We stayed in Kenai during the off season for salmon runs so my review won't speak for peak run times. The rooms were clean and nice with a nice view of the Kenai River. They even provided us with ice to pack our Halibut in. The price we paid was very reasonable for the accommodations.

I stayed here for two nights this summer while I was on a break working the Swan Lake Fire. Pretty much anything would seem top notch after spending a couple weeks on the ground, but I did truly enjoy my stay at the lodge. The price was reasonable and the room was comfortable. There are hooks outside of the lodge doors so you can leave wet gear hanging outside to dry. I enjoyed sitting on the docks that they have to fish from, you can literally fish right from the lodge. There is a variety of seating outside - benches, chairs and a swing, which is really nice. There is a bar at the lodge, I just went for one drink, and didn't eat. I would stay there again, it is super reasonable and homey.

Right on the Kenai River and a relaxing stay. Hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable. Plenty of off street parking and the staff was great to work with. There is a nice lounge upstairs that is obviously popular with the local crowd.

Place was kept clean. Right off main road. A lot of things to do or to drive. There's a bar upstairs. Out the back, every room had a view of the river. If you fish, you might want to stay here, as There's a fish cleaning station at river. There's also a fire pit & outdoor grill.
