Sadly I only had one night here in late July and it was everything I was expecting! The atmosphere had great, such friendly staff, amazing food, comfy bed and clean bathrooms. If you aren't into sharing, this probably isn't your kinda place, but for a solo traveller like myself it was great. Family style seating so you got to meet... More

My wife and I wanted to experience Alaska without staying in a regular hotel-this was one great answer. Funky little two bed cabin within walking distance of restaurants and shops on main. Kinda quiet back there. Talkeetna is a bit busy, but not in a bad way. You can kill a bit of time walking down to the river and... More

We stayed in the Little Room in the Back for two nights and it was a Goldilocks experience with everything just right. The loft above was perfect for our son and his girlfriend. The folks at the roadhouse were friendly and helpful and willing to reccomend places around town and help with planning outings. The food is to die for... More

We stayed here mid-way through our Alaska trip. It was a rainy day and after driving from Kantishna we were beat. We were very happy to see that we could do laundry! It was a highlight!!! I was not too crazy about shared bathrooms but they were very clean and accessible and we had no problem with them. Our room... More

My wife likes to be spontaneous and I like to plan, so we have a deal that I plan and reserve, and then do not tell her until we check in. I wanted to find something different and memorable, rather than "another motel." We found that not at the Roadhouse, but rather in the apartment over the schoolhouse museum. We... More

We spent one night at the roadhouse and really enjoyed our visit. Our room was small, with a tiny sink in one corner and the bathroom down the hall, but it was clean and comfortable and a great value. There are tables and chairs in various spots to sit in the public areas and free coffee and tea for guests.... More

Very reasonable lunch here with salad and delicous pasties and their pics are amazing and on a clear day you can see Mt McKinley worth stopping on the way to denali. You must take a spur road but it is only a little out of the way from the main road

The Trapper Johns cabin was perfect for my husband and I who stayed two nights. It was a good walk 1/4 miles from the rest of the roadhouse which gave us separation from the traffic and noise of the town. We loved watching the infrequent landing of odd small planes on the landing strip across the road (basically a field.)... More

This hotel is very family oriented, and it was a fun experience. I don't usually stay in places like this (shared bathrooms, etc.), but it was good place to stay. It feels like your staying in a part of history. The restaurant has good food, and the staff is very nice. I didn't sleep very comfortably but overall it was... More

We are staying in the Talkeetna Roadhouse now. Although it is dated, it is dated in a neat way. I am staying in Trapper John's Cabin which is about a quarter mile from the Roadhouse. Reminds me of my Grandmothers house. The Roadhouse itself has a family style breakfast every morning. Great food. The whole experience is a step back... More
