Unfortunately, we only stayed Pike’s Waterfront Lodge for only one night. I wish we could have stayed more than that! I have to say upfront that I am smitten. It was the end of August, the end of our cruise tour, and we were even one of the last tours of the season. At first blush, a new looking exterior... More

We stayed here two nights as part of land package prior to our cruise. Cozy lobby with fireplace. Small room but comfortable. After touring all day, shower very relaxing. Buffet breakfast (not free) was adequate.

We started our Alaska trip here before heading to Denali and found this place to be very nice. We stayed on the 3rd floor with a direct view of the Chena river. The room was very nice, good sized, had a fireplace and a standing balcony (no room for chairs) to see the river. The bed was very comfortable as... More

The night we stayed there had pouring rain. There were not much we could do about it. But the view from our room was beautiful. It overlooked a pretty lake. Not far from our window were two loveseat swings and flowers. We went to the store to look around. Ms. Kay was most friendly and helpful. She gave us small... More

Make sure you reserve a room on the river! When we checked in we were first given a room on the parking lot knowing that we had reserved a room on the river. I went back to the front desk and was given our correct room. Our room included two beds and was spacious and clean with a refrigerator and... More

We were at Pike's for first part of our land tour of Alaska with Celebrity. It looked so nice from the picture, when we got there noticed dirty rugs, rooms were a good size but tired and dirty looking. It is not a place I feel that Celebrity would use. The dining room was not clean. The window sills were... More

My husband and i stayed here a couple of nights and were pleasantly surprised. We were fortunate enough to have a river front room which gave us nice views. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The bathroom was a little dated, but more than adequate and very clean. The only thing I found somewhat of a problem was the... More

I booked 4 nights at this hotel because it was on the river and it was rated pretty well on Trip Advisor. I asked for a view of the river. When we checked in my husband said, Why did you pick this place? It looks pretty tired. Our room was small, not clean, furniture very worn and tired. Didn't feel... More

The hotel is on the river and near the airport. staff is competent, continental breakfast was just okay. The bed was comfortable but the facility itself appears to be somewhat dark, drab and dated. A slight odor permeated throughout that wasn't necessarily offensive but there. The lobby and hallways were overheated. There is a restaurant next door but otherwise you... More
