Howard and Darlene are the owners of this very nice, extremely clean lodging. Right on the east bank of the Susitna River, this establishment is one of the most pleasant places I've stayed. The lodge suite that I stayed in was very nice with an upstairs sleeping loft that has two beds. Bathroom was very clean as was the the... More

This is the place to be if you are looking for a locally owned hotel in Talkeetna, Alaska. The entire town itself is very local, and this is right outside of town. You're right on the river, with a great view of Mt. McKinley. The owner is very friendly and polite. I would definitely recommend bringing a pair of binoculars,... More

If you are travelling as a couple or as a family, this is an exceptional lodge to stay. Bring your own food or eat at nearby Talkeetna. The lodge is comfy and rustic. We stayed in rooms in the lodge rather than an individual cabin. We had side-by-side rooms which worked out well since we were three adults and two... More

U have all the amenities u need with a great view of the river. The lodge is a short walk from town and if u need Darleen, the owner, so only... More

We were pleasantly surprised, or should I say impressed. The service was great. The cabins are very, very clean and comfortable. I can't say enough good things about our stay. You definitely can't go wrong if you choose to stay here.

Susitna River Lodging is located just when you arrive into the town of Talkeetna. It's a quick 5 minute drive to the center of town from the lodge. We were initially a little weirded out about the green carpet in the pictures (strange, I know), but our room was immaculate, comfortable, very large. We even had a separate thermostat to... More

Susitna River Lodging, just a mile before the delightful old town of Talkeetna this lodge is very fine. The rooms are large, well appointed with lounges looking out over the excellent view of the river and birch trees, a good desk, a kitchen, large bathroom and attic bunk area for the kids. The staff were great - welcoming and informative,... More

Spent our 30th Anniversary night here in mid-June 2014. Beautiful, well appointed, and roomy accommodations with a great view of the river. The staff was very pleasant. In all of the places that we stayed as we toured Alaska, this was probably the best.

All cabins and lodge suites have a kitchenette, full private bathroom and scenic view. Four cabins and four suites are open year round and staffed by friendly and knowledgeable local Talkeetna, Alaska. It located beside Susitna River, Alaska. Although the lodge stands along Talkeetna Spur Road, the lodge is very quiet and possible to spend the time to rest the... More

Four co-workers and I shared a cabin while in Talkeetna for the Bachelor Auction. Staff was very accommodating and friendly, Cabin comfortable with plenty of room for socializing and everyone slept comfortably. Bedding and pillows nicer than I expected in a "cabin". Kitchen is tiny but has large toaster oven, microwave, crock pot, toaster, coffee maker. All dishes we needed... More
