides, who's going to spend much time in their room with all that's outdoors??

This is the third time that I stayed in this charming hotel in Talkeetna, a small and pretty town. The owners of Swiss-Alaska are very nice people and treat you as family. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The price is fair and, comparing to other hotels in town, this is the best cost-benefit. It is located... More

We ate breakfast here after it was recommended by a local. We waited 45 minutes for our food to come ( 2 omelettes). There was only 2 people working here - the cook and the waitress, and it was the waitresses first day! I have no complaints about the food, once we finally got it. The omelettes were stuffed with...
