This is a great place to stay. right on the river. Great fishing. Melody is so friendly. I will be back. Great location in Soldotna. Close to everything. I have stayed here several time. It seems like the same people come back year after year which speaks good for the lodge. Its just like a big family.

Kaylee greeted us our first night at the lodge and was very accommodating and helpful. We got to our room and had the most amazing view of the Kenai river with private access to fish for the sockeye salmon that had just started running. They have a beautiful lounge there that serves appetizers or you can order from local restaurants... More

I had a river view room. It was ok. The room was pretty warm. They had a small fan in the room that you could plug in, but it didn't seem to do much more than make a lot of noise. The door got hung up on the carpet easily, so opening the door required you to put your shoulder... More

The location of this lodge can't be beat! Walking distance to food and shops with invigorating River views from the rooms, this was a great place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable, but a little loud- nothing that earplugs couldn't solve for a great night sleep. The room was dated, but adequate and would be perfect for summer... More

Had a fun time fishing the kenai behind this lodge. Our room had a great view of the river. Nice to have some exclusive access to fishing there. Was nice to be able to warm up in our room (was cold and rainy when we fished)

This place is really for fisherman as there are places for gear and even a place to go down to the river to fish. I picked it because it looked nice on the web and we didn't know much about the area. Room was large enough, clean and just across the river from the visitor center.

Loved this hotel! Best bed/sleep of my whole vacation. Fan in closet very convenient. Walk right out of room and down to river. Bar onsite to relax after day of fishing. Near several stores and restaurants. Soldotna is a beautiful town. I could have stayed there a couple more days.

Such a pleasant place to stop and spend the night. Located right on the river, which made it fun for my daughter to go wet a line. Staff was super nice and check in was a breeze. Later that evening we went to the lounge at the lodge and although they do not have dinner menus, they do have some... More

This place was awesome! Grills and a fire pit right on the river. All rooms have a river view. Super clean. We enjoyed our stay watching people fish while we grilled steaks and had s'mores over the fire. They have huge freezers to keep your catch too!

Our room in the lodge was clean and comfortable. It had a nice view of the river, which is beautiful. There are good restaurants nearby. It's a great location for fishing, which we did not have time for on our trip.
