Need a ride from the train? Need a tour? Need a beer? They're happy to help. You don't often stay at a place that's a one stop shop in such an easy way. No pushing, no selling, just friendly knowledgeable folks trying to show off their town. Not to mention the best high season deal in town. Only wish they... More

The room was reasonable. I just wish they had small refrigerators. The best part of staying here was the bakery. We are vegetarians and had the pasties, quiche, and banana bread for dinner and breakfast. It was delicious! T

We stayed in room #2. It was comfortable and the staff was great. The showers were just down the hall and it was no big deal. The breakfast was outstanding. It was fun staying at the historic Roadhouse on our first trip to Alaska. The only thing that was a little disturbing was since smoking wasn't allowed in the building,... More

The Talkeetna Roadhouse is the real deal. Not that many of these things exist anymore; particularly in villages which have become so overrun with visitors as Talkeetna (still charming and a great stopover on the way to Denali; but tourists probably outnumber locals and climbers by a thousand to one). Trisha and her crew are super friendly and helpful. Their... More

We loved the Roadhouse. We stayed in the bunk room which was perfect for our needs. Shared bathrooms down the hall worked out just fine. The Roadhouse fits the town of Talkeetna which we found very charming and rugged. Just the sort of place you would expect to stay in Talkeetna and the price was right. They serve an amazing... More

While at Talkeetna(Alaska), do visit Road House Hotel for it’s popular breakfast all day, provided you can find a chair. If you are travelling with family then you may want to skip staying there as they have only submarine bunks. The l’il cottage we got barely had room for two people to pass each other, the main door didn't close... More

Hello! I appreciate your review of the 'Lil Cabin in the Back and of your time here at the Roadhouse. We are indeed a popular, hopping old roadhouse and part of the experience is, well, just that: an experience! The 'Lil Cabin is appropriately named and most folks really love the cozyness of the log walls, comfy beds, gas fireplace... More

Very good food. If you are going for breakfast, get there early. Grab a seat wherever you can as it is family style seating. This is a great way to meet new people. The food is good and the atmosphere is like being in an old farmhouse. You can get huge cinnamon rolls too up at the counter which we... More

I have stayed in every room in the main part of the Roadhouse and every single one is FANTASTIC!!! Shared showers and washrooms but they are always very clean and accessible. Super comfortable beds and great customer service! I recently stayed in their newest addition the Garden Cabin and fell in love! It is off sight tucked away from the... More

The Roadhouse was exactly what I wanted and hoped for. I wanted an experience in a Roadhouse that used to host miners and trappers and that's exactly what this 101 year-old roadhouse provided! I loved staying in the original log-cabin construction part of it. I don't mind sharing a bathroom (it was well taken care of) as they used to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Roadhouse, built around 1917, is one of the oldest establishments still in operation on Main Street in "Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna." Our kitchen is open to the public and we've become famous for big breakfasts, hearty soups, homebaked breads and genuine frontier hospitality. Our bakery produces all sorts of treats each day such as pies, a variety of cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory pasties. The historic end-of-the-road town of Talkeetna is known today throughout the world as the base for international climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America's tallest peak. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of around 800 people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and halfway between Anchorage and Denali park entrance both by rail and road. The guest rooms range from private to hostel-style, rustic cabins to the school teacher's apartment located above the Talkeetna Historical Society Museum. Bathrooms are "down the hall" in typical Roadhouse fashion, and even though a bathroom has been added to Trapper John's Cabin, guests can still use its 5-Star outhouse! Breakfast is a separate charge but we provide our guests with coffee/cocoa/tea throughout their stay. ... more   less
