“Dinky rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2007

staff got our reservation wrong, nice balcony but the view sucked...restaurant blocking the sea. tiny, dinky rooms. restaurant was overpriced and just average.

  • Liked — the balcony, fan and ironing board with iron in the room
  • Disliked — room was so tiny, even for 2 people.

What friendly people! We arrived 5 minutes before the restaurant was scheduled to close and the lady at the front desk called them and asked them to stay open because we had not yrt eaten. We walked the few steps to the restaurant and not only were they not upset that they had to stay open a little later, they made us take our time, served us delicious baked salmon and Key Lime pie. The front desk even warned us that it might be a little noisy at 6am the next morning (which it wasn't) because there were 24 people leaving on float planes. I wish we had spent 2 or 3 nights at The Narrows instead of only 1.

  • Liked — Friendliness
  • Disliked — Not a thing
  • Tips/Secrets — Turn left away from Ketchikan when you get off the ferry.

Our airline bumped us and put us up here. The staff was extremely helpful. Be aware most rooms have a double and a single, sleeping 3. We had 6, so they took 2 airline vouchers and let us have the family suite. very nice, runs 260 or so.

It has a trundle bed, a couch bed, a private bedroom, and a large bath. 2 tvs and views of the water. Very nice. Brian

I travel on business quite alot. The Narrows Inn and Restaraunt was a wonderfu place to stay. The rooms were well appointed though a bit small. The art work in them was appealing and tasteful. What really set it apart was the staff. They were courteous and very helpful. The food in the restaraunt was some of the best. The presentation was striking and the flavor divine. I ate there every day for eight weeks without one complaint. The views from the ocean-side rooms have a panorama of nature unrivaled. Truly this is worth checking out in Ketchikan AK. Cliff Berry

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Narrows Inn is the only year round hotel located on the water. We have panoramic views from our restaurant and lounge. We have an assortment of rooms ranging from our garden view, to ocean view, and three themed suites. Our shuttle bus is on demand for trips to town and the airport ferry. This is where "the bridge to nowhere" was supposed to be built, thus you must take a ferry from the island where the airplanes land to our island where the town is located. We will pick you up and take you to the hotel located 1 mile north of the airport ferry, making it extremely easy access coming to and from the airport. Our restaurant is known for its excellent food, especially the cedar planked salmon and halibut. ... more   less
