Nice hotel. Be sure to get water view room. Cable car not operational during our visit but enjoyed the hike up and down the creek trail to get into old town. Some confusion at front desk with shuttles and storage. Didn't seem to have great communication between staff members. Some visitors were taken over to airport by shuttle on ferry.... More

One of the highlights of my Alaskan journey is Cape Fox, love the hydraulic cable bringing u to the topmost part of the hotel. Everything seems surreal! Love the history of the place and the people too!

The Cape Fox Lodge has a beautiful location overlooking the harbor at Ketchikan and the hills of Gravina Island beyond. In fine weather the views are superb. It is a short steep walk down to the busy town but we understand that the tramway is now working again. The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed with large and comfortable beds.... More

Spent two nights at the Cape Fox before our departure to our fishing lodge that we visit every year. Same as last year, except they had our reservation this time, however, they weren't sure if I paid both nights or the fishing lodge paid for one night. The vernicular wasn't running and the shuttles were very busy. This is a... More

I spent $250 (Five Star Price) for a Two Star Room. The hotel room was okay at best. But the bathroom tub didn't drain very well and hairs were frequently found. The tram to get up the cardiac hill to the lodge from the town center was broken down and has been down for two years, I was told. The... More

Matt D Thank you for the review of our lodge. Our tram has been out of service for about 6 months and was originally custom designed in Russia 30 years ago. It is back in operation, you must have just missed it. Unfortunately when updating something like this it is very time consuming and the safety guidelines were our top... More

Location is excellent on a hilltop and the view is if the town below. The best location in Ketchikan with a good size of rooms. We found the mountain view rooms better than sea view. In sea view the main view is the dock and not the sea. Take a room on higher floors as the lower ones get a... More

The Lodge was a wonderful place to stay while we waited for our cruise ship to "catch up" with us. We loved the location, the room, and especially the décor. The staff were absolutely wonderful. After I mentioned that I did not want to sit in the lower section of the restaurant because the chair made my back hurt, they... More

We are always treated so well here! I took my daughter on date here today and after I chased her to the bathroom I signed the receipt and left without actually paying. After a nice facebook message about my mistake I was told "Happy Mother's Day!" Instead of being upset with me, they treated me! Thank you Heather Guthrie and... More

Stayed in late April before the start of the cruise ships and all the tourists. Great location and views. Trail leading to Creek Street is not too steep and well lit and maintained. Staff was very helpful and everything was very clean and well kept. More of a lodge feel than a hotel.
