This hotel is on a busy road. While it is barely within walking distance of the downtown area, it is not near any place to eat or other attractions. We opted for an upgrade to get the fireplace and the steam shower. Neither worked. But we did have to climb the stairs with our luggage to find that out. Instead... More

A group of 16 stated there. Pleasant staff. Rooms basic but clean and big enough for two to share. Neither in town or harbour but situated between and it's an easy walk either way (10 mins). Some rooms had a fridge, ours didn't. Vanity outside the bathroom made it easier for two of us to share.

We booked their four bedroom family suite. It's kind of a strange rambling area that appeared to have been the hotel office at one point. There are three doors to the outside, only one of which was locked when we arrived. The refrigerator contained food left over from prior guests which was a little disturbing. Finally there was no mention... More

We were looking for a reasonable and convenient place for our Kenai Fjords tour. This was just the right place. It is a bit of a walk to the harbor, but we had a car. Just perfect for us.The girls at the desk were helpful and directed us to restaurants and advice about the Northern lights.

I stay just for one night with my son (on our way to Homer) and the place is very comfortable and with a very nice breakfast; our waiter was very informative as well and it is a located in a beautiful setting

We stayed here 4 or so nights in July 2015. The hotel is very basic, which worked fine for us leaving for the day and just having a place to crash at night. The room was a little on the small size, but has all of the things that you need: bed, fridge, bathroom, place to put luggage, and a... More

This hotel is extremely basic. It is clean at least but other than that not great. The rooms are old and outdated, and not a very nice view from the rooms. Also Not in the middle of the town or the wharf. No breakfast offered. It is definitely low end.

So many things wrong with this property. The main problem was the price. Yes, it was high season so what do you expect? But no fridge or microwave, lukewarm shower, limited WiFi (mostly not working), saggy bed, and no view does not add up to $170 per night. As another reviewer has mentioned, the front desk closes at 8pm, so... More

Overall hotel experience here was very poor. Front desk closes at 8PM so no one was there for any services or assistance. Our phone was broken in our "Apartment" so we couldnt call anyone with any questions or for assistance. No one mentioned when we checked in that there would be no cleaning services in our room, so we didnt... More
