Quaint and cozy place. Comfortable, reasonably priced, close to everything. Has shared bathroom, but there are about 4 so no problems with que. It was like stepping back in time a little which is nice with a society so big box and dull! Highly recommend , but book early

Loved the warmth and coziness of this local establishment! The room was quaint with a super comfy bed/pillows, and the staff could not have been friendlier. Add to this the delicious and abundant breakfast (I highly recommend the blueberry pancakes - the 1/2 order will suffice for most appetites!), and it was just what I was looking for. Note: floorboards... More

This review was accidentally previously published under the restaurant heading. The Museum Apartment is located above the Talkeetna Museum, a wooden structure heated by an oil furnace. The only access to or egress from the apartment is a narrow wooden staircase. There is no fire exit and no smoke detectors. The only staircase lands immediately next to the oil tank.... More

Near everything this was a great place to stay. We loved the atmosphere and the authentic Alaskan experience. Rooms are good value but with shared, clean, bathrooms. The food was the best part ... fantastic; the service in the restaurant was excellent with good quality food. Homemade bakery deserts are huge and suitable for all travels. Eat the awesome homemade... More

Expect to be charmed by small details. A friend, pooch, and I stayed 2 nights at Trapper John's Cabin. I've stayed at the Roadhouse at least 3 prior times. Trisha is friendly and available. Trapper John's has a fully functional kitchen. Dog bowls and treats were provided! The beds are super comfy with lots of covers in case the gas... More

My husband and I were late as usual in booking a room for the weekend of the Talkeetna 100K Rando Ride, and found that the Roadhouse had one spot open: the apartment over the Museum/Old Schoolhouse. It turned out to not be that much spender than a less private room, and such a sweet splurge at $130.00. The apartment is... More

We are a group of 5 and booked this cabin for 2 days and a night. Loved the cabin from the moment we stepped in. It was very well decorated and had the old style video cassettes. This place has that local charm to it.

I would highly recommend the Roadhouse for a classic stay en route to Denali. It has plenty of charm and interesting history. The atmosphere is very cozy, with guests frequenting the lobby area and seated at the dining room tables pretty much all day. Breakfast was hearty and delicious and the rooms were cozy and well kept-up. Only caution is... More

After 2 years of living in and exploring Alaska's spectacular landscape, I once again returned to the Roadhouse in Talkeetna.... one of my most favorite places!!! I have stayed here many times, both Summer & Winter. Summer is always full of fun and excitement at the Roadhouse, with mountain climbers gathering from all over the world to experience 'Denali'.... you'll... More

This roadhouse is quirky, friendly, and comfortable. I've stayed in four different rooms over the years and have always loved it. The beds are super comfy. I know where I am when I wake up. This is Talkeetna! I've never had a problem sharing the bathrooms. There has alway been one available. While my travel companions sleep, I can read... More
