Located on the banks of the Chena River, it is a very Alaskan hotel with great staff and rooms. Loved the black out curtains - Really helps you sleep when the sun is till out at midnight. Lovely decks and sitting areas that you can sit and relax and enjoy the River. Very convenient to have Pike's Landing Restaurant right... More

The rooms haven't been updated since probably the 80's, and they really need black out curtains. Besides that, it was a nice little hotel to stay with a nice deck off the back, small fire pit where you could build your own fire, and even a little putting green. It's right next to Pike's Landing too, which was nice when... More

The location of this place in on the banks of the Chena River and it make for wonderful viewing of an Alaska experience. The rooms are VERY nice, along with a balcony overlooking the river. The lobby is very Alaskan with beautiful artwork paintings and several taxidermy animals representing Alaska. ALL of the staff were most helpful and simply wonderful... More

We stayed here as a starting point of the land portion of our Alaskan cruise. It was nice, clean and met all the basic requirements but not outstanding. We stayed in the Copper Lodge and did not have wifi however the other lodge did. Our view overlooked the parking lot, if you can get a back room in the other... More

I made a reservation in April. I had to cancel my travel plans so I called PWL and cancelled in excess of 24 hours, per their policy. They gave me a cancellation number. My credit card statement showed up and they had charged me a one-night cancellation fee. I called and they blamed a reservation company they use down south... More

The hotel was nice, and very comfortable. I was in a wheelchair and the handicapped room was comfortable. We were there on the Summer Solstice so it was light all night, but they do provide black-out drapes so we were able to sleep. The views of the river were lovely and it was a fun place to visit. We were... More

The rooms were wonderful! Beautifully decorated and the bed was great! They are on the river so the views were outstanding! They have beautiful cabins also and they have a couple of places for outdoor activities, Bocci Ball, Mini golf, nice areas to view the river.

It took us over an hour to check in. According to the reception, they did not have our reservations which were made two months in advance through Booking.com and we had the confirmation print. After a long wait and various phone calls between hotel and bookings.com, they could find us the rooms. Rooms had no view, we were looking at... More

From the time we were picked up at the airport until check out the staff was great. This was our first stop (on our own) of our vacation until we met up with our Princess tour. The room faced the river and had a great view. Room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast both mornings, very good... More
